Carsten Dahl: Painting Music

Read "Painting Music" reviewed by Chris Mosey


Danish pianist Carsten Dahl uses the liner notes for Painting Music to try to explain the process of creation. “The universe has a sound and rhythm," he says. “Everything moves forward, either powerful and explosive or modest and like slow shadows in a landscape." The words accompany a picture of Dahl with paint-stained ...

Anna Greta Siguroardottir - Max Schultz: Brighter

Read "Brighter" reviewed by Chris Mosey


An album of moods, in which light, lilting, melodic passages are contrasted with dissonance, Max Schultz's authorative guitar generally lightens things up while Joakim Milder's saxophone signals a plunge into neurotic introspection. All this tends to drown out Icelandic pianist Anna Greta Siguroardottir's gentle musings on piano. It sounds as if they just ...

Kirk Whalum: Humanité

Read "Humanité" reviewed by Chris Mosey


The saxophone solo on Whitney Houston's “I Will Always Love You" was the work of Kirk Whalum. He played too at the memorial concert for African American astronaut Ronald McNair, killed when the space shuttle Challenger blew up during take-off in January 1986. He's no great shakes as a vocalist but Humanité features guest appearances in ...

In 1958 jazz pianist Erroll Garner became embroiled in a bitter legal battle with Columbia Records over money and the fact that the company had released an album of his early work against his wishes.

Petter Bergander Trio: Kierkegaard's Waltz

Read "Kierkegaard's Waltz" reviewed by Chris Mosey


The honouring in popular song of Sören Kierkegaard, author of “The Sickness Unto Death" and other light works has been a long time coming. To be exact, we've waited since his death in 1855 for this moment. “Heidegger's Boogie" and “The Schopenhauer Rag" must surely follow. The curious thing is that Kierkegaard's Waltz is an album ...

Michel Camilo: Essence

Read "Essence" reviewed by Chris Mosey


Michel Camilo is a virtuoso pianist who mixes jazz, Latin and classical. Playing as part of a trio, he is famous for hitting the listener with a constant barrage of technique as dazzling as it is tiring. Fortunately, the big band format of Essence puts the lid on such displays. The album forms a retrospective on ...

Ranky Tanky: Good Time

Read "Good Time" reviewed by Chris Mosey


Why change a winning formula? Ranky Tanky's follow-up to their hit debut album takes things further in the same vein: a heady mix of gospel and traditional Gullah songs from the Sea Islands of South Carolina, laced with original music and lyrics. The emphasis this time is on a pounding beat generated by the electric guitar ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
