Avant-Retro or Retro-Avant? Part II

Read "Avant-Retro or Retro-Avant? Part II" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

Nothing to be suprised about... as musicians have a more open mind than critics like to recognize. So here's the second part of this week's show focusing on retro-sounding jazz performed by forward-leaning musicians -a bit like the jazz equivalent of ...

The Four Bags: Waltz

Read "Waltz" reviewed by Luca Casarotti


C'è il rischio di suonare passatisti, didascalici o monocordi, a voler dedicare un disco intero al tempo di walzer. Da questi esiti si tiene lontano il lavoro più recente di The Four Bags, inequivocabilmente intitolato Waltz, che riesce a esplorare con originalità un genere dalla tradizione tanto pregnante.

Read "Offshore" reviewed by Stephen Latessa


It is difficult to determine whether an album cover affects how you feel about the music contained within, or if some cover art is just particularly representative of the musical content. Either way, Russian artist Erik Bulatov's painting Red Horizon perfectly fits the music created by the Four Bags on Offshore. Certainly the whirling whimsy of ...
