Cette année là, notre compteur affiche un nombre vertigineux d'heures passées à nous laisser bercer par le bourdonnement du didgeridoo de Stephen Kent. Si certains morceaux comme impro évoquent inévitablement le carnet de route de Romano, Sclavis et Texier, la nature même de la section rythmique (percussions, didgeridoo) permet à l'ensemble de s'en émanciper. Michel Portal retrouve ici un vieux complice: Mino Cinelu (turbulence, men's land).
This intriguing set features percussionist Mino Cinelu with Kevin Eubanks (on acoustic guitar) and bassist Dave Holland. They perform four Eubanks songs, three by Holland, and two from Cinelu, music that ranges from exotic sounds to light and creative funk grooves. It is quite intriguing hearing Eubanks sticking exclusively to his acoustic guitar and Cinelu adds plenty of catchy yet unpredictable rhythms. However, Holland often takes solo honors and he usually holds the group together with his authoritative and flexible sound. Very interesting music that's worth listening to closely several times.
This album is quite unique and it deserves your attention even if unfortunatly it is out of print actually. Well, if you find it used, you can buy it with confidence. It has been recorded in 1995 and it's not a common Jazz album with piano, double bass and drums. Here you have the fantastic Kenny Barron at the piano obviously, but he plays keyboards and double bass too and the incredible Mino Cinelu who plays a lot of different instruments (mandolin, banjo, guitar, keys, drums, percussions, additional sounds effects ... and he sings too in a couple of tune). It is a collaboration of these two artists exclusively. The result is a very strange album, very entertaining and incredibly well played and written.
Eubanks, Cinelu, and the sublime Dave Holland achieve Vulcan mind-meld status as an ensemble on this spirited, swinging collection of acoustic guitar, bass, and percussion grooves. If you're a fan of albums like Tim Sparks' luminous "Tanz" on the Tzaddik label, you must get this. If you're a Holland enthusiast, you will supremely dig Holland's super-muscular virtuosity here. If you know nothing about Eubanks other than his "Tonight Show" gig (I mean, whatever), prepare to be astounded by his fine taste, depth, and fluid imagination. This is a superb record! * amazon.
French-Italian accordionist Richard Galliano began recording for the Milan label in the mid-2000s, since when he's released two tango-based albums, Luz Negra (Milan, 2007) and Live In Marciac (Milan, 2007), made with his Tangaria Quartet. Galliano's Love Day: Los Angeles Session finds him returning to another love, new musette, a jazz-inflected recalibration of the bal-musette cafe music developed by French and Italian musicians in late 19th century Paris. Love Day: Los Angeles Sessions is bal-musette with a further twist though. Throughout his substantial discography, Galliano has recorded, in the main, with European musicians. On Love Day he's chosen a line-up of American or American-based musicians—pianist Gonzalo Rubalcaba, bassist Charlie Haden and drummer Mino Cinelu. None of these players have any sort of history in musette, new or traditional (including French-born Cinelu)…
Reissue. Comes with new liner notes. 2014 latest DSD remastering. Well, it's not the Plugged Nickel or electric Japan in the 70s – but this is a surprisingly great 2LP set of live work by Miles from the early 80s – recorded in New York and Boston, with a lively full-on concert sort of feel! The group features Marcus Miller on bass, Bill Evans on soprano sax, Al Foster on drums, Mike Stern on guitar, and Mino Cinelu on percussion – and the tracks are long tunes, done with a bit of electricity, and sort of a joyous approach overall. Titles include "Kix", "My Man's Gone Now", "Jean Pierre", "Fast Track", and "Back Seat Betty".
Originally released in 1976, the album finally has found an audience and has been reissued by Staubgold. Patrick Vian is the son of French jazz musician Boris Vian. He was also a member of the underground rock band Red Noise, who made one album that is quite well known among prog and psych collectors. Bruits Et Temps Analogues is actually quite an interesting album that has probably been taken for granted over the years. Vian has assembled a high caliber instrumental quartet that includes noted percussionist Mino Cinelu. Vian plays a variety of analog synths - Moogs and ARPs. George Granier is the second keyboardist and Ame Son's Bernard Lavialle plays guitar…
Davis's second recording since ending his six-year retirement was one of his best of the 1980s. Unlike his bands from the 1970s, this particular unit leaves plenty of space and plays much more melodically. Guitarist Mike Stern lets loose some fury, but electric bassist Marcus Miller is not reluctant to walk now and then in a straight-ahead fashion, drummer Al Foster and percussionist Mino Cinelu are tasteful, and Bill Evans gets in a few good spots on soprano. As for Davis, he was gradually regaining his earlier form. This double LP is highlighted by "Back Seat Betty," a side-long investigation of "My Man's Gone Now" and two versions of Davis's childlike "Jean Pierre."Scott Yanow
