John Sharpe's Best Releases Of 2019

Read "John Sharpe's Best Releases Of 2019" reviewed by John Sharpe

Best to view the selections as a chance to pick up on something that you might otherwise have missed. As a listener I always look forward to the annual year end lists for precisely ...

Assif Tsahar: In Between the Tumbling a Stillness

Read "In Between the Tumbling a Stillness" reviewed by Mark Corroto


As the saying goes, In Between The Tumbling A Stillness, recorded in 2015 in Tel Aviv, “comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb." Saxophonist Assif Tsahar, who sticks to tenor throughout, opens “In Between" like a lion, if that lion were Albert Ayler. The 35-minute piece draws from the fire music of ...

Digital Primitives: Lipsomuch & Soul Searchin'

Read "Lipsomuch & Soul Searchin'" reviewed by Enrico Bettinello


Nella loro storia i Digital Primitives non hanno inciso molti dischi: questo doppio che raccoglie Lipsomuch & Soul Searchin' (tra l'altro contenente registrazioni del 2011) è solo il terzo della serie, ma in tutta onestà non ci sentiamo di dire che la scelta -sempre che di scelta si tratti -sia in qualche modo scriteriata, non solo ...

È quanto accade in questo bell'album, che riunisce una volta di più una coppia ritmica (chiamiamola così, per comodità) in sella ormai da una trentina d'anni ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
