Alexa Tarantino: Winds of Change

Read "Winds of Change" reviewed by Paul Rauch

Sean Moran Small Elephant Band: Tusk

Read "Tusk" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff


Il giovane chitarrista newyorchese Sean Moran riunisce in questo bel lavoro un quintetto dalle sonorità preziose e dall'incedere aconflittuale nel cui agire un ruolo assolutamente centrale gioca la composizione (tutti di Moran i nove pezzi in scaletta), con la definizione di percorsi stilistico-espressivi lucidi e coesi che sembrano rivelare un attento ascolto delle frange più avanzate ...
