Aspen Edities: The Album as a Work of Art

Read "Aspen Edities: The Album as a Work of Art" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

It's a paradox of the digital age that it has spawned some of the most beautiful physical editions of music, but perhaps it's quite logical.

Belgian guitarist/composer Ruben Machtelinckx has built an impressive catalog of recordings as a leader since graduating from the Royal Conservatory of Antwerp in 2010. He tends to work in groups with no drummer, a chamber jazz approach that suits his lyrical, sometimes minimalist compositions well.

Leroux - Landfermann - Burgwinkel: Leroux - Landfermann - Burgwinkel

Read "Leroux - Landfermann - Burgwinkel" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Frederik Leroux, Robert Landfermann, Jonas Burgwinkel scelgono l'approccio diretto e senza compromessi che i critici americani solitamente definiscono con il tag 'take no prisoners,' ma lo fanno seguendo non la lezione hendrixiana, come sarebbe facile presupporre, vista la strumentazione: lo fanno invece cercando di catturare le brume dell'avanguardia e i sussurri dell'improvvisazione più creativa e iconoclasta. ...
