Caroline Kraabel: Last 1 and Last 2 (2016/7)

Read "Last 1 and Last 2 (2016/7)" reviewed by John Eyles


Caroline Kraabel gets sole credit for this album, justifiably, as she composed the music, conducted one performance of it, acted as musical director and played alto sax in another performance of it. However, after listening several times, the album leaves a sneaking feeling that Robert Wyatt probably deserved equal billing rather than just being mentioned in ...

Read "Two contrasting releases from Charlotte Hug on the Fundacja Słuchaj! label" reviewed by John Eyles

Caroline Kraabel - Phil Hargreaves: Where We Were

Read "Where We Were" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff


Un vociare fitto e continuo, una ridda di voci apre un disco costruito montando una serie di sessions registrate “sul campo”. Kraabel e Hargreaves hanno scelto di dare maggiore suggestione al proprio dialogo a due cercando di interagire con i luoghi simbolo della natìa Liverpool (il teatro St. George, l’Università, il Wallasey Tunnel, Sefton Park). L’uso ...

Caroline Kraabel / Phil Hargreaves: Where We Were

Read "Where We Were" reviewed by Marc Medwin

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!
