David S. Ware Quartet: Théâtre Garonne, 2008

Read "Théâtre Garonne, 2008" reviewed by Mark Corroto

In 2008, when this live concert was recorded, saxophonist David S. Ware was ill, but concert goers would have no idea of this fact. He has been suffering, since 1999 from kidney failure and eventually had a kidney transplant in 2009. Ware and the latest configuration of his quartet traveled to Toulouse, France, just a few ...

Rich Halley: Terra Incognita

Read "Terra Incognita" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

On paper this is a very promising match-up: uninhibited tenor saxophonist Rich Halley backed by the relentless force of pianist Matthew Shipp and his current trio. For the most part, the resulting session delivers on its promise although at times Halley's playing is shoved so far to the front of the mix it drowns out everything ...

Federico Ughi: Transoceanico

Read "Transoceanico" reviewed by Patrick Burnette

Dozens of jazz albums modeled on trumpeter Miles Davis's Miles Smiles (Columbia, 1966) or saxophonist John Coltrane's Crescent (Impulse!, 1964) get released each year, but a record reminiscent of Albert Ayler's Spiritual Unity (ESP-Disc, 1964) is less common. Drummer Federico Ughi's Transoceanico nods vigorously in Ayler's direction, even as it marks Ughi's twentieth anniversary as a ...

Ross Hammond: Follow Your Heart

Read "Follow Your Heart" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Have you doubted the existence of God? Wondered if there is a place called heaven? You may react to those questions with an emphatic “no," or, if your answer is you have “no doubts," you posses a substance called faith, an article beyond reason and knowledge. Listening to Follow You Heart by guitarist Ross Hammond bolsters ...

Luca Segala: Cloudriding

Read "Cloudriding" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Italy continues to be a source a wonderfully original and thoroughly modern jazz. Maybe there's something in the water over there but, for whatever reason, everytime I check my e-mail or snail mail there seems to be something wonderful and Italian in it. I keep hoping for a pair of handmade shoes, a nice shirt, or ...

Rejoice - Three New Ivo Perelman Discs

Read "Rejoice - Three New Ivo Perelman Discs" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Just think what could have been if artists like Jimmy Lyons or Albert Ayler were recording today. We might have had the ability to witness their development and observe how creative music gets nudged in new and different directions. That's exactly the gift we're given with the proliferation of recent Ivo Perelman recordings. The São Paulo-born, ...

Frank Lacy: That Which Is Planted

Read "That Which Is Planted" reviewed by Mark Corroto

The real reason the revolution will not be televised (with apologies to Gil Scott Heron) is that the sound of the revolution is free jazz. While those street fighting men are satisfied to throw rock music up against the wall, the real uprising is music of bands like 1032K. With roots in the streets and lofts ...

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.
