Louis Sclavis / Dominique Pifarély / Vincent Courtois: Asian Fields Variations

Read "Asian Fields Variations" reviewed by John Kelman

Few artists on the ECM roster reinvent themselves as regularly--and with such consistent success--as Louis Sclavis. While it is true that the French clarinetist (and occasional soprano/baritone saxophonist) often draws (and re-draws) from a gradually expanding pool of musicians, there are few label mates who have released as many albums as Sclavis, where the lineups literally ...

Read "Now's the time III: The best in contemporary jazz from France and [tax haven] Luxembourg" reviewed by John Ephland

Every. One. Of. These. Tracks. Is. A. Keeper. To be swept up in a fervor when listening to music (always an unexpected pleasure) and finding it next to impossible not to write about the experience--during as well as after--is the dream all music journalists crave and celebrate every time they find themselves returning to that zone. ...

Alain Vankehove: Beyond Mountains

Read "Beyond Mountains" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Già sodale dei vari Christophe Marguet e Marc Ducret, fra gli altri, nonché membro dell'ONJ edizione-Damiani, Vankenhove, parigino il cui cognome rivela origini evidentemente più nordiche, è qui alla testa di un quartetto del tutto funzionale a un'idea musicale intrisa di umori multiprovenienti, per un album denso (meno di 40') in cui non è dato smarrirsi ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
