The saxophone is possibly the musical instrument that produces a sound closest to the human voice. Listening to a virtuoso saxophonist like Matana Roberts, one hears more than just breath through a reed instrument. Her solo recording Always, travels beyond voice, to mind, body, and spirit.

Genre: Avant-Garde Jazz | Label: Constellation

Matana Roberts is one of the most acclaimed, socio-politically conscious and aesthetically intrepid avant-jazz practitioners of the 21st century. The critical accolades for her multi-chapter Coin Coin work place her at the vanguard of stylistic innovation and radicalization, while confirming the deep substance and soul that guides her compositional agenda. Roberts has long employed the phrase "panoramic sound quilting" to describe Coin Coin, and with this third chapter in the series she implements this metaphor most overtly.

Matana Roberts (pronounced Mah-tah-Na) is a dynamic saxophonist, composer, and improviser whose music exposes the mystical roots and spiritual traditions of African American creative expression. Live In London, the follow-up to her acclaimed debut The Chicago Project, features her UK band including pianist Robert Mitchell, bassist Tom Mason, and drummer Chris Vatalaro of Antibalas. Recorded live at the Vortex Jazz Club in early 2009 by BBC Radio 3, Roberts takes us on an autobiographical tale of her music heritage, peers, and future.

Over the last decade or so Chicago cellist and composer Tomeka Reid has emerged as one of the most original, versatile, and curious musicians in the city’s bustling jazz and improvised music community. Her distinctive melodic sensibility, usually braided to a strong sense of groove, has been featured in many distinguished ensembles over the years. She’s been a key member of ensembles led by legendary reedists like Anthony Braxton and Roscoe Mitchell, as well as a younger generation of visionaries including flutist Nicole Mitchell, singer Dee Alexander, and drummer Mike Reed.

A colorful extreme display of the Israeli director. Matana MiShamayim (gift from heaven) is quite different from Kosashvili's "Late Marriage". The primitive traditional family values (Georgian in this case) are brought here some steps beyond to present a comic macabre reality. Women, for example, are portrayed in the film as objects to be used in the patriarchal chauvinistic society they live in. They are kidnapped, threatened, locked in a closet and often molested in order to channel shame on their husbands (countless knickers are pulled down revealing genitalia in public). On the other hand, they are always the center of attention, encompassing every aspect of desire men have, thus they can control and manipulated men, but only to a certain extent - the head of the family (played by the amazing actor Mony Moshonov). Actors are doing a great job under Kosashvili's direction, and one can find similarities between him and Kusturica. The weakest part of the film is in the script, which fluctuates from brilliance to embarrassment. The bottom line, I warmly recommend.

La Shenandoah Valley, in Virginia, al riparo delle Blue Ridge Mountains, è molto distante da Hollywood. Ed è esattamente lì che Cilla McGowan preferisce vivere, lontano da tutto e da tutti. Cilla, un tempo enfant prodige del grande schermo, è ora una restauratrice di case, che cura daL pavimento al soffitto con le sue stesse mani, e si sta dedicando a quella che era la fattoria di sua nonna, ora sull'orlo della rovina. Nessuno però aveva potuto far nulla per sua nonna, la leggendaria Janet Hardy, un'attrice dalla voce strabiliante e la vita irrequieta, capace di ammaliare i più importanti rappresentanti del jet set con il suo fascino…
