Nicholas Urie: My Garden

Read "My Garden" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Il ventiseienne losangelino Nicholas Urie è senz'altro un tipo da tener d'occhio. Intanto è un compositore puro, specie tutto sommato rara in ambito jazzistico (pur nell'ampia accezione che la sua musica richiede; ma che al centro ci sia il jazz è indiscutibile). Ha studiato con Bob Brookmeyer (come una certa Maria Schneider...) e poi ha iniziato ...

Nicholas Urie made an impressive footprint with the release of his Excerpts From and Online Dating Service (Red Piano Records, 2009). The composer/arranger modus operandi changes little on My Garden, where he takes his texts from the poetry of West Coast writer Charles Bukowski (1920-1994), and weaves them into provocative and often violent tapestries of contemporary ...

On Excerpts, Urie invited the listener to hear ("imagine" might be more fitting) a certain poetry in the ...

Read "My Garden" reviewed by Wilbert Sostre

The combination of poetry and music is not new. Spain and Latin America have a great tradition of poetry musicalization. As part of the Nueva Trova style of the 1970s, singers like Silvio Rodriguez, Mercedes Sosa, Atahaulpa Yupanqui and Roy Brown set the poetry of some of Latin America's best writers to music. Being ...


Nicholas Urie: My Garden

Read "My Garden" reviewed by Mark Corroto

First thoughts of accompanying the poetry of Charles Bukowski to music are predisposed to the techniques of Tom Waits and his post-beatnik circus. Composer/arranger Nicholas Urie takes another path, instead, orchestrating his 12-piece big band towards an alternative rendition and deeper understanding.Like his previous Excerpts From An Online Dating Service (Red Piano, 2009) ,where ...

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.
