Barry Altschul: The 3Dom Factor: Live in Krakow
Tutta l'energia del concerto nell'ottimo Alchemia Club di Cracovia (siamo a dicembre del 2016). Garantisce il batterista Barry Altschul, nome imprescindibile del jazz contemporaneo (lo ricordiamo con Paul Bley o con Anthony Braxton), alla guida del trio 3Dom Factor, con Joe Fonda al contrabbasso e un fantasticamente irrequieto Jon Irabagon a tenore e sopranino.

Repertorio solido e consolidato, sia nei temi originali di Altschul, già presenti nel primo disco del trio, che nella turgida rilettura della monkiana "Ask Me Now"; solidità e flessibilità che vanno a braccetto, con Irabagon che dà sfogo a tutta la sua obliqua fantasia, il disco conferma quanto la vitalità di un artista e la sua esperienza (in questo il batterista ha pochi rivali) riescano a attivare percorsi espressivi sempre significativi anche all'interno di una pratica dai contorni ormai ben definiti.

Notevole il rapsodiare tra contrabbasso e sopranino in "Irina."

CD viscerale e ispirato.

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!
