Eugenio Colombo, Giancarlo Schiaffini, Luigi Marino: Totem

Presumibilmente perché il disco è stato registrato (il 1° settembre 2013) al Totemtanz di Roma (o è viceversa...?). La seconda: c'era una volta il trio SIC (Schiaffini Iannaccone Colombo), che realizzò ...


Totem: Solar Forge

Totem>: Solar Forge

Read "Solar Forge" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni

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.
