Giancarlo Tossani: Strange Spy

Read "Strange Spy" reviewed by Emmanuel Di Tommaso

Proprio dopo aver raggiunto l'ideale sublimazione sonora e l'equilibrio strutturale nell'album Newswok con il progetto Synapser ed il contributo di Ralph Alessi, il pianista e compositore di stanza a Cremona rimescola le proprie carte creative ripartendo (quasi) da zero con il progetto-disco Strange Spy che, fin dal titolo (anagramma di G. T. Synapser), si presenta in ...

Giancarlo Tossani Synapser + Ralph Alessi: Newswok

Read "Newswok" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Terzo episodio di un'avventurosa ricerca musicale chiamata Synapser, Newswok ha tutte le carte in regola per timbrare a fuoco con il marchio della qualità più sofisticata il quartetto del pianista e compositore Giancarlo Tossani. Non solo per la presenza tutt'altro che accessoria del talento di Ralph Alessi, non solo perché Auand è etichetta che ha sostenuto ...

Giancarlo Tossani Synapser + Alessi: Newswok

Read "Newswok" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Wonders never cease. When Newswok first arrived in the mail, my first question was not “What the hell does 'Newswok' mean?"

01. Kneebody - Kneebody (Green Leaf - 2005). È davvero il mio disco dell’anno, pregnante e gustoso: libero jazz in libero melting-pop. Enfasi? 02. Glenn Gould - Goldberg Variations. Bach è un ossimoro (gr. oxymoron “acuta follia”), logica emozionante, rigore appassionante, pensiero lirico… e Gould ne è lo speciale paradossale interprete, un turbine intelligente. 03. Paul ...

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.
