Hedvig Mollestad: Ekhidna

Read "Ekhidna" reviewed by Gareth Thompson

In 2003, the English writer John Murray published his Booker Prize-listed novel Jazz Etc. It narrated the life and times of a female guitarist, the improbably named Fanny Golightly, from working class Cumbria. One observer in the story describes Golightly's playing thus: “I suppose jazz is the only name for it. It was as delirious as ...

Supersonic 2018

Read "Supersonic 2018" reviewed by Martin Longley

Supersonic Birmingham, England June 22-24, 2018 Running since 2003, the Supersonic festival specialises in musics that press firmly against the limits of cranial perception, whether expanding from deep inside our inner liquids, or fracturing in unexpectedly like a bolt of intrusive alien contaminate. Supersonic sounds can be minimalist and meditational, ...

Leonardo Pavkovic: Nothing is Ordinary

Read "Leonardo Pavkovic: Nothing is Ordinary" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

More than any other person, Leonardo Pavkovic has made me write some crazy shit. Pavkovic is the primal force behind the joyously eclectic MoonJune Records, which he established in 2001. “Established" may not be the right word: “I am truly an unusual and rules breaking call-it-record-company with a 'label' identity despite the fact that ...

Green Man 2017

Read "Green Man 2017" reviewed by Martin Longley

Green Man Glanusk Park Brecon Beacons Wales August 17-20, 2017 Like the now deceased Big Chill festival, the Green Man weekender languishes in an ideal location, set within the rolling Brecon Beacons in south Wales, verdant and misty, its main Mountain Stage stretching across a natural ...

Singles: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack - Deluxe Edition

Read "Singles: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack - Deluxe Edition" reviewed by Doug Collette

Close on the heels of Pearl Jam's explosive induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, it's obviously no coincidence an expanded twenty-fifth anniversary edition appears of the soundtrack to Singles, the (third) film by Cameron Crowe, focused on the ascendant grunge scene of the early 1990s in Seattle. Available in super deluxe ...

Free Nelson Mandoomjazz: The Organ Grinder

Read "The Organ Grinder" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

Search as far and wide as you like but you won't find any one band that sounds like Edinburgh, Scotland's Free Nelson Mandoomjazz. You CAN find about eight, though: Their sprawling, monstrous “doomjazz" combines harmonic and rhythmic streams from various free jazz and heavy metal schools, including and especially Black Sabbath, Albert Ayler, Electric Wizard, Sonny ...

Brownout: Brownout Presents Brown Sabbath II

Read "Brownout Presents Brown Sabbath II" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

Brownout bandleader and guitarist Adrian Quesada listened to a lot of different music, including blood-curdling heavy metal monsters Black Sabbath, while growing up in South Texas. Even while creating original music more reflective of their Mexican and American funk, blues and rock roots, he and his bandmates never lost their taste for Britain's Sabbath. Their first ...

The Seth Yacovone Band: Shovel Down

Read "Shovel Down" reviewed by Doug Collette

Vintage hard rock with heavy metal overtones that should appeal as much to fans of the original Gov't Mule as those of early Black Sabbath, the initial studio album by The Seth Yacovone Band 2.0., Shovel Down is the initial and fairly lofty plateau in a judicious plan by the bandleader to remain as independent as ...

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.
