¡Golpe!, Josephine Davies & Ken Field

Read "¡Golpe!, Josephine Davies & Ken Field" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

Threesomes! If that's your thing, go for it, but in jazz there's no doubt of the dominance of trios as a common format. Four outstanding trios highlight this edition of OMJ: Portugal's explorative duo ¡Golpe! adds the outstanding bassist Masa Kamaguchi for its excellent new release, Totem, while two others maintain what's working: Bill Frisell with ...

Darrifourcq, Hermia & Ceccaldi... and Cheeseburgers

Read "Darrifourcq, Hermia & Ceccaldi... and Cheeseburgers" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

There are some very creative folks hanging about this week, headed by one of the more unique recordings of the year so far—Kaijū Eats Cheeseburgers—by the uncategorizable trio from France led by drummer/percussionist Sylvain Darrifourcq with saxophonist Manuel Hermia and cellist Valentin Ceccaldi. It's very different but very exciting stuff. Also new from Europe and more ...

Ambrose Akinmusire, Omri Zeigele, Adam Caine & More

Read "Ambrose Akinmusire, Omri Zeigele, Adam Caine & More" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

When a highly respected saxophonist like David Binney recommends a young up-and-coming musician, I tend to pay attention. Los Angeles trombonist Logan Kane and his Nonet live up to the tip on his new Nope, Science, one of the featured new releases hitting this week. Also of great interest are albums from the much-admired trumpeter Ambrose ...

Anna Hogberg Attack: lena

Read "lena" reviewed by John Sharpe

It is a well known gambit to start an album with one of its strongest tracks. But it must have been a difficult choice for Swedish band leader and saxophonist Anna Högberg when programming her group Attack's second release. That she chose “Pappa Kom Hem," which opens with a sustained stentorian bellow from tenor saxophonist Elin ...

Brodie West, Anna Högberg & Veryan Weston

Read "Brodie West, Anna Högberg & Veryan Weston" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

Contrasting alto saxophonists highlight this episode. Toronto's Brodie West leads his quintet through a quirky and edgy set of tunes from Clips, while Sweden's Anna Hogberg leads a very free blowing group called Attack, and that's exactly what she does on her recent Lena. Another saxophonist, American Seth Trachy, brought along his mentor, the very respected ...

Anna Högberg Attack: lena

Read "lena" reviewed by Samuel Stroup

There are moments of lena, the sophomore release from Swedish group Attack, which feel as though the ensemble is as much punk band as it is jazz sextet. Under the leadership of alto saxophonist Anna Högberg, the group plays loud and fast free jazz which is as stylish as it is raucous. Even the monochrome album ...

All-Female Bands Are a Riot!

Read "All-Female Bands Are a Riot!" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

As much as we favor a complete integration of the jazz sexes, this week we feature twenty-four bands or projects with not a single man in sight, actually in hearing. After all, how much jazz radio have you listened to (not on Mondo Jazz) with playlists made exclusively of all male bands? Here's a small contribution ...

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.
