LIVE REVIEW

Leonieke Scheuble: June 2019 Tour

Read "Leonieke Scheuble: June 2019 Tour" reviewed by David A. Orthmann

Located right in front of a train station, the South Orange Gazebo is an uncommonly boisterous location for a jazz concert. Whistles blowing, brakes screeching, trains arrive and depart every ten minutes or so. Automobiles access parking lots via a rotary about fifteen feet away. Their horns and sound systems blare as drivers compete for space. The South Orange Fire Department building stands across the street from the gazebo. On a warm evening in late June, the blast of a ...

Three Days At The Barber Shop, Part 3

Read "Three Days At The Barber Shop, Part 3" reviewed by David A. Orthmann

Rehearsal | Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 When I walk into the live room, a little early, on Day 3, Gillespie has already swapped out the piano for a Hammond B-3 organ and Leslie speaker. Three boom mics are positioned in the area closest to the window to the control room. Each one looms over a music stand. Nick and Leonieke discuss some fine points of the Hammond B-3 while she warms up. They decide ...

Three Days At The Barber Shop, Part 2

Read "Three Days At The Barber Shop, Part 2" reviewed by David A. Orthmann

Rehearsal | Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 Day 2 commences with only Nick, Leonieke, Givens, and Gillespie inside of Studio A. The instruments and mics in the live room and isolation booth are still intact from yesterday's session. While everyone sits in the control room, Nick asks Gillespie to playback “Please Send Me Someone To Love." The balance between the three instruments, as well as the strength of the individual performances, is striking. Nick and ...

Three Days At The Barber Shop, Part 1

Read "Three Days At The Barber Shop, Part 1" reviewed by David A. Orthmann

Rehearsal | Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 The Barber Shop Studios are located on the West Shore of Lake Hopatcong, a body of water spanning about four square miles, which makes it the largest freshwater body in New Jersey. The immediate neighborhood is a patchwork of bungalows, upscale homes, newly constructed townhouses, small businesses and restaurants. At one end of an extended parking lot lies a marina that is the home of several pleasure boats ...

Leonieke Scheuble's Journey Into The Art Of Jazz

Read "Leonieke Scheuble's Journey Into The Art Of Jazz" reviewed by David A. Orthmann

The setting is a living room in a suburban northern New Jersey home. For the most part, it's filled with things not necessarily available at the furniture outlets that line the local highways. An upright piano takes up most of the wall adjacent to the front door. A harpsichord spans the area between the entrances to the kitchen and the dining room. A comfortable sofa is placed between a Hammond B-3 organ and a Leslie speaker. It is clearly a ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
