Spike Wilner: Koan

Read "Koan" reviewed by Mark Corroto


I have an idea that pianist Spike Wilner has read Kenny Werner's book Effortless Mastery: Liberating The Master Musician Within (1996), because Koan emulates Werner's lessons in surrendering one's self to music.

Tyshawn Sorey: Koan

Read "Koan" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff


Parlando un paio d'anni fa dell'esordio da leader del giovane e talentuoso batterista Tyshawn Sorey [il disco si chiamava That/Not], dichiaravamo con onestà il nostro disorientamento di fronte a una scelta espressiva originale, ma alla fine poco convincente, quella di una musica astratta e filigranata, nella quale il grande magistero ritmico del musicista - che ricordiamo ...

Tyshawn Sorey: Koan

Read "Koan" reviewed by Mark Corroto

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!
