A Madman’s Approach To Music And Why Can't Music Be Like A Tree?

Read "A Madman’s Approach To Music And Why Can't Music Be Like A Tree?" reviewed by Duncan Heining

"Art alone makes life possible." --Joseph Beuys. The Glasgow Improvisers' Orchestra is unique. It's an over-used word, I know, but in this case fully justified. GIO are unique in so many ways--in the way they formed, the way they make decisions, in their make-up, how they work and most importantly how they sound. They ...

Indigo Kid: Indigo Kid

Read "Indigo Kid" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

Indigo Kid, the eponymous debut from this UK-based quartet, is a slow burner. At first, it seems pleasant enough: strongly melodic and musically tight, with well-arranged tunes. But with each additional play the melodies get stronger and the interplay between the guitar and tenor saxophone reveals more and more depth. Third or fourth time around, the ...

David Bixler and Arturo O'Farrill: The Auction Project

Read "The Auction Project" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

Altoist and composer David Bixler leads The Auction Project, with Grammy-winning pianist Arturo O'Farrill, who has described this album as being “very much about colliding cultures." This may slightly overstate things but the album does represent what is, for jazz, a rather unusual meeting of cultures. Half of The Auction Project is devoted ...

Davey Graham: The Complete Guitarist

Read "The Complete Guitarist" reviewed by David Rickert

Davey Graham never found a style of guitar playing that he didn't want to master. In fact, he was such a perfectionist that he recorded infrequently, preferring not to commit any tunes to wax until he had thoroughly explored all the avenues that each tune had to offer. From ragas to ragtime, Graham did it all, ...

Davey Graham / Dave Evans / Duck Baker / Dan Ar Bras: Irish Reels, Jigs, Hornpipes, and Airs

Read "Irish Reels, Jigs, Hornpipes, and Airs" reviewed by David Rickert

Irish Reels, Jigs, Hornpipes, and Airs is the rare acoustic guitar CD that isn't dominated by Leo Kottke-style wizardry or a John Fahey influence. It's also a rare example of Irish music played traditionally and not with the ethereal trappings of new age music. It's perhaps no surprise, then, that it's necessary to travel back to ...

Davey Graham: The Complete Guitarist

Read "The Complete Guitarist" reviewed by AAJ Staff

You may not know Davey Graham, but you’ve probably heard those who have. In late ‘Fifties England, here was a virtuoso in a folk scene just starting to play. Many guitarists call him an influence -–people like Bert Jansch and John Renbourn. It continues today: adapting Moorish music to guitar, Graham hit upon the D-A-D-G-A-D tuning, ...

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.
