ITACA: Vortex

Read "Vortex" reviewed by Neri Pollastri


Il quartetto ITACA, protagonista di questa diciassettesima uscita di nusica.org, deve il proprio nome all'incontro dei due paesi d'origine dei suoi componenti. La sua denominazione è infatti l'acronimo di Italia --da cui provengono Nicola Fazzini e Alessandro Fedrigo, le due anime di nusica.org -e Canada--paese degli altri due musicisti, il clarinettista Francois Houle e il batterista ...

Andy Fusco: Vortex

Read "Vortex" reviewed by David A. Orthmann


Vortex, Andy Fusco's fourth release on the SteepleChase imprint in as many years, is cause for celebration. Until recently, recordings by the veteran alto saxophonist as a leader have been few and far between.

In this they have a lot in common with Steve Reich's Musicians (in the new-music world) and fellow Swiss Nik Bärtsch's Ronin (in the jazz world). Sonar has always sounded like a ...

Wayne Escoffery: Vortex

Read "Vortex" reviewed by Luigi Sforza


Non vi sono dubbi sulla natura di quest'ultima fatica discografica del tenor sassofonista Wayne Escoffery (londinese di nascita e newyorkese di adozione): si tratta di un progetto che declina senza remore alcuni paradigmi sonori intrinseci alla musicalità di John Coltrane.
