Myra Melford, Zeena Parkins, Miya Masaoka: M Z M

Read "M Z M" reviewed by Stefano Merighi


Magnifico trio di veterane della musica improvvisata che superano se stesse con una musica acuminata, provocatoria, anarchica ma dall'assoluto rigore interno. Vale a dire che pur infrangendo continuamente le regole del bon ton musicale e rischiando assai nel rifiuto quasi assiomatico del discorso narrativo, il trio trova con naturalezza una conversazione paritaria ma soprattutto sensata, cpunta ...

Steve Buscemi/Elliott Sharp: Rub Out The Word

Read "Rub Out The Word" reviewed by Mark Corroto


Is it significant that Frank Sinatra (1915-1998) and William S. Burroughs (1914-1997) were born just one year apart? Maybe. Sinatra began as a teen idol, before developing into American's bon vivant and arbiter of cool, and finally a cranky old man. On the other hand, the writer Burroughs was born a cranky old man, and perpetuated ...

Steve Buscemi/Elliott Sharp: Rub Out The Word

Read "Rub Out The Word" reviewed by Mark Sullivan


You don't have to follow Beat literature to have some familiarity with writer William S. Burroughs, especially in his spoken word role. Performance artist Laurie Anderson collaborated with him several times, notably on You're the Guy I Want to Share My Money With (Giorno Poetry Systems, 1981) and Mister Heartbreak (Warner Bros., 1984). Bill Laswell's Material ...

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!
