TuneTown: There From Here

Read "There From Here" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Tracing the historic path of this particular trio type--saxophone, bass and drums, no chordal instrument--leads back to saxophonist Sonny Rollins' A Night At The Village Vanguard (Blue Note, 1958). The sound on that seminal recording is raw, rough around the edges, with the trio bumping through a bunch of familiar tunes, enjoying the freedom from chords. ...

Chris Monson: Seldom in the Well

Read "Seldom in the Well" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Canadian guitarist Chris Monson's debut album, Seldom in the Well, is seldom strident or uninteresting, thanks in large measure to Monson's fluent compositions and arrangements, an able rhythm section, and a talented front line consisting of trumpeter Kevin Turcotte and tenor saxophonist Kelly Jefferson. On the other hand, the studio session seldom catches fire, as its ...

Chris Monson: Seldom In The Wells

Artie Roth: Parallels

Read "Parallels" reviewed by Budd Kopman

Parallels, a collection of original compositions by bassist/leader/arranger Artie Roth, is another entry from the sizzling Canadian jazz scene. The quintet's front line of John MacLeod (flugelhorn) and Kelly Jefferson (tenor and soprano saxophones) receives support from the seemingly ubiquitous David Braid (piano), familiar from Set In Stone, Vivid, Beginnings and William Carn's Other Stories. Musicians ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
