Adriano Adewale

Throw aside preconceived musical prejudices, abandon all attempts to catalogue: a rich chemistry of cultural influences is at work in when the Adriano Adewale Group stop onto the stage. Rooted in the musical traditions of Nigeria, Angola and Brazil and infused with contemporary European classical and jazz styles, their debut album SEMENTES is a colourful cocktail of infectiously funky rhythms and intimate soulful ballads peppered with free-jazz improvisation.

Live From Old York: Jim White, Vijay Venkat, Adriano Adewale & Benjamin Taubkin

Read "Live From Old York: Jim White, Vijay Venkat, Adriano Adewale & Benjamin Taubkin" reviewed by Martin Longley

Jim White Fibbers September 18, 2013 Three hours of oddball Americana. Well, the evening's opening act was a local songster, but Boss Caine sounded like he was growling deeply from across the Atlantic. He was followed with virtually no pause by Paul Fonfara, who offered five of his very ...

Benjamin Taubkin - Adriano Adewale: The Vortex Sessions

Read "The Vortex Sessions" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Idee inusuali ma incerte connotano la recente produzione discografica di questo duo brasiliano. Le infinite sfumature e i registri espressivi della propria tradizione musicale vengono abbandonati dai due musicisti in favore di un jazz elegante e lirico, tutt'altro che originale sul piano dell'organizzazione musicale. I due evitano le pastoie del Brasile da cartolina, ma rimangono intrappolati ...

Read "Every New Day" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

There's a stark beauty to Every New Day, the third album from Oriole, that speaks of the majesty of vast open spaces. For the most part, the warmth and splendor of these spaces gives the music a positivity and optimism, but there are also times when it takes on a more downbeat and reflective quality. The ...

Paul Booth: Trilateral

Read "Trilateral" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

For some people the Big 4-0 is the key, for others it's the Big 5-0 or 6-0 or 7-0. For saxophonist Paul Booth it was his forthcoming 33rd birthday that proved to be a cause for reflection. As the day loomed in 2010, Booth was already thinking about a trio record with bass and drums. The ...

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.
