Jeff Beck: Denver, April 15, 2011

Read "Jeff Beck: Denver, April 15, 2011" reviewed by Geoff Anderson

Jeff BeckParamount TheatreDenver, ColoradoApril 15, 2011 Jazz-rock fusion originally came from the jazz side,Miles Davis and his sidemen-turned-leaders--Weather Report, Return to Forever, Mahavishnu Orchestra--but a few practitioners came at it from the rock side, emphasizing the rock angle a little more than the jazz guys.

Kenny Drew, Jr. and Larry Coryell: Duality

Read "Duality" reviewed by Nicholas F. Mondello

The jazz duo affords its participants wonderful opportunities to stretch out creatively. Ideas, suggestions and negotiations of all musical kinds percolate back and forth. And, in the best of instances, they birth new nuggets for further development and exploration. At the same time, the duet framework can possibly limit, as competitive natures and stylistic dichotomies might ...

Alan Ferber: Chamber Songs: Music for Nonet and Strings

Read "Chamber Songs: Music for Nonet and Strings" reviewed by Raul d'Gama Rose

There is a magnificent sequence on “Paradox," about four and a half minutes into the piece, as it races upward. The instruments trade interpretations of the song's conundrum, its paradox, the inverted chord changes on which the song is built--saxophones, then trumpet, the blat-blat-blat of Alan Ferber's trombone, before the strings get their say. It is ...

4th Ward Afro-Klezmer Orchestra: East Atlanta Passover Stomp

Read "East Atlanta Passover Stomp" reviewed by Raul d'Gama Rose

Close to a century ago, Egyptologists, chief among them Cheikh Anta Diop, suggested that there was only one race: The Human Race. The Diaspora scattered from the Rift Valley and the rest, as they say, is, well, nations with severely controlled borders. Music and radio--before the advent of the record--broke some of that down, but most ...

Roberto Magris / Big Band Ritmo Sinfonica Citta di Verona: Restless Spirits

Read "Restless Spirits" reviewed by Raul d'Gama Rose

Even if pianist and composer Roberto Magris could have performed Restless Spirits with a small ensemble, he probably would not have done so. Here is the conundrum: might Magris have created this music in a large ensemble because he intended it to reflect a secret narrative that ponders the journey of the soul? The trick is ...

Jake Langley: Here and Now

Read "Here and Now" reviewed by Raul d'Gama Rose

Like all musicians who inhabit a groove, Jake Langley may very likely get mired in the Hammond B3 and drums trio; that is, record after record could start to sound familiar. But Here and Now gives ample evidence that the guitarist has seized the day and broken free from the blues-laden, Wes Montgomery style that he ...

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.
