The Golden Age Of Steam: Tomato Brain

Read "Tomato Brain" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay


It's been a while. The Golden Age Of Steam released debut album Raspberry Tongue (Babel Records) in 2009, the follow-up, Welcome To Bat Country (Basho Records), in 2012. Then they laid low until 2020 and the appearance of album number three, Tomato Brain. It's been worth the wait. The album's multi-layered, six-part, “Loftopus" is an atmospheric ...

Read "557799" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay


557799 is the fifth album from Serbian jazz fusion quartet EYOT since its debut, Horizon, was released in 2011. It follows on from 2017's Innate (produced by Steve Albini in Chicago) and builds on that album's mix of prog, hard rock and jazz.

Bilge Gunaydin: Daydreams

Read "Daydreams" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay


Turkish pianist, keyboard player, composer and arranger Bilge Günaydin showcases her talents on Daydreams, her debut release. It's an impressive first outing for the young musician—stylistically wide-ranging, moving from laid-back melody to drama and mystery, and beautifully performed by the musicians. “Inception" is a relaxed, melodic album opener—smooth without being bland, immediately engaging and ...

Andrew McCormack: Solo

Read "Solo" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay


A solo album from Andrew McCormack—a musician best-known as part of Kyle Eastwood's band and, in the three years prior to this recording, as leader of the “prog-rock math-jazz project" (his words) Graviton—was always going to be an intriguing project. Would it lean towards the small-band, big sound of the Eastwood group, or would it be ...

Dave Milligan: Momento

Read "Momento" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay


Momento is a piano trio album, its instrumental line-up of piano, bass and drums being common to many jazz recordings over the decades. But Dave Milligan and his compatriots--bassist Danilo Gallo and drummer U. T. Gandhi--have produced a distinctive and beautiful set of tunes which set this particular piano trio apart from its peers. The explanation ...

Anders Bast & The Bast'ards: Through Space & Time

Read "Through Space & Time" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay


Calling your band The Bast'ards may be an obvious move if your surname is Bast, even if it might cost a few namechecks in some sectors of the media (the apostrophe softens the impact in print, but not over the airways). It's a name that suggests a certain aggressive edge, a punk-meets-jazz approach to music, a ...

World Sanguine Report: Skeleton Blush

Read "Skeleton Blush" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay


Don't be fooled by the appearance of “sanguine" in the band name. World Sanguine Report is not a band given to gentle optimism, or relaxed acceptance of whatever situation it's in. Look instead to the meaning of the word in heraldic terms—blood red. Skeleton Blush is filled with hard-edged, powerful and uncompromising songs, an album that ...

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!
