New, Notable and Nearly Missed

Read "New, Notable and Nearly Missed" reviewed by Phil Barnes

One of the great pleasures of the holiday season is taking stock of the last 12 months, comparing notes with friends, investigating their recommendations and catching up with some of those releases that you never quite got round to. The falling cost of an independent release has meant that it is easier than ever for a ...

Geno Thackara's Best Releases of 2016

Read "Geno Thackara's Best Releases of 2016" reviewed by Geno Thackara

I always say it when recapping every year, and it's been truer than ever for me since I was fortunate to join All About Jazz at the start of 2016: there's always too much great stuff to take in. There are always too many albums we don't get around to during the year and too little ...

Mark Sullivan's Best Releases of 2016

Read "Mark Sullivan's Best Releases of 2016" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

So many reviews this year, in so many genres, that I've split them into two categories--"Jazz" and “Latin, World & Experimental"--in response to the feeling that I was trying to compare apples to oranges. They're presented in more or less chronological order, and the guiding principle was whether I had a clear memory of the recording ...

All About Jazz: Il tratto principale della mia musica. Andreas Loven: Come compositore, aspiro a creare delle melodie forti. E penso che la musica sia una chiara estensione della mia vita e dei due paesi in cui ho vissuto (Sud Africa e Norvegia). “Il calore e i ritmi polverosi dell'Africa, filtrati attraverso il freddo e ...

Andreas Loven: District 6

Read "District 6" reviewed by Geno Thackara

With a resumé that ranges from his native Norway down to South Africa, Andreas Loven lets you know from the start that he and his piano aren't going to fit under just one umbrella. In the simple context of an acoustic quartet (joined by sax, bass and drums), his beautifully ear-catching songwriting shows facets of all ...

Andreas Loven: District Six

Read "District Six" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Norwegian pianist/composer Andreas Loven has an especially compelling personal history. In his early twenties he left Oslo and an engineering career to move to South Africa to pursue jazz. Based in Cape Town, he has since performed extensively all over South Africa. This dual background gives his music a unique voice, one with both European and ...

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.
