J.A. Granelli: Homing

Read "Homing" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff


J. Anthony Granelli si dimostra sempre più pronto a raccogliere il testimone dal padre, quel Jerry Granelli che rappresenta una delle figure più enigmatiche ed affascinati della scena jazzistica statunitense. Entrambi sembrano incapaci di rimanere all’interno delle linee guida che gli stili musicali vorrebbero tracciare e si danno da fare per spezzare catene, aprire spiragli, mischiare ...

J.A. Granelli and Mr. Lucky: Homing

Read "Homing" reviewed by Matt Cibula


J.A. Granelli is a bassist of great subtlety; his backing band, Mr. Lucky, is small and versatile. This album contains nine pieces that range from alt.countrified jazz (or jazzified alt.country, not quite sure there) to New Orleans-ish funky-esque strut to straight-ahead blues-ish atmospherical soft-leaning fusiony I-don't-know-what. As you can tell, it's kinda hard to categorize. I ...

J.A. Granelli and Mr. Lucky: Homing

Read "Homing" reviewed by John Kelman


Bassist J.A. Granelli's Mr. Lucky may be a totally revamped lineup from the group that released Gigantic (Love Slave, 2004), but its philosophy remains the same. Homing lives in a place somewhere between Ry Cooder's loose, pre-Buena Vista Social Club work and Bill Frisell's Good Dog, Happy Man, a collection of roots-oriented material that's about groove ...

J.A. Granelli and Mr. Lucky: Gigantic

Read "Gigantic" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan


The words “surf's up" keep coming to mind when I listen to bassist J.A. Granelli and Mr. Lucky's Gigantic. Though it may seem an odd comparison, the music here has that rough-around-the-edges groove mode of long ago guitar/organ-based surf music, a very early sixties (pre-Beatles) Southern California type of garage rock. These minor hit records from ...

J.A. Granelli and Mr. Lucky: Gigantic

Read "Gigantic" reviewed by Jerry D'Souza


The music that J.A. Granelli and Mr. Lucky make has nothing to do with jazz. That does not matter, for they serve up dollops of music that tantalizes and captivates even in the quietest moments. Granelli balances the structure of the album very well as he brings in different moods to keep the snare ...

J.A. Granelli and Mr. Lucky: Gigantic

Read "Gigantic" reviewed by Michael P. Gladstone


This is not going to be an album for everyone, but here are some potential candidates: listeners who feel that smooth jazz is too limited and without any real pulse rockers who are tired of the same old licks and Top 40 syndrome the disenchanted who yearn for music that's better suited than mainstream ...

J.A. Granelli and Mr. Lucky: Gigantic

Read "Gigantic" reviewed by John Kelman


What is jazz? Does anyone know anymore? When Bill Frisell won Downbeat's Album of the Year award a few years back for Nashville--an album that was long on Americana and bluegrass and, at least on initial inspection, short on the things that most people tended to associate with jazz--the landscape had clearly changed. And ...
