Nels Cline: Lovers

Read "Lovers" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

No one can accuse guitarist Nels Cline of being predictable. He has recorded with his avant-garde trio the Nels Cline Singers most consistently (with bassist Devin Hoff and drummer Scott Amendola), but also led larger groups, such as the one on New Monastery (Cryptogramophone, 2006). More recently there was his duet with guitarist Julian Lage on ...

Nels Cline: Lovers

Read "Lovers" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

When I first heard excerpts from Nels Cline's Lovers project, I wasn't too impressed. I thought it sounded like some kind of archaic “mood music" album. Then as I heard more about the set, including the songs being performed and the personnel performing them, I became intrigued. Now I've heard the entire thing and understand what ...

Dylan Ryan Sand: Circa

Read "Circa" reviewed by Maurizio Comandini

Dylan Ryan / Sand: Circa

Read "Circa" reviewed by Troy Collins

Sand is the latest project from forward-thinking drummer Dylan Ryan, leader and principal composer of Herculaneum, a progressive ensemble that skillfully negotiates the tenuous divide between avant-garde jazz and instrumental post-rock. This smaller lineup (featuring guitarist Timothy Young and bassist Devin Hoff) evinces a similar aesthetic, exploring the harmonic, melodic and rhythmic intricacies of creative improvised ...

Read "Circa" reviewed by Robert Bush

Circa is the second effort from drummer Dylan Ryan's trio Sand, featuring guitarist Timothy Young and bassist Devin Hoff, extending the concepts established on the 2012 release, Bleached Sky.

Mikolaj Trzaska/ Devin Hoff/ Michael Zerang: Sleepless In Chicago

Read "Sleepless In Chicago" reviewed by John Sharpe

With Poland proving such a welcoming venue for so many of Chicago's finest, it's no surprise to see a little quid pro quo from time to time. Reedman Mikołaj Trzaska, one of his country's most forward thinking players, has collaborated with various visiting Americans, most notably Joe McPhee and Ken Vandermark, but it is as a ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
