Robert Bonati Chironomic Orchestra: Whirling Leaves

Read "Whirling Leaves" reviewed by Duncan Heining

Whirling Leaves is a wonderful, intriguing album from Roberto Bonati, one of Europe's most interesting and creative composers. Bonati's previous large ensemble records have all essayed specific themes, from “The Scottish Play" from The Blanket of the Dark, a Study for Lady Macbeth ( MM Records, 2001) to the migratory nature and evolution of medieval music ...

Roberto Bonati: Vesper and Silence

Read "Vesper and Silence" reviewed by John Kelman

Roberto Bonati may not be a name familiar to many jazz fans in North America, but at home in Italy and, increasingly, across Europe he has become a far more familiar face. Beyond inimitable talents as a double bassist, composer and conductor, Bonati has created a name both for himself and the northern Italian city of ...

Roberto Bonati: Nor Sea, nor Land, nor Salty Waves

Read "Nor Sea, nor Land, nor Salty Waves" reviewed by Duncan Heining

Italian composer and bassist is a master of the musical journey.

A Silvery Silence--fragments from Moby Dick (2006) followed the whalers of ...

Roberto Bonati, Diana Torto: Heureux Comme Avec Une Femme

Read "Heureux Comme Avec Une Femme" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Esempio di quanto il jazz, oggi, sia uno spazio ampio, Heureux comme avec une femme vede all'opera Roberto Bonati e Diana Torto, certo due musicisti un po' atipici e lontani da ogni mainstream, ma che sono ben radicati dentro l'universo del jazz. Anche se prodotto dalla sezione jazz di Parmafrontiere, il CD è palesemente più prossimo ...

Roberto Bonati and Diana Torto: Heureux Comme Avec Une Femme

Read "Heureux Comme Avec Une Femme" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

There are few musical things as exciting as a top-class vocalist fronting a full-on big band. Just a few. One of those is a top-class vocalist paired with a single, equally talented, instrumentalist. Heureux Comme Avec Une Femme provides that form of musical excitement courtesy of Italian double bassist and composer Roberto Bonati and vocalist Diana ...

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
