Myriad3: Vera

Read "Vera" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


Nell'affollato universo dei piano trio, i canadesi del Myriad 3 confermano il loro approccio personale fondato su calibrati equilibri musicali, in un gioco minimalista dove confluiscono elementi di rock progressivo e musica da camera. La loro musica è attentamente progettata e il pianoforte di Chris Donnelly svolge un ruolo davvero paritario con il contrabbasso di Dan ...

Myriad3: Vera

Read "Vera" reviewed by Jerome Wilson


The number of contemporary jazz piano trios that take their inspiration from non-jazz sources seems to grow all the time.

Myriad3: Moons

Read "Moons" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Se quell'esordio s'ispirava al trio EST di Esbjörn Svensson ora la ricerca si fa più autonoma, ponendo in essere ...

Matt Newton: Within Reach

Read "Within Reach" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


The piano only has 88 keys but an infinite number of possibilities are trapped within those black and white beauties. The instrument just sits and waits for the right people to come along and discover these yet-to-be-heard sounds. Judging from this album, Matt Newton is one of the right people. On Within Reach, ...
