Threesomes! If that's your thing, go for it, but in jazz there's no doubt of the dominance of trios as a common format. Four outstanding trios highlight this edition of OMJ: Portugal's explorative duo ¡Golpe! adds the outstanding bassist Masa Kamaguchi for its excellent new release, Totem, while two others maintain what's working: Bill Frisell with Thomas Morgan and Rudy Royston and England's Josephine Davies using saxophone and her Satori trio to take us through a Buddhism-related progam of fine music. Fellow Taint Radio host, saxophonist Ken Field, likely had no idea he would be making a recording when he stopped over in San Francisco on his way home, but one extemporaneous house concert later? Iridescence happened. Out of Your Heads Record label has a new offshoot—Untamed—and we dig into its first releases from Nick Dunston, Anna Webber and Michael Formanek.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
