Gard Nilssen's Supersonic Orchestra: If You Listen Carefully The Music Is Yours

Read "Gard Nilssen's Supersonic Orchestra: If You Listen Carefully The Music Is Yours" reviewed by Chris May

Audacious and experimentalist, like everything the Norwegian drummer and composer touches, Supersonic flouts convention and, in particular, realigns the longstanding relationship between pre-composition and improvisation in orchestral jazz. If You Listen Carefully The Music ...

Ludovico Granvassu's Garden Of Jazzy Delights 2022

Read "Ludovico Granvassu's Garden Of Jazzy Delights 2022" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu


The depth and range of the music that jazz players have put on record in 2022 are so big that summarizing this “year in jazz" by selecting only ten albums feels akin to taking the photo of a breath-taking landscape with an ultra-low resolution camera... Ten years from now, how is one supposed to understand how ...

Flukten: Velkommen Håp

Read "Velkommen Håp" reviewed by Chris May


The first thing that may strike you about Norwegian quartet Flukten's debut album is the sleeve art. This shows a naked man with his back to the camera, limbs spread wide and with something dangling between his legs. It looks like a penis, but smaller. Flukten (in English the name means The Escape ...

Atomic: Pet Variations

Read "Pet Variations" reviewed by John Eyles


Formed in the spring of 2000, Scandinavian “supergroup" Atomic recorded and released their first album Feet Music (Jazzland) in 2001. The years since have been remarkably stable for the quintet; they have produced albums at an impressive rate of about a disc a year, including two collaborations with Ken Vandermark's School Days group. The only change ...

Atomic: Pet Variations

Read "Pet Variations" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero


Sentirli e vederli dal vivo è un'esperienza auspicabile e appagante, il palco è la dimensione ideale per rimandare all'ascoltatore tutta l'energia della loro musica, una miscela esplosiva di free jazz, avanguardia, funky, tradizione europea. Stiamo parlando degli Atomic tra i primi a ribellarsi alle sonorità di un jazz scandinavo marchiato ECM e diventati nel corso degli ...
