Hilmar Jensson: Transparence

Read "Transparence" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic


Given that not one of the eight tracks definingTransparence, the darkly compelling debut from Norway's Hitra, runs longer than six minutes, the quartet covers a lot of ground. Like a ticket out of isolation, Transparence transports your homebound head to the grey expanse of Northern Atlantic skies. Billowing by design, their clouds of music make you ...

The feel becomes a bit more angular with the next, the drums leaning somewhat ...

Silent Fires: Forests

Read "Forests" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


Non è solo un affascinante progetto elettroacustico questo debutto del quartetto italo-norvegese Silent Fires, comprendente Alessandro Sgobbio al pianoforte (autore di tutte le composizioni), Hilde Marie Holsen alla tromba ed elettronica, Håkon Aase al violino e percussioni e la cantante Karoline Wallace. In opere simili è molto forte il rischio di cadere in superficialità, eccessi estetizzanti ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
