Jason Roebke Octet: Cinema Spiral

Read "Cinema Spiral" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

La spirale del cinema a cui Jason Roebke si riferisce in questa seconda registrazione con il suo affiatato ottetto porta l'impronta di Alfred Hitchcock, con assonanze che rimandano a Vertigo, sia nel titolo che nel tema musicale che apre il CD e lo percorre tutto, ripresentandosi in altri brani e dando un carattere fortemente unitario al ...

The widely acclaimed collaborative nature of the contemporary Chicago jazz scene is expertly demonstrated on Cinema Spiral, the sophomore effort by double bassist Jason Roebke's all-star Octet, which continues the creative in-roads made on the unit's celebrated 2014 Delmark Records debut, High/Red/Center.

Cinema Spiral constitutes the sophomore effort by his Octet, following on from High/Red/Center ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
