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

Read "Resonance & Rapsodies" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Roberto Ottaviano torna a riunire la formazione con la quale nel 2018 aveva realizzato l'eccellente Eternal Love, ne sviluppa ancora le potenzialità e, non pago, compie un ulteriore passo in avanti, allargando la formazione da quintetto a ottetto --di fatto un doppio quartetto-- trasformandola in Extended Love. Con risultati, va detto subito, stupefacenti. Il ...

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 ...

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 ...

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.
