Skyjack: The Hunter

Read "The Hunter" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

This second album from South African-Swiss cooperative Skyjack strikes a smart balance between ideation and instinct. Feedback loops fire the imagination of the album's five participants, with input and output acting and reacting to one another in real time. As on the band's eponymous debut, independence and interdependence each play a role in these romping games. ...

Read "CPACQVER" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Quello che colpisce in questo insolito trio batteria/basso/trombone è l'estrema pertinenza e naturalezza con le quali concentra in sessanta minuti di registrazione una grande varietà espressiva dando la netta sensazione di non perdere mai di vista l'unitarietà del discorso musicale. I tre straordinari musicisti sono in grado di creare suoni orchestrali, come arditi frammenti timbrici, respiri ...

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.
