Febian Reza Pane - Piano de Bossa (2009)



Delicioso disco del poco conocido pianista de jazz japonés de origen indonesio Febian Reza Pane (Tokyo, Japón, 1961), en el que reinterpreta con asombrosa sencillez y delicadeza algunos de los grandes standards de la bossa nova (y un par de standards de jazz) consiguiendo transmitir toda la serenidad, la sofisticación, la aparente ingenuidad y la nostalgia tan característicos de ese estilo musical.

The Joe Gilman Trio - View So Tender: Wonder Revisited Volume 1 (2006)


Source: Joe Gilman

After the Brubeck sessions in 2003, Joe, Justin and I wanted to continue the idea of new takes on great music. Many composers came to mind, but Stevie Wonder's music was a natural choice. Beautiful melodies, adaptable harmony, flexible forms, longevity, and dozens of classics from which to choose.

We set out searching, listening, talking, writing, playing, laughing, and discovering in the Winter of 2004. We listened to almost a dozen hours of Stevie tunes. Many different approaches were discussed, including generating arrangements from rhythmic phrases, collective improvisations, reversing roles of the instruments, and many other concepts we learned from the Brubeck sessions. Finally on June 10 and 11, 2004, we sat down for 13 hours and recorded 28 tunes, some of which you hear on this CD.

Who wouldn't want to pay tribute to Stevie Wonder? And we realized there are many Stevie tribute CDs out there. But this isn't so much a tribute album. It was never conceived that way. It is almost more like a string quartet that records all of the Beethoven repertoire. It is more of a dialog between the two genres of jazz and R&B. Between a genius of modern music and three humble students. Delving deep into a catalog and finding ways to reassemble the music into vehicles for improvisation. Only a few of the things that are so great about the possibilities of the artform we respectfully call jazz.

Doctor 3 - Doctor 3 (2014)



Nel 2014 Danilo Rea, Enzo Pietropaoli e Fabrizio Sferra, decidono di ritrovarsi per riprendere insieme il viaggio interrotto, con nuove idee, nuovo entusiasmo, unendo il patrimonio di crescita individuale degli anni trascorsi in lontananza.

Esce quindi, a giugno 2014 il nuovo cd dal titolo Doctor 3 (Parco della Musica Records, in associazione con Jando Music), seguito da un tour in tutta Italia. Questo nuovo lavoro discografico si colloca in una posizione innovativa rispetto ai precedenti, senza le imprevedibili scorribande musicali da un brano all’altro (anche se questo procedimento creativo non potrà inevitabilmente mancare nelle perfomance live) ma con quella apertura a tutti i generi e i repertori che rappresenta la cifra stilistica del gruppo da quasi vent’anni.
Tra i 12 brani scelti per il cd, c’è una netta prevalenza di derivazione anni ’60 e ’70: David Bowie, The Doors, Bee Gees, Beatles,Henry Mancini, Carole King, Leonard Cohen, e incursioni nelle origini del jazz con standard di Irving Berlin. Il viaggio musicale di Doctor 3 continua e le storie da raccontare sono ancora molte. 

Danilo Rea riesce ad attirare l’attenzione degli ascoltatori soprattutto grazie alla grande versatilità e all’apertura musicale. Dopo gli studi di pianoforte classico al Conservatorio di Santa Cecilia a Roma e l’esperienza come musicista nel mondo del progressive rock, Danilo debutta nel mondo del jazz con il “Trio di Roma” nel 1975, raggiungendo la notorietà internazionale. La sua musica è ricca di sorprendenti momenti di improvvisazione di grande lirismo che trae la propria ispirazione dalla musica classica, dal pop italiano e dal “Great American Songbook”. Non sorprende quindi che in Italia sia considerato come il grande poeta tra i musicisti di jazz e che sia diventato famoso suonando con molti cantautori e cantanti italiani tra cui Mina, Claudio Baglioni e Gino Paoli, oltre che con alcuni tra i più grandi jazzisti statunitensi come Chet Baker, Lee Konitz, John Scofield, Joe Lovano.


Enzo Pietropaoli ha suonato e inciso al fianco di molti musicisti significativi come Franco Ambrosetti, Chet Baker, Flavio Boltro, Lester Bowie, Art Farmer, Paolo Fresu, Enrico Rava, Woody Shaw, Kenny Wheeler, Bob Berg, Michael Brecker, Ronnie Cuber, Maurizio Giammarco, Rosario Giuliani, Johnny Griffin, Steve Grossman, Lee Konitz, Gabriele Mirabassi, Sal Nistico, Archie Shepp, Pietro Tonolo, Gianluigi Trovesi, Massimo Urbani, Phil Woods, Mark Turner, Curtis Fuller, Jimmy Knepper, Albert Mangelsdorff, Dino Piana, Toots Thielemans, Gianni Coscia, Richard Galliano, Brian Auger, Stefano Bollani, Ray Bryant, George Gruntz, Evan Lurie, Rita Marcotulli, Horace Parlan, Enrico Pieranunzi, Danilo Rea, Ben Sidran, Cedar Walton, John Taylor. Bobby Hutcherson, Jay Clayton, Maria Pia De Vito, Norma Winstone, John Abercrombie, Roberto Ciotti, Christian Escoudè, Pat Metheny, Joe Pass, John Scofield, Ginger Baker, Han Bennink, Kenny Clarke, Billy Cobham, Roberto Gatto, Daniel Humair, Alvin Queen, Fabrizio Sferra, Gianmaria Testa e molti altri.

Fabrizio Sferra inizia l’attività di batterista di jazz sul finire degli anni ’70 e si afferma sulla scena nazionale collaborando con prestigiosi musicisti italiani e stranieri fra i quali  Enrico Pieranunzi, Massimo Urbani, Antonello Salis, Maurizio Giammarco, Pietro Tonolo, Rita Marcotulli, Stefano Battaglia, Chet Baker, Lee Konitz, Mal Waldron, Kenny Wheeler, Toots Thielemans, Paul Bley. Significativa l’esperienza con lo “Space Jazz Trio” con il pianista Enrico Pieranunzi ed il contrabbassista Enzo Pietropaoli che si aggiudica nell’ ‘88 e nell’ ‘89, i referendum di ”Musica Jazz“ come miglior disco e migliore formazione dell’anno. A distanza di dieci anni, nel ’98 e nel ’99, e poi ancora nel 2001 e nel 2003, gli stessi referendum vanno al ” Doctor 3 “. Fra i suoi progetti principali, oltre al “Fabrizio Sferra Trio” con Giovanni Guidi e Francesco Ponticelli, il Quintetto di Enrico Rava,  il trio Cisi - Di Castri -  Sferra, il quartetto di Maurizio Giammarco e Phil Markowitz con Piero Leveratto al contrabbasso, due trii chitarristici, uno con Fabio Zeppetella e Dario Deidda, l’altro con Bebo Ferra e Rosario Bonaccorso.
