Drummers as Bandleaders: An Alternative Top Ten Albums

Read "Drummers as Bandleaders: An Alternative Top Ten Albums" reviewed by Chris May

Drummers have been key members of every band which has changed the course of jazz history, from Max Roach with Charlie Parker to Elvin Jones with John Coltrane and onwards. Yet drummers have been the leaders of a surprisingly small proportion of landmark bands themselves. Chick Webb in the 1920s was the first of the few. ...

Friends & Neighbors: What's Next

Read "What's Next" reviewed by John Sharpe

With its fourth release, the Scandinavian quintet Friends & Neighbors, whose moniker references Ornette Coleman's album of near enough the same name, continues to find fertile soil in the American free jazz furrow. This time out the unchanged quintet of trumpeter Thomas Johansson, reedman André Roligheten, pianist Oscar Grönberg, bassist Jon Rune Strøm and percussionist Tollef ...

Friends & Neighbors: What’s Next?

Read "What’s Next?" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Giunto al suo quarto album (dal 2011), il quintetto norvegese Friends & Neighbors conferma la propria predilezione per un discorso corale, fortemente condiviso, pur aprendo ovviamente i dovuti spazi agli spunti del singolo. Nonostante la presenza del pianoforte (e se vogliamo del sax tenore al posto del contralto), il referente più palpabile appare ...

The Way Ahead: Bells, Ghosts and other Saints

Read "Bells, Ghosts and other Saints" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Perry Farrell, of the rock band Jane's Addiction, might have said/sung it best in 1988, on the track “Ted, Just Admit it..." when he whispered “Nothing's Shocking." Indeed, nothing is in the 21st century. Marcel Duchamp's painting “Nude Descending a Staircase, No. 2" (1912) is mostly admired today, and certainly not the trigger for a riot. ...

Gard Nilssen's Acoustic Unity: Live In Europe

Read "Live In Europe" reviewed by John Sharpe

Norwegian drummer Gard Nilssen formed Acoustic Unity back in 2014 to assuage his desire to compose and lead in a pure jazz setting. The initial get together with saxophonist André Roligheten and bassist Petter Eldh was so successful that it yielded the well-received Firehouse (Clean Feed, 2015). That achievement gives rise to an audacious gambit for ...

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.
