Mark Solborg, Anders Banke, Bjørn Heebøll: Angels

Read "Angels" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro


Cinque temi originali (per lo più di Mark Solborg) più due di Monk, uno in sé e per sé e uno riverniciato (quanto riconoscibilissimo), la titletrack ayleriana e il conclusivo “Harvest Breed" di Nick Drake compongono questo album, che nelle geometrie non può non rimandare allo storico trio di Paul Motian con Joe Lovano e Bill ...

The old adage out of sight, out of mind still applies. Trumpeter and record label director Matthew Halsall's Manchester-based Gondwana operation, and the vibrant spiritual jazz scene which is ...

Sara Gazarek: Thirsty Ghost

Read "Thirsty Ghost" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


Le vocalist emerse dopo il 2010 (Cécile McLorin Salvant, Jazzmeia Horn, Veronica Swift, Cyrille Aimée ecc...) hanno messo un po' in ombra quelle del decennio precedente come Kate McGarry, Gretchen Parlato e appunto Sara Gazarek. È piuttosto buffo che l'interprete californiana (nata a Seattle ma a losangelina dal 2000) continui a essere votata nel critics poll ...

Jose James: No Beginning No End

Read "No Beginning No End" reviewed by Enrique Turpin


Tal vez no sea intención de José James (Mineápolis, 1978) reemplazar a D'Angelo en el reinado del neo-soul que se empezó a fraguar a mediados de los años 90, pero puede que lo logre sin proponérselo.
