James Falzone: The Room Is

Read "The Room Is" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Legend has it that Jimmy Giuffre harbored a vehement distaste for the use of percussion in his ensembles. He found drummers distracting, irritating and clamorous. By the time he recorded the classic records 1961 (ECM, 1992) and Free Fall (Columbia, 1963) he had jettisoned drummers from his piano and bass trio. It must have driven marketing ...

James Falzone - The Renga Ensemble: The Room Is

Read "The Room Is" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Enterprising Chicago-based clarinetist James Falzone and a core band of fellow improvisers signal a modern day avant-jazz summit, inspired by the leader's affinity for Renga, which is a Japanese poetic tradition where 2 or more poets work in parallel to produce a new work. Falzone yields dividends by enlisting an ensemble, featuring prominent trailblazers of the ...

KLANG: Other Doors

Read "Other Doors" reviewed by Troy Collins

Though he has long admired the small combo recordings of legendary clarinetist Benny Goodman, Chicago-based clarinetist James Falzone never intended to record a tribute to the revered King of Swing. As a former student of modern composition at the New England Conservatory with a strong presence in Chicago's fertile free-improvisation scene, Falzone assumed his youthful gigs ...

Klang: Other Doors

Read "Other Doors" reviewed by Nic Jones

With Other Doors, Klang leader and clarinetist James Falzone has documented a body of music he worked on, after being invited to celebrate what would have been Benny Goodman's 100th birthday, at the Chicago Jazz Festival back in 2009. As he's a highly creative individual in his own right, he hasn't gone for any sterile Swing ...

Vox Arcana: Aerial Age

Read "Aerial Age" reviewed by John Sharpe

A list of influences including John Cage, Morton Feldman, Terry Riley, La Monte Young and Anthony Braxton is not the norm for a drummer-led ensemble, and gives notice that preconceptions are about to be challenged. These are the diverse inspirations Tim Daisy draws upon in Aerial Age, the sophomore offering from Vox Arcana, his vehicle exploring ...

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.
