Read "Ezz​-​thetics & The Stratus Seekers revisited" reviewed by Maurizio Comandini


George Russell è uno dei pilastri sui quali si è costruito il jazz moderno degli ultimi 70 anni. Forse non è uno dei primi nomi che ci vengono in mente, ma di sicuro il suo contributo come compositore, come band leader, come musicologo, è fondamentale.

Pianist Joe Block: At the Start of His Big Bang

Read "Pianist Joe Block: At the Start of His Big Bang" reviewed by Victor L. Schermer
