Evan Parker: Crepuscule In Nickelsdorf 

Read "Crepuscule In Nickelsdorf " reviewed by Mark Corroto

Excise the notion of virtual reality and AI as the force behind the music heard on Crepuscule In Nickelsdorf by Evan Parker and Matthew Wright's Trance Map+. Undoubtedly you might be tempted to have this thought by surveying the instrumentation, which is chock-full of sampling and electronics. Let's reserve those thoughts for a listen to this ...

John Butcher

Read "John Butcher" reviewed by John Eyles

In the Building a Jazz Library article on Evan Parker, it says that seasoned Parker followers would describe him as the finest improvising saxophonist of his generation. Curiously, many of those same people would use exactly that phrase about John Butcher. The simple explanation for this apparent contradiction is that we are talking about two generations; ...

Adam Linson: Figures and Grounds

Read "Figures and Grounds" reviewed by John Eyles

The personnel of double-bassist Adam Linson's System Quartet is so good that it sets the juices flowing even before a note of music has been heard.

Adam Linson: Cut and Continuum

Read "Cut and Continuum" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Cut and Continuum rappresenta il debutto discografico del contrabbassista Adam Linson, già figura di rilievo dell'ottetto di Evan Parker. Non aspettatevi un album facile, piuttosto un prodotto dalle mille sfaccettature, sicuramente in grado di sollevare molte polemiche, forse un po' ostico, ma per niente banale. Ed è infatti la coerenza logica che sorregge il lavoro a ...

Adam Linson: Cut and Continuum

Read "Cut and Continuum" reviewed by John Eyles

Whatever your reaction to the words “solo bass album, Adam Linson's debut will probably change your mind. Previously best known--if at all--as the bassist in Evan Parker's Electro-Acoustic Ensemble on The Eleventh Hour (ECM, 2005), Linson is here given centre stage and produces a recording that commands attention. His album of solo double bass largely eschews ...

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.
