Gianni Lenoci, madrelingua jazz

Read "Gianni Lenoci, madrelingua jazz" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

La sera di lunedì 30 settembre, dopo breve malattia, è scomparso Gianni Lenoci, pianista, compositore, didatta, teorico, intellettuale tra i più originali e prestigiosi del nostro Paese. Non era forse un nome molto conosciuto al grande pubblico, Gianni, vuoi per il rigore artistico che lo portava a non confondere mai l'arte con l'intrattenimento, vuoi per la ...

I viaggi musicali di Gianni Lenoci

Read "I viaggi musicali di Gianni Lenoci" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Artista dalla discografia ricchissima, Gianni Lenoci è un musicista poliedrico, che ama viaggiare avventurosamente in mondi musicali anche molto diversi, con il preciso e doppio intento, come spiega nella sua recente intervista), di apprendere sempre più e di interpretare in modo personale i diversi momenti musicali che le varie collaborazioni gli propongono. Qui ci occuperemo di ...

Poetry and Jazz: A Chronology

Read "Poetry and Jazz: A Chronology" reviewed by Duncan Heining

My intention here is to offer a detailed but inevitably incomplete chronology of poetry and jazz. The focus is solely on the combination of the two art forms in performance, not on poetry about jazz or jazz musicians or poetry inspired by jazz but not performed to music. My definition of 'poetry' is fairly broad and ...

Rova Saxophone Quartet: Steve Lacy’s Saxophone Special Revisited

Read "Steve Lacy’s Saxophone Special Revisited" reviewed by Mark Corroto

If you own a copy of the original Saxophone Special (Emanem, 1975), flip the LP over to view a photocopy of Steve Lacy's original notebook (with spiral binding) score of the compositions “Staples," “Swishes," and “Snaps." This is all music he performed at Wigmore Hall in London in December 1974 in a saxophone quartet that included ...

La discografia completa di Gianni Lenoci

Read "La discografia completa di Gianni Lenoci" reviewed by Donatello Tateo

Gianni Lenoci (Monopoli, 6/6/1963), pianista, compositore, didatta, performer multimediale ed artista visuale, è personalità artistica inquieta e sperimentatrice, come evidenziato dalla ormai pluridecennale corrispondenza empatica con alcuni compagni di avventure (in particolare Steve Potts, Kent Carter, Gianni Mimmo), e dal suo progetto Hocus Pocus, gruppo a geometria variabile dal trio fino alla dimensione orchestrale.

Giorgio Albanese Quintet + Orchestra: Vento di Maestrale

Read "Vento di Maestrale" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Fisarmonicista eclettico dalle molte collaborazioni e compositore coraggioso, Giorgio Albanese presenta qui un lavoro piuttosto originale, con un organico di grande spicco, selezionato -tutti sono usi alla ricerca musicale più ardita -e cangiante -quattro brani sono in quintetto, uno in solo e l'ultimo si avvale di un'orchestra. Le composizioni fondono tradizioni e stilemi diversi, ...

Gianni Lenoci Hocus Pocus 3 with Steve Potts: Bucket of Blood

Read "Bucket of Blood" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Registrata a Bari nel giugno 2009, viene finalmente pubblicata questa pregevole testimonianza della collaborazione fra Gianni Lenoci e Steve Potts, che si dividono equamente la paternità dei brani (tre del pianista, tre del sassofonista, mentre “Bone" è dell'amato Steve Lacy). I primi due brani, di Lenoci, si qualificano come delle ballad attuali, pensose, oblique, con momenti ...

Talkin' Blues with the Groovemaster, Jerry Jemmott

Read "Talkin' Blues with the Groovemaster, Jerry Jemmott" reviewed by Alan Bryson

Jerry Jemmott's groove is the bedrock of guitarist B.B. King's career defining hit, “The Thrill is Gone." He was in the studio with Duane Allman and singer Wilson Pickett recording “Hey Jude," a track that was instrumental in launching the late Allman Brothers Band guitarist's musical career; and they were together again for flautist Herbie Mann's ...

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.
