Matthew Halsall: Oneness

Read "Oneness" reviewed by Don Phipps

On Oneness, trumpeter and composer Matthew Halsall has fashioned a compendium of pieces that are fixed between spiritual meditative repose and poetry in motion. The collection of seven tone poems was recorded over three sessions in 2008 and are only in 2019 being released. In the liner notes, Halsall explains: “I've always treasured these recordings and ...

Jamie Breiwick: Awake: The Music of Don Cherry

Read "Awake: The Music of Don Cherry" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Trumpeter and multi-instrumentalist Don Cherry is best known for his long association with composer/saxophonist Ornette Coleman. But he also had a diverse career as a bandleader and composer in his own right, and was especially prominent in the fusion of jazz and world music. Wisconsin-based trumpeter Jamie Breiwick mostly draws from Cherry's solo repertoire for this ...

Read "Mara Rosenbloom, Thumbscrew & Nation Beat" reviewed by Martin Longley

Mara Rosenbloom/Melanie Dyer/Ken Filiano/Rashaan Carter Soup & Sound April 10, 2019 It's an old tradition, sometimes out of necessity, for artists to host low-key gigs in their own homes. The hyper-inventive and often powerfully percussive drummer Andrew Drury has been offering soup and sound for quite a while now, opening ...

Lyle MaysLyle MaysGeffen Records1986 Today's Rediscovery falls under the category of “where is he now?" I first heard of keyboardist Lyle Mays in 1977, when Gary Burton's quartet (with guest Eberhard Weber), played at the Glebe Collegiate High School auditorium in my home town of Ottawa, Canada. After the show, speaking ...

CODONA The CODONA Trilogy ECM Records 2009 Somewhere along the way “world music" became a suspect term. Mixed up with the concept of “new age," it makes you think more about hemp clothing, crystal therapy and holistic healing than the sort of basic elemental sounds trumpeter Don Cherry pioneered in ...

Search: Today Is Tomorrow

Read "Today Is Tomorrow" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni

The Brooklyn-based quartet Search is molded after Ornette Coleman's classic quartet. Reed player Matthew Maly, trumpeter RJ Avallone, bassist David Moss and drummer Bryson Kern worked on their debut, Today Is Tomorrow, for two years, with continued encouragement from Coleman himself and additional assistance from Coleman's Prime Time/current bassist Al McDowell, who beautifully captured the sonic ...

CODONA: The CODONA Trilogy

Read "CODONA: The CODONA Trilogy" reviewed by John Kelman

When borders are eliminated, infinite possibilities arise. Perhaps the greatest achievement of ECM Records- -especially during its first decade, when it was establishing the unique identity and aesthetic that has made it such a significant force over the past forty years--has been its ability to bring together artists of seemingly different backgrounds to create music that ...

CODONA: The CODONA Trilogy

Read "The CODONA Trilogy" reviewed by Marcus O'Dair

The three musicians who comprised CODONA are relatively well known, trumpeter Don Cherry in particular. Yet the group he formed with sitar and tabla player Collin Walcott and percussionist Nana Vasconcelos--hence CODONA--has been mysteriously neglected. Despite recording three superb albums for ECM between 1978 and 1982, CODONA remains perhaps one of the label's most underrated acts. ...

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.
