Cyrus Nabipoor: Live At The Marigny Opera House

Read "Live At The Marigny Opera House" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic


Whatever Mother Nature or callous venture bankers do to the battered city of New Orleans, its music keeeps getting passed from legend to legend to legend, to the next wave of youngsters that best exemplifies the historical resiliency of a people and their city. And perhaps one of the busiest and most inventive A-listers on New ...

Mike Dillon: Rosewood

Read "Rosewood" reviewed by Doug Collette


Texas-born Mike Dillon moves in as many different directions as his varied skills allow. Witness his work with, among others, Garage A Trois, Critters Buggin' and Nolatet. Yet none of his adventures are as satisfying as when he adheres to his niche as vibraphonist/percussionist, so Rosewood makes a suitable companion piece to the similarly conceived and ...

Kirk Knuffke: Brightness Live In Amsterdam

Read "Brightness Live In Amsterdam" reviewed by Doug Collette


Kirk Knuffke's well-developed musical pedigree compelled the ever-so-astute drummer/composer/bandleader Allison Miller to recruit him for her forward-thinking ensemble Boom Tic Boom. It's the same premise upon which guitarist Charlie Hunter enlisted this man with the horns accompaniment for Everybody Has A Plan Until They Get Punched In The Mouth (Self-Produced, 2016). And in also assuming the ...

The Wood Brothers At The Flynn Center

Read "The Wood Brothers At The Flynn Center" reviewed by Doug Collette


The Wood Brothers The Flynn Center for the Performing Arts Burlington, VT February 6, 2020 It was only poetic justice for The Wood Brothers to headline their own show at The Flynn Center on February 6 2020. And not just because in 2009, they won over the audience in this venerable ...

Karl Denson's Tiny Universe: Gnomes and Badgers

Read "Gnomes and Badgers" reviewed by Doug Collette


Karl Denson's Tiny Universe swings hard and grooves deeply for the better part of Gnomes and Badgers. In fact, if the tracks with vocals like “What If You Knew" on the first half of the record were sequenced in a different order, those cuts might well be nothing more than mere distraction from the real attraction(s) ...

John Medeski: John Medeski's Mad Skillet

Read "John Medeski's Mad Skillet" reviewed by Doug Collette


Steeped in, but hardly a slave to, the milieu of the Crescent City, John Medeski (of Medeski, Martin & Wood fame) recorded in The Big Easy with sousaphonist Kirk Joseph and drummer Terence Higgins (both natives of New Orleans and members of the Dirty Dozen Brass Band), along with guitarist Will Bernard, one of the unsung ...

Nouveau Fusion: Superette And Visitors

Read "Nouveau Fusion: Superette And Visitors" reviewed by Doug Collette


Bereft of forced funk and over-complicated compositions, jazz-rock fusion can be as liberating as the best rock and roll. That is, if the technical expertise brought to bear is restrained and sublimated to the unity of the ensemble and the musicians involved play with the unity of a true band. Then the emotional expression usually contained ...

Nolatet: No Revenge Necessary

Read "No Revenge Necessary" reviewed by Doug Collette


The music of Nolatet's sophomore album No Revenge Necessary belies its laissez faire title. Almost a mirror image of its largely insinuating predecessor, Dogs (Royal Potato Family, 2016), this sophomore effort finds the Crescent city-based ensemble flexing its collective muscles early and often, so the record lends itself to uninhibited dance almost as often as contemplation ...

Grayson Capps: Scarlett Roses

Read "Scarlett Roses" reviewed by Doug Collette


It makes perfect sense for Grayson Capps' Scarlett Roses to conclude with a cut called “Moving On" (and for a lyric sheet to be included). The music on this album sounds like it comes from a place just beyond the world as most of us know it. Like the appropriately designated title song, the material itself ...

The Chris Robinson Brotherhood at Higher Ground

Read "The Chris Robinson Brotherhood at Higher Ground" reviewed by Doug Collette


The Chris Robinson Brotherhood The Ballroom at Higher Ground South Burlington, VT November 5, 2017 Sunday November 5th was the first night following the end of daylight savings time, which might have held some portent for the Chris Robinson Brotherhood, a group whose leader places so much stock in the mystical. ...

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!
