Clark Gibson + Orchestra: Bird with Strings: The Lost Arrangements

Read "Bird with Strings: The Lost Arrangements" reviewed by Hrayr Attarian

Alto saxophonist Clark Gibson's Bird with Strings: The Lost Arrangements is an ambitious undertaking and, at first glance, a bold statement. Evoking, arguably the greatest jazz musician, saxophonist Charlie Parker is not an easy task. Gibson, however, is not emulating Parker nor making any stylistic claims to his legacy. He is simply paying homage ...

Clark Gibson + Orchestra: Bird with Strings: The Lost Arrangements

Read "Bird with Strings: The Lost Arrangements" reviewed by Jack Bowers

The story behind Bird with Strings: The Lost Arrangements is a long one and far too elaborate to dwell on here. Suffice to say that a handful of these arrangements for alto saxophone and small string orchestra, written originally for the incomparable Charlie Parker, have been heard before (albeit by rather small audiences) while most of ...

Charles McPherson: The Journey

Read "The Journey" reviewed by Edward Blanco

One of the original bebop artists of our time, alto saxophonist Charles McPherson adds to his legacy and marches through a selection of timely bop-infused material on The Journey, demonstrating his mastery of the idiom by transforming jazz classics into fresh-sounding bop tunes with a blend of originals rolled into one exciting package.

Blistering post-bop remains McPherson's signature, but there is also a modernist streak ...

Chip Stephens Trio: Chip Stephens Trio: Relevancy

Read "Chip Stephens Trio: Relevancy" reviewed by Carlo Wolff

Chip Stephens is an impeccable technician, a clever, even daring composer, and a restless explorer of melody. Adept at swing and complexity, he unfurls piano lines with a restless authority that marries brawn to delicacy in this collection of originals and transmogrified standards. Bracketed by a brisk, darting take on Carla Bley's angular “Syndrome" ...

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.
