Brainkiller: Colourless Green Superheroes

Read "Colourless Green Superheroes" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Al secondo album dopo il pirotecnico debutto di The Infiltration, il trio denominato Brainkiller colpisce ancora (in senso figurato, s'intende...) licenziando un album che definisce ulteriormente la loro schizofrenica e multicolore visione musicale. Colourless Green Superheroes, è un frullatore dove tutto è concesso, dove gli ingredienti base--il gusto per l'improvvisazione del jazz, l'energia epidermica e immediata ...

From August 4 – 8, 2014, at the elegantly rustic Full Moon Resort in the Catskill Forest Preserve (about 30 miles west of Woodstock, N.Y.), enthusiasts and guitarists of all skill ...

Brainkiller: The Infiltration

Read "The Infiltration" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Se come diceva Zappa il jazz non è morto ma ha solo un buffo o strano odore, gli aromi, o meglio i profumi, che emanano da The Infiltration sono davvero unici. E non poteva essere diversamente visto che ci troviamo di fronte a un trio formato da trombone, tastiere elettriche, percussioni varie ed elettronica. Qui i ...

Brian Allen / Tony Malaby / Tom Rainey: Synapse

Read "Synapse" reviewed by Budd Kopman

Because the eight tracks on this disc are free improvisations, Synapse officially qualifies as “difficult" music. The structure, density, dynamics and overall timbre evolve as each track plays, and as such takes a bit more closer listening, even repeated listenings, to begin to follow what these three wonderful musicians are doing. The album ...


Brian Allen with Tony Malaby and Tom Rainey: Synapse

Read "Synapse" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Trombonist/composer Brian Allen aligns himself with the creme de la creme of New York City jazz musicians on this bass-less trio date. Synapse is a cleverly articulated effort; Allen nimbly handles the lower (bass line) register while toggling between his leadership and soloing duties. During nip and tuck dialogues, the band navigates an abundance of disparate ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
