Charlie Haden

“No other instrument in jazz is more essential than the bass, both backbone and heartbeat, and Haden is its master.” (Francis Davis /August, 2000 issue of The Atlantic Monthly) Time Magazine has hailed jazz legend Charlie Haden was “one of the most restless, gifted, and intrepid players in all of jazz.” Haden's career which has spanned more than fifty years has encompassed such genres as free jazz, Portuguese fado and vintage country — the last of which is featured on his latest album, Rambling Boy — not to mention a consistently revolving roster of sidemen and bandleaders that reads like a list from some imaginary jazz hall of fame. Born in Shenandoah, Iowa, Charlie Haden began his life in music almost immediately, singing on his parents’ country & western radio show at the tender age of 22 months

Stefano Tamborrino: Seacup

Read "Seacup" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

Seacup nasce dalla profonda e sincera esigenza, da parte del batterista fiorentino Stefano Tamborrino, di allargare la propria tavolozza, i propri orizzonti espressivi e artistici, mettendo in scena un organico con quattro archi. Il contrabbasso, invece del secondo violino di un quartetto d'archi classico, compie la somma. Dal lavoro scaturisce uno Stefano Tamborrino inedito e lontano ...

Allen Shawn / Michael Bisio: Improvisations

Read "Improvisations" reviewed by Mark Corroto

In this new world of fake news and alternative facts, you may like to challenge the title of pianist Allen Shawn and bassist Michael Bisio's Improvisations. This music is so properly presented, it has all the elements of composed music. To acknowledge these eight tracks as instant composing is sort of mind-blowing. Those immersed ...

Read "A Night at the Jazz Circus! - Part 2" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

One thing that Jazz and Circus have in common is that—unlike way too many things that we see in our daily lives—you can't fake them. You cannot pretend you're an expert among circus or jazz artists... If you are not ... it'll show! And this authenticity may be one of the reasons why they seem so ...

Something Old

Read "Something Old" reviewed by Patrick Burnette

The boys start their trawl through some best-of-decade picks they missed during the last eight years by focusing on four albums in the, let's face it, somewhat amorphous “something old" category. By which we mean, I think, albums on best of decades lists featuring well-established artists playing in fairly familiar modes. Any, the results are mixed ...

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.
