Scott DuBois: Summer Water

Read "Summer Water" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


The third album in guitarist Scott DuBois' survey of the seasons is a story of both inverse relationships and connected themes. Composed in a frigid Chicago winter, the album speaks of summer's warmth; shaped by symphonic inspirations and aspirations, the music surprisingly cuts the other way in featuring solo guitar without overdubs; and bent on creating ...

Miles Davis' Rubberband, Kuba Wiecek Trio & KaMaSz

Read "Miles Davis' Rubberband, Kuba Wiecek Trio & KaMaSz" reviewed by Maurice Hogue


Two rather contrasting recordings highlight this episode: Dan Weiss with his trio augmented by a second bassist and Rubberband, the once-shelved and now revived release from Miles Davis which was recorded after he had left Columbia. On Weiss' album, he displays the chops (often with heavy rock influences) that make him such a high-in-demand player, while ...

Il Meglio del 2018 Secondo Neri Pollastri

Read "Il Meglio del 2018 Secondo Neri Pollastri" reviewed by Neri Pollastri


Anche quest'anno, faticosamente e responsabilmente, ho selezionato tra i miei numerosi ascolti dodici dischi e dieci concerti che potessero essere considerati se non “i migliori," quantomeno “tra i migliori." La selezione è fatalmente influenzata non solo dalle mie predilezioni (non si può ascoltar tutto e fatalmente ci si concentra su ciò che per qualche ragione ci ...
