Anders Jormin: Poems for Orchestra

Read "Poems for Orchestra" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Losen Records' Winning Formula?

Read "Losen Records' Winning Formula?" reviewed by Friedrich Kunzmann

No formula at all. The only thing that remains constant from release to release on Norwegian label Losen Records is the fact, that no album will sound anything like the last. Home to young talents, such as the Icelandic pianist Ingi Bjarni Skúlason or the Russian saxophone virtuoso Masha Art, as well as old hands along ...

Anders Jormin: Poems For Orchestra

Read "Poems For Orchestra" reviewed by Friedrich Kunzmann

Bobo Stenson Trio: War Orphans

Read "War Orphans" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Manfred Eicher started ECM Records in 1969. Fifty years later, in 2019, with over 1500 releases to its name, the label continues to offer up compelling and unclassifiable music. And since the catalog is deep, and early-in-the-effort recordings have become harder to find, ECM periodically re-releases some of these gems, tagging them Touchstones. Early ...

Bobo Stenson: Contra la indecision

Read "Contra la indecision" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

Con Bobo Stenson siamo di fronte a uno dei volti caratteristici scaturiti dalla scena musicale del Nord Europa: quello segnato dalla raffinatezza timbrica, dallo scandaglio armonico, dalla ricerca melodica ricca di sfumature e digressioni che per certi versi fa riferimento a Bill Evans, ma ne anestetizza la forza dinamica, la nettezza tagliente, i bagliori di fulmine. ...

Ferenc Snetberger: Titok

Read "Titok" reviewed by Mario Calvitti

Dopo il disco dal vivo con cui ha esordito per la ECM, il chitarrista ungherese Ferenc Snetberger ritorna con un nuovo lavoro, questa volta in trio con il contrabbassista Anders Jormin e il batterista Joey Baron. La presenza di una sezione ritmica rende l'elemento jazzistico più marcato che nel precedente lavoro realizzato in solitudine, e fa ...

Alberto Pinton: la nostra parte del puzzle

Read "Alberto Pinton: la nostra parte del puzzle" reviewed by Marco Colonna

Scrivere di Alberto Pinton è una delle occasioni ghiotte che speravo di avere collaborando occasionalmente con la divulgazione “giornalistica" del jazz. Sapendo bene di non essere un tecnico della scrittura, ma un semplice veneratore del linguaggio, mi avvicino all'impresa con le cuffie, chiudendo il mondo fuori per la durata di un disco. Questa ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
