David Finck: The Bass, Scatting Offenses, and the Back Hoe

Read "David Finck: The Bass, Scatting Offenses, and the Back Hoe" reviewed by Dr. Judith Schlesinger

David Finck is not only a first-call bassist with a long resume of high-profile recordings and gigs, but he's one of the most versatile musicians on any instrument.

Benny Green: Live in Santa Cruz

Read "Live in Santa Cruz" reviewed by Luigi Sforza

Di sicuro Benny Green è un pianista dalle eccellenti doti. Vulcanico, inventivo, tecnicamente impeccabile, in Live in Santa Cruz Green declina in maniera eccelsa il linguaggio tradizionale del jazz. Elaborate con gusto e senso della melodia, le nove tracce del disco dichiarano la loro appartenenza al mondo hard bop. Nel fraseggiare con scioltezza e decisione insieme, ...

John Swana: Bright Moments

Read "Bright Moments" reviewed by Victor L. Schermer

Simply put, this album is so listenable and stood out so noticeably among the many CDs I've been spinning for myself recently, that I thought All About Jazz readers ought to know about it. I first heard then trumpeter John Swana a decade or more ago when he jammed at pianist Tom Lawton's memorable long-term gig ...

Lee Konitz: Frescalalto

Read "Frescalalto" reviewed by Luca Canini

Lo sfizio del primo disco su Impulse! se l'è tolto alla soglia dei novanta, ennesima tappa di una carriera che per raccontarla non basterebbero due Treccani con relative appendici. Una vita in jazz come poche ce ne sono state, e come mai più (forse) ce ne saranno, quella di Lee Konitz.

Dagli esordi ...

Jazz Education: The Next Generation, Part 2

Read "Jazz Education: The Next Generation, Part 2" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Part 1 of Jazz Education: The Next Generation explored how the early days of music and--specifically--jazz music was approached through various channels of formal education. The long, arduous process of creating an accepting environment for jazz education necessitated moving the art form from a vaudevillian status through a firewall of academic elitism and prejudice to a ...

Kenny Washington: Moanin'

Read "Moanin'" reviewed by Chris Mosey

Feed “Kenny Washington" into Google and up come “Kenny Washington (Football player)," “Kenny Washington (Basketball)" and “Kenny Washington (Drummer)." None of whom is the Kenny Washington who wowed Danish jazz audiences for three nights at Jazzhus Montmartre, Copenhagen in October 2015.

That Kenny Washington was born in New Orleans and presently inhabits the ...

Tony Bennett & Bill Charlap: The Silver Lining: The Songs of Jerome Kern

Read "The Silver Lining: The Songs of Jerome Kern" reviewed by James Doherty

Tony Bennett and pianist Bill Charlap explore the songbook of Jerome Kern on this new release from RPM/Columbia Records. A return to intimate small group jazz, the album marks a welcome reprieve for Bennett, whose work in recent years has been dominated by over-produced duets with an array of current pop superstars. Charlap's well thought out ...

Gent Jazz Festival
Bijloke
Gent, Belgium
July 10-12, 2015

Part 1 | Part 2

A bold beginning was made with the festival's opening night, perhaps concentrating on some of director Bertrand Flamang's personal favourites. This evening was never destined to be a sell-out session, but ...
