Mahanthappa, rising star
Pregled jazz-sezone koji po 57. put nudi američki magazin Down Beat, engleski rečeno 57th Annual Critics Poll, uvijek je dobra prilika za inventuru vlastite jazz kolekcije, za otkrivanje "rupa", ali i potpuno novih imena. U duhu jazza, naglasak Down Beat-ovog pregleda nije na diskografiji, nego na pojedinim instrumentima: živa svirka, iliti sessionography mnogo je bitnija za većinu jazz glazbenika. Ove godine, kao i prije dvije, ponovno je na vrhu Sonny Rollins, koji je proglašen džezerom sezone, a njegova snimka Road Shows,Vol. 1, albumom sezone. No, nama je mnogo zanimljivija kategorija za novija imena (Rising Star), a ove godine tu titulu nosi njujorški saksofonist Rudresh Mahanthappa (rođen u Trstu(!) 1971.), čiji album Kinsmen (5. na listi najboljih albuma ove sezone) možete posuditi u Knjižnici. Pod opširnije pregledajte listu naslova nagrađenih glazbenika koje možete posuditi u Knjižnici, kao i one koje preporučujemo za Vašu nabavu!
