Tony Malaby, Tania Gill & The Gathering

Read "Tony Malaby, Tania Gill & The Gathering" reviewed by Maurice Hogue


I decided to lay out for most of this last episode of 2021 and just let the music roll. There are a couple of new releases in the mix, one from Tony Malaby and a somewhat revamped Sabino and Toronto pianist Tania Gill's Disappearing Curiosities. Definitely check out the great singer, Dwight Trible, and his rendition ...

It Takes Two to Jazz: Part I

Read "It Takes Two to Jazz: Part I" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu


This week we focus on the art of the duo. A challenging format as one does neither have the complete freedom of a solo nor the support of a larger band. Yet, in the hands of the right artists, it can produce magical music. Happy listening! Ben Allison “Mondo Jazz Theme ...

Gianluigi Trovesi: dal solo alle orchestre

Read "Gianluigi Trovesi: dal solo alle orchestre" reviewed by Libero Farnè


Non era più giovanissimo Gianluigi Trovesi quando alla fine degli anni Settanta venne alla ribalta nel sestetto di Giorgio Gaslini, che nei concerti lo presentava come “l'improvvisatore che viene dalle montagne." Il sassofonista e clarinettista infatti è nato e cresciuto a Nembro, nella Valle Seriana, dove ha mosso i suoi primi passi musicali all'interno della banda ...

Indeed, the earth can be a delightfully bizarre habitat. With this ten-piece aggregation assembled by pianist, musicologist Oliver Schwerdt and featuring legendary improvisers Barry Guy (bass) and Gunter 'Baby' Sommer (drums, perc), ideas, and perhaps life itself penetrate through unchartered peripheries of time and reason. This European ensemble toys with your psyche due to ...

Tibor Prettschnöder: The Largo And The Lame

Read "The Largo And The Lame" reviewed by Mark Corroto


By now it is generally accepted that there is such a category as Germanic free improvisation. One separate from the Peter Brötzmann, Alexander von Schlippenbach, Günter Sommer, Peter Kowald, Manfred Schoof, Gerd Dudek, Albert Mangelsdorff, etc, etc. school of free jazz that machine-gunned its way into the European scene of the late 1960s. These new rebels ...

Trombone x 4 (x 4)

Read "Trombone x 4 (x 4)" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro


Che ci sia un trombone a guidare la cosiddetta front line di un gruppo jazz, ammettiamolo, non è merce poi così usuale. Ci fa quindi piacere, amando particolarmente il suono rotondo, pieno, evocativo dello strumento, legare uno con l'altro quattro album che praticano tale formula, incisi e pubblicati nel giro di pochi mesi, tra la fine ...
