Ferdinando Faraò & Artchipel Orchestra featuring Chris Cutler: To Lindsay: omaggio a Lindsay Cooper

Read "To Lindsay: omaggio a Lindsay Cooper" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero


Non sbagliano un colpo Ferdinando Faraò e quella poderosa macchina da musica che risponde al nome di Artchipel Orchestra. Che si tratti di materiale originale o di composizioni altrui -dall'esordio di Never Odd or Even passando per l'omaggio ai Soft Machine ed ora per il pianeta Lindsay Cooper -il risultato non cambia. La stessa meravigliosa sinfonia ...

Lindsay Cooper, Fred Frith, Gianni Gebbia, Lars Hollmer: Angels on the Edge of Time

Read "Angels on the Edge of Time" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro


A scorrere il parterre degli improvvisatori riuniti quel 30 maggio 1992 a Bologna per Angelica, la gloriosa rassegna che viveva allora il suo secondo anno di attività, non ci s'immaginerebbe di imbattersi poi in un prodotto così sostanzialmente amorfo, privo di reali sbocchi creativi, in soldoni di un'adeguata capacità di tener desta l'attenzione di chi ascolta. ...

Dark Companion: tra novità, fascinazione e nostalgia

Read "Dark Companion: tra novità, fascinazione e nostalgia" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro


Nata nel 2015 e gestita da un team di otto persone riunite attorno a Max Marchini, la piacentina Dark Companion ha dato alle stampe a fine anno i primi quattro CD di una serie che ci si augura lunga, vista la cura e il livello delle produzioni (anche in termini di grafica, confezione, ecc.).

Ferdinando Faraò & Artchipel Orchestra: Play Soft Machine

Read "Play Soft Machine" reviewed by Claudio Bonomi


Rivisitare materiale altrui è sempre un'operazione ad alto rischio. Soprattutto quando si decide di riarrangiare composizioni che si considerano intoccabili o che raramente sono state oggetto di riscritture successive alle originali. Parliamo del repertorio dei Soft Machine e, in particolare, di quello risalente al periodo 1969-1971, stagione irripetibile e generosa di idee e situazioni messe in ...

A Celebration of Lindsay Cooper (1951-2013)

Read "A Celebration of Lindsay Cooper (1951-2013)" reviewed by Duncan Heining


Lindsay Cooper Barbican London Jazz Festival November 21, 2014 I confess I'm less familiar with the work of the late composer and multi-instrumentalist Lindsay Cooper than I might be. On the basis of this gig, that's very much my loss. What brought me here was the fact that I did know ...

Mike Westbrook: Art Wolf at 75

Read "Mike Westbrook: Art Wolf at 75" reviewed by Duncan Heining


Close your eyes for a moment. Imagine a jazz composer who began with Ellington and then moved on through Mingus. He soon encompassed rock music, Kurt Weill, Rossini, the traditions of English church music and the pastoralism of Vaughan Williams and Holst, but still found a place in his music for The Beatles, European political cabaret ...

Mike Westbrook Orchestra: The Cortege

Read "The Cortege" reviewed by Chris May


At its richest, pianist/composer Mike Westbrook's work is to jazz what grand opera, in the classical world, is to chamber music. The Cortege is Westbrook at his richest, leading a 17-piece orchestra through an ambitious and brilliantly realized suite, loosely themed around the idea of a funeral procession and its after-party. Thirty years after its first ...

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!
