Michael Gibbs & The NDR Big Band: Play a Bill Frisell Set List / In My View

Read "Michael Gibbs & The NDR Big Band: Play a Bill Frisell Set List / In My View" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Though his recording career dates back to the early 1960s, Zimbabwe-born arranger, composer and musician Michael Gibbs hasn't always been as prolific as a leader as he might have been. Five albums in the first half the 1970 represented his most industrious period of creativity, as teaching, television and film work and arranging for a surprisingly ...

Michael Gibbs and the NDR Big Band: Play a Bill Frisell Set List / In My View

Read "Michael Gibbs and the NDR Big Band: Play a Bill Frisell Set List / In My View" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Michael Gibbs è stato un protagonista del jazz britannico di fine anni sessanta/inizio settanta, ma il suo brillante esordio come orchestratore non ha avuto i riconoscimenti che meritava. Il suo primo disco Michael Gibbs e il successivo Tanglewood 63 sono opere ricche d'immaginazione, che seguono di poco le sperimentazioni elettriche di Don Ellis e anticipano di ...

Nguyen Le With Michael Gibbs & NDR Bigband: Celebrating The Dark Side Of The Moon

Read "Nguyen Le With Michael Gibbs & NDR Bigband: Celebrating The Dark Side Of The Moon" reviewed by Ian Patterson

It's a bold concept; take Pink Floyd's iconic Dark Side of the Moon (Harvest, 1973) and reinterpret it in a big band jazz setting. With upwards of forty million copies sold, every note, every nuance of Floyd's eighth album is so firmly entrenched in the minds of the band's legion devotees that to tamper with the ...

Alan Broadbent And NDR Bigband: America The Beautiful

Read "America The Beautiful" reviewed by Edward Blanco

Being a part of the big band sound was an experience pianist Alan Broadbent embraced, endured and eventually, wanted to step away from. Orchestra music--comprised of boisterous reeds and brass sections--were far too loud and too big drowning out the finesse sounds of the acoustic piano. When Broadbent left the Woody Herman Big Band in 1972, ...

Michael Gibbs and the NDR BigbandBack in the DaysCuneiform Records2012Jazz may be filled with reharmonizations, reinventions and reimaginings of songs from across its entire history; few artists have, however, made their names solely as composers and arrangers.

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
