There are some very creative folks hanging about this week, headed by one of the more unique recordings of the year so far—Kaijū Eats Cheeseburgers—by the uncategorizable trio from France led by drummer/percussionist Sylvain Darrifourcq with saxophonist Manuel Hermia and cellist Valentin Ceccaldi. It's very different but very exciting stuff. Also new from Europe and more tilting the idiom are the trio of Swedish pianist Lisa Ullen with bassist Joe Williamson and drummer Erik Carlsson, young guns pianist Elias Stemeseder and drummer Max Andrzejewski together, a pair of new releases from trombonist Samuel Blaser who seems to have an unending supply of new music, and the Urs Blochlinger Revisited ensemble keeping alive the music of the late saxophonist. And yes, as a matter of fact, there is more music from Argentina.

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!
