Read "Getz At The Gate" reviewed by Chris May

Avishai Cohen: Arvoles

Read "Arvoles" reviewed by Roger Farbey

In the late 1990s, bassist Avishai Cohen was living and working in New York, having arrived a few years earlier from Israel. Out of the blue he received a phone call from Chick Corea which effectively changed his life. Not only did Corea offer Cohen a recording contract on the pianist's Stretch label, he also invited ...

Anker / Thomas / Flaten / Solberg: His Flight's At Ten

Read "His Flight's At Ten" reviewed by John Sharpe

Perhaps the title refers to British pianist Pat Thomas' travel schedule. If so it will be a situation that he is all too familiar with, as strangely his reputation appears greater in Europe than at home, in spite of an extensive discography and collaborations with a who's who of contemporary experimental music.

Brad Mehldau Trio: Blues and Ballads

Read "Blues and Ballads" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Call Brad Mehldau's Blues and Ballads the pianist's “Every Man Set."

There has been, from the beginning of Mehldau's career, a sense of the cerebral in his approach, with its classical music influences and his deep technical virtuosity. Throw the sometimes dense and erudite writing for selected liner notes (mostly earlier in his career) ...

Eddie Gomez: The Call of the Wild

Read "Eddie Gomez: The Call of the Wild" reviewed by Robin Arends

How to survive in jazz music? One of the people who can answer this question is bassist Eddie Gomez. With his 11 year cooperation he was the longest serving sideman of pianist Bill Evans. After interviewing Evans-bassist Chuck Israels in Holland, I called Gomez a few weeks later in his hometown. Twice there was a connection ...

Read "C. Andrew Hovan's Top 10 for 2014" reviewed by C. Andrew Hovan

This will be a first in some time. For a variety of reasons, I had to curtail my writing activities about five years ago. As a result, my limited work for All About Jazz consisted mainly of photography and live reviews. As a result, I felt less then prepared in previous years to present any kind ...
