Viaggi cosmici, venti solari, chitarre trascendenti e ricordi di John Coltrane. Solar Winds, il nuovo disco di Raoul Björkenheim, Long Song Records, 2020 su #neuguitars #blog

https://longsongrecords.bandcamp.com/album/solar-winds http://raoulbjorkenheim.com/ http://www.longsongrecords.com/ La vita , come la musica, è una cosa curiosa. Fai un incontro, te ne dimentichi. Dopo qualche anno rivedi quella persona e non te ne ricordi. Coincidenze. Casualità. Ma quando i sentieri si incrociano per una terza, quarta, quinta volta….il caso non c’entra, o era premeditato o era destino. Scegliete voi….

Cosmic journeys, solar winds, transcendent guitars and memories of John Coltrane. Solar Winds, Raoul Björkenheim’s new album on Long Song Records, 2020 on #neuguitars #blog

https://longsongrecords.bandcamp.com/album/solar-winds http://raoulbjorkenheim.com/ http://www.longsongrecords.com/ Life, like music, is a curious thing. Have a meeting, you forget it. After a few years you see that person again and you don’t remember. Coincidences. Randomness. But when the paths cross for a third, fourth, fifth time …. chance has nothing to do with it, either it was premeditated or…

Le nuove possibilità di Second Earth, di Jim McAuley e Scot Ray, Long Song Records, 2019 su #neuguitars #blog

https://scotray.bandcamp.com/album/second-earth https://longsongrecords.bandcamp.com/album/second-earth Qualche tempo fa scrissi un post dedicato al mondo di Jim McAuley. In quel post scrivevo come Jim McAuley appartenesse a quella curiosa categoria di musicisti a cui non basta muoversi all’interno delle coordinate note del loro strumento. Tutto vero. Sono anni che seguo questo musicista e ogni volta riesce sempre a stupirmi….

The new possibilities of Second Earth, by Jim McAuley and Scot Ray, Long Song Records, 2019 on #neuguitars #blog

https://scotray.bandcamp.com/album/second-earth https://longsongrecords.bandcamp.com/album/second-earth Some time ago I wrote a post dedicated to the world of Jim McAuley. In that post I wrote how Jim McAuley belonged to that curious category of musicians who do not just move within the known coordinates of their instrument. All true. I have been following this musician for years and every…

#Recensione di Moontower di Craig Green + David King, Long Song Records, 2012 su #neuguitars #blog

Recensione di Moontower di Craig Green + David King, Long Song Records, 2012 https://www.craigjgreen.com/ http://www.longsongrecords.com/discography/moontower/ Una decina di anni fa i King of Convenience fecero uscire un disco di easy listening molto curato (ammiccavano paurosamente verso Simon & Garfunkel) intitolato “Quiet is the new loud”. Questo titolo mi è rimbalzato in mente ascoltando il secondo…

#Review of Craig Green + David King, 2009 Long Song Records on #neuguitars #blog

Review of Craig Green + David King, 2009 Long Song Records https://www.craigjgreen.com/ http://www.longsongrecords.com/discography/craig-green-david-king/ It’s a long time that I am noticing a curious and unusual approach among two worlds among them in appearance incompatible: the “hight cultured” music  of clear academic and contemporary extraction and the avant-garde music that comes from the free jazz, hardcore…

#Recensione di Craig Green + David King, 2009 Long Song Records on #neuguitars #blog

Recensione di Craig Green + David King, 2009 Long Song Records https://www.craigjgreen.com/ http://www.longsongrecords.com/discography/craig-green-david-king/ E’ da diverso tempo che sto notando un curioso e singolare avvicinamento tra due mondi tra loro all’apparenza inconciliabili: la musica “colta” di chiara estrazione accademica e contemporanea e la musica d’avanguardia che proviene dai circuiti free jazz, hardcore e dalla downtown…
