MUSICIAN Born:

Gato Barbieri

Mystical yet fiery, passionately romantic yet supremely cool…You hear those first few notes from that instantly recognizable tenor and know you’re in the unique musical world of Gato Barbieri. Beginning professionally as a teenager playing alto sax in Buenos Aires clubs, Barbieri’s enduring career has covered virtually the entire jazz landscape, from free jazz (with trumpeter Don Cherry in the mid-60s) and avante garde to film scoring and his ultimate embrace of Latin music throughout the 70s and 80s. He began playing tenor with his own band in the late 50s and moved to Rome with his Italian born first wife Michelle in 1962, where he began collaborating with Cherry

Daniele Sepe: Le nuove avventure di Capitan Capitone

Read "Le nuove avventure di Capitan Capitone" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Musicista “totale," ben più che apprezzato jazzista, Daniele Sepe ha sempre amato i progetti ricchi di stimoli e di collaboratori (anche se in genere non altrettanto ricchi a livello di budget di produzione) nei quali comporre scintillanti mosaici fatti di tessere anche diversissime tra loro. Così, dopo aver sfornato The Cat with the Hat, eccellente omaggio ...

Eduardo Contizanetti, Giuliano Tull: Saurus

Read "Saurus" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Otto brani, firmati metà ciascuno, a esprimere una musica perlopiù caratterizzata da lirismo, ma non per questo priva di intensità dinamica e di costruzioni singolari: questo il programma di Saurus, autoproduzione del chitarrista argentino trapiantato in Friuli Eduardo Contizanetti e del sassofonista friulano Giuliano Tull, anni fa autore di un eccellente lavoro in quartetto, Boparte.

Sir Stevie: Jammin' on Stevie Wonder - Part 2

Read "Sir Stevie: Jammin' on Stevie Wonder - Part 2" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

Stevie Wonder has often infused his performances with compelling renditions of jazz standards like Miles' “All Blues" or Coltrane's “Giant Steps." In return, countless jazz musicians have looked into his Songbook for compositions that would provide them with a fertile ground for their own explorations. In the second part of our “Stevie @70" ...

Franco D'Andrea: Il pianoforte come sintesi di colori

Read "Franco D'Andrea: Il pianoforte come sintesi di colori" reviewed by Paolo Marra

Franco D'Andrea non è certo un musicista abituato a guardarsi indietro nonostante ormai da decenni rappresenti l'eccellenza del jazz italiano con più di duecento dischi incisi e svariati premi vinti. Il segreto di questa longevità artistica è da ritrovare nella sua capacità di aggiornare continuamente il suo lessico pianistico composto da riferimenti antropologici alla musica africana ...

Read "Coming Of Age - MANGAKU" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Various Artists: New Improvised Music from Buenos Aires

Read "New Improvised Music from Buenos Aires" reviewed by Mark Corroto

The answer to the musical question: where does improvised music thrive? Everywhere. Have you heard Lebanese trumpeter Mazen Kerbaj's recordings on Al Maslakh Records or free jazz from the Istanbul based unit Konstrukt?

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.
