Sidney Jacobs: If I Were Your Woman

Read "If I Were Your Woman" reviewed by Richard J Salvucci

Michael Blake: Red Hook Soul

Read "Red Hook Soul" reviewed by Maurizio Comandini


Il saxofonista canadese Michael Blake è ormai newyorkese fino in fondo all'anima ma se date retta ai profumi che si spargono nell'aria ascoltando questo ottimo Red Hook Soul si direbbe che, quando serve, almeno una parte della sua anima si trasferisca magicamente nelle vie di New Orleans, a caccia di quel groove solido, viscerale e fantasioso ...
