Jen Shyu: Song of the Silver Geese

Read "Song of the Silver Geese" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Viene spesso definita una vocalist sperimentale Jen Shyu, ma questo disco conferma che è molto di più. Dopo aver collaborato stabilmente con Steve Coleman e ancora con Anthony Braxton, Bobby Previte, Mark Dresser, Chris Potter e altri grandi, la cantante americana di genitori orientali (Taiwan e Timor Est) ha compiuto negli anni scorsi ricerche etnomusicologiche, recandosi ...

Alexander von Schlippenbach / Globe Unity Orchestra: Globe Unity - 50 Years

Read "Globe Unity - 50 Years" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Pianist Alexander von Schlippenbach's Globe Unity Orchestra (GUO) employs a similar head-scratching process to that utilized to make geuze, a much-treasured Belgian beer. Both elicit the “how did they do that?" question, and both seem to be a gift from Mother Nature. Schlippenbach brings together a choice assemblage of improvisers, like the ingredients of guesze (wheat ...

Charles Gayle/Giovani Barcella/Manolo Cabras: Live In Belgium

Read "Live In Belgium" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Picking up any recording by the saxophonist (sometimes pianist) Charles Gayle always reminds me of the quote by actress Bette Davis' from the the film All About Eve (1950). After downing her martini in one gulp, Davis walks away, turns, and announces “fasten your seatbelts, it's going to be a bumpy ride." Not bumpy as in ...

Quinsin Nachoff: Quinsin Nachoff's Ethereal Trio

Read "Quinsin Nachoff's Ethereal Trio" reviewed by Mark Corroto

It's interesting how modern jazz performers come to the music from very different circumstances than those of players of bygone eras. Instead of learning their craft in a bar or bagnio, they went to a conservatory to sharpen their chops. What they lack in perceived street-smarts (the outdated 1950s hipster delusion of jazzman as junkie), they ...

Read "The Boston Creative Jazz Scene 1970-1983" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Though jny: New York City remains first and foremost in everyone's mind as the “Jazz Capital of the World," aficionados know that many other cities in the US and abroad support significant and artistically important jazz communities. Boston looms large among the most important jazz cities, worldwide. The birthplace of Harry Carney, Roy Haynes, George Russell, ...

Tom Chang: Tongue and Groove

Read "Tongue and Groove" reviewed by Mark Corroto

When did the ultimate compliment for a jazz performance switch from “you swing, cat" to “you rock, dude"? Perhaps it happened after a generation of jazz artists raised on rock-n-roll found their way into improvisation and the latitudes of expression that jazz enable. Case in point is Tongue And Groove by guitarist Tom Chang.

Daniel Rosenboom: Fire Keeper

Read "Daniel Rosenboom: Fire Keeper" reviewed by Fiona Ord-Shrimpton

To say Daniel Rosenboom is no ordinary jazz trumpeter, is no exaggeration. His father, David Rosenboom is currently Dean, Richard Seaver Distinguished Chair in Music at the California Institute of the Arts (and has been at CalArts since 1990), and having a first trumpet teacher in the form of Wadada Leo Smith, where others may have ...

Saxophonist Lee Konitz turned 82 in October 2009 and he's still going as strong and as steady as ever. He recently played a birthday duet concert with pianist Harold Danko. While the set included the usual standards there were also a couple of surprises such as the Konitz original “Kary's Trance." Konitz and Danko have a ...

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.
