John O'Gallagher's Axiom: Line of Sight

Read "Line of Sight" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff


Spesso i parametri ritmici di una composizione influenzano direttamente l’andamento melodico e la natura delle improvvisazioni. Sopra un beat spezzato, una figurazione divisa in due o tre parti, il tema si inarca, si distende, acquista un andamento obliquo.

These similar-sounding building blocks are then taken apart, reassembled, and subjected to an astonishing variety of treatments, so that through differences in ...

Years after the saxophone battles had ended, musicians have taken to reenacting them in safe environments, far from the bloodletting bandstands they once occupied. Cutting contests are now cooperative ventures. And, yes Virginia, we all win.
