Akusmi: Fleeting Future

Read "Fleeting Future" reviewed by Chris May


Anyone who enjoys the landmark albums that are Terry Riley's minimalist manifesto In C (Columbia, 1968) and Jon Hassell's fourth world masterpiece Dream Theory In Malaya (EG, 1981) is in for a big treat.

Read "Meeco: Keeping It Real" reviewed by Chris May


The Berlin-based producer and composer Meeco has a niche but devoted following, built up over a series of romantically inclined and elegant albums released between 2009 and 2014.

George Russell: Ezz​-​thetics & The Stratus Seekers revisited

Read "Ezz​-​thetics & The Stratus Seekers revisited" reviewed by Maurizio Comandini


George Russell è uno dei pilastri sui quali si è costruito il jazz moderno degli ultimi 70 anni. Forse non è uno dei primi nomi che ci vengono in mente, ma di sicuro il suo contributo come compositore, come band leader, come musicologo, è fondamentale. Nei primi anni sessanta i suoi album fornirono una interessante variante ...

From George Coleman to Meeco: Ten Overlooked Classics

Read "From George Coleman to Meeco: Ten Overlooked Classics" reviewed by Chris May


The only thread running through this installment of Building A Jazz Library is that of unsung quality. No particular artist is spotlighted, nor any particular genre. There are simply ten, randomly selected albums, recorded in the US and Europe between 1953 and 2021, which show jazz off at its finest, but which, for one reason or ...

Read "Where Fortune Smiles" reviewed by Maurizio Comandini


L'invito che Tony Williams fece a John McLaughlin, chiamandolo a New York per far partire l'intensa avventura musicale denominata 'Tony Williams Lifetime,' arrivò proprio quando lo stesso McLaughlin aveva magicamente trovato un suo punto di equilibro. Dopo aver lasciato intravedere interessanti bagliori nell'eccellente disco Things We Like di Jack Bruce (registrato a Londra a fine agosto ...
