Reciprocal Uncles - Gianni Lenoci, Gianni Mimmo: The Whole Thing

Read "The Whole Thing" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Emozioni contrastanti accompagnano l'ascolto di questo ultimo lavoro dei Reciprocal Uncles, il duo che da anni univa Gianni Mimmo e Gianni Lenoci, registrato appena quattro mesi prima della scomparsa del pianista, avvenuta lo scorso 30 Settembre. Il disco non è il solo a documentare postumo la maestria di Lenoci (è da poco uscito The Uncle (Giano ...

Francesco Cusa Trio, Francesco Cusa & The Assassins: The Uncle (Giano Bifronte)

Read "The Uncle (Giano Bifronte)" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

The Uncle, lo zio, ovvero Gianni Lenoci, così veniva chiamato dagli amici intimi il pianista, compositore, pensatore prematuramente scomparso nel settembre dell'anno passato. Ma il legame tra Francesco Cusa e l'artista barese era di quelli che andavano ben oltre le convenzioni di una pur solida amicizia. Non solo, allora, un doppio CD a lui dedicato il ...

Saxophonist Ohad Talmor's new release, Long Forms, with his Newsreel sextet has just been released by Intakt Records and it's a must-listen; strong playing by some of the best musicians around, complicated but highly interesting tunes and arrangements, and a fully realized project.

Fredrik Lundin, Francesco Cusa, and Gianni Lenoci

Read "Fredrik Lundin, Francesco Cusa, and Gianni Lenoci" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

It's just one of those happy coincidences that bassist Lisa Mezzacappa, whose name is likely Italian in orgin, is one of the featured artists in this episode, because there's noticeable Italian content as well. Mezzacappa's latest with her ensemble Six, is inspired by the short stories of Italo Calvino (also Italian). Music from Italian musicians comes ...

Gianni Lenoci, madrelingua jazz

Read "Gianni Lenoci, madrelingua jazz" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

La sera di lunedì 30 settembre, dopo breve malattia, è scomparso Gianni Lenoci, pianista, compositore, didatta, teorico, intellettuale tra i più originali e prestigiosi del nostro Paese. Non era forse un nome molto conosciuto al grande pubblico, Gianni, vuoi per il rigore artistico che lo portava a non confondere mai l'arte con l'intrattenimento, vuoi per la ...

Francesco Cusa & The Assassins Meets Duccio Bertini: Black Poker

Read "Black Poker" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Singolare e riuscita interazione tra un quartetto jazz e un cameristico quartetto d'archi, operata attraverso la mediazione di due musicisti curiosi e coraggiosi -il batterista Francesco Cusa, che ha portato con sé i suoi The Assassins, e il compositore e direttore d'orchestra Duccio Bertini, che ha arrangiato i brani, in gran parte di Cusa e in ...

Il Meglio del 2018 Secondo Neri Pollastri

Read "Il Meglio del 2018 Secondo Neri Pollastri" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Anche quest'anno, faticosamente e responsabilmente, ho selezionato tra i miei numerosi ascolti dodici dischi e dieci concerti che potessero essere considerati se non “i migliori," quantomeno “tra i migliori." La selezione è fatalmente influenzata non solo dalle mie predilezioni (non si può ascoltar tutto e fatalmente ci si concentra su ciò che per qualche ragione ci ...

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.
