Pianoless Trios: Sonny Rollins to Ballister

Read "Pianoless Trios: Sonny Rollins to Ballister" reviewed by David Brown


Sonny Rollins is famous for the pianoless trio. He said the lack of chordal instruments gave him more freedom for soloing. Tonight, a smorgasbord of trios sans pianos. Offering lots of space for soloists and collective interplay. Note: Due to a loose board plug, songs two and three play in mono. The issue was resolved during ...

Rob Mazurek: Desert Encrypts Vol. 1

Read "Desert Encrypts Vol. 1" reviewed by Karl Ackermann


It was twenty-five years ago, in 1994, that Rob Mazurek first emerged with Man Facing East (Hep Jazz), a quartet recording solidly positioned in the post/hard bop style.

Il Meglio del 2018 Secondo Nicola Negri

Read "Il Meglio del 2018 Secondo Nicola Negri" reviewed by Nicola Negri


Per chi non se ne fosse accorto, stiamo vivendo un momento musicale straordinario, fatto di ricerca senza confini, ibridazioni linguistiche e condivisione di esperienze spesso agli antipodi--insomma diametralmente opposto al periodo storico, in cui l'ignoranza miope delle nuove destre vorrebbe tenerci divisi, ancorati ad un'idea identitaria ormai superata dalla storia.
