Mike Dillon: Rosewood

Read "Rosewood" reviewed by Doug Collette


Texas-born Mike Dillon moves in as many different directions as his varied skills allow. Witness his work with, among others, Garage A Trois, Critters Buggin' and Nolatet. Yet none of his adventures are as satisfying as when he adheres to his niche as vibraphonist/percussionist, so Rosewood makes a suitable companion piece to the similarly conceived and ...

Mike Dillon: Functioning Broke

Read "Functioning Broke" reviewed by Doug Collette


As idiosyncratic as Mike Dillon's work has been with Critters Buggin' and Garage a Trois, it's well-nigh impossible not to fall under the spell of the music he creates all by himself on Functioning Broke. A deep dream-like quality emanates from his musicianship, most resonant in the warm glow of vibes that open “Half Right" and ...

Richie Goods and Nuclear Fusion: Three Rivers

Read "Three Rivers" reviewed by Dave Wayne


Growing up in the 1970s, I was a rabid fan of the aggressive and adventurous sounds of jazz-rock, later re-branded as “jazz fusion." I slowly lost interest as the style became mired in a sticky sea of overproduced pop moves and smooth sentiment, but held out hope for some sort of renaissance. The jam-band fad of ...

Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey: Millions: Live in Denver

Read "Millions: Live in Denver" reviewed by Dave Wayne


Long associated, for better or worse, with the so-called jam band phenomenon of the mid-to-late 1990s, the Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey continues to generate intelligent, daring, genre-defying music. JFJO's first live recording in a decade or so, Millions: Live In Denver, is part celebration of their 20th year of existence and part revelry in their new ...

Critters Buggin: Stampede

Read "Stampede" reviewed by Chris May


Warning! This isn't jazz. Not according to the rule book anyway. (So if you're reading, Stanley, better hit the back button now.) According to Critters Buggin, Stampede --the first album from the Seattle-based quartet in five years--is a mix of “jazz, dub, funk, punk and electronic junk." Verily, it is all those things and ...

Critters Buggin': Stampede

Read "Stampede" reviewed by John Kelman


Critters Buggin', the hardcore Seattle-based quartet featuring percussionist Mike Dillon and reedman/multi-instrumentalist Skerik (last heard together on Garage a Trois' '03 release Emphasizer ), along with drummer/multi-instrumentalist Matt Chamberlain and bassist/multi-instrumentalist Brad Houser, were last seen five years ago on Amoeba , an album of loose grooves, ambient sounds and wild moments of risk. With their ...

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!
