Ray Anderson Pocket Brass Band: Come In

Read "Come In" reviewed by Vic Albani


Con tutto il rispetto per il quartetto di musicisti titolare di questa incisione, questo disco potrebbe essere velocemente destinato alla casella “bello anche se non fondamentale." Ma c'è una storia da raccontare che forse rende giustizia alla “necessità" di volerlo pubblicare e dargli un valore comunque non indifferente. L'11 marzo 2020 è una data ...
