Rusconi: Revolution

Read "Revolution" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Revolution is in the air, and Rusconi knows it. The Swiss trio's fifth album sees it break with major record labels-- following its memorable tribute to indie-rock band Sonic Youth on It's a Sonic Life (Sony, 2010)--and head out into the great unknown of self-promotion. It's a bold move, but one befitting of the sonic explorers ...

Jurg Wickihalder European Quartet feat. Irene Schweizer: Jump !

Read "Jump !" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Wickihalden è un ottimo sassofonista della scena free svizzera, già validissimo collaboratore di Irene Schweizer, Pierre Favre e l'Omri Ziegele Billiger Bauer. Ma sul suo più recente disco pesano due influenze che alla fine lo rendono per lo più derivativo. Sia pur con liberi innesti di free-form di maniera, le cinque tracce guardano a Monk e ...

Fabian Gisler: Backyard Poets

Read "Backyard Poets" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Dopo studi di specializzazione ed un apprendistato in un ambito jazzistico piuttosto canonico, che lo hanno portato a collaborare con Ray Brown, Joe Lovano, George Gruntz, Dave Liebman ed altri, il contrabbassista Fabian Gisler, nato a Zurigo nel 1977, ha intrapreso vie più aperte, talvolta vicine all'improvvisazione radicale, senza però tralasciare mai un concreto legame con ...

Though he's played with some prime-time bandleaders--including pianists Bill Carrothers and Mark Soskin, saxophonist Gary Smulyan and guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel--Swiss bassist Fabian Gisler is a new name to me. Backyard Poets is his debut album as leader, and it's a pleasure to make his acquaintance, and those too of his colleagues Henrik Walsdorff, saxophones, Colin Vallon, ...

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
