Dan Moretti & Piccola Orchestra La Viola: The Journey

Read "The Journey" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

La Piccola Orchestra La Viola è un ensemble “povero," perlopiù composto da organetti che coronano la voce di Antonella Costanzo, sostenuti da un basso elettrico e delle percussioni. Il tutto diretto da Alessandro Parente, per mettere in scena solitamente una elegante world music che pesca nella tradizione per guardare al presente e al futuro. In questo ...

The State of The Saxophone Trio: Dan Moretti, Domenic Landolf, Jacob Duncan

Read "The State of The Saxophone Trio: Dan Moretti, Domenic Landolf, Jacob Duncan" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

There is something Baroque about jazz ensembles lacking a piano or guitar as a harmony instrument . Their absence frees previously occupied sonic space for other uses. The format also sets up a more pronounced contrapuntal interplay between the remaining players. The saxophone trio has become quite mainstream since Sonny Rollins blew into the Village Vanguard ...

Batteria ipercinetica, basso elettrico implacabile e funkeggiante, sax tenore che sospinto dalla ritmica così stimolante può permettersi di scorazzare in lungo e in ...

Dan Moretti: Tres Muse

Read "Tres Muse" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Northeast area saxophonist and Berklee School of Music educator Dan Moretti embarks on the piano-less jazz trio route, hearkening back to the impetus set forth by Sonny Rollins' 1957 Riverside classic, Way Out West. Since then, this framework has gained steam with modern jazz reedmen, sometimes leading to mixed results. Yet Marty Ballou's corpulent and limber ...

Dan Moretti and Once Through: Passing Place

Read "Passing Place" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

When I first heard saxophonist/bandleader Dan Moretti's Once Through, I loved the sound and proclaimed it “a wonderful debut." Moretti promptly wrote me (isn't email a great thing) to say that the release was his ninth as a leader. He was polite but insistent that I fix the published review. I complied, explaining that the sound ...
