Rossano Baldini: Light

Read "Light" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Ispirato dalla parole spese sul tema da Italo Calvino nelle Lezioni Americane, questo progetto del pianista Rossano Baldini vuol essere una realizzazione dell'idea di leggerezza, costruita a partire da una selezione di brani (o spezzoni di brano) di musica elettronica e per mezzo di accurate e coraggiose sperimentazioni in sala di registrazioni. A renderlo ...

Read "Light" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni

Giovanni Mazzarino: Light

Read "Light" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Per questa sua ultima uscita discografica, Giovanni Mazzarino sceglie un trio di ottimi musicisti siciliani (ma Panascia è da anni residente negli States), ai quali affianca il navigato Adam Nussbaum, già membro - assieme a Steve Swallow - del trio con cui Mazzarino aveva registrato Nostalgia (Splasch, 2002). La formazione non manca certo di qualità tecniche ...

ETHEL: Light

Read "Light" reviewed by John Kelman

These days musicians raised in compartmentalized traditions can find themselves challenged by the homogeneous blending of diverse musical interests.

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.
