Joost Lijbaart: Free

Read "Free" reviewed by Mark Sullivan


When a drummer/percussionist records a solo album—especially one with the title Free—a potential listener's first expectation would likely involve long, abstract drum solos. Nothing could be further from the truth. Dutch musician Joost Lijbaart took the opportunity offered by Covid-19 downtime to craft a suite of short pieces characterized by a rich variety of timbres (including ...

Mark Sullivan's Best Releases of 2020

Read "Mark Sullivan's Best Releases of 2020" reviewed by Mark Sullivan


Despite the circumstances, this was a high volume year for album releases, rich in both quantity and quality. Mine is not a ranked listing, but more or less in reverse chronological order. Since I wrote fewer album reviews than average, for the first time I have included several releases that I did not review myself.

Liebman, Rudolph & Drake: Chi

Read "Chi" reviewed by Neri Pollastri


Poco meno di un'ora di improvvisazione divisa in sei parti, due delle quali molto lunghe, per un trio che non aveva mai suonato assieme prima e che ha una struttura piuttosto singolare, vedendo le ance di Dave Liebman accompagnate da due percussionisti, Adam Rudolph e Hamid Drake. I tre artisti si avvalgono della pregressa intesa maturata ...

Jon Hassell: Seeing Through Sound: Pentimento Volume Two

Read "Seeing Through Sound: Pentimento Volume Two" reviewed by Mark Sullivan


Visionary trumpeter-composer Jon Hassell presents another gift from his late career. The third release on his own Ndeya label, it follows the re-release of his debut album Vernal Equinox (Ndeya, 2020) and is a sequel to Listening To Pictures (Pentimento Volume One) (Ndeya, 2018). The structure is a bit different, still eight tracks, but organized as ...

Karuna Trio: Imaginary Archipelago

Read "Imaginary Archipelago" reviewed by Mark Sullivan


Percussionists Adam Rudolph and Hamid Drake, and saxophonist/multi-instrumentalist Ralph Miles Jones play together as the Karuna Trio. These spontaneous compositions were built on a deep foundation of shared experience, dating back to their teen years, for Rudolph and Drake; Rudolph and Jones later played together in the Eternal Wind quintet. The concept here is that the ...

Go: Organic Orchestra & Brooklyn Raga Massive: Ragmala: A Garland of Ragas

Read "Ragmala: A Garland of Ragas" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


Questo magistrale doppio album di Adam Rudolph nasce dalla collaborazione tra la sua Go: Organic Orchestra e il collettivo Brooklyn Raga Massive. Venti appassionanti brani che realizzano il monumento finale (ma certo non conclusivo) della quarantennale attività del percussionista dedita all'incontro tra musiche afro-americane, africane e asiatiche. Anche se Rudolph è considerato uno dei maestri della ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
