Judith & Dave O'Higgins: His 'n' Hers

Read "His 'n' Hers" reviewed by Chris May

Here is a great idea for a tough tenors face-off in the tradition of the Johnny Griffin / Eddie “Lockjaw" Davis group... Get hold of a tenor duo comprising a husband and wife who are on the verge of divorce and can barely stand being in the same room together and record them as they try ...

Denise Mangiardi: Brown Book

Read "Brown Book" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

Denise Mangiardi dwells in two musical worlds, as both a jazz singer and an accomplished classical composer. She puts all her talents to good use on this CD, singing a collection of self-written ballads, folk songs and torch songs, over her own haunting arrangements. Mangiardi's moving string-writing appears on the two brief “Soundscape" instrumentals ...

Rob Luft: Life Is The Dancer

Read "Life Is The Dancer" reviewed by Chris May

British guitarist Rob Luft's debut album, Riser (Edition, 2017), was greeted with huge acclaim. Some observers likened his arrival to the emergence of Wes Montgomery or Pat Metheny. The music world is used to hyperbole, but for once the praise is justified. For anyone yet to hear Luft, a useful yardstick is the pianist Bill Evans: ...

The Darius Brubeck Quartet: Live In Poland

Read "Live In Poland" reviewed by Chris May

Early on in his career, the pianist Darius Brubeck bowed to the inevitable.

Dave O'Higgins & Rob Luft: Plays Monk & Trane

Read "Plays Monk & Trane" reviewed by Chris May

Hearing the young British guitarist Rob Luft for the first time on his debut album, Riser (Edition, 2017), was rather like hearing American guitarist Johnny Smith for the first time on Moonlight In Vermont (Roost, 1956). You knew you were listening to something special. And while much separates the players' styles, much unites them, too: Smith's ...

The Sax Section: Oh Gee!

The Sax Section: Oh Gee!

From time to time, I post on albums that showcase saxophone sections. What can I say, I'm a sucker for reeds. The last time I posted on such an album was in June, when I wrote about Jay Cameron's International Sax Band from 1955 and provided a long list of my favorite sax section albums (go ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
