Read "Dibrujo, Dibrujo, Dibrujo..." reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff


La componente latineggiante di tanta nuova musica newyorkese sembra essere una delle possibili chiavi di lettura di questo ottimo CD, suonato da una superformazione che, da Taylor Ho Binum a Michael Attias passando per Matt Bauder, comprende alcuni tra i nomi migliori della più stretta attualità jazzistica. Come nel precedente CD Garabatos Volume One (Cuneiform 2009), ...

Positive Catastrophe: Dibrujo, Dibrujo, Dibrujo...

Read "Dibrujo, Dibrujo, Dibrujo..." reviewed by Glenn Astarita


Creative juices must have been bouncing off the studio walls during the recording process of this band's sophomore album. The ten-piece unit includes several progressive-jazz notables, such as cornetist Taylor Ho Bynum and saxophonists Matt Bauder and Michael Attias. The perspicacious group-centric focus enlivens a wild Latin Jazz jamboree, where rules are most certainly meant to ...

Positive Catastrophe: Garabatos Volume One

Read "Garabatos Volume One" reviewed by Raul d'Gama Rose


There has always been a strong case to tear down the walls that divide music in the past two hundred years--especially in the 21st century. The best case for this phenomenon has always come from forward-thinking musicians themselves. One of the best examples of this comes in the form of Positive Catastrophe, a little big band ...

Positive Catastrophe: Garabatos Volume One

Read "Garabatos Volume One" reviewed by Jerry D'Souza

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!
