Enrique Haneine: Unlayered

Read "Unlayered" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic


Whether he leads from his drummer's stool or his the piano bench, drummer/composer/multi-instrumentalist Enrique Haneine is a mischievous creator, assembling different blocks to form other different blocks, stacking, unstacking, widening the fall zone with each new release. It's an aesthetic that keeps you jumping hoops but, most importantly, listening hard to the logic employed. But Haneine insists we should not be content to just sit and listen.

Read "The Mind's Mural" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic


Drawing from influences as diverse as his Latin heritage, Middle Eastern rhythms, and the sounds of New York life, Grammy-nominated drummer/percussionist and pianist Enrique Haneine fashions his latest, The Mind's Mural, into a totally accessible free-form session that is both easy and challenging to the ear.

Enrique Haneine: Instants Of Time

Read "Instants Of Time" reviewed by Hrayr Attarian


New York based multi-instrumentalist Enrique Haneine dazzled the music world with superb pianism on the 2005 collaborative release At the End of the Day (Foxhaven, 2005).

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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!
