01 julho, 2016

Divulgada a lista da edição 64 da Downbeat Critics Poll.
Nomes já consagrados figuram entre os vencedores, como Joe Lovano, Charles Lloyd e Wayne Shorter, mas o mais interessante nessas listas são as novidades, que aguçam nossos ouvidos para a busca de novos sons.

Assim como na edição anterior, dobradinha para o pianista Vijay Iyer, o contrabaixista Christian McBride, o saxofonista barítono Gary Smulyan, a clarinetista Anat Cohen e as vozes de Cécile McLorin Salvant e Gregory Porter.
Entre os destaques, o saxofonista Kamasi Washington, que ganhou muita força com o lançamento do seu álbum triplo "The Epic", eleito álbum do ano e artista em ascensão nas categorias jazz e sax tenor.
Ainda, o pianista Randy Weston eleito para o Hall of Fame; Maria Schneider, vencedora em 3 categorias - big band, arranjadora e compositora; e o blues de Buddy Guy.
