Mark Wingfield & Gary Husband: Tor & Vale

Read "Tor & Vale" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Before receiving widespread exposure as the keyboardist with John McLaughlin's The 4th Dimension band, Gary Husband's notoriety was firmly centered on his polyrhythmic progressive rock and jazz drumming, rising through the ranks by accompanying prodigious guitarists Allan Holdsworth and Robin Trower, amid stints with Level 42, UK and other notables. Moreover, idiosyncratic guitarist Mark Wingfield's notoriety ...

Ant Law: Life I Know

Read "Life I Know" reviewed by Roger Farbey

Ant Law's third album and the follow-up to Zero Sum World (Whirlwind, 2015), is an impressive affair. The eight compositions reflect some of the guitarist's influences and experiences, real or imaginary. Since moving to London in the 2000s, Law has acted as sideman to various leading musicians including Tim Garland and recorded on Partikel's third album, ...

Human Element: You Are In You

Read "You Are In You" reviewed by Mike Jacobs

Seeking to expand upon the stylistic legacy of Joe Zawinul... Only a group of pretty heavily respected musicians could pull off a mission statement like that. Yet that's pretty much what keyboardist Scott Kinsey, bassist Matthew Garrison, drummer Gary Novak, and percussionist / vocalist Arto Tuncboyaciyan declared when they formed Human Element.

Leonardo Pavkovic: Nothing is Ordinary

Read "Leonardo Pavkovic: Nothing is Ordinary" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

More than any other person, Leonardo Pavkovic has made me write some crazy shit. Pavkovic is the primal force behind the joyously eclectic MoonJune Records, which he established in 2001. “Established" may not be the right word: “I am truly an unusual and rules breaking call-it-record-company with a 'label' identity despite the fact that ...

Gary Husband: A Meeting Of Spirits

Read "A Meeting Of Spirits" reviewed by Roger Farbey

Pianist and percussionist Gary Husband is one of the world's most gifted musicians. It would be more accurate to say that he is not merely supremely talented but also a true virtuoso of both drums and keyboards. He played on John McLaughlin's Industrial Zen, released in 2006 and with the guitarist's 4th Dimension since its 2010 ...

Ultimate Collectors' Edition

Read "Ultimate Collectors' Edition" reviewed by John Kelman

Well, there's certainly been a wait for this one, but for fans of what may be the last high profile progressive rock group to emerge in the 1970s, U.K.'s Ultimate Collectors' Edition proves well worth it. What began as an already sizeable 16-disc box for a group that, during its relatively brief tenure, released just two ...

Levin Minnemann Rudess: From the Law Offices of Levin Minnemann Rudess

Read "Levin Minnemann Rudess: From the Law Offices of Levin Minnemann Rudess" reviewed by John Kelman

It may look good on paper, but you can never really know how “super group" collaborations are going to work out until they actually get together and do something. In the case of the power trio named after its members--bassist/stick player Tony Levin (Peter Gabriel, King Crimson, Stick Men), drummer/guitarist Marco Minnemann (Steven Wilson, The Aristocrats, ...

Tohpati: Tribal Dance

Read "Tribal Dance" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Nascent Indonesian guitarist, Tohpati strikes again with his third album and second trio date, greatly benefitting from the all- universe rhythm section of drummer Chad Wackerman and bassist Jimmy Haslip. Here, the artist coexists in that sacred space of high-octane power trios, assembled by progressive rock and jazz fusion guitar warlords, Joe Satriani, Greg Howe, Allan ...

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.
