Read "Ariele Monti: la filosofia inclusiva di Area Sismica" reviewed by Libero Farnè


A Ravaldino in Monte, pochi chilometri a sud di Forlì, in una rustica e isolata casa di campagna ai piedi delle colline romagnole, per la precisione una Casa del Popolo costruita nel 1947, ha sede Area Sismica, uno dei locali più vivaci, autentici e accoglienti in cui ascoltare musica dal vivo con poche preclusioni di genere. ...

The Thing with Joe McPhee: She Knows...

Read "She Knows..." reviewed by Mark Corroto


After nearly three dozen releases over seventeen years, it was announced in 2019 that the trio The Thing would be on a hiatus from touring and recording. This garage punk jazz trio has carried the flame of Black Flag's get-in-the-van philosophy, traveling and recording with the likes of Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore, Otomo Yoshihide, Neneh Cherry, ...

In addition to offering a safe haven and an enthusiastic audience for international jazz players, Japan has a vibrant local scene which features musicians that approach jazz without necessarily being encumbered by its tradition, and infuse it with their own cultural traditions and generally post-modern attitude.

Ché-SHIZU: A Journey

Read "A Journey" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Jeremiah Cymerman: Decay Of The Angel

Read "Decay Of The Angel" reviewed by Mark Corroto


I don't recall the soundtrack to the original Bladerunner, Ridley Scott's 1982 film starring Harrison Ford. The movie, an adaptation of science fiction writer Philip K. Dick's novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, blurs the line between human and android. That same obfuscation (electroacoustic) is at the heart of Jeremiah Cymerman's solo recording Decay of ...

The Thing: Again

Read "Again" reviewed by Mark Corroto


Wait for it. Wait. At some point during a performance or recording by the trio known as The Thing, the band attempts to rip your face off, beginning with your ears. It's been that way since they were founded in 2000. The Swedish/Norwegian free jazz/garage band have become a kind of jazz/punk royalty, cutting huge swaths ...
