Carlos Zingaro

Born 1948 in Lisbon, Portugal; violin, electronics. Carlos Zingaro undertook classical music studies at the Lisbon Music Conservatory from 1953 to 1965, and during the two years 1967/68 he studied church organ at the High School of Sacred Music.

Nuova Camerata: Chant

Read "Chant" reviewed by Nicola Negri

Free improvisation and contemporary music share many aspects, and the goal is the same--to avoid the beaten path of established musical idioms. Of course, sometimes they can both become actual styles, somewhat conforming to predictable strategies, but the most successful instances are those that keep the ambiguity intact, presenting the ideal of “new music" in its ...

Sudo Quartet: Live at Banlieue Bleue

Read "Live at Banlieue Bleue" reviewed by John Sharpe

Such is the strength and conviction with which the Sudo Quartet performs that thoughts immediately turn to how they developed such a cohesive group sound. With no liners and no information on the web, the genesis of the unit remains a mystery, though the same foursome feature on four tracks on bassist Joelle Leandre's At the ...

Sudo Quartet: Live at Banlieue Bleue

Read "Live at Banlieue Bleue" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

The master improvisers on this live set convey a relaxed, yet thoroughly experimental dynamic amid dips, spikes, intricate sub-group dialogues and some mimicking along a course that may suggest an oscillating loop, countered by splintering soundscapes. Hence, the organic nature of the all-acoustic format offers additional insights and subtleties as the musicians scurry across non-linear frameworks, ...

Daunik Lazro: Some Other Zongs

Read "Some Other Zongs" reviewed by Mark Corroto

To designate saxophonist Daunik Lazro the French Joe McPhee--or, perhaps, the French equivalent to Evan Parker--is to illustrate not only the proficiency he has with his instrument, but his formidable improvisational skills. For his second solo release, Some Other Zongs, he sticks solely to the finicky and often blunt baritone saxophone--an instrument which, in the hands ...

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.
