JazzWorldQuest Showcase 2019: Fer Carranza Jazz(Argentina)-Vivir en la Luz Album: Dos Bepop

Es un álbum de jazz de diversos estilos pasando por el swing, el hard bop, la fusión, la balada y el funk dedicado en oblación y alabanza a Nuestro Señor Jesucristo a la Santísima Virgen María.
Este es mi tercer CD como solista y muestra un acercamiento más ligado el pop, si es que cabe esa descripción al género principal que aborda mi agrupación que es el jazz.
It is a jazz album of diverse styles passing through swing, hard bop, fusion, ballad and funk dedicated in oblation and praise to Our Lord Jesus Christ to the Blessed Virgin Mary. This is my third CD as a soloist and it shows a closer approach to pop, if that description fits the main genre that my band is playing that is jazz.

USA: Corey Christiansen-Proxima(2019)

ProximaWith his collection of recordings over the last decade, guitarist Corey Christiansen reflected heavily on the great vistas of his Utah home, the West, and traditional melodies, while still fully imbuing his music with a modern jazz aesthetic. With that same penchant for exploring 'roots,' Christiansen's 6th Origin release borrows inspiration from the music that influenced him from Africa, through Cuba and into the States. While not an Afro-Cuban album per se, the more specifically explored rhythms & grooves that have always informed his playing, and that of his bandmates here - bassist David Belove, drummer Colin Douglas, and percussionist/co-producer Michael Spiro - add new layers of perspective, dance and feel.

FRANCE/ITALY: Regis Huby, Bruno Chevillon, Michele Rabbia Reminiscence -- Live at Livio Felluga Winery ( Cam Jazz 2018)


8052405143211 - Reminiscence (Live) - CD


"One still hears a lot of special pleading for the violin in jazz, as if – despite the efforts of everyone from Stuff Smith and Joe Venuti to Jean-Luc Ponty, Zbigniew Seifert and Michał Urbaniak – it still isn’t considered quite “proper” for the music, too “European” or “classical”. In reality, the very first “jazz” groups were probably small string ensembles, playing after-hours in spaces down below the big house, maybe in amongst the master’s cherished clarets and ports, accompanied by strange echoes and bangs. So maybe what Régis Huby, Bruno Chevillon and Michele Rabbia have created on Reminiscence, for all its modern means, is a set of music that goes back in form and feeling to the very earliest days of a great music. It takes a certain gift to make electronic effects as warmly immediate and physical as so-called “acoustic” instruments, as more than “effects”, but that is the gift of Huby, Chevillon and Rabbia on Reminiscence, a profoundly involving and often complex set of interlocked sequences recorded at the Livio Felluga Winery in Brazzano di Cormòns, Italy. This is music that doesn’t need scare quotes. Whether it is “jazz”, “post-jazz” or something beyond jazz altogether, ultimately doesn’t matter. What does is its intense and evolving engagement with the musical material and with an audience. In instrumentation and in setting it is just the latest and quite logical stage in a long creative evolution". (Brian Morton)

USA: Anne Mette Iversen- Invincible Nimbus (BJU RECORDS 2019)


"Anne Mette Iversen's Ternion Quartet is a frisky, loosely controlled ensemble with a fierce drive that recalls Charles Mingus' small groups. Iversen and drummer Roland Schneider push the music relentlessly forward while the front line of saxophonist Silke Eberhard and trombonist Geoffroy de Masure carouse boisterously on the top.
