Whit Dickey/Kirk Knuffke: Drone Dream

Read "Drone Dream" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Di duetti tromba/batteria, dai tempi dei due volumi-capostipiti (peraltro largamente polistrumentali) intitolati Mu e firmati congiuntamente da Don Cherry e Ed Blackwell (era il 1969, giusto mezzo secolo fa), ce ne sono stati svariati, pur entro una formula--un abbinamento--sempre piuttosto esclusiva, alla fin fine alquanto rara.

Whit Dickey/Kirk Knuffke: Drone Dream

Read "Drone Dream" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Ware and Matthew Shipp alumnus Whit Dickey isn't even his first hook up ...

Whit Dickey/Kirk Knuffke: Fierce Silence

Read "Fierce Silence" reviewed by Mark Corroto

The fitness instructor kept yelling, “feel the burn, feel the burn." After an hour of aerobic exercise, that was not a difficult task. A much easier and painless way to experience the same fire is to listen to just one track of Fierce Silence, a collection of improvised duos between drummer Whit Dickey and cornetist Kirk ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
