Albert Ayler Quintet: 1966: Berlin, Lörrach, Paris & Stockholm. Revisited

Read "1966: Berlin, Lörrach, Paris & Stockholm. Revisited" reviewed by Mark Corroto


It may sound odd to describe the music that Albert Ayler's quintet performs here as the musical equivalent of comfort food, but these sounds can be associated with security and nostalgia. They are a reminder of the spark ignited by this tenor saxophonist from Cleveland. Ayler, maybe more than any artist of his day, paved the ...

Impulse! Records: An Alternative Top 20 Zeitgeist Seizing Albums

Read "Impulse! Records: An Alternative Top 20 Zeitgeist Seizing Albums" reviewed by Chris May


There can be little argument that a jazz label ever captured a zeitgeist more completely than Impulse! did during its original 1960s incarnation. In the US, the fight back against white racism was cresting, opposition to the Vietnam war was growing, outrage over the assassinations of figures of hope such as President Kennedy, Martin Luther King ...

Pat Metheny, Joe Henderson & Charles Mingus

Read "Pat Metheny, Joe Henderson & Charles Mingus" reviewed by Joe Dimino


Modern day jazz cat James Francies starts the 586th Episode of Neon Jazz with pure gusto on a song off his CD Flight. From there, we follow a trail of good with Pat Metheny, Beaver Harris and Moppa Elliot. We put a focus on both Jason Stein and Harry Vetro during the hour. Then, we pay ...

Dave Burrell: The Crave

Read "The Crave" reviewed by John Sharpe


A leading free jazz pianist playing the music of Jelly Roll Morton? It's not as far-fetched as you might think. Morton has attracted a number of interpreters from the supposedly extreme end of the spectrum, from Sun Ra of course, first issued on Live At The Gibus (Atlantic, 1975), to Chicago trio Air on Air Lore ...

Ron Carter: Always at the Center of the Action

Read "Ron Carter: Always at the Center of the Action" reviewed by Victor L. Schermer


Great jazz bassists can always be identified by the fact that you really listen to them! A good jazz bassist keeps good time and gets the chords right, but a great bassist, going as far back as Jimmy Blanton, Scott LaFaro, Charlie Haden, or Jimmy Garrison, catches your ear because you're surprised and moved by what ...

Arancio, nero e nostalgia: tempo di ristampe in casa Impulse!

Read "Arancio, nero e nostalgia: tempo di ristampe in casa Impulse!" reviewed by Luca Canini


Piovono ristampe in casa Impulse!. Un diluvio benedetto a tinte arancionere che riporta sugli scaffali dei negozi classicissimi e rarità a prezzi stracciati. Non il massimo l'operazione dal punto di vista filologico: grafica discutibile, copertine originali incrociate grossolanamente, rimasterizzazione discreta ma non eccelsa, note riprodotte in miniatura e in alcuni casi praticamente illeggibili; ma il rapporto ...

Dave Burrell: Pianist Navigating the Windward Passages

Read "Dave Burrell: Pianist Navigating the Windward Passages" reviewed by Victor L. Schermer


Dave Burrell is a master pianist and composer who encountered the avant-garde in the 1960s and has been following his own independent path ever since. He combines classical and jazz elements that are both “inside" and “outside" the mainstream. The title of a poem by J.V. Cunningham, “The Metaphysical Amorist" characterizes much of his playing, which ...

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!
