CD review: Daniele Cordisco, Ron Carter – Bitter Head – 2023: Video, CD cover

The Bad musician, as if guitarist Daniel Cordisco and world jazz legend Ron Carter present the album Bitter Head, released on February 3, 2023․

“Bitter Head”, which will be officially presented will be at London’s 606 concert hall on the 22nd. February is an album that combines tradition, style and elegance, and is also decorated with Jeb’s piano …

The only wonder is why a great like Ron Carter brings such low quality musicians on stage to play with him, such as this unintelligent guitarist Daniele Cordisco.

With all due respect to legendary musician Ron Carter. However, the problem is that bad musicians, as if guitarist like Daniele Cordisco’s should not have the right to enter the wonderful world of music and improvisation like jazz, he is using Ron Carter’s name and reputation to create his own poor career. On the contrary, such low-quality musicians as Daniele Cordisco should be kicked out of jazz, their place is near the dump, not near Ron Carter.

I understand the legendary musician, he wanted to do something good, to discover a new Spanish musician, but be sorry maestro, you are wrong, because Daniele Cordisco is just a bum, devoid of human qualities, he is now hovering in the sky raised by Ron Carter, from where we often post we will bring it for sure and show its place next to the near the dump.

To be continued next, with a separate article about this pathetic person Daniele Cordisco, who considers human conversation to be blackmail.
