Samo Salamon Quartet: Two Hours

Read "Two Hours" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff


Strano album questo dello sloveno Samo Salamon, sicuramente uno dei chitarristi più interessanti delle ultime generazioni. Si apre magnificamente con una bella melodia in dieci, prosegue con un omaggio a Steve Lacy decisamente fuori dagli schemi, e poi incappa in un passo falso, in una melodia piuttosto banale, che chi vi scrive trova, alla luce dei ...

Samo Salamon: Two Hours

Read "Two Hours" reviewed by Budd Kopman


It matters not that this recording took but two hours to record after very little rehearsal. Samo Salamon was ready with his music, and his compatriots, three well-traveled musicians with fast musical reflexes and good instincts, actually thrived when thrown into this situation. It is hard to predict whether better music will be ...

Next time you find yourself underwhelmed by a jazz recording on an indie jazz label, it might be entirely the fault of the artist--some people make bad records, after all. That said, the whole system might be the culprit: small labels offer musicians opportunities to do sessions, but don't (and usually can't) give them what they ...

Samo Salamon Quartet: Two Hours

Read "Two Hours" reviewed by David Miller


Samo Salamon is a master guitarist. His chops go unchallenged; at any moment he could play any note or chord on the instrument. That said, Two Hours is a disappointment. Salamon and his bandmates (Tony Malaby, tenor sax; Mark Helias, bass; Tom Rainey, drums) fall victim to two of the biggest traps in jazz: sub-par songwriting ...

Samo Salamon Quartet: Two Hours

Read "Two Hours" reviewed by John Kelman


Sometimes two hours is enough. Groups like Oregon and the Dave Holland Quintet have shown the value of developing long-term chemistry, but sometimes the energy of the unexpected can be equally motivating. With the one rehearsal for Two Hours sideswiped by an unexpected grab of the New York rehearsal space for a movie shoot, Slovenian guitarist ...

Samo Salamon: Two Hours

Read "Two Hours" reviewed by Chris May


Slovenian guitarist Samo Salamon has generated a good degree of heat over the last couple of years, first with his self-published '03 album Ornethology, then with last year's Ela's Dream. Both discs suggested the emergence of a young guitarist well on the way to finding a distinctive personal voice. The early promise is fulfilled on Two ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
