Massimo Colombo: Acoustic Weather (The Music of Weather Report)

Read "Acoustic Weather (The Music of Weather Report)" reviewed by Jim Worsley


Depending on your point of view, Weather Report either defined or redefined fusion during the 1970s. Their vivid approach and instrumental dynamics were mind blowing back then and still set the bar. Somehow pianist Joe Zawinul and saxophonist Wayne Shorter, always buoyed by a top-notch rhythm section, defied the odds by creating spirited fusion without the ...

Massimo Colombo, Maurizio Quintavalle, Enzo Zirilli: Powell To The People

Read "Powell To The People" reviewed by Luca Casarotti


Non c'è tipo d'ensemble, dal duo all'orchestra, con cui il pianista Massimo Colombo non abbia voluto cimentarsi, nelle vesti sia di compositore che d'esecutore. Per uno studio sulla musica di Bud Powell, il trio canonico con basso e batteria è la scelta più ovvia, ma anche quella che più espone al rischio di essere schiacciati dal ...

Massimo Colombo: Powell To The People

Read "Powell To The People" reviewed by Jim Worsley

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!
