Mattias Stahl : gli album che sto ascoltando

Read "Mattias Stahl : gli album che sto ascoltando" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Zoh Amba: Bhakti

Read "Bhakti" reviewed by Mark Corroto

It may be an overused metaphor, but saxophonist Zoh Amba does indeed stand on the shoulders of giants. Proof of that phrase is Bhakti, a tour de force of passionate free jazz.

Jeff Lederer's Sunwatcher: Eightfold Path

Read "Eightfold Path" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Knowingly or unknowingly, we are all on the Dharma path. It doesn't matter if you are a Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Muslim, Jain, or Satanist.

Unconventional Instruments

Read "Unconventional Instruments" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

ECM regularly tops lists of the best jazz labels though their full name--Edition of Contemporary Music--would argue for a broader scope of content. A substantial number of their most popular albums, such as Carla Bley's Escalator Over The Hill (1974), Egberto Gismonti: Dança Dos Escravos (1989), Nils Petter Molvær's Khmer (1997), and many more, are not ...
