How does our fascination with technology intersect with the religious imagination? In TechGnosis—a cult classic now updated and reissued with a new afterword—Erik Davis argues that while the realms of the digital and the spiritual may seem worlds apart, esoteric and religious impulses have in fact always permeated (and sometimes inspired) technological communication.

In the thirteen years since the SFJAZZ Collective first came together in February 2004, this revolving door octet (septet, in 2009) of "cream of the crop" US-based jazz musicians has, most years, followed a consistent modus operandi: select a well-known jazz (and, in two cases, beyond jazz) musician and pay tribute through innovative arrangements of his/her music, alongside a set of new original compositions—in almost every case, one each contributed by every member of the Collective.

Tenor saxophonist and clarinetist Matt Bauder is one of those young musicains who has an equal capacity to play in and out of the formal idiomatic conventions. When with Memorize the Sky he goes out, profiting from his studies with the innovative composers Anthony Braxton, Alvin Lucier and Ron Kuivila. Conversely, his band Day in Pictures (now reformed by replacing Angelica Sanchez for Kris Davis) operates completely in jazz domains, and does it very much according to the tradition. The truth is that the jazz tradition has defined a space for freedom right from the start, and Bauder is a master of combining that freedom with form.

"Virtuous Circles Of Miles Davis" is the story of a journey through which the music of Miles continues to live in the hearts and minds of these musicians, a "virtuous circle", in fact, within which the Davisian work relives, inspires and it transforms; once again regenerated, it continues to live and excite the present of these artists. More than a tribute to Miles, "Virtuous Circles Of Miles Davis" is a declaration of love towards a precise period of the life of these musicians, a historical and intimate moment in which Miles and his work were both inspirational and witnesses. The fact that in the quintet of Malvisi there is not a trumpet player speaks volumes about the genuine honesty of this artistic affection.

Kathryn Davis - Il luogo sottile
Italian | 2018 | 270 pages | ASIN: B07BWSGSWJ | EPUB | 1,5 MB

«Il luogo sottile», secondo la mitologia celtica, è quello in cui la membrana fra il mondo fisico e quello spirituale si fa più cedevole; in questo romanzo originalissimo e affabulatorio, il luogo sottile è Varennes, piccolo centro attorno a un lago del New England dove si intrecciano le vite e le voci di un coro di personaggi: la giovane Mees, che scopre all’improvviso di avere il potere di restituire la vita a ciò che è morto, le sue amiche sul limitare dell’adolescenza, le anziane (ma tutt’altro che spente) signore della casa di riposo, un impenitente dongiovanni di mezza età, due minacciosi sconosciuti che turbano la quiete della cittadina (e saranno protagonisti di un drammatico finale) – ma anche i cani e i gatti degli abitanti, i castori che popolano il lago, perfino i licheni e i fiori che ne ricoprono le sponde. Un microcosmo brulicante di vita – misteriosa, paradossale, a volte violenta – che Kathryn Davis sa ritrarre con la maestria di una scrittrice già «classica», paragonata a Virginia Woolf, Gabriel García Márquez e a Karen Blixen.

The Classic Prestige Sessions 1951-1956 collects all of the sides recorded by trumpeter Miles Davis and tenor saxophonist Sonny Rollins for Prestige during their time together as young players in New York City. Both musicians were just past their formative years during this period, having broken free from the heavy sway of their bop elders – especially alto saxophonist Charlie Parker, who appears here in several classic cuts originally released on Collector's Items. Both Davis and Rollins were expanding the bop mold and beginning to discover their own sound. Davis had already made his mark with the innovative West Coast jazz masterpiece Birth of the Cool and was further developing his romantic and cerebral minimalism. Similarly, Rollins was quickly becoming the heir to Parker's throne as the most searching and muscular saxophonist on the scene. The dichotomy of their sounds made Davis and Rollins a perfect rub as jazz partners and these recordings helped foreshadow and define such future jazz movements as hard bop, post-bop, and even free jazz. Included here are such stellar and classic tracks as "Dig," "Oleo," "Down," "The Serpent's Tooth," "Airegin," "Doxy," and "Vierd Blues"." Although all of these recordings are available elsewhere on the original albums, Davis and Rollins' relationship was an incredibly fertile one and it is great to have all of it compiled together.
