England-Italy: A Jazz Re-match, Second Half

Read "England-Italy: A Jazz Re-match, Second Half" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

Welcome to the second half of England-Italy, a jazz rematch [for the first half click here]. England and Italy have both championed jazz very early on, and they have been among the first European jazz scenes to develop a recognizable accent in how they speak the jazz language, light-heartedness and sense of humour being integral aspects of that accent. Even though Italian and English sound quite different as languages, their two jazz accents are surprisingly similar in how they both ...

Singing and Plinkin'

Read "Singing and Plinkin'" reviewed by Patrick Burnette

We look at two lesser known vocalists tonight and two fairly obscure pianists, and things turn out pretty well if it wasn't for that darn echo. What's going on in the Riverside studios, anyway? At some point, the episode turns into a trivia show, but at the last minute, John Cale turns up to set things right and Pat gets a few words in edgewise about the jny: Denver jazz scene.PlaylistDiscussion of Mike Nock's album Climbing ...


Marco Colonna, Resilient Vesssels & Muriel Grossmann

Read "Marco Colonna, Resilient Vesssels & Muriel Grossmann" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

Three new recordings by excellent reed players highlight this edition. Italy's multi-instrumentalist Marco Colonna fronts a risk-taking trio with double bassist Dario Miranda and drummer Fabrizio Spera on their recording N-EST, while one of the hottest saxophonists in the universe—James Brandon Lewis—is a member of Resilient Vessels, a quartet assembled by bassist and visual artist Josh Werner for a residency. Spain's Muriel Grossman has her usual quintet with her on Quiet Earth , where she continues to reflect spiritual and ...


England-Italy: A Jazz Re-match, First Half

Read "England-Italy: A Jazz Re-match, First Half" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

A few days ago, England and Italy faced each other in the finals of the European Soccer Cup. It was a compelling match with a nail-biting end between two teams that exceeded expectations and that promise to have a brilliant future. Italy won in a penalty shootout because in sports—especially in the finals of a tournament—there has to be a winner and a loser. That's why we much prefer arts—and music in particular—where usually everyone wins (or everyone loses... if ...


Allison Miller and Friends

Read "Allison Miller and Friends" reviewed by Russell Perry

For over a decade, drummer Allison Miller has led and been the principal composer for the band Boom Tic Boom. The group was launched in 2010 as a quartet with Jenny Scheinman on violin, Myra Melford on piano, and Todd Sickafoose on bass, but was augmented to a sextet more recently with the addition of virtuosic clarinetist Ben Goldberg and cornetist Kirk Knuffke. Each of these strong players has produced powerful music outside the band, making this an under-recognized supergroup. ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
