Aardvark Jazz Orchestra: Faces Of Souls

Read "Faces Of Souls" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


Si avvicina al cinquantesimo anno di attività l'Aardvark Jazz Orchestra, fondata nel 1973 da Mark Harvey e ancora diretta dall'inossidabile trombettista, compositore e bandleader di Boston. In questo nuovo disco--il decimo pubblicato con la Leo Records e registrato live in varie occasioni--ritroviamo il consueto eclettismo della formazione, capace di passare da quadri in libera improvvisazione a ...

Dylan Jack Quartet: The Tale of the Twelve-Foot Man

Read "The Tale of the Twelve-Foot Man" reviewed by Troy Dostert


Drummer Dylan Jack has long been a fixture on the Boston jazz scene and, with assorted partnerships including fellow Bostonians Charlie Kohlhase, Jeb Bishop and Bill Lowe, he has kept very busy. But, of late, his most fruitful collaboration may be his recordings with guitarist Eric Hofbauer. The two released the first-rate Remains of Echoes in ...

Taylor Ho Bynum 9-tette: The Ambiguity Manifesto

Read "The Ambiguity Manifesto" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala


All'interno della generazione di musicisti che si sono formati con Anthony Braxton negli anni Novanta, studiando presso di lui alla Wesleyan University e collaborando ai suoi lavori di quel periodo, Taylor Ho Bynum spicca insieme a Mary Halvorson per versatilità dinamica e dovizia progettuale. Bynum, nel periodo in cui ha diretto la Tri-Centric Foundation, dal 2010-2018, ...

Taylor Ho Bynum 9-tette: The Ambiguity Manifesto

Read "The Ambiguity Manifesto" reviewed by Karl Ackermann


Taylor Ho Bynum's The Ambiguity Manifesto, with its oxymoronic title, is the third album in what the cornetist-composer calls an “accidental trilogy." Following his Firehouse 12 Records releases Navigation (Possible Abstracts XII & XIII) (2013) and Enter the Plus Tet (2016), Bynum recognized a form--however unconventional--both in the composition and performing of these large ensemble works. ...

The Aardvark Jazz Orchestra: Democratic Vistas

Read "Democratic Vistas" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


Il titolo della nona incisione dell' Aardvark Jazz Orchestra per la Leo (il 15mo disco in 46 anni di attività!) riprende quello di un saggio di Walt Whitman del 1871 che denunciava la corruzione politica e la decadenza morale dell'epoca tardo vittoriana. È l'annuncio di un disco “politico," che il leader della formazione ...

Taylor Ho Bynum: Enter the PlusTet

Read "Enter the PlusTet" reviewed by Troy Collins


Taylor Ho Bynum continues to delve into the endless possibilities of large ensemble writing on Enter the PlusTet, the debut of his newest band of the same name. Following in the footsteps of Navigation, his ambitious multi-format sextet and septet recording (Firehouse 12, 2012), this lean set finds the vanguard cornetist more than doubling the size ...

Taylor Ho Bynum: Enter the Plus Tet

Read "Enter the Plus Tet" reviewed by Karl Ackermann


Cornetist/composer Taylor Ho Bynum has proven to be a visionary composer, striking the difficult balance between free improvised and arranged music. While accomplished in any group setting, he has shown a particular gift for extended works in larger group situations as in two recent Firehouse 12 Records releases, his sextet Apparent Distance (2011) and sextet and ...

Nuove esplorazioni dell'Aardvark Jazz Orchestra

Read "Nuove esplorazioni dell'Aardvark Jazz Orchestra" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


I due ultimi album dell'Aardvark Jazz Orchestra confermano il versatile e poliedrico approccio del suo fondatore e leader, Mark Harvey. In una carriera di oltre quattro decenni la formazione bostoniana ha mostrato di operare con competenza e creatività in tutto l'arco dell'orchestrazione jazz: da rivisitazioni ellingtoniane a esplorazioni post-free, in sintesi tra momenti cameristici e libere ...

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!
