“Il Sognatoio”, the work composed by Ludovico Peroni, will be published in September for the Da Vinci label. Peroni is the artist and conductor of the Quick Response Orchestra and he gave us a preview of the genesis of the project.
It’s titled “Lontano” (Italian for “far”) and it’s the first solo album by Nick Garbett, an Australian trumpeter well known as the soloist of the Vampires. On this record he is accompanied by Peter Farrar on sax, Daniel Pliner on piano, Jonatha Zwartz on double bass and James Waples on drums. We interviewed him.
Elliot Galvin’s new album constitutes one of the greatest challenges for an artist: a totally improvised performance that highlights, in addition to technical mastery, also the lucid creativity of the English pianist.
Saxophonist Zhenya Strigalev and drummer Jamie Murray are JZ Replacement, a project that draws on a large number of different genres and styles to create a vital and energetic music, a real sonic slap.
Damian Erskine is a bass player well known for his ability to fit into almost any musical situation, extraordinary reading skills and his ability to improvise; he is an educator and a columnist as well. We interviewed him.
After “Finding My Way Home” and “La Saboteuse”, trumpeter and flugelhorn player Yazz Ahmed returns with “Polyhymnia”, a collection of 6 original songs composed and arranged by the British-Bahraini artist who involved 25 musicians for the recordings.
A solo album is probably the most demanding test for a musician, but also the one that gives the greatest freedom to express personal creativity. We interviewed the Welsh pianist and composer Gwilym Simcock who, with “Near and now”, releases his second solo piano album for ACT music.
