RAW FRAME - Side Sight (NAU RECORDS 2017)



Side Sight è il secondo album dei Raw Frame. I brani della band, tutti originali, attingono a piene mani dalla lezione del minimalismo e del jazz europeo contemporaneo, alternando temi essenziali e figure ritmiche ripetute a strutture aperte e ampi spazi d’improvvisazione, in cui la chitarra di Bolzoni assume un ruolo preponderante.

Dalle semplici progressioni di Retell al ritmo incalzante di Sunny Cloud, l'originale matrice jazzistica della formazione si nutre sempre più di influenze pop e post-rock, esplora le qualità timbriche di ciascuno strumento e prova ad abbandonare le nicchie di genere. Chiamatelo, se vi pare, avant-garde o avant-jazz: l'importante è che Side Sight tocchi le corde emotive di ascoltatori “spuri”.

Carmelo Coglitore Quartet – Istante Groove (NAU RECORDS 2017)



Unisce l’improvvisazione ai tre elementi che fanno parte dell’asse portante della maggior parte della letteratura musicale classica e contemporanea: la composizione, l’arrangiamento e la direzione d’orchestra. In esso tutti e tre gli aspetti sono totalmente improvvisati dando però la sensazione all’ascoltatore che la musica sia scritta, arrangiata e diretta. 

L’improvvisazione è composizione in tempo reale, e in questa registrazione gli avvenimenti espositivi dell’assolo possono essere assimilabili agli elementi tematici di una composizione.

L’arrangiamento e la direzione sono collegate dalla ‘conduction’, (conduzione improvvisata attraverso un protocollo di segni dati dal conductor), grazie alla quale il viaggio musicale prende strade sempre nuove, dando alla performance una freschezza che genera l’aspetto forse più importante del jazz: la sorpresa.

Federica Gennai + Filippo Cosentino - Come Hell Or High Water (NAU RECORDS 2017)



Is a sonic journey that passes through the repertoire of the two musicians. The Duo, voice and guitar find here new colors, including with the use of electronics. This search, which combines sounds and harmonies, characteristic of the Mediterranean, created by using a variety of colors in guitar Filippo Cosentino (acoustic, electric and baritone) and voice Federica Gennai who becomes an instrument and original interpreter of this Mediterranean tradition, while remaining consistent to the typical characteristics of contemporary European jazz. 

E' un viaggio sonoro all’interno di un repertorio quasi interamente composto dai due musicisti. La formazione, voce e chitarra, è qui alla ricerca di nuovi colori, anche attraverso l’uso dell’elettronica. Una ricerca che unisce le sonorità ed armonie tipiche del mediterraneo, create dai molti colori della chitarra di Filippo Cosentino (acustica, elettrica e baritona), alla voce di Federica Gennai che si fa strumento ed interprete originale di quella tradizione (mediterranea) pur rimanendo coerente ad alcune caratteristiche tipiche del jazz contemporaneo europeo.

Post Image - Fragile (CRISTAL RECORDS 2017)


Débuter la 1ère année de sa création, en 1987,  avec une 1ère partie de Miles Davis, partager les années suivantes la scène avec Tony Williams, Joe Zawinul, Herbie Hancock, John McLaughlin, Magma ou Wayne Shorter, donner des centaines et des centaines de concerts en France et dans de nombreux autres pays, avoir enregistré dix albums, sont autant de moments exceptionnels d’un magnifique parcours qui montre bel et bien la force d’un groupe, celle de Post Image.

Alors pourquoi « Fragile ». Quand on pose la question à Dany Marcombe, un des deux fondateurs,  du choix de ce titre d’album, il répond « tout est fragile dans ce monde… ». Il en sait quelques chose de cette fragilité, grand accidenté de la route, en 1979, qui s’est battu pour continuer à vivre, à jouer grâce au soutien de ses proches et de ses partenaires. Il ajoute « et puis lors de l’enregistrement, on a vécu à la fois la naissance du premier bébé du batteur et la disparition d’un ami… alors oui la vie est fragile dans un sens comme dans l’autre ». Cependant, très rapidement, Dany dit aussi  « on est fragile seul, mais le groupe apporte de la force ».

La fragilité peut donc se transformer en force lorsqu’elle est nourrie par la musique, par le partage, par l’amitié, par les rêves réalisés, et par les rencontres. Et des rencontres, il y en a eu beaucoup. Notamment, celles avec ceux qui sont les invités de ce nouvel album. Tout d’abord, John Greaves, déjà présent dans le précédent album « In an English Garden ». Dany Marcombe l’a beaucoup admiré lorsqu’il écoutait les albums de Robert Wyatt à en user les sillons, il y eut ensuite la rencontre qui s’était faite en toute simplicité et facilité, le même langage musical opérant, pour aboutir à une complicité qui les réunit encore aujourd’hui.

Alain Debiossat, quant à lui, avait participé au 3ème album, à l’époque où Sixun et Post Image creusaient ce même sillon d’une musique à la croisée du jazz, des rythmes du monde et du groove. C’est donc tout naturellement qu’il vient apporter sa contribution à l’occasion de cet anniversaire.

A l’image de la cover du CD, voilà un embryon de plante qui a poussé, grandi, évolué, qui s’est développé pendant 30 ans, porteuse de l’ADN Post Image, de ses cellules bien vivantes et actives.

Peu de groupes français peuvent revendiquer une telle longévité. Post Image peut décidément rentrer dans la catégorie de groupe culte, de ce qu’on appelle, « jazz fusion », une musique à la croisée d’autres musiques, une musique nomade traversée d’influences riches et diverses, et traversant les décennies avec une énergie intacte, avec ce désir constant de partage.

L’émotion, Post Image en a donné, et en retour c’est avec émotion qu’on peut leur souhaiter un bel anniversaire !

Ambrose Akinmusire - A Rift In Decorum Live at the Village Vanguard (BLUE NOTE 2017)



Trumpeter and composer Ambrose Akinmusire has proven himself an artist of rare ability and wide-ranging aesthetic interests on his previous Blue Note albums When the Heart Emerges Glistening (2011) and the imagined savior is far easier to paint (2014). Now with the June 9 release of his expansive new double-album A Rift in Decorum: Live at the Village Vanguard, Akinmusire reaches a new pinnacle as he and his quartet of longtime bandmates – Sam Harris (piano), Harish Raghavan (bass), and Justin Brown (drums) – join a distinguished strata of jazz artists who’ve made live recordings in the hallowed New York City venue.

The pre-order for A Rift in Decorum launched today along with the album’s lead track “Maurice & Michael (sorry I didn't say hello),” which is available now to download or stream. Akinmusire has also announced an extensive touring schedule for 2017 that includes concerts in Washington DC (Library of Congress, May 20), San Francisco (SFJAZZ, June 14-15), Los Angeles (Moss Theater, June 16), Montreal International Jazz Festival (June 29), a European tour throughout the month of July, and a return to the Village Vanguard this Fall (September 19-24). See below for a full list of tour dates.

“Justin and I have talked a lot about the spirits that we can feel in the Vanguard,” Akinmusire marvels. “It’s like I’m being bear-hugged by the spirits in there. Especially in a time like now, it’s great to have a place that still exists in the way that it originally existed.”

About the album title, Akinmusire muses: “A ‘rift’ to me relates to investigating a single moment. I think rifts are what make things beautiful. ‘Decorum’ ties into my feelings about what’s going on these days, musically and in the world. But there’s also something about the red curtains at the Vanguard: somehow in connection with that visual image A Rift in Decorum makes sense to me. Musically, I would add, the title is about celebrating the negatives and the positives, the ugly parts as well as the beautiful parts.”


The album was written and produced by Akinmusire, and finds the quartet exploring 14 of his new original compositions. “I’ve been really into exploring extremes,” he explains. “I take things that are really in your face and things that are so not in your face, and then it’s about rubbing those things together and hinting about a middle, or even questioning what a middle is. That’s what this quartet is about in my mind. So you’ll have a tune where we’re playing a lot of material, and then you’ll have something that’s much more spare, almost Morton Feldmanesque, or like a Chopin Nocturne. I think more and more I’m like this as a person — extremes, polar opposites, the far reaches of both.”

There’s a poignant story behind the opening track, “Maurice and Michael (sorry I didn’t say hello)”: “I wrote it when I was artist-in-residence at the Monterey Jazz Festival. The place where you stay to compose is so beautiful. You’re by yourself overlooking the ocean, and if you look over to the right when it’s clear you can see San Francisco and Oakland. One day it hit me — wow, I have friends that are still over there in the hood who would never even know anything like this exists, so close by. Not long after that, I was on the BART home and I saw someone I grew up with named Maurice, who had a brother named Michael. I hadn’t seen them since high school. Maurice seemed to be on something, his eyes were red, he could barely walk, and I just couldn’t say hello. Here I am in some fancy suit with my expensive headphones and Moscot glasses, and this guy I grew up with looks like he’s homeless. It really affected me. I went through so many thoughts: ‘Do I think that I’m better?’ ‘Who am I to feel ashamed at whatever success I think I have?’”

One could reasonably ask if the band felt pressure that week at the Vanguard, following in the footsteps of such giants. “I don’t feel pressure when I’m playing with my band,” Akinmusire responds. “Maybe it has something to do with me not living in New York, feeling more like a normal person, just a regular guy who plays trumpet. And also the older I get, the more of a spiritual thing it becomes for me. I really believe more than ever that I’m not the one playing, so the pressure is kinda off me. My job is to do all the work necessary to allow the spirit to come through me.”
