Nuovo album, ancora una volta targato Intakt, per il sassofonista Chris Speed in trio con Chris Tordini, contrabbasso, e Dave King, batteria. Un trio, ormai ben rodato, in grado di tradurre con alta coerenza stilistica e formale architetture di classica derivazione bop ma lavorando come Speed ci ha ormai abituato da tempo. La sua verifica strutturale ...

Lisa Hoppe, Sorey & Crispell, Gebhard Ullman and More

Read "Lisa Hoppe, Sorey & Crispell, Gebhard Ullman and More" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

This episode is very wide-ranging in styles and sounds; the boundaries keep expanding. I was very impressed with bassist Lisa Hoppe's new trio, Third Reality, with saxophonist David Leon and guitarist Tal Yahalom. Very original stuff! It's on a German label—Jazzhausmusik—so do some digging to find it. It's well worth the effort. Drummer, composer and influencer ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
