Eddie Daniels: 'Sings' Ivan Lins

Read "Eddie Daniels: 'Sings' Ivan Lins" reviewed by R.J. DeLuke


Eddie Daniels, one of the finest of clarinetists during his decades in jazz, is still an active, curious, exploring musician. He welcomes new things. His latest album, Night Kisses: A Tribute to Ivan Lins (Resonance Records), set to be released at the end of July, represents something new for him. Music is an art that always reveals something fresh for those aware enough to look for it. For Daniels, the new project lit one fire and ...

Eddie Daniels: Heart Of Brazil

Read "Heart Of Brazil" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


When Resonance Records' George Klabin pitched Eddie Daniels on this project saluting Egberto Gismonti, the legendary reedist was enthused yet somewhat trepidatious. Gismonti's music--a sui generis form of fantasia that proves evocative in its blending of Brazilian forms, a jazz harmonist's argot, and European classical languages--is no easy nut to crack or translate. But Daniels, of course, is no slouch. A doyen of the clarinet and an expert at navigating tricky divides like the potentially deadly jazz-classical fault line, he ...

Eddie Daniels & Roger Kellaway: Just Friends

Read "Just Friends" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


Clarinetist Eddie Daniels and pianist Roger Kellaway are more than just friends; they're musical soulmates, connected in pulse and impulse, focused on the same syncretic sum of sounds and styles, and bound by a telepathic rapport. Both men are virtuosos of the highest order, but that's beside the point. The real measure of their artistic collaborations is tied to the way they communicate and connect, not how fast they can go or how many notes each can cram into a ...

Read "Duke at the Roadhouse: Live in Santa Fe" reviewed by Hrayr Attarian


For their third collaboration on IPO records, veteran musicians pianist Roger Kellaway and multireed player Eddie Daniels recorded a benefit concert for “Santa Fe Center for Therapeutic Riding." The resulting Duke at the Roadhouse: Live in Santa Fe is a tribute to pianist and composer Duke Ellington comprising eight of his standards and an original a piece by Kellaway and Daniels.

Eddie Daniels & Roger Kellaway: Duke at the Roadhouse: Live in Santa Fe

Read "Duke at the Roadhouse: Live in Santa Fe" reviewed by Jack Bowers


For a powerful adrenaline rush, it's hard to beat a full house (sixteen or seventeen single-minded musicians wailing in unison and swinging like there's no tomorrow), although there's a lot to be said for a pair of aces, too. That's the hand that's dealt on Duke at the Roadhouse: Live in Santa Fe, the aces in question being clarinetist / tenor saxophonist Eddie Daniels and pianist Roger Kellaway (with cellist James Holland raising the ante as a wild card on ...

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!
