Hamid Drake & Bindu: Reggaeology

Read "Reggaeology" reviewed by John Sharpe


For the first two minutes of atmospheric discourse between the twin trombones of Jeb Bishop and Jeff Albert, and the human beatbox that is Napoléon Maddox, you would be forgiven for thinking that Hamid Drake's Reggaeology was an ironically titled free improv set. But that impression doesn't last. Infectious riddims kick in, based on Bob Marley's ...

Hamid Drake & Bindu: Reggaeology

Read "Reggaeology" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff


Il progetto [a organico variabile] Bindu del batterista Hamid Drake si inoltra nelle terre di Giamaica, attraverso quei ritmi reggae che sono sempre stati una delle principali fonti di ispirazione del musicista della Louisiana. È una ricognizione incessante, quella di Bindu, dei legami tra il linguaggio contemporaneo afroamericano - che Drake esplora con una assiduità che ...

Hamid Drake & Bindu: Blissful

Read "Blissful" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff


Non abbiamo mai fatto mistero della nostra ammirazione per Hamid Drake, come uomo e come percussionista: tra le figure più rappresentative del jazz nero contemporaneo, attivo quasi fino alla saturazione in mille progetti, senza perdere mai in smalto, umiltà, spiritualità, capacità tecniche [mostruose], Drake è artista in grado di dare in ogni circostanza un qualcosa in ...

Hamid Drake & Bindu: Bindu

Read "Bindu" reviewed by Ollie Bivens


Because jazz is rooted in improvisation, it can readily incorporate other musical genres and instruments. Especially since the '80s and the emergence of so-called world music, sounds and instruments from Asia, Africa and Latin America have found a welcome home in the music. Percussionist Hamid Drake has been among those at the forefront of this fusion. ...

Hamid Drake: Hamid Drake & Bindu

Read "Hamid Drake & Bindu" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff


Dunque Hamid Drake non è soltanto l’incantevole batterista in grado di nobilitare ogni musica che lo vede partecipe. La sua impresa di leader-compositore in Bindu lo illumina anche come regista sonoro di primo piano, in grado di influenzare benignamente le prove dei suoi amici sassofonisti, sempre fervidi di idee ma che qui trovano accenti espressivi rari. ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
