Yotam Silberstein: Future Memories

Read "Future Memories" reviewed by Friedrich Kunzmann

If 2016's The Village (jazz&people) qualified as a step outside of Yotam Silberstein 's comfort zone, Future Memories may as well be considered a giant leap. The New York-based guitarist has evidently arrived at a point in his career where he feels free to play and compose as he pleases, and makes his confidence known to ...

Jay Lawrence: Sonic Paragon

Read "Sonic Paragon" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Sonic Paragon is a satisfying set grounded in the idea of broad appeal. Drummer Jay Lawrence is no purist, and he's certainly not stubbornly set on a single course, yet he's wholly cognizant of the fact that music is both for the makers and the takers. And with an understanding of that need for balance and ...

Tessa Souter: Picture in Black and White

Read "Picture in Black and White" reviewed by Victor L. Schermer

New York-based vocalist Tessa Souter is becoming treasured among jazz fans and musicians alike. Equally effective in clubs, in concert and on her several fine recordings, she combines the sonority, vocal range and discipline of a classical contralto with subtle and sultry jazz inflections. Everything she sings is well thought out and in good taste. She ...

Day 2 Of 8th Annual Red Hook Jazz Festival Re-scheduled To September 20, 1-6pm

“The Red Hook Jazz Festival exists contentedly on the margins, like its namesake neighborhood and much of the music on its bill... The mood in the audience was neighborly, with a higher ratio of small children to youngish adults than I’ve seen at any musical event not expressly pitched as a kids’ show.” —Nate Chinen, New York Times “The lineup seems ...

Reggie Quinerly: Invictus

Read "Invictus" reviewed by Hrayr Attarian

Drummer Reggie Quinelry's second release as a leader Invictus is a collection of short, tightly woven and compelling pieces that Quinerly and his quintet interpret with understated fervor and sublime elegance. Quinerly showcases his compositional and leadership skills while shunning the spotlight himself. He allows his sidemen ample room for soloing as he directs the intricacies ...

C. Andrew Hovan's Top 10 for 2014

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

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 ...

Brian Charette: Good Tipper

Read "Good Tipper" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Nine of the eleven tracks on organist Brian Charette's Square One (Posi-Tone, 2014) were originals, but that doesn't mean he's uninterested in tackling the music of others. In fact, judging by this album, it would seem that he really digs digging into covers. Everybody from film score icon John Barry to tunesmith Jimmy Webb to saxophonist ...

Walt Weiskopf: Overdrive

Read "Overdrive" reviewed by C. Andrew Hovan

Since making his first two records on the independent Iris label back in the early '90s, Walt Weiskopf has staked a claim as one of the most advanced and iconic tenor saxophonists in jazz. However, even as he went on to record one great record after another for Criss Cross beginning in 1993, Weiskopf remained under ...
