John Scofield: One For Swallow

Read "John Scofield: One For Swallow" reviewed by Ian Patterson

From time to time in his storied career John Scofield will take a look over his shoulder and re-examine some of the music that has fed into his own, personal brand of jazz. The influences are many, for no matter the context that Scofield engineers, his distinctive sound always carries something of the blues, a little ...

The Complete Jan Akkerman: Focusing on a Life's Work

Read "The Complete Jan Akkerman: Focusing on a Life's Work" reviewed by John Kelman

He may be largely regarded as the most influential guitarist to emerge from the Netherlands, a country that, bordering on the North Sea, is roughly one-quarter the physical size of England and, with a current number of about seventeen million, has just one-third the population of the UK's largest country. Still, despite garnering major in-country recognition, ...

Led Zeppelin: Physical Graffiti (Deluxe Edition)

Read "Led Zeppelin: Physical Graffiti (Deluxe Edition)" reviewed by John Kelman

After nearly five years that saw the group release five albums--from 1969's earth-shattering eponymous debut to 1973's less consistent Houses of the Holy (all on Atlantic Records)--and incessant touring that saw the group break numerous attendance records and reach the top of the charts worldwide, Led Zeppelin finally took a much-needed break in 1974. Still, while ...

Led Zeppelin Remastered: The Second Batch (IV & Houses of the Holy)

Read "Led Zeppelin Remastered: The Second Batch (IV & Houses of the Holy)" reviewed by John Kelman

I, II, III | IV, Houses of the Holy Following the 1-2-3 punch of its first three albums--first released between January 1969 and October 1970 and reissued in June, 2014 as the first batch of a year-long series of overdue (and expanded) remasters of its entire nine-album catalog--Led Zeppelin continued on an upward trajectory, ...

Led Zeppelin Remastered: The First Batch (I, II & III)

Read "Led Zeppelin Remastered: The First Batch (I, II & III)" reviewed by John Kelman

I, II, III | IV, Houses of the Holy For a time, Led Zeppelin was one of the biggest--if not the biggest--bands in the world, eclipsing the Rolling Stones, the Who...even the Beatles. Born out of the ashes of the Yardbirds--even operating, very briefly, under the moniker the New Yardbirds, Led Zeppelin came to ...

Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, Keith Jarrett, McCoy Tyner: Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, Keith Jarrett, McCoy Tyner

Read "Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, Keith Jarrett, McCoy Tyner" reviewed by Lawrence Peryer

Atlantic Records issued this collection 1976, featuring two tracks each from four of the most important pianists in the post-bop era. Excepting one piece, each pianist is represented here in trio format. The Keith Jarrett and Chick Corea offerings are from their own 1966 sessions as leaders. Jarrett contributes two original compositions and ...

Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young: 4 Way Street

Read "Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young: 4 Way Street" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

One thing the blues ain't... is funny Touted as one of the worst live albums of all time by Dave Marsh's Book of Rock Lists, Four Way Street may be anything but that. Sure, it's sloppy, poorly recorded and a bit self-indulgent, but hey, it was 1970 and it does not compare with the ...

J. Geils Band: Full House

Read "J. Geils Band: Full House" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Blow your face out, baby... Once, when I was teaching Chemical Quantitative Analysis to pharmacy students, one of my charges approached me before a test and asked, “Can you tell me all I need to know to pass this quant quiz?" The exam was the Wednesday before Thanksgiving and my class was wanting ...

John Coltrane: Ole

Read "Ole" reviewed by John Ballon

John Coltrane never stopped wondering what he wanted from music, and never stopped pushing the boundaries. Trane genuinely strove to be saintly in his devotion to the divine, creating a body of deeply spiritual music that has come to be regarded as holy by his many devotees. His musical legacy was officially consecrated in 1971, when ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
