From the 1995-2003 archive: This article first appeared at All About Jazz in March 2002. “Uberjam." Literally: “over all jam," translates to 'groove above all' on this true band effort, Scofield's latest recorded outing. You'll likely see this title described as anything from groove...techno...ambient...world...trance... to acid...and back again, but like MMW, it's unique in ...

Michael Blake: Red Hook Soul

Read "Red Hook Soul" reviewed by Maurizio Comandini


Il saxofonista canadese Michael Blake è ormai newyorkese fino in fondo all'anima ma se date retta ai profumi che si spargono nell'aria ascoltando questo ottimo Red Hook Soul si direbbe che, quando serve, almeno una parte della sua anima si trasferisca magicamente nelle vie di New Orleans, a caccia di quel groove solido, viscerale e fantasioso ...

By day Carpenter is an engineer, but there's also his radio shows, his acting career, a film he's working on about Albert Ayler, his band Brian Carpenter and the Confessions where he sings and composes, and ...

Read "Detroit Jazz Festival 2013" reviewed by C. Andrew Hovan

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!
