Gary Husband: A Meeting of Spirits: Interpretations of the Music of John McLaughlin

Read "A Meeting of Spirits: Interpretations of the Music of John McLaughlin" reviewed by John Kelman

As a followup to his remarkable The Things I See: Interpretations of the Music of Allan Holdsworth (Angel Air, 2001), veteran drummer/keyboardist Gary Husband tackles another guitar legend on A Meeting of Spirits. Both records are wonderful solo piano tributes to their sources' distinctive compositional skills and harmonic innovations. But Husband's latest effort takes the concept ...

Jason Smith: Think Like This

Read "Think Like This" reviewed by John Kelman

Sometimes you have to get beyond the biases suggested by an artist's past experience. Drummer Jason Smith has been a busy west coast session player on soundtracks and pop records by artists like Enrique Iglesias. Not exactly a pedigree bound to generate excitement on the jazz front. Still, he's also worked with Mike Keneally, the guitarist ...

Allan Holdsworth: Against the Clock: The Best of Allan Holdsworth

Read "Against the Clock: The Best of Allan Holdsworth" reviewed by John Kelman

It's rare enough to find artists who have developed a voice so unique that they can be recognized within the space of a few notes. Rarer still are those who have evolved such a distinctive vernacular that their music can be identified without them personally playing a single note. Scarcer still are those who can work ...

Riptyde: Sonic Undertow

Read "Sonic Undertow" reviewed by John Kelman

Sonic Undertow is the culmination of nearly ten years of occasional studio finagling by multi-instrumentalist Chris Hoard, also one half of the team that runs the fledgling Alternity Records, which made its mark last year with its first release, Then! , an archival live release from '90 by guitar phenom Allan Holdsworth. Upon reading the liner ...

Allan Holdsworth Group: Then!

Read "Then!" reviewed by John Kelman

Recorded twelve years before his latest release, the similarly-live All Night Wrong , and at the same location in Tokyo, guitarist Allan Holdsworth demonstrates that while he's come a long way in the ensuing years, there's absolutely no reason not to look back at archival material such as this and stand in awe of a stylist ...

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.
