Michel Wintsch, Christian Weber, Christian Wolfarth: Thieves Left That Behind

Read "Thieves Left That Behind" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Arriva al quarto album, questo trio svizzero dedito alla musica improvvisata, il primo per l'etichetta Veto dopo passaggi su Leo, Monotype e Hatology. Stavolta la formazione vede il pianista Michel Wintsch impegnato solo su strumenti elettrici -sintetizzatore e piano elettrico -cosa che porta il trio in una direzione atipica e tutta da esplorare. Nella ...

Marco von Orelli 5: Alluring Prospect

Read "Alluring Prospect" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Teniamo d'occhio da un po' di anni lo svizzero (di Basilea, per l'esattezza) Marco von Orelli, e dobbiamo dire che ogni volta che incrociamo qualche sua nuova incisione (di ascoltarlo dalle nostre parti, malgrado la sostanziale vicinanza, non se ne parla) la conferma del suo talento è pronta e convincente. Quest'ultimo lavoro in ...

Solitudini pianistiche in casa Hat

Michel Wintsch - Christian Weber - Christian Wolfarth: Willisau

Read "Willisau" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Willisau follows up the Swiss trio's The Holistic Worlds Of (Monotype, 2012) and once again the artists are seemingly intent on routing one's imagination through multiple locations, while not embarking upon a utilitarian approach to the core jazz or avant- jazz piano trio concepts. In fact, the band proffers an antidote to the norm, which can ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
