Ivo Perelman: Artificial Intelligence

Read "Artificial Intelligence" reviewed by Jeff Schwartz

Do not be misled by the title: no bots or algorithms were involved in creating this album. While there have been fascinating experiments in improvisation with interactive software by George Lewis, Richard Teitelbaum and others, Artificial Intelligence is just under an hour of spontaneous human interaction by two of the most prolific and uncategorizable improvisers in ...

Andrew Cyrille, Elliot Sharp, Richard Teitelbaum: Evocation

Read "Andrew Cyrille, Elliot Sharp, Richard Teitelbaum: Evocation" reviewed by Howard Mandel

Evocation is what all writing about music must be about and may be the mission of music itself. To create an impression, to summon a memory or tender a suggestion of presence using materials that are not substantially those of the endeavor's subject--isn't that the fundamental purpose of any art? Not to be pretentious ...

Xhosa Cole: Ibeji

Read "Ibeji" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Few places on the global jazz scene are enjoying the enthusiastic resurgence of the genre more than the UK. Names that are becoming more familiar—Binker Golding, Nubya Garcia, Idris Rahman, Shabaka Hutchings and others—have triggered something of a youth movement. Emerging in that group is yet another top-notch saxophonist, Xhosa Cole. Cole's sophomore release, Ibeji is ...

Bobby Previte: Boom-Boom. Due volte Boom

Read "Bobby Previte: Boom-Boom. Due volte Boom" reviewed by Vic Albani

Dopo sostanziali anni di attività per certi versi limitata, il genio Bobby Previte torna a cavalcare comete musicali di infinita bellezza e intelligenza. Credo esistano ben pochi musicisti così profondi, analitici, curiosi ed allo stesso tempo così schivi e umili come Previte, da sempre nel cuore di ogni illuminato cultore di musiche moderne. Illuminato ...

Read "Roberto Zorzi: esplorazione senza confini" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Il percorso musicale del chitarrista Roberto Zorzi è così ricco ed eclettico che è impossibile includerlo in un particolare genere musicale. L'iniziale amore per visionari artisti rock come Robert Fripp e Brian Eno s'è arricchito nel tempo di approcci, tanto liberi quanto anticonvenzionali, di Derek Bailey e altri esponenti dell'avanguardia inglese degli anni settanta. La ricerca ...
