Andrew McCormack

Internationally acclaimed pianist and composer Andrew McCormack consistently challenges himself to explore new and very different musical styles as an artist. Whether appearing with Kyle Eastwood or Jamie Cullum, with a symphony orchestra or as a solo pianist, at outdoor festivals or an intimate club, you can always expect the highest level of performance. With Andrew’s latest project, Graviton, he has assembled an A-List of the most sought-after musicians in the modern jazz world, all of whom bring something special to the mix. ESKA, Mercury prize nominee, joins the band on vocals. Sons of Kemet’s sax sensation Shabaka Hutchings and Jacob Collier’s electric bass supremo Robin Mullarkey are a stellar addition

Andrew McCormack: Solo

Read "Solo" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

A solo album from Andrew McCormack—a musician best-known as part of Kyle Eastwood's band and, in the three years prior to this recording, as leader of the “prog-rock math-jazz project" (his words) Graviton—was always going to be an intriguing project. Would it lean towards the small-band, big sound of the Eastwood group, or would it be ...

Lift Every Voice And Sing: Twenty #BlackLives Albums That Matter

Read "Lift Every Voice And Sing: Twenty #BlackLives Albums That Matter" reviewed by Chris May

Jazz has been inextricably linked with social and political protest since at least the late 1930s, when Billie Holiday made famous the leftist songwriter and poet Abel Meeropol's “Strange Fruit." The song, which has a power to move that is undiminished by familiarity, likens the bodies of lynched African Americans to fruit hanging in trees.

Read "Graviton: The Calling" reviewed by Roger Farbey

Following in the wake of Andrew McCormack's Graviton (Jazz Village, 2017) comes Graviton: The Calling.

Kyle Eastwood: In Transit

Read "In Transit" reviewed by Kris Perdew

Now that he is into his late 40's and has released nine albums in his 19 years as leader, no lingering doubt can remain that bassist and composer Kyle Eastwood has stepped out of the formidable shadow of his father. The latest evidence is presented here in the form of Eastwood's latest release, In Transit.

Andrew McCormack: Graviton

Read "Graviton" reviewed by Roger Farbey

Graviton's nearest comparison might well be Chick Corea's early albums Return To Forever and Light As A Feather with Flora Purim. But this is much more effusive and busier with stop/start melodies as heard on “Breathe" and the title track. Wordless vocals swoop over insistent piano runs and saxophone incursions courtesy of London-born singer Eska (Eska ...

Read "Jazz Found Alive! Man In Blue Suede Shoes Wanted For Questioning." reviewed by Duncan Heining

Colin Towns' Mask Orchestra LSO St. Lukes London October 17, 2015 The gap between the music that Colin Towns makes and much that currently passes for jazz grew even wider last weekend.

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.
