Charles Rumback: Singing Structures of Rhythm

Read "Charles Rumback: Singing Structures of Rhythm" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

Versatility, personality and musical empathy are qualities that a modern drummer needs, and Charles Rumback has them in abundance. Based in Chicago, Rumback has accompanied adventurous singer/songwriters like Caleb Willitz, Steve Dawson and Ryley Walker, played jazzy electronica with Colorlist and explored the classic format of the piano trio with bassist John Tate and pianist Jim ...

Culture Clubs: A History of the U.S. Jazz Clubs, Part I: New Orleans and Chicago

Read "Culture Clubs: A History of the U.S. Jazz Clubs, Part I: New Orleans and Chicago" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Marching bands, ragtime music, and the blues, were all well-entrenched and spreading up the Mississippi River Valley from New Orleans at the beginning of the twentieth century. Dixieland was the popular music staple and with the all-white Original Dixieland Jass Band recording the first jazz side, “Livery Stable Blues," in 1917, an original musical language was ...

Nicole Mitchell's Black Earth Ensemble + Ensemble Laborintus: Moments Of Fatherhood

Read "Moments Of Fatherhood" reviewed by John Sharpe

Not content with being one of the foremost performers on her instrument, flutist Nicole Mitchell is also building an impressive body of work for larger ensembles. Moments Of Fatherhood takes its place in a distinguished lineage that includes Arc Of O (Rogue Art, 2012), Three Compositions (Rogue Art, 2013), and Xenogenesis Suite (Firehouse 12, 2008). On ...

Nicole Mitchell's Sonic Projections: The Secret Escapades of Velvet Anderson

Read "The Secret Escapades of Velvet Anderson" reviewed by John Sharpe

Sonic Projections must be flautist Nicole Mitchell's hardest blowing band. For their second outing after Emerald Hills (Rogue Art, 2010) she draws inspiration from another hard blowing source in Chicago legend Fred Anderson. Not only a mentor to many young musicians in the Windy City, the saxophonist also ran the renowned Velvet Lounge tavern. That required ...

Nicole Mitchell's Black Earth Ensemble: Intergalactic Beings

Read "Intergalactic Beings" reviewed by John Sharpe

Intergalactic Beings forms the second chapter in flutist Nicole Mitchell's science fiction derived discographical strand. Like the first, Xenogenesis Suite (Firehouse 12, 2008), it showcases Mitchell the composer, again drawing her inspiration from the Afrofuturist novels of Octavia Butler, in which survivors of nuclear holocaust are plucked from earth by aliens who believe that interbreeding is ...

Vision Festival 19 Has The Matthew Shipp Trio In The Thick Of It

In many ways, Saturday is a miniature of the entire guiding outlook and purpose of this annual love labor from Arts For Art. All elements, discussion, youth support, poetry and a well sequenced array of distinct and personal performance statements are present and the stalwart Matthew Shipp Trio speaks to the element of continuity. A FUTURE ...

Joshua Abrams Quartet: Unknown Known

Read "Unknown Known" reviewed by John Sharpe

"There are known knowns; there are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns; that is to say, there are things that we now know we don't know. But there are also unknown unknowns--there are things we do not know we don't know." Strangely, Donald Rumsfeld didn't mention the unknown known: the things we ...

Roscoe Mitchell: Three Compositions

Read "Three Compositions" reviewed by John Sharpe

On Three Compositions, veteran Chicago saxophonist Roscoe Mitchell's scores are interpreted by an established grouping with an AACM lineage, namesake flautist Nicole Mitchell's Black Earth Ensemble, unlike his previous album of written material, Numbers (Rogue Art, 2011), which featured a varied cast of contemporary players. It makes all the difference. This performance was one of three ...

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.
