David Bowie

Born:

David Robert Jones, known professionally as David Bowie, was an English singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, arranger, painter and actor. Bowie was a figure in popular music for over four decades, and was known as an innovator, particularly for his work in the 1970s. His androgynous appearance was an iconic element of his image, principally in the 1970s and 1980s. Born and raised in South London, Bowie developed an early interest in music although his attempts to succeed as a pop star during much of the 1960s were frustrated. "Space Oddity" became his first top five entry on the UK Singles Chart after its release in July 1969

Various Artists: Modern Love

Read "Modern Love" reviewed by Geno Thackara


Strangely, but perhaps inevitably, the strength of Modern Love is also the thing which makes it suited to niche appreciation more than widespread appeal. Mostly leaning away from the obvious pop and rock of David Bowie's catalogue, this tribute from the BBE Music label focuses on his cuts rooted in soul, R&B, jazz and blues (and ...

Torino Varie sedi 19—27.06.2021 Il grande successo di pubblico ottenuto dal Torino Jazz Festival 2021, spostato dalla fine di aprile alla fine di giugno, dimostra quanto fosse impellente la fame di musica dal vivo, nonostante le precauzioni da prendere contro una pandemia tutt'altro che debellata definitivamente. D'altra parte bisogna ammettere che il ...

Francesco Beccaro e il Questionario di Proust

Read "Francesco Beccaro e il Questionario di Proust" reviewed by Paolo Peviani


Il tratto principale della mia musica Alto tasso di energia, intensa, con molta improvvisazione ma anche con strutture compositive articolate. Una sorta di inedita fusion, distante dallo stereotipo generale, caratterizzata da un suono a volte volutamente grezzo ma sempre energico e suggestivo. Ogni composizione cerca di essere un messaggio chiaro e punta a coinvolgere l'ascoltatore ...

Moers Festival Interviews: Matt Mottel & Kevin Shea

Read "Moers Festival Interviews: Matt Mottel & Kevin Shea" reviewed by Martin Longley


Improviser In Residence becomes Improvisers In Residence, for the 50th anniversary of the Moers Festival in Germany. Running since 2008, this has been a year-long in-house situation for invited artists, and usually offered to a single being. In 2021, we have the innovation of a twosome, in Matt Mottel (keyboards) and Kevin Shea (drums), who also ...

Lamb Anderson Sorgen: First Mile

Read "First Mile" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic


You can discredit the human imagination for any number of horrendous things. But when used right, things like First Mile happen. Some odd quirk in the continuum comes along and you find three far-travelled veterans, namely pianist Chuck Lamb (Dry Jack, Brubeck Brothers), drummer Harvey Sorgen (Hot Tuna, Anthony Braxton, Paul Simon, {[Bill Frisell}}) and bassist ...

The Flowdown: yo-lk

Read "yo-lk" reviewed by Phillip Woolever


It's not easy to categorize this brief eclectic offering via Infinity Gritty, but that's more than likely a primary point of the five-man collaboration's wide-ranging experimental soundscape. While the EP contains only a minimal amount of actual jazz elements and may not excite traditionalists, it does feature some excellent instrumentation, with a finely tuned ...

Gretchen Parlato: Flor

Read "Flor" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


Dopo un'assenza di sei anni dedicati alla maternità, Gretchen Parlato torna con un album magistrale per l'equilibrio che esprime tra ricercatezza, lirismo e intatta spinta a riformulare creativamente i brani. A capo di un nuovo organico--arricchito da Gerald Clayton al piano e tastiere, Mark Guiliana alla batteria e Airto Moreira alle percussioni e voce, in veste ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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!
