Hvalfugl: Øjeblikke Vi Husker

Read "Øjeblikke Vi Husker" reviewed by Anthony Shaw

There's no denying that this Danish trio plays a very mellow mood. Based around the interplay of Jeppe Lavsen's mildly electrified, echoing guitar and Jonathan Fjord Bredholt's piano, this album continues the style that Hvalfugl captured on earlier albums. But while the melodies move gently forward there are small surprises lurking along the way. These ...

Sylvain Rifflet: Troubadours

Read "Troubadours" reviewed by Anthony Shaw

Sylvain Rifflet has been playing adventurous, somewhat rock-related jazz for since around 2000, and for much of the time has done so alongside a trumpeter. His emergence on the international scene in the first decade of this century was with the French quintet Rockingchair, where his co-leader was contemporary French trumpeter, Arielle Besson. They were awarded ...

Gong gave me jazz ears - an investigation into the recent evolution of Gong

Read "Gong gave me jazz ears - an investigation into the recent evolution of Gong" reviewed by Anthony Shaw

Introducing the band Gong, or as they are frequently known on the internet the Gong-band, is somewhat similar to introducing a primary color to a blind person. The more words used, the less clear the idea. Suffice it to say that a band which has existed for over 50 years, has included well over 50 musicians ...

Mikko Innanen: Autonomus I - XXX

Read "Autonomus I - XXX" reviewed by Anthony Shaw

Mikko Innanen has been a prolific saxophonist on the Finnish scene for so long that one can no longer refer to him as any sort of new boy in town. But with the passing of the years there have been changes of focus and style, and the release of the album Autonomus sees a new experimental ...

We Jazz Festival Finland & Estonia 7th We Jazz Festival Helsinki, Tampere & Tallinn December 1-8, 2019 Two things are always certain about the We Jazz Festival in Finland, and neither involve death or money.

Barlast: Svanvik

Read "Svanvik" reviewed by Anthony Shaw

This second album from Barlast, a self-proclaimed folk-jazz quartet from Helsinki, continues much in the vein of their first, Ihantalo released in 2017. Where Ihantalo featured only tunes from bassist Philip Holm, the current album includes five tunes written by the whole band, as well as five more of Holm's, and is sonically more experimental.

Timo Lassy and Teppo Mäkynen: Timo Lassy and Teppo Mäkynen

Read "Timo Lassy and Teppo Mäkynen" reviewed by Anthony Shaw

Timo Lassy and Teppo Mäkynen have been at the heart of the Helsinki jazz scene for over two decades, seeing international success with the Five Corners Quintet as well as leading several accomplished cutting-edge bands. This is something very different, an eponymously titled album where two established figures throw caution to the wind and cut loose ...

Gong at the Assembly Rooms Islington

Read "Gong at the Assembly Rooms Islington" reviewed by Anthony Shaw

Gong, supporting Steve Hillage Assembly Rooms Islington London, UK November 16, 2019 We all know that it's never literally the same river twice, but with a band it's a little more complicated. A name can mean everything when it comes to sales and marketing, so even when the ...

Rantajatsit Jazz onthe Beach Raahe, Finland July 25-27, 2019 Raahe is a small town on the north west coast of Finland renowned if anything for the antiquity of its planning, much of which survives despite a fire in 1810 and an attack by the British navy in 1855 when the ...

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.
