Read "Smash Hits" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Metropole Orkest: Perfect Vision - The Esquivel Sound

Read "Perfect Vision - The Esquivel Sound" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Gli universi paralleli esistono, perlomeno in musica. Negli anni dal 1958 al 1962 il jazz statunitense ha vissuto una fase innovativa così ricca e variegata da assorbire totalmente gli appassionati (fino a oggi), portandoli a tralasciare quanto coesisteva nel vicino universo della pop music. In quegli anni l'industria discografica aveva scoperto il potenziale suggestivo ...


AA.VV.: Raymond Scott Rewired

Read "Raymond Scott Rewired" reviewed by Enrico Bettinello

Risale ai primi anni Novanta, grazie al fantastico lavoro di Irwin Chusid (autorità indiscussa nell'ambito della obscure & weird music) la “riscoperta" della musica di Raymond Scott, tra le figure più originali, oblique e sotterraneamente influenti del Novecento. Se già lo conoscete non starò qui a ribadire le tante anime della sua fantastica carriera. ...

Read "Tabloid Suite" reviewed by Jack Bowers

The Metropole Orchestra: The Chesterfield Arrangements / Kodachrome

Read "The Chesterfield Arrangements / Kodachrome" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Raymond Scott's is a name I'd never associated with Jazz. After hearing these recent recordings by the Netherlands Metropole Orchestra of Scott's music from the mid-'30s through the late '50s, it still isn't. Lovely music, though, light years ahead of much of what is being unloaded on the public these days. Disc 1, The Chesterfield Arrangements, ...

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.
