Album Review

(on previous Massimo Discepoli's album, Parallax)

“A striking work” Battiti (Radio Rai 3)

“A beautiful journey” À découvrir absolument

“This album is a real treat for musicians of all sorts and dreamers alike” Peek-A-Boo

“The album seems to be completely singular. Discepoli’s experiments pay off– Parallax is highly recommended.” Foreign Accents

“Percussionist Massimo Discepoli introduces a modified sound on Parallax, with melodic ambience that borders on post-rock” A Closer Listen

“A varied set of ambient soundscapes in which the foregrounding of instrumentation helps establish and maintain (for the most part) a sense of direction in an all-too-often meandering musical genre” The Sound Projector

“The pieces are exquisite miniatures, detailed and precise, able to contain whole worlds within them” We need no swords

“Ambient music without compromise, in which the main instrument is still, surprisingly, the acoustic drum, albeit transfigured in a new role” Suono (June 2015)

“Eight compositions[...]that rise above the average by virtue of very fine textures, with drum parts in the background that give dynamism and fullness to the sound.[...]A good album.” Blow Up (October 2014)

“Eight ambient fluorescence to light in the gloom” Kathodik

“A delicious paradox” Drumset Mag (December 2014)

“It's a fascinating journey from start to finish, through various moods and levels of intensity[...]Fans of atmospheric music should give this a listen; it might keep them up at night — in the best possible way.” Exposé

“One (talented) man ambient album, somewhat unique in the prominent placement of drums” KFJC 89.7 FM

“High quality music for connoisseurs” Darkroom

“A minimal ambient basis on which [Massimo Discepoli] lays percussion improvisations, usually discrete and lightweight” EtherREAL

“Parallax is a seeming paradox that ends up being a delight to listen to.” Stationary Travels

“An abstract and classy work” Arlequins

“The originality in the Parallax experience lies in providing a different point of view: you can soar in the infinite spaces with the help of electronics, but you never get the impression of constructions built for their own sake

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
