Chris Montague: Warmer Than Blood

Read "Warmer Than Blood" reviewed by Chris May

Spring 2020 has produced two notable albums from British guitarists. In April we had Rob Luft's exquisite Life Is The Dancer (Edition). In May we have Chris Montague's own-name debut, Warmer Than Blood. Like Luft, Montague writes engaging tunes and both albums are engagingly melodic; Montague's arrangements, however, are more open-ended, giving the music a collective ...

Let Spin: Steal The Light

Read "Steal The Light" reviewed by Chris May

Formed in 2014, London's Let Spin is an electric quartet peopled by musicians who emerged around a decade earlier as part of a scene which was rather lazily dubbed “punk jazz" by British music journalists. The music was certainly loud, irreverent and in-your-face, but it was played by musicians who were conservatoire graduates, a demographic not ...

Pulled By Magnets: Rose Golden Doorways

Read "Rose Golden Doorways" reviewed by Chris May

The highs have been Himalayan. Perhaps most notably, he played a key role in reeds player Shabaka Hutchings' Sons Of ...

Andy Sheppard: Tales From the Bristol Underground Jazz Revolution

Read "Andy Sheppard: Tales From the Bristol Underground Jazz Revolution" reviewed by Ian Patterson

"Jazz has always been an underground thing. It doesn't have the power and might of opera, but it should," says Andy Sheppard, shortly after the UK premier of Surrounded by Sea (ECM, 2015) at the Bristol Jazz & Blues Festival. “Everyone in the music industry has a respect for jazz music, and they should, I think, ...

Peter Ehwald: Double Trouble

Read "Double Trouble" reviewed by Ian Patterson

It doesn't always follow that the teacher channels the direction a student takes. In separate stints in London and New York, German saxophonist Peter Ehwald has studied with bassist John Patitucci, saxophonists Julian Argüelles, Stan Sulzmann and Rich Perry, yet his style is not nearly as based in the tradition as might be expected. Ehwald displayed ...

During the last decade, British jazz has been booming and London has become, once again, one of the jazz capitals of the world.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
