Andrew D'Angelo

Andrew D'Angelo's charismatic presence and iconoclastic musical ambition have been well-established over the course of his twenty year plus career and his key roles in bands like Human Feel, the Matt Wilson Quartet and Tyft. His dedication to pushing his limits and his willingness to delve into new musical areas have been powerful inspirations to his peers and to a new generation of improvisers. His forceful tone and aggressive improvisational style have made him one of the most influential alto saxophonists of his time. Andrew D'Angelo was raised in Seattle, where he forged powerful musical and personal relationships with fellow young musicians Chris Speed and Jim Black before moving to New York City in 1986

Human Feel: Speak To It

Read "Human Feel: Speak To It" reviewed by Mark Werlin


What is chamber jazz? The emergence of chamber jazz as a genre can be traced to the innovative sextet sides recorded in the mid-1930s by bandleader John Kirby, and to the trio and small-ensemble post-war recordings of Benny Goodman. By the late 1940s, the term 'chamber jazz' was widely used in industry publications such ...

Size Matters: (Mostly New) Jazz for Big Bands and Orchestras, Part 4

Read "Size Matters: (Mostly New) Jazz for Big Bands and Orchestras, Part 4" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu


In the early days of jazz, “Orchestra" was used to identify bands larger than a septet. Nowadays, jazz orchestras and big bands are much larger than that, like those we feature in our final installment of our mini-series dedicated to (mostly new and upcoming) releases by big bands and orchestras which can be found at the ...

Pino Palladino and Blake Mills: Notes with Attachments

Read "Notes with Attachments" reviewed by Chris May


Do not be put off by the cover. It might suggest inaccessible, up itself, bone-dry cerebralism, but the reality is contrariwise. Around a third of the music is vaguely reminiscent, in spirit if not in execution, of the 1949-1950 Birth Of The Cool sessions conducted by Miles Davis with arrangers Gil Evans, John Lewis, Gerry Mulligan ...

Chris May’s Best Releases Of 2020

Read "Chris May’s Best Releases Of 2020" reviewed by Chris May


Not the best year for live gigs in London, but Dele Sosimi's Afrobeat Orchestra just made it under the wire, lighting up the Jazz Cafe in late January. Rather like Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers, Sosimi's band has form as an incubator of young talent. A recent star in the making was trumpeter Ife Ogunjobi, who has ...

Read "Billy Mohler, Mat Walerian, Larry Ochs, Aram Shelton, Alister Spence and More" reviewed by Maurice Hogue


I was so taken by bassist Billy Mohler's playing with the Dan Rosenboom Quartet which opens this show, I had to go find Mohler's music. He's featured in the third hour. Also featured are a bunch of great new releases: multi-reedist Mat Walerian with a superb band of Matthew Shipp, William Parker and Hamid Drake, saxophonists ...

Andrew D’Angelo’s DNA Orchestra, Barrage & Luis Nubiola

Read "Andrew D’Angelo’s DNA Orchestra, Barrage & Luis Nubiola" reviewed by Maurice Hogue


The size of a group means nothing. There's as much fantastic music created by a trio as there is by a big band. This episode of OMJ attempts to prove that with sparkling new music from trios (Jason Robinson, Bruno Räberg & Bob Weiner -a definite must on my faves of 2020 list, Cuban/Polish saxophonist Luis ...
