Nathan Hubbard / Skeleton Key Orchestra: Furiously Dreaming

Read "Furiously Dreaming" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Sprawling. Massive. Unapologetically ambitious. All over the musical map. But, somehow, not excessive.

The leader or co-leader of a dozen or so different small ensembles playing everything from modern jazz to contemporary ...

Kronomorfic: Entangled

Read "Entangled" reviewed by Maurizio Zerbo

Forti di una solidissima formazione musicale, i due leader David Borgo e Paul Pellegrin hanno messo la loro volatile espressività al servizio di un progetto estremamente stratificato sul piano ritmico e timbrico. È soprattutto il batterista ad imprimere il proprio stile all'identità di Entangled. Il policentrismo ritmico del suo drumming persegue irregolari sviluppi ...

David Borgo, with and Against, 1998

I've been covering David Borgo's music on these pages with a number of postings (do a search in the search box to find the others). That's because I find him one of the important West Coast voices today, as tenor-soprano stylist and as composer-conceptualist. If I retrace steps today to go back to one of his ...

David Borgo: Ubuntu

Read "Ubuntu" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

E’ cresciuto David Borgo. Avevamo lasciato il giovane sassofonista e ricercatore del Maryland con un album un po’ anonimo, in bilico tra post-Bop e Fusion, sia pur d’autore (Massanetta Spring, edito dalla Circumvention Music nel 2003) e oggi lo ritroviamo alle prese con un vero e proprio “concept-album”, pieno di frutti gustosi e saporiti. Al centro ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
