Torbjorn Zetterberg & Den Stora Fragan: Are You Happy ?

Read "Are You Happy ?" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Il brano iniziale, a parte i primi ingannevoli secondi di tastiera elettrica, possiede l'energia, il suono scuro, il tumultuoso fondale ritmico, il ribollire dei fiati tipico degli ensemble di Charles Mingus. Sette minuti abbondanti che fanno bella mostra delle potenzialità del gruppo, che a pieno organico palesa un suono orchestrale ed esalta le peculiarità delle singole ...

Heavy Rotation For A Pandemic Summer

Read "Heavy Rotation For A Pandemic Summer" reviewed by Mark Corroto

In the summer of 2020 one result of the COVID-19 isolation, and artists inability to tour and perform is that they have time to deal with projects halted by this pandemic. Musicians, producers, and engineers have mixed, mastered and released an abundance of music. Many of the titles have been, and will be covered by our ...

Viktor Skokic Sextett: Basement Music

Read "Basement Music" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Written in his basement, and recorded prior to the lockdown, the music is actually the converse of social distancing—'converse' as in conversation. His 'Sextett' ...

Anders Jormin: Poems for Orchestra

Read "Poems for Orchestra" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Suggestivo e inusuale lavoro del contrabbassista svedese Anders Jormin, uno dei grandi interpreti scandinavi dello strumento, questo Poems for Orchestra mette in musica una serie di poesie dedicate alla natura, avvalendosi della Bohusiän Big Band e, come solisti, della cantante svedese Lena Willemark—ben nota per i suoi lavori in equilibrio tra folk, improvvisazione e contemporanea, editi ...

AP6C Alberto Pinton Sestetto Contemporaneo: Layers

Read "Layers" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Un sestetto dalle geometrie indiscutibilmente inusuali sta al centro di questo nuovo, ancora una volta ottimo, lavoro del veneziano (ma da tempo immemorabile svedese d'adozione) Alberto Pinton, che si destreggia fra sax baritono, clarinetti e flauti vari determinando (ma non è una regola fissa) le dinamiche dei nove brani che compongono l'album, tutti a sua firma ...

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.
