Trish Clowes: My Iris

Read "My Iris" reviewed by Phil Barnes

There's an energy and a focus about this, Clowes fourth album for UK indie Basho records, that suggests a creative breakthrough. My Iris has kept that restlessness and love of music irrespective of genre apparent in Clowes earlier work, but feels a better constructed programme where the stylistic shifts are organic developments that blend naturally into ...

Tom Hewson Trio: Treehouse

Read "Treehouse" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

Treehouse, album number two from the young British pianist Tom Hewson, finds him working in a trio (which is also known as Treehouse) alongside two more of the brightest young players on the UK jazz scene--bassist Calum Gourlay and vibes player Lewis Wright. It's a lyrical and engaging collection--mostly of Hewson's own compositions--with the relatively rare ...

Trish Clowes: Pocket Compass

Read "Pocket Compass" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

On her debut album, Tangent (Basho Records, 2010), saxophonist Trish Clowes gathered together a large group of musicians and included a full orchestra on two tracks. For her impressive second album, And In The Night-time She Is There (Basho Records, 2012), she streamlined the line-up, adding just half a dozen guests to the core quintet but ...

Michael J McEvoy: The Long Way Home

Read "The Long Way Home" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

Michael J McEvoy is something of a musical chameleon--a composer, instrumentalist and producer who's played a crucial role in many musical projects without grabbing the limelight. He's composed film soundtracks (including 2008's Me And Orson Welles), and worked as musician or producer with an extensive array of artists including Ian Dury, Sting, Scritti Politti, the Bee ...

Michael J Mc Evoy's "The Long Way Home" Available March 10th

This has got instant appeal. And it’s over far too soon. With a melodic 1970s vibe to start with on the title track opener and Gerard Presencer’s bluesy horn commentary over a strong rhythm section of pianist McEvoy joined by Empirical bassist Tom Farmer and the Golden trio’s James Maddren this is the former musical director ...

Rachael Cohen: Halftime

Read "Halftime" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

The Shetland Islands, way up north off the coast of Scotland, have a long and noble history of producing fine folk and roots musicians. They've never really garnered plaudits for their jazzers, but that might be about to change. The islands were home to saxophonist Rachael Cohen for the first dozen years of her life and ...

Scottish National Jazz Orchestra: In the Spirit of Duke

Read "Scottish National Jazz Orchestra: In the Spirit of Duke" reviewed by Jack Bowers

It had long been saxophonist Tommy Smith's dream to perform and record a live concert of music written by or associated with the great Duke Ellington. As leader of the acclaimed Scottish National Jazz Orchestra, Smith set about making that dream come true, and in October 2012 it happened, as an enthusiastic audience saw and heard ...

Anthony Strong: Stepping Out

Read "Stepping Out" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

Not too many years ago it seemed that the art of the male jazz vocalist was heading in the same direction as black and white televisions and 8-track cartridges. One or two notable voices kept the flame alive, but new, young, vocal talent wasn't emerging. Then it started: a slow process, but new male singers began ...

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.
