Nuove composizioni nate per il quartetto, trascrizioni dal repertorio antico (Dowland) e contemporaneo (Cage), un pezzo di Sun Ra e Lonely Woman di Ornette Coleman, l’improvvisazione. È questo il bacino a cui il quartetto attinge per mettere a fuoco Menhir, un lavoro che scavalca con consapevolezza i confini tra i generi musicali ed i periodi artistici.

With ‘BREAKOUT’, Echoes Of Zoo push their adrenaline fueled jazz sounds to thrilling new levels. Rarely did one single word capture an entire musical atmosphere this accurately: the gates of the cages fell open and won’t ever be shut again. ‘BREAKOUT’ celebrates breaking loose and is constantly seeking for unexpected and exciting encounters – both culturally and musically. Infused with an eclectic range of western, oriental and African influences, Echoes Of Zoo let their psychedelic and energetic jazz roam the streets in all freedom – much like an animal that has just stepped out of his cage and looks you straight in the eye. Meeting is direct, barriers are gone, the adrenaline and energy are rushing high.

Modern Iran (technically the Islamic Republic of Iran) is home to one of the world's oldest civilizations. The former Persian Empire was especially noted for its artistic traditions, including Persian classical music, which is still a prominent performance style in 2021. The current government is not known for openness to Western influence, as exemplified by censorship of internet content and the banning or censoring of Western movies in Iran, so the country does not look like it would be receptive to any sort of music with Western influences . But music is like a desert flower, able to find purchase in the most hostile environments; and the artistic impulse among Iranian musicians will not be denied.

Jean-Baptiste Frédéric Isidor, Baron Thielemans (29 April 1922 – 22 August 2016), known professionally as Toots Thielemans, was a Belgian jazz musician. He was mostly known for his harmonica playing, as well as his guitar, whistling skills, and composing. According to jazz historian Ted Gioia, his most important contribution was in "championing the humble harmonica", which Thielemans made into a "legitimate voice in jazz". He eventually became the "preeminent" jazz harmonica player.

Hard Bop, Post-Bop | Label: Verve Records - 314 549 676-2

As difficult as it is to adequately present such a talented, driven, quirky and unique musician, this compilation tries. Drawn from his Mercury and Verve recordings, mostly from the first half of the '60s, this worthy release eschews his later, more experimental work on Atlantic. Whether playing two or three woodwinds simultaneously, wailing on flute or whistle or employing his own stritch or manzello, he sounds like no one else. He gets sympathetic backing throughout, particularly from a wide assortment of pianists who include Herbie Hancock and Horace Parlan. Nine of the 14 tracks are written by the frontman himself, including "Serenade to a Cuckoo," which Jethro Tull covered on its debut. It's easy to see why Ian Anderson was impressed by Kirk's flute work. ~ Roland Kirk's Finest Hour Review by Mark Allan

Mark Guiliana has become recognized as one of the world’s leading drummers, admired for his rhythmic sophistication, creative impulse, and individual sound. Driven by his sonic ingenuity and percussive virtuosity, Guiliana makes a much-anticipated return to electronic music with 'BEAT MUSIC! BEAT MUSIC! BEAT MUSIC!' (out April 12). Playing the drums with computer-like precision, Guiliana eschews loops and programmed beats for the human touch, bringing some of the most talented and innovative minds in music (Jason Lindner, BIG YUKI, Tim Lefebvre) to the BEAT MUSIC collective, brilliantly fusing the synthetic and the organic.

There is nuance in the everyday; in its layers of love, joy, and hurt, and in its emotional currents ever present. Erin Propp and Larry Roy reach into the everyday and blur the edges, creating works that are at once deeply personal and achingly relatable. These are songs that take it all in, that read between the lines, that hear the subtext, that feel it, that say it out loud.

Pat Metheny's nearly 50-year career has always balanced the tension between two developmental poles: refining and expanding the technical and aesthetic reaches of his virtuosic yet lushly romantic "voice" on the guitar, and constructing a sprawling, ever-evolving compositional language that melds harmonic and rhythmic sophistication with approachability, steely honesty, and cinematic drama. Road to the Sun, Metheny's debut offering for BMG's Modern Music imprint, marks the guitarist/composer's first deep dive into composing classical music for the guitar.

Extrapolating this method, Allen enlisted the guitarist Dave Blenkhorn , with whom he had been touring in Europe on the eve of the pandemic, to make a trans-Atlantic recording: Allen in New York City and Blenkhorn in Bordeaux, France (consider the romance of those locales!). This resulted in Under A Blanket Of Blue (GAC Records, 2020). Both projects successfully showed that creativity is adaptable as necessary, and , at its best, brings everything closer together, in spite of temporal circumstances. Allen's most recent projects highlight the good. They also restore that bit of mystery that is still able to make even the most jaded and cynical among listeners.

My musical roots are connected to dance, rhythm and melody. Like the saxophone, the accordion is an instrument that is part of my artistic heritage, a companion that is inseparable from my creative journey. When I rediscovered “Summit”, the album recorded by Astor Piazzolla and Gerry Mulligan in 1974, I laid the foundations of this new project entitled “Mother of Pearl”.
