Roberto Bonati: Vesper and Silence

Read "Vesper and Silence" reviewed by John Kelman

Roberto Bonati may not be a name familiar to many jazz fans in North America, but at home in Italy and, increasingly, across Europe he has become a far more familiar face. Beyond inimitable talents as a double bassist, composer and conductor, Bonati has created a name both for himself and the northern Italian city of ...

Roberto Bonati: Macbeth and the Whale

Read "Roberto Bonati: Macbeth and the Whale" reviewed by Duncan Heining

Italian bassist-composer Robert Bonati is one of the most ambitious and literate composers in contemporary jazz. Between 2000-2006, he released four ground-breaking extended works with the ParmaFrontiere Orchestra. While they attracted notice in Italy, they seemed to pass by the wider jazz audience in Europe, North America and the Far East. If at one level, the ...

Piacentini-Bonati-McCandless-Moreno: Circles

Read "Piacentini-Bonati-McCandless-Moreno: Circles" reviewed by John Kelman

Piacentini-Bonati-McCandless-Moreno CirclesNueva1991 Today's Rediscovery will be a challenge for most; few will have heard of the record, and of those that have, even fewer will actually own it. Circles' biggest draw may be Paul McCandless--the reed and woodwind multi-instrumentalist who has, with Ralph Towner and Glen Moore, performed with the genre-busting ...

Mai Jazz 2014 Stavanger, Norway May 6-11, 2014 After visiting Norway as often as four or five times annually, a first trip to the country in early May is surprisingly late for a first visit of the year. The last time visiting the west coast city of Stavanger was in 2008, part ...

Fabio Crespiatico: Portraits

Read "Portraits" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Portraits si apre con una sentita versione di “Eiderdown" (di Steve Swallow), nella quale i componenti del quartetto guidato da Fabio Crespiatico danno prova della loro presenza scenica e della propria cifra stilistica: un lavoro di sette brani che solcano la via maestra di un jazz - intenso e stratificato - che prende spunto dalla tradizione ...

Mario Piacentini: Un altro dicembre

Read "Un altro dicembre" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Relativamente poco conosciuto in Italia (lo ricordiamo, tra l'altro, nello splendido Night Caller di Rita Marcotulli, disco di quindici anni orsono), Tore Brunborg è un quarantasettenne sassofonista norvegese dalle qualità davvero straordinarie, che si aggiunge al trio del pianista Mario Piacentini (clicca qui per leggere la recensione del loro precedente lavoro, Ancora sogni) per concorrere alla ...

Mario Piacentini

Read "Mario Piacentini" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

01. Tore Brunborg - Gravity (Vossa Jazz Records - 2003). Tore Brunborg che artista! L’arte senza scopo; la misura, la poesia, l’uomo, il Jazz che non è Jazz... Quando ascolto questo CD mi succede una cosa strana: è come se annullassi mentalmente gli esecutori, in particolar modo Tore, e venissi raggiunto solo dai loro suoni che ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
