He published his theory in Helter Skelter, the best-selling true-crime book of all time. …

Jazz | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 00:57:37 | 132 MB
Label: Songlines

Vancouver guitar/oud player Gordon Grdina continues to passionately explore the depths of jazz improvisation, cross-cultural fusions and the fun that comes with cutting loose (Stuart Derdeyn). His new and wildly eclectic NY avant jazz project combines intricate counterpoint with the ebb and flow of dynamic yet focused improvisation. The band consists of Oscar Noriega (alto sax, clarinet, bass clarinet), Russ Lossing (piano/Rhodes), and Satoshi Takeishi (drums). Grdina takes inspiration from the complexity of Bartok, the freedom of Ornette Coleman, the energy and logical construction of ideas in Soundgarden, and the delicacy of Webern.

Les recherches des dernières décennies, fondées sur une réévaluation des sources écrites et sur les progrès de l'archéologie, ont libéré cette période du carcan des idées reçues. …
