Harris Eisenstadt: Recent Developments

Read "Recent Developments" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Formazione piuttosto singolare questa messa assieme dal batterista Harris Eisenstadt, senza sassofoni, chitarre e pianoforti, ma invece con fagotto, flauto, tuba e violoncello. Strumenti di estrazione classica, che in realtà nel jazz non sono mai mancati, specie alle origini (banjo e tuba) o in ambiti d'avanguardia (flauto e fagotto), ma che tutti assieme è raro incontrare. ...

Harris Eisenstadt: Recent Developments

Read "Recent Developments" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

His passion as a student of the art has taken him to West Africa, where he has studied the music of the Wolof people and Cuba, where he has delved deeply into ...

Ingrid Laubrock Serpentines: Serpentines

Read "Serpentines" reviewed by John Sharpe

On the eponymous Serpentines, German-born, NYC-based saxophonist Ingrid Laubrock's unveils a new outfit featuring unconventional instrumentation, peopled by an all star cast. For this line up Laubrock takes her enigmatic charts for groups such as Anti-house and Ubatuba to another level, as improv jazz meets the classical avant-garde in pieces where mood and texture often trump ...

Le Rex: Wild Man / Ingrid Laubrock: Ubatuba

Read "Le Rex: Wild Man / Ingrid Laubrock: Ubatuba" reviewed by Stefano Merighi

Due organici praticamente identici (fiati + batteria) con un ruolo importante riservato alla tuba. Sembrano lontani i tempi in cui questo strumento aveva ritrovato agilità e stupore, sotto le dita di Howard Johnson o Bob Stewart. Ora i fremiti bassi e rugosi dell'ottone glorioso sono esaltati nei ritmi delle musiche di Henry Threadgill ...

Ingrid Laubrock: Ubatuba

Read "Ubatuba" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

It's hard to believe that German born saxophonist and composer Ingrid Laubrock has been recording since the late 1990s, perhaps because there is a distinct newness to every project she releases. Although she trained with Jean Toussaint in London for a short time and later with Dave Liebman, Laubrock is very much a self-made artist with ...

Tony Malaby: Scorpion Eater

Read "Scorpion Eater" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

Tubacello: un bel sincretismo lessicale per definire l'organico riunito da Tony Malaby in occasione di questo Scorpion Eater. L'accoppiata di tuba e violoncello (che con il termine tubacello diventano un unico strumento, fantastico) viene scelta dal sassofonista in sostituzione del contrabbasso e dà vita a una formazione di marcata duttilità, in grado di affrontare con efficacia ...

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.
