Peter Evans / Barry Guy: Syllogistic Moments

Read "Syllogistic Moments" reviewed by John Sharpe

From the first few seconds of the opening “Red Green" onwards, this live recording from trumpeter Peter Evans and bassist Barry Guy is a feat of death defying bravura. The two are among the most utterly distinctive practitioners on their instruments and they create a fast evolving kaleidoscope of preposterous sounds. Evans named his record label ...

Barry Guy New Orchestra: Oort-Entropy

Read "Oort-Entropy" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Seminal free jazz bassist Barry Guy is responsible for manning some of the finest albums in this rather opaque genre. Aside from his longtime affiliations with saxophonist Evan Parker and drummer Paul Lytton--both of whom are featured here--the bassist is no stranger to leading exploratory ensembles. Guy's small orchestra equates to a multinational tentet. ...

Read "Oort-Entropy" reviewed by Derek Taylor

As a general rule of thumb, the bigger the band, the larger the role of logistics and finances in dictating its survival. In response to just such variables, the London Jazz Composer's Orchestra, one of the most venerable and prolific among large-scale European improvising outfits, underwent a necessary and indefinite hiatus back in 1998.

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.
