Andreas Willers 7 of 8: The Goldman Variations

Read "The Goldman Variations" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Disco composito, felicemente irregolare, questo del sestetto (in un caso settetto) diretto dal sessantatreenne chitarrista tedesco Andreas Willers, con le stimmate dell'opera largamente meditata, fortemente intenzionale, nella concezione così come nel gesto che ne accompagna la messa in pratica. Partenza al fulmicotone nel breve “Case of Need" e poi momenti più riflessivi, quasi sfuggenti, ma sempre ...

Urs Leimgruber - Andreas Willers - Alvin Curran - Fabrizio Spera: Rome-Ing

Read "Rome-Ing" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

These venerable European improvisers tease and taunt the listeners' psyches with free-form minimalist sound-shaping designs and subdued inner-workings with gradual buildups and asynchronous movements, countered by explosive episodes of angst, tinted with creaky sub-motifs. With four lengthy works recorded live in Rome--hence, the album title—American pianist Alvin Curran and Swiss guitarist Andreas Willers incorporate electronics into ...

Andreas Willers / Urs Leimgruber: Pale White Shout

Read "Pale White Shout" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Guitarist Andreas Willers (Germany) and saxophonist Urs Leimgruber (Switzerland) are among Europe's most prominent improvisers and free-thinkers. On this outing their experimental metrics are quite rangy and focused, offering the antithesis to a madcap free-form blowing session. The duo alternates between controlled thematic buildups and subdued encounters with polytonal dialogues along with certain parts that elicit ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
