The Ken Peplowski Big Band: Sunrise

Read "Sunrise" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Many contemporary big bands are all about “breaking new ground" and “exploring new pathways." Not this one. Ace clarinetist Ken Peplowski, who has performed and recorded with myriad large ensembles, at home and abroad, but has seldom led one--although he did record one other big-band album, Last Swing of the Century (Concord Jazz, 1999)--simply wants to ...

Read "Geno Thackara's Best Releases of 2017" reviewed by Geno Thackara

My second year playing in the All About Jazz sandbox has been even more packed with great times and great musical discoveries than the first.

Old, Borrowed and Just a Little Blue

Read "Old, Borrowed and Just a Little Blue" reviewed by Geno Thackara

How many collections of standards does the jazz world really need? The answer, of course, is that there's always room for more as long as the players and listeners can find something relevant and fresh. Every piece on offer in this batch has been around for several decades at least, but these old things never fail ...

Few things are a given, yet we can always count on a flood of new music making its way into the world over the course of a year. In 2017 some of the best jazz found its path by looking forward, doubling back, and/or branching out. In short, this music and the dedicated artists who make ...

Read "U.S. Jazz From Denmark: Six Recent SteepleChase Releases" reviewed by David A. Orthmann

The opportunity to listen to six recently released discs on the venerable SteepleChase label (and the SteepleChase LookOut branch) is a little like reading an anthology of short stories by distinguished authors from a particular year or period. You get a hearty helping of vital, mature voices, most of whom operate somewhere in the jazz mainstream, ...

Ehud Asherie: Shuffle Along

Read "Shuffle Along" reviewed by Maurizio Zerbo

Il progetto intrapreso da Ehud Asherie per questo album è ambizioso; re-interpretare il songbook di “Shuffle Along," primo musical di Broadway di matrice afroamericana. Le musiche composte nel 1921 da Eubie Blake brillano di una nuova luce, in tutte le declinazioni filologiche (ragtime, stride) e moderne.
