Ambrose Akinmusire

Born:

Ambrose's conceptual extension into a new musical language is never to the exclusion of beauty. As one who listens intently, he values the fertility of a pause, of communication, of tension. Ambrose began conceptualizing early as a musician, theorizing and experimenting as a catalyst for development. He seeks other genres of music to analyze and expose, drawing inspiration from such musicians as Bjork and Chopin. Ambrose’s music restructures accepted notions of jazz in a way that reflects his ability to recognize nuances, multiplicities, and patterns. First playing piano at the age of three, his familiarity with music began long before putting his mouth to a trumpet

Read "MP85" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

Anche se, naturalmente, i suoi tour di concerti non sono più molto frequenti sulla scena internazionale, questo MP85 è eloquente nella conferma che il carattere, la vitalità creativa, la sostanza musicale ...

Hermon Mehari: gli album che sto ascoltando

Read "Hermon Mehari: gli album che sto ascoltando" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero


1. Logan Richardson, Afrofuturism, (Whirlwind Recordings, 2021). Forse il musicista che mi ha ispirato di più ha da poco pubblicato un disco eclettico. Mi piace il fatto che non abbia paura di abbracciare i suoni moderni e si senta libero di esprimersi come vuole. 2. Charles Mingus, Mingus Ah Um, (Columbia Records, ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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!
