The Spice Cabinet

The answer to Beijing’s party-cum-creative music scene, the Spice Cabinet, let by keyboardist Terry Hsieh blends Funk, Bebop, R&B, and even Spaghetti Westerns to form a worldview that is epic and playful in its explorations, known as "Deathbop". Born from the mind of veteran session musician and jazz trombonist Terry Hsieh during the beginning of his 8-year voyage to Beijing, The Spice Cabinet represents the handshake of cultures when people of vastly different backgrounds bond together over the shared love of jazz and pop music. Their style combines the cinematic orchestration, multiculturalism, rambunctious energy and production value of a pop concert, with the intense focus and virtuosity of their shared background in jazz improvisation

MUSICIAN Born:

Anthony K Wright

Tony began playing brass at school, before moving to Clarinet at the age of 12, and Saxophone a bit later. He turned professional in the early ‘80s, playing sax as a session musician in London, and running various rock bands in night clubs and on the gig circuit in London and South Wales. He maintained his interest in the Clarinet, and in the early ‘90s began playing jazz on the circuit in the West Country, whilst teaching on the Performing Arts syllabus at North Devon College. Moving to Surrey in ‘98, he is now widely known as a Reeds teacher, with students ranging from adult beginners to advanced Grade 8 and Diploma-level specialists

MUSICIAN Born:

Myrans Orkester

Myrans Orkester is a liveact that now finally has recorded their jazzy and up- beat covers. From years of traveling through Sweden and getting parties started, they know how to get everyone up on the dancefloor. This was the feeling they brought with them into the studio when they set out to record their second stu- dioalbum. The new album is filled with energy! With the new album, Myrans Orkester has transformed modern hits into jazzy party music. The band has chosen their favorite songs and with their own uni- que sound made them into modern classics. They cover great artists such as Beyoncé, Rolling Stones, Dua Lipa, The Weeknd and Britney Spears and make the songs come to new life with an even more upbeat sound and energy

Manu Codjia: Covers

Read "Covers" reviewed by Jeff Dayton-Johnson

Is Steamin' with the Miles Davis Quintet (Prestige, 1956) a “covers" album? Not a single Davis-penned original on the record. But, of course, performing other composers' material is the jazz musician's stock in trade. No, the notion of “covers" is more recent, and its use in jazz today evokes the ironic rock-weaned hipster, exemplified by The ...

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.
