Read "Ain’t Nothing But A Cyber Coup & You" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro


Brani ampi (sei) intercalati da fugaci “tavole preparatorie" (non più di un minuto), minimali anche in quanto a dispiegamento di forze in campo, con una dedica iniziale e una finale, fissano l'istantanea, la radiografia, di questo nuovo lavoro del notevole settetto riunito da Mark Dresser già tre anni or sono (una sola variante di organico: il ...
