Rinascita a Chicago: le gemme dell’etichetta International Anthem

Read "Rinascita a Chicago: le gemme dell’etichetta International Anthem" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


Non è casuale che l'etichetta indipendente più innovativa nell'attuale panorama jazzistico (e non solo) sia nata e operi a Chicago. È noto infatti che la metropoli dell'Illinois è una delle capitali del jazz, avendo svolto un ruolo centrale in tutta la storia musicale afro-americana, talvolta paritetico con quello di New York. Nel 2014 ...

Damon Locks Black Monument Ensemble: Now

Read "Now" reviewed by Chris May


Chicago-based collective Black Monument Ensemble's sophomore album was recorded in September 2020 at the intersection of various existential crises, as seen from a US perspective: the threat of Trump winning the presidential election, by fair means or foul; the rising tide of fascist ideology; extrajudicial murders of, in particular but not exclusively, black Americans; a galloping ...

La vita e la musica di Makaya McCraven

Read "La vita e la musica di Makaya McCraven" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


Un ritratto di Makaya McCraven deve necessariamente considerare la mutazione antropologica che è avvenuta nell'ultima generazione di musicisti afroamericani che si spingono oltre la tradizionale sintesi tra jazz e generi popolari, usando creativamente la tecnologia sperimentata nell'ultimo trentennio dai DJ e produttori dell'hip-hop e della club culture. Le musiche di questo tumultuoso torrente ...

Green Man Interviews: Alabaster DePlume

Read "Green Man Interviews: Alabaster DePlume" reviewed by Martin Longley


Alabaster DePlume has a softness of saxophone tone. He also has a hardness of poetic intent. These divergent aspects of this multi-instrumentalist, London-living bon vivant can be heard on an impressive pair of recent releases. To Cy & Lee: Instrumentals Vol. 1 (International Anthem Recording Co.) finds DePlume at his most introspective, making music ...

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!
