Benedikt Jahnel Trio: The Invariant

Read "The Invariant" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Sometimes there's no substitute for experience, as demonstrated by this trio as it celebrates its tenth anniversary as a working unit. Last heard on Equilibrium (ECM, 2012), it's an international group that met through a series of lucky coincidences: Berlin-based pianist/composer Benedikt Jahnel is joined by Spanish bassist Antonio Miguel and Canadian drummer Owen Howard.

Cyminology: Phoenix

Read "Phoenix" reviewed by Vic Albani

Lo scrivevamo qualche anno fa da queste stesse colonne: lei si chiama Cymin Samawatie, iraniana nata a Braunschweig anche se da molti anni berlinese acquisita, capace di lavorare ad alti livelli sulle metriche della poesia classica di Rumi o Hafez. Accanto ad un trio formato dal pianista Benedikt Jahnel, dal bassista Ralf Schwarz e dal batterista ...


Benedikt Jahnel: Equilibrium

Read "Equilibrium" reviewed by John Kelman

He may be better known internationally to ECM fans for his participation in the pan-cultural Cyminology, but German pianist Benedikt Jahnel has been devoting just as much attention to his multinational trio featuring Spanish bassist Antonio Miguel and American drummer Owen Howard.

Cyminology: Saburi

Read "Saburi" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Suoni di casa ECM in questo nuovo lavoro del gruppo Cyminology. Quelli chiari, sicuri, familiari che ci accompagnano da mezzo secolo. C'è una voce femminile che assomiglia a quella di Norma Winstone di un famoso trio di tanti, tanti anni fa inciso sotto lo stesso tetto e l'atmosfera sembra pescare a piene mani proprio da quell'avventura. ...

The Jazz Session #101: Cyminology

The Jazz Session #101: Cyminology

Cymin Sawamatie was born in Germany to Iranian parents, and that mix of cultures informs the music of her band, Cyminology. On their third CD, and their first for ECM, Cyminology (ECM, 2009), the quartet explores the poetry of Rumi, Hafiz and Forugh Farrokhzad, combining these disparate poetic influences with a rich palette of composed and ...

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.
