Il moto multiplo di Craig Taborn

Read "Il moto multiplo di Craig Taborn" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

Prima di leggerne le parole precise ed esaurienti nell'intervista, è il caso di ricordare alcune cose di Craig Taborn, pianista quarantasettenne che si colloca ai massimi livelli della scena contemporanea.
In primo luogo la sua profonda curiosità intellettuale, che lo porta a un intreccio di interessi nei confronti di forme diverse dell'espressione artistica e della ...

Charnett Moffett: Music From Our Soul

Read "Music From Our Soul" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Bassist Charnett Moffett is one of those figures that we tend to take for granted, mostly because it seems like he's simply always been here. The once-upon-a-time child prodigy has been omnipresent on the scene since the mid '80s, holding down the low end for jazz's elite while bringing strength, consistency, and creativity to the fore ...

Peeter Uuskyla / Tellef Øgrim / Anders Berg: Ullr

Read "Ullr" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Thirty years ago, the trio Power Tools made a one-off recording Strange Meeting (Antilles New Directions, 1987). The long out-of-print LP by Bill Frisell, Melvin Gibbs, and Ronald Shannon Jackson is on many a collector's want list. While only a short-lived band, its memory persists. It was for many, a perfect storm of free-metal-jazz music. If ...

Tisziji Munoz: Alpha Nebula Expanded: The Monster Peace

Read "Alpha Nebula Expanded: The Monster Peace" reviewed by Dave Wayne

The visionary guitarist Tisziji Munoz was introduced to the listening public in the late 1970s as a sideman on a now impossibly rare Pharoah Sanders album (Pharoah, India Navigation, 1977). This was followed by his debut as a leader, Rendezvous With Now (India Navigation, 1978). After a decade-long gap in recording activity, Munoz began releasing albums ...

Stirrup: Cuts

Read "Cuts" reviewed by Mark Corroto

The good news about the end of record stores as brick-and-mortar businesses is that people like you--weirdos and freaks (ok, me too)--cannot be segregated into the jazz section, and Fred Lonberg-Holm's music may be available to a wider listening audience. That might be just our dream, but with music coming from his trio Stirrup, internet crawlers ...

Peter Brötzmann/Full Blast: Risc

Read "Risc" reviewed by Mark Corroto

The Full Blast trio of saxophonist Peter Brötzmann, Marino Pliakas, and Michael Wertmüller get an injection of fervency with the electronics of Gerd Rische. As if they needed any more ferocity. Risc is the fifth official release by the trio, and follows the ambitious Sketches And Ballads (Trost, 2011).

Like Brötzmann's Last Exit recordings ...

Montreux Through The Decades: Jazz Recordings, Part One

Read "Montreux Through The Decades: Jazz Recordings, Part One" reviewed by Ian Patterson

To celebrate Montreux Jazz Festival's 50th edition in 2016, and as a posthumous tribute to the festival's founder, the late Claude Nobs, All About Jazz is launching a new column entitled Montreux Through the Decades, which will periodically present reviews of officially released live recordings from MJF, from its first edition in 1967 to the present. ...

On Kaa Davis: X-Ray Search Light Project: Djuke Music

Read "X-Ray Search Light Project: Djuke Music" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Though he's logged considerable time in Sun Ra's Arkestra, Kenny Wolleson's Himalayas Collective, and groups led by Donald Ayler, Charles 'Bobo' Shaw, and Luther Thomas, On Kaa Davis is not just another avant-garde jazz dude. As a teenager, the Cleveland, Ohio native journeyed to Vienna, Austria, where he studied classical guitar at the Hochschule for Music ...

Something old, something new, something reissued, something Brötzmann blew.

Read "Something old, something new, something reissued, something Brötzmann blew." reviewed by Mark Corroto

Can the entire history of a musical genre be encoded in one man's DNA? If that is possible, then reading the DeoxyriboNucleic Acid molecules in saxophonist Peter Brötzmann's body would yield all the information a musical scientist studying the development of free jazz would require. Since the 1960s, he has been in the center of the ...
