Steve Grover: Variations

Read "Variations" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Sessant'anni, nativo del Maine, Steve Grover è qui alla testa del proprio quartetto (voce e piano trio), su cui s'innestano a turno i quattro fiati, generando cinque quintetti (senza la tromba e sempre con un solo sax) e sei sestetti (appunto con la tromba aggiunta a un unico sax alla volta). Il risultato è di una ...

Kevin Hays: Variations

Read "Variations" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

When famed jazz scholar Gunther Schuller first coined the term “Thematic Improvisation," he wasn't introducing a new concept so much as shedding light on how jazz artists had come to use the age-old “Theme And Variations" format in their own sweet way.

Trichotomy: Variations

Read "Variations" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Viene dall'Australia questo interessante trio destinato a fare buone cose nel mondo del jazz. Tutte originali le composizioni interpretate con vivace verve ritmica, oscillando senza soluzione di continuità tra vari poli jazzistici senza mai omologare. Tra vigoroso swing e sirene minimaliste, il percorso pare portare l'improvvisazione jazzistica lungo territori più vasti sino a contenere echi di ...

Read "Variations" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

The band describes itself on its website as a “contemporary music trio," which is “so much more than a traditional jazz trio"--a bold declaration, especially as the ...

As viewed through a jazz prism, what is a variation if not an improvisation written down? A transcription of Coleman Hawkin's famous 1939 recording of “Body and Soul" is no different than Bach's Goldberg Variations or Beethoven's Diabelli Variations. All examples present a theme and then melodic variations over the harmonic structure of the ...
