Herb Robertson


Herb Robertson is an avant-garde jazz trumpeter, flugelhornist and music producer. He combines a thorough command of traditional and extended techniques with a prodigious imagination.

Robertson began collecting jazz records, listening to all styles from Louis Armstrong to the avant-garde and especially the era’s hard bop. In high school he led a quintet that played dances. During 1969-73 he attended the Berklee School Of Music as an instrumental performance major, a period in which his improvisational skills became highly developed

Simon Nabatov 3 + 2: Verbs

Read "Verbs" reviewed by John Sharpe

What constitutes a composition? German-based Russian-born pianist Simon Nabatov makes a convincing case that a simple verbal instruction can suffice on Verbs. It is not a claim he makes himself, but the six supposed improvisations each mines such a distinctive seam that, although spontaneously conceived without melody or other formal arrangement, the initial proposition proves enough. ...

Per fortuna John Cage ha già ampiamente chiarito che il silenzio non esiste in quanto tale e quindi il percorso silenzioso intrapreso da Yanda non ha punti in comune, se non nelle cose ovvie, con il percorso ...
