Read "Heaven Steps to Seven" reviewed by Maurizio Zerbo

Come il titolo sottointende questo è il settimo CD delNew York Standards Quartet, in cui è entrato a far parte l'eccellente contrabbassista Ugonna Okegwo. La rivisitazione degli standard jazzistici qui proposta raggiunge buoni livelli, ma non tali da far gridare al miracolo. Il procedimento della destrutturazione degli evergreen è oggi ampiamente noto e ben documentato dalla ...

New York Standards Quartet: Unstandard

Read "Unstandard" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Unstandard è il secondo album del New York Standards Quartet, fondato dal sassofonista Tim Armacost nell'autunno del 2006.

Sì, e non ci stuferemo mai di ascoltarli. D'altronde è questo uno dei lati ...


New York Standards Quartet: Unstandard

Read "Unstandard" reviewed by Larry Taylor

It's a pleasure when a group of great jazz players take American standards and reshape them with their own unique stamp. This happens on New York Standards Quartet's Unstandard, where the musical gambit--the direction these musicians take the originals--is often surprising. Pianist David Berkman leads the way, handling arrangements and contributing originals, all the ...

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.
