Nordic Connect: Spirals

Read "Spirals" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Flurry, l'album d'esordio, ci aveva ammaliato perché la lezione dell'ultimo grande quintetto di Miles Davis sembrava rivivere e assumere nuove sembianze grazie ad una sensibilità tutta femminile e ad una rilassatezza tipicamente nordica. Nordic Connect, per l'appunto il nome dell'ensemble, perché nelle vene di ciascuno dei membri del quintetto scorre per lo meno un briciolo di ...

Nordic Connect? Yes. We have the band's Spirals, their second CD (Artist Share 0097), a jazz-rock present day program with some tuneful originals penned by the various band members.

Spirals manifest themselves across art, nature and life in varied ways. The geometric spiral image might even be seen three-dimensionally, with infinite depth or point-of-view added or perhaps spinning in perpetual motion. There's movement and implied energy in the curling image. Engendering reflection, a spiral goes from and to somewhere. Like its namesake, ...

David's Angels: Substar

Read "Substar" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni

David's Angels is the debut release of a Swedish outfit featuring young singer/songwriter Sofie Norling and composer/pianist Maggi Olin. It is a beautiful eight song-cycle focused on troubled relationship--belonging, sorrow and letting go--that travels into a deeply emotional and sonic journey.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
