Big Lazy: Dear Trouble

Read "Dear Trouble" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

The trio Big Lazy plays a frisky type of instrumental music which draws on jazz, surf rock, country and other genres. In the tradition of versatile guitarists like Danny Gatton and Duane Eddy, Stephen Ulrich's lean, twanging sound creates a sonic landscape full of dusty highways and shadowy streets. He billows, trembles and chugs through leisurely ...

Read "Moaning, Whistling, Sighing and Other Jazz Sounds" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

Carlos Franzetti: Ricordare

Read "Ricordare" reviewed by Maurizio Zerbo

Il titolo del CD e il suo brano manifesto sono emblematici nell'esplicare il debito artistico di Carlos Franzetti per Ennio Morricone.

Lo testimonia una poliedrica cifra espressiva, che spazia dal tango ...

Several of the releases on my list are examples of that. Also this year had the usual ...
