Dear All About Jazz Readers,

If you're familiar with All About Jazz, you know that we've dedicated over two decades to supporting jazz as an art form, and more importantly, the creative musicians who make it. Our enduring commitment has made All About Jazz one of the most culturally important websites of its kind in the world reaching hundreds of thousands of readers every month. However, to expand our offerings and develop new means to foster jazz discovery we need your help.

You can become a sustaining member for a modest $20 and in return, we'll immediately hide those pesky Google ads PLUS deliver exclusive content and provide access to future articles for a full year! This combination will not only improve your AAJ experience, it will allow us to continue to rigorously build on the great work we first started in 1995. Read on to view our project ideas...

Terri Lyne Carrington: The Mosaic Project

AAJ Italy Staff By

Sign in to view read count
La batterista Terry Lyne Carrington mette assieme un bel manipolo di musiciste per questo The Mosaic Project e con loro si avventura in riletture di brani celebri alternate ad esposizioni di nuove composizioni scritte da lei o dalle sue compagne di viaggio.

La musica si ciba del linguaggio jazzistico ma spesso scivola verso un easy listening ben confezionato ma non particolarmente memorabile. Gli assoli sono eleganti e convincenti ma spesso annegano nel contesto poco vigoroso. Non si capisce bene da che parte soffi il vento dell'ispirazione. Quel che resta è un bel catalogo che mette in vetrina le meraviglie della casa, ma poco più.

Potendo contare su Geri Allen, Cassandra Wilson, Esperanza Spalding, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Ingrid Jensen, Patrice Rushen e tante altre era lecito attendersi più coraggio e meno melassa. Ma forse è la nostra visione maschile (più che maschilista) a non cogliere le prelibatezze raffinate che non riusciamo a scorgere. Andremo dal medico e ci faremo dare una bella cura.
