Stefano Leonardi, Marco Colonna, Antonio Bertoni, Fridolin Blumer, Heinz Geisser: Aura

Read "Aura" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

Aura è un buon titolo per questo lavoro, che vede impegnato il quintetto del flautista trentino Stefano Leonardi, già protagonista con lo stesso organico del CD l'Eterno, pubblicato nel 2018 sempre dall'etichetta Leo Records. Rispetto alla frenetica turbolenza che impregnava l'opera precedente, qui ci troviamo alla ricerca di una tavolozza che amplia gli episodi eterei e ...

Stefano Leonardi / Stefano Pastor / Fridolin Blumer / Heinz Geisser: Conversations about Thomas Chapin

Read "Conversations about Thomas Chapin" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni

American saxophonist and flautist Thomas Chapin left the planet too soon, on February 13th, 1998 after a year-long battle with leukemia, when he was only forty years old. His inspiring spirit lives on, as the heartfelt tribute by Italian flautist Stefano Leonardi proves. Leonardi doesn't attempt to recreate the sorely missed Chapin's sound, or the unique, ...

Ensemble 5: Solstice

Read "Solstice" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Drummer Heinz Geisser's robust discography for Leo Records implies an active mind on the loose via his firm footing in the avant spectrum. He now expands his Collective 4tet to Ensemble 5, offering a combination of youth and experience coalescing into an idea factory of sorts. No two pieces sound distinctly alike, which is not always ...

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.
