The Westerlies: Wherein Lies the Good

Read "Wherein Lies the Good" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

In un singolare cocktail di varie anime (musica da camera e fanfara, jazz e folklore), il brass quartet qui documentato, originario di Seattle, nato nel 2014 e oggi di stanza a New York, confeziona un lavoro (il suo terzo) di oltre un'ora procedendo per lo più compatto (anche se le singole voci non ne risultano per ...

The Very Singular Mr. Ran Blake

Read "The Very Singular Mr. Ran Blake" reviewed by Duncan Heining

There have been few American composers and musicians, with the ability to encapsulate their country's music in all its racial and ethnic complexity. We might perhaps point to Aaron Copland, Leonard Bernstein, Charles Ives and perhaps, in their own distaff ways, Harry Partch and Steve Reich. In jazz, their number is fewer still--Duke Ellington and George ...

Marc Edwards & Guillaume Gargaud: Black Hole Universe

Read "Black Hole Universe" reviewed by Don Phipps

Black holes are giant space predators—devouring light itself. Theory holds that, as one approaches a black hole's event horizon, time itself slows. So it is interesting that on their album Black Hole Universe, drummer Marc Edwards and guitarist Guillaume Gargaud have chosen to create five diverse yet similar spontaneous compositions which jettison time signatures and conventional ...

Maarten Regtien

Maarten Regtien (1963) started playing classical piano at the age of seven. In 1975 he was introduced to the nearby living (province of Groningen, the Netherlands) Canadian jazz saxofonist and composer Alan Laurillard who introduced M. Regtien to jazz and improvisation. During adolescence his musical taste started to grow towards 'anything new and unheard-of before.' This period included creating prepared piano's and tape experiments many years before he heard the music of John Cage or Brian Eno for the first time. Favorite music in the schoolgooing years was the early psychedelic music of Pink Floyd, The Beatles' White Album, free jazz, cool jazz, bebop, early Philip Glass minimal music and above all master pianists Keith Jarret and Jasper Van't Hoff

Jamie Saft: Solo a Genova

Read "Solo a Genova" reviewed by Doug Collette

Jamie Saft's first solo album in his twenty-five year career, Solo A Genova, captures this restless, daring artist interpreting a selection of songs that reflect his eclectic taste as a reflection of his customary willingness to challenge himself. The sum effect of hearing this recording from Italy in March of 2017 is an altogether glorious experience ...

Jamie Saft: Jazz in the Key of Iggy

Read "Jamie Saft: Jazz in the Key of Iggy" reviewed by Luca Canini

In 1988 Bill Laswell produced Iggy Pop's album Instinct. Back then, little he could have known that, almost thirty years later, he would have been instrumental in facilitating the iconic singer's first foray in the Jazz world. Loneliness Road (RareNoiseRecords) documents the latest incarnation of James Newell Osterberg Junior, the front man of proto-punk band The ...

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.
