Alan Braufman, Anteloper & Owl Xounds Exploding Galazy

Read "Alan Braufman, Anteloper & Owl Xounds Exploding Galazy" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

It's baseball season—sort of—so I guess you could say this episode of OMJ touches a lot of bases. The NY underground scene gets explored a bit via 70's Loft pioneer Alan Braufman who has a new release, while more recent practitioners of the outside get sampled—Owl Xounds Exploding Galaxy and Scurvy. Today's Jaimie Branch is here ...

Read "Jerry Granelli, Lisa Ullén, Rudresh Mahanthappa & Yells At Eels" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

Drummer extraordinaire Jerry Granelli says he doesn't look back too much, he'd prefer to move forward with his music, but with Jamie Saft and Brad Jones in tow, he decided the time was right to rediscover some of the tunes he played backing Vince Guaraldi and Mose Allison years back. A sample of his new album ...

Whit Dickey, Asher Gamedze, Quin Kirchner, Icepick and More

Read "Whit Dickey, Asher Gamedze, Quin Kirchner, Icepick and More" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

Three albums by drummers highlight this episode. South Africa's Asher Gamedze's Dialectic Soul brings to light the freer, more avant side of contemporary South African jazz (perhaps in a way that the revered Louis Moholo Moholo did over fifty years ago), while drummer Quin Kirchner's latest delves into various rhythms and tributes to favorite musicians.

The words accompany a picture of Dahl with paint-stained ...

Jakob Dinesen: Keys & Strings

Read "Keys & Strings" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

In the liner essay for Jakob Dinesen's double album, Keys & Strings, writer Eddie Michel Azoulay mentions the tenor saxophonist's quest for truth and beauty. The romantic poet John Keats is not mentioned directly, but his lines from the famous poem “Ode on a Gracian Urn" immediately come to mind: “Beauty is truth, truth beauty, that ...

Torhild Ostad / Carsten Dahl: Jeg roper til deg

Read "Jeg roper til deg" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

Back in 1982, the Norwegian singer, Radka Toneff, released a very special duo album with the American pianist, Steve Dobrogosz, called Fairytales. Since then, the fate of the music has also become something of a fairytale, with the album being chosen as one of the best Norwegian albums of all time. It seems ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
