Sirone

A renowned double bassist of exceptional talent Sirone, (Norris Sirone Jones) was a founder member of the Revolutionary Ensemble and remained with it throughout its six-year life. His memory is principally cherished by observers of the fine detail of jazz history, but his power, flexibility and musicality as an improviser entitle him to much more than a footnote. Back in 1971, three adventurous young US jazz musicians formed an uncompromising improvisational group called the Revolutionary Ensemble--a title that had resonances in the civil rights movement, the Vietnam War, and the radical transformation of jazz making that had been ignited by Ornette Coleman, Cecil Taylor and John Coltrane.

Arancio, nero e nostalgia: tempo di ristampe in casa Impulse!

Read "Arancio, nero e nostalgia: tempo di ristampe in casa Impulse!" reviewed by Luca Canini

Piovono ristampe in casa Impulse!. Un diluvio benedetto a tinte arancionere che riporta sugli scaffali dei negozi classicissimi e rarità a prezzi stracciati. Non il massimo l'operazione dal punto di vista filologico: grafica discutibile, copertine originali incrociate grossolanamente, rimasterizzazione discreta ma non eccelsa, note riprodotte in miniatura e in alcuni casi praticamente illeggibili; ma il rapporto ...

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
