Ludovico Granvassu's 2021 Sonic Delights

Read "Ludovico Granvassu's 2021 Sonic Delights" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu


Jazz is not a competitive sport and “Best Ofs" are misnomers. End of the year listicles have no bearing on the artistic standing of the albums they include, or on those they neglect, just like a five star review doesn't make the album it graces any better than it already is. But, apparently, humans ...

With flutist Itai Kriss and his band, Telavana, spanning the two, that distance seems to vanish. Kriss, a native Israeli, has spent the past fifteen years immersed in the scene in his adopted home ...
