Adrabesa Quartet: Phoenix

Read "Phoenix" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Slovenian saxophonist Vasko Atanasovski has a gift for marrying seemingly disparate sounds, styles and cultures, as demonstrated on this compelling date. Binding virtuoso Italian accordionist Simone Zanchini, French tuba titan Michel Godard and Polish drumming force Bodek Janke, and enhancing the scenery with the presence of his son, guest cellist Ariel Vei Atanasovski, this leader erases ...

Read "A Musical Tryptich: Between Jazz, Folklore And Song" reviewed by Friedrich Kunzmann

The three albums below come from international European groups (among them one with a substantial Asian infusion) who recognize no boundaries in music nor borders between nations. Taking a variety of musical idioms and traditions and turning them into something new, each musician here is inspired by the lack of musical limitations that allows them to ...

Francesco Massaro: zoologo imperfetto

Read "Francesco Massaro: zoologo imperfetto" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Francesco Massaro, quarantaduenne compositore, sassofonista e clarinettista pugliese, è da alcuni anni uno dei musicisti più interessanti della penisola, messosi in luce per il singolare tipo di ricerca a cavallo tra improvvisazione e scrittura non convenzionale portata avanti dalla sua principale formazione, Bestiario. Lo abbiamo intervistato in occasione dell'uscita del terzo lavoro del gruppo, Quaderni di ...

Felice Clemente: Solo

Read "Solo" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Felice Clemente affronta il lavoro in solitudine, prova impegnativa per qualunque strumentista, ma certo particolarmente ardua per chi si misura con le ance. Lo fa alternando due sassofoni, il tenore e il soprano, e il clarinetto, registrando in un ambiente suggestivo e dalle sonorità particolari qual è una chiesa--quella di Montecalvo Versiggia, nel pavese--e affrontando un ...

Michel Godard, Francesco D'Auria: Amor Sospeso

Read "Amor Sospeso" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Lavoro molto personale e altamente suggestivo, questo CD vede all'opera il duo di Michel Godard e Francesco D'Auria, impegnati su un repertorio di musiche prevalentemente originali (su dodici tracce, sette sono i brani del francese, tre quelli dell'italiano) e sostanzialmente inclassificabili, come spesso accade alla musica del musicista francese, per il loro equilibrio tra musica antica ...

Megalitico 4tet: Endless

Read "Endless" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Quartetto internazionale dalle belle individualità, messo in piedi dal multistrumentista sardo Gavino Murgia, Megalitico ha una strumentazione abbastanza particolare, che vede accanto ai fiati del leader la fisarmonica di Luciano Biondini, la tuba (o il basso elettrico) di Michel Godard, oltre alla batteria di Patrice Heral. Ciò conferisce alla formazione un suono peculiare, che lo inserisce ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
