This week we put together an energy-packed playlist to boost us towards the finish line of the winter season. At the heart of the show is electric jazz, from a rather guitar-centric set of albums. They oscillate between the shredding power of Hedvig Mollestad or Marbin, and the legacy of the New York Downtown scene that ...

Pino Palladino and Blake Mills: Notes with Attachments

Read "Notes with Attachments" reviewed by Chris May


Do not be put off by the cover. It might suggest inaccessible, up itself, bone-dry cerebralism, but the reality is contrariwise. Around a third of the music is vaguely reminiscent, in spirit if not in execution, of the 1949-1950 Birth Of The Cool sessions conducted by Miles Davis with arrangers Gil Evans, John Lewis, Gerry Mulligan ...

Pino Palladino: Eclettismo al Servizio della Musica

Read "Pino Palladino: Eclettismo al Servizio della Musica" reviewed by Serena Antinucci


Capita raramente di ascoltare un disco che sprigiona endorfine così benefiche, che ci concede la possibilità di separarci momentaneamente dalla realtà, spingendoci fino al nucleo generativo della musica stessa. Proprio lì dove la composizione prende forma in uno spazio neutro, senza confini, entriamo nel sistema musicale di Notes With Attachments del bassista Pino Palladino e del ...

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!
