McCandless, Taylor, Balducci, Rabbia: Evansiana

Read "Evansiana" reviewed by Neri Pollastri


Questo disco nasce nel 2014, pensato per dare seguito al precedente lavoro del quartetto messo assieme da Pierluigi Balducci, Blue for Heaven, ma la scelta del contenuto (e quindi del titolo) è dovuta da un lato -come scrive Balducci nelle note -al fatto che i «quattro musicisti forse non vedevano l'ora di poter suonare Bill Evans», ...

Traveling the world from South Africa to Svalbard, a harsh truth is revealed: despite challenges facing recorded music--and, paradoxically, the sheer volume being released--an increasing number of musicians deserving broader recognition are unable to transcend their native countries. Hiring internationally renowned players might seem a good tactic, but the result too often reflects exactly what it ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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!
