Tony Williams: Life Time & Spring Revisited

Read "Life Time & Spring Revisited" reviewed by Maurizio Comandini


Tony Williams è uno dei più importanti batteristi della storia. Non solo del jazz, ma della musica in generale. Solitamente questa considerazione, ampiamente condivisa, fa riferimento alla sua lunga esperienza come batterista dei quintetti di Miles Davis della seconda metà degli anni sessanta ed eventualmente al suo ruolo di leader del gruppo Tony Williams Lifetime nato ...

Anthony Williams: Life Time & Spring Revisited

Read "Life Time & Spring Revisited" reviewed by Chris May


Drummer Tony Williams' first two albums as leader, recorded for Blue Note in 1964 and 1965—Life Time when he was only eighteen years old, Spring when he was nineteen—still sound delightfully fresh all these years after their original release. At the time he made them, Williams was a rising star with Miles Davis' second and third ...

In a sixty-year career, interrupted for the guts of a decade by ...

Farnell Newton: Feel The Love

Read "Feel The Love" reviewed by David A. Orthmann


Posi-Tone Records produces coherent projects and maintains high standards in part by keeping things in-house; that is, frequently drawing on a substantial roster of affiliated artists to serve on a particular leader's record. A case in point is Feel The Love, Farnell Newton's third release for the label. While Newton's measured, concise, full-toned trumpet stylings and ...

Hard Bop: Ten Essential Live Albums

Read "Hard Bop: Ten Essential Live Albums" reviewed by Chris May


"Fire! That's what people want. Music is supposed to wash away the dust of everyday life. You're supposed to make them turn around, pat their feet. That's what jazz is about. Play with fire. Play from the heart, not from your brain. You got to know how to make the two meet." So ...
