Nucleus: Nucleus Live at the BBC

Read "Nucleus Live at the BBC" reviewed by Maurizio Comandini


Dio salvi la regina. E la BBC. L'emittente di stato britannica ha capito fin da subito che da quelle belle energie musicali, che spuntavano come l'erba di Hyde Park sotto al tiepido sole di quelle latitudini, passavano le scelte esistenziali e culturali delle nuove generazioni e sin dagli anni sessanta ha dato ampio spazio alla musica, ...

Neil Ardley: Kaleidoscope Of Rainbows Live '75

Read "Kaleidoscope Of Rainbows Live '75" reviewed by Chris May


One of the more obscure but loftiest masterpieces of British jazz, composer Neil Ardley's long-form suite Kaleidoscope Of Rainbows was released on the tiny Gull Records label in 1976.

Read "Keith Tippett: 100 Best Foots Forward" reviewed by Duncan Heining

Read "John Kelman's Best Releases of 2019" reviewed by John Kelman
