ALBUM REVIEW

Hans Glawischnig: Jahira

Read "Jahira" reviewed by Raul d'Gama Rose

The tonal riches of Hans Glawischnig's Jahira are so prodigious that the album feels like a devastatingly beautiful canvas that remains constantly wet and therefore changing and shape-shifting. Glawischnig has always given notice of his propensity for colors as he held together the bottom--and sometimes the top--register of the harmonics of many breathtaking musical charts. Now in supreme command of melody (which he generously shares with a pair of saxophones) and rhythm (which he shares with a drum set), the ...

Hans Glawischnig: Panorama

Read "Panorama" reviewed by Woodrow Wilkins

There are times when it seems Europeans have a greater appreciation for musical styles that originated in the United States. Hans Glawischnig's Panorama is one example of adopting an art form, jazz, and treating it like it's his own creation. Glawischnig is a native of Graz, Austria, who moved to New York City in 1992. He graduated magna cum laude from Berklee College of Music and received his B.A. from Manhattan School of Music in 1994. His ...

Hans Glawischnig: Panorama

Read "Panorama" reviewed by Michael P. Gladstone

Bassist Hans Glawischnig was born in Graz, Austria in 1970, to an American mother and Austrian father, Dieter Glawischnig, a well-respected pianist and conductor who led the NDR Big Band for Chet Baker. The younger Glawischnig has been a New Yorker since the early 1990s and now brings his second release Panorama, following his debut recording, Common Ground (Fresh Sound/New Talent, 2001).

Glawischnig has gathered lots of work experience since his first recording, bringing nine compositions and some ...

Hans Glawischnig: Panorama

Read "Panorama" reviewed by Troy Collins

Since moving to New York in the early nineties, Austrian-born bassist Hans Glawischnig has worked regularly with such esteemed artists as Bobby Watson, Maynard Ferguson and James Moody. Regular gigs with Latin jazz legends Ray Barretto and David Sanchez helped position Glawischnig as a stellar, if unlikely, interpreter of Afro-Latin traditions.

His debut album, Common Ground (Fresh Sounds, 2001), featured loose ensemble charts with ample room for individual expression. Panorama is a more compositionally intricate affair, revealing a ...

Hans Glawischnig: Panorama

Read "Panorama" reviewed by Jerry D'Souza

Bassist Hans Glawischnig has several positive factors working for him on his second recording as leader. He writes with a fine focus, even though he goes across several styles. Melody is inherent in his compositions and so is room for improvisation. He is not averse to letting a tune blossom into something different from the stem that feeds it. He is helped by a fine group of players that he divides into trios and quartets and, for one tune, a ...

ALBUM REVIEW

Hans Glawischnig: Panorama

Read "Panorama" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

It is refreshing to listen to a jazz recording where the music is in keeping with the title. Panorama is exactly what bassist Hans Glawischnig debut on Sunnyside is. Glawischnig, an Austrian-born, New York City resident, is a bit of a panorama himself. Glawischnig's name rings true in the confines of Latin jazz, where he has spent a good deal of time woodsheading, collaborating, exploring, and defining.

Panorama is powerfully dense with complex composing and solo high-wire acts. ...

Hans Glawischnig: Panorama

Read "Panorama" reviewed by John Kelman

Despite the global nature of today's music, it might seem odd that a bassist named Hans Glawischnig has built a considerable reputation in the arenas of Central/South American-inflected jazz. But while the Austrian-born, New York-resident Glawischnig has indeed, spent considerable time with contemporary players stretching the boundaries of their cultures like pianist Luis Perdomo and alto saxophonist Miguel Zenón, as well as with the more traditional percussionist Ray Barretto, he's also worked on straight-ahead projects with artists like saxophonist James ...

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.
