Samuel Huguenin Symbolic Quartet: L'Exile des Nymphes

Read "L'Exile des Nymphes" reviewed by Luigi Sforza


Un piacevole e significativo numero di idee musicali--ben argomentate--sono presenti in L'Exile des Nymphes, album del giovane sassofonista svizzero Samuel Huguenin, che a capo di un pregevole quartetto esplora antiche danze musicali ("Estampie"); mescola essenze melodiche balcaniche con arabesche cadenze musicali ("Mescaline"); si esprime con inflessioni che lasciano immaginare gli strumenti ad ancia dell'Epiro ("Sikkim," ballad ...

Gabriel Zufferey: Contemplation (piano solo)

Read "Contemplation (piano solo)" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff


È possibile costruire un disco su ben tredici standard, per di più in piano solo, senza cadere nella retorica, nell'esercizio stilistico o, nel migliore dei casi, in una delicata e rischiosa operazione di destrutturazione/ricomposizione? Ascoltando Contemplation potremmo rispondere di si. Il ventottenne pianista svizzero Gabriel Zufferey, qui al debutto solitario dopo avere inciso con un solido ...

Gabriel Zufferey: Contemplation

Read "Contemplation" reviewed by Jeff Dayton-Johnson


Jazz mashups are in the air. First, pianist Robert Glasper artfully wove pianist Herbie Hancock's “Maiden Voyage" together with Radiohead's “Everything in its Right Place" on the his In My Element (Blue Note, 2007). The Jazz Punks' raucous Smashups (Foam @ the Mouth, 2012) mashed up saxophonist Sonny Rollins with guitarist Jimi Hendrix, and Led Zeppelin ...

Gabriel Zufferey: Hear & Know

Read "Hear & Know" reviewed by Jeff Dayton-Johnson


This satisfying, varied and coherent date sounds like the work of a mature group leader, but in fact it is only the second release from twenty-something Swiss pianist Gabriel Zufferey. His first, Après l'orage, a trio outing with heavyweight French drummer Daniel Humair and bassist Sébastien Boisseau, came out on Bee Jazz in 2005 to very ...

E' ancora possibile, nel 2006, fare del jazz-jazz e riuscire ad essere interessanti? Nella maggior parte dei casi, la mia personalissima risposta a questa domanda è un secco “NO”, ma nel caso dei No Square mi vedo costretto (peraltro molto volentieri) a fare un'eccezione.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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!
