Grateful Dead: Grateful Dead (Skull & Roses)

Read "Grateful Dead (Skull & Roses)" reviewed by Doug Collette

Grateful Dead, the second album of concert recordings released by the iconic band for Warner Brothers Records, resides squarely in the sweet spot between the expansive likes of its corollary, Live Dead (Warner Bros., 1969) and the economical studio recordings this group issued in between, Workingman's Dead (Warner Bros., 1970) and American Beauty (Warner Bros., 1970). ...

Gary Vogenson: Shot of Hope

Read "Shot of Hope" reviewed by Doug Collette

If the title of Gary Vogenson's Shot of Hope was not so pertinent to the post-quarantine world, he might well have named it Don't Misunderstand Me Too Quickly. At a quick glance, song choices such as the traditional “The Cuckoo" and Dan Penn and Chip Moman's soul/R&B standard “Do Right Woman" seem predictable. But, juxtaposed as ...

J. Peter Schwalm & Markus Reuter: Aufbruch

Read "Aufbruch" reviewed by Doug Collette

The first recorded collaboration between J. Peter Schwalm and Markus Reuter, Aufbruch, is one of those very rare and unusual albums that unobtrusively, almost surreptitiously, wends its way into the subconscious. It compels repeated and often frequent replays, not so much to comprehend the arcane sounds, but to simply become immersed in the moods and textures ...

Wilburt Lee Reliford and Nic Clark: No Ill Wind Blown Here

Read "Wilburt Lee Reliford and Nic Clark: No Ill Wind Blown Here" reviewed by Doug Collette

For a musical instrument so small, the range in sound(s) from a harmonica is nothing less than remarkable. The airy tones of Toots Thielemans and Howard Levy sound nothing like the earthy warbles that of Little Walter and James Cotton, while sinuous lines from the late Norton Buffalo, long-time member of the Steve Miller Band. hardly ...

Wadada Leo Smith: Aesthetic Apex

Read "Wadada Leo Smith: Aesthetic Apex" reviewed by Doug Collette

It would be difficult to find a musician more loyal to his muse than Wadada Leo Smith. From projects with his Golden Quartet/Quintet such as America's National Parks (TUM Records, 2016) to the more expansive ensemble effort Najwa (TUM Records, 2017), then on to the stringent focus of Solo: Reflections and Meditations on Monk (TUM Records, ...

New Memphis Colorways and Utopia: Way Outside the Box

Read "New Memphis Colorways and Utopia: Way Outside the Box" reviewed by Doug Collette

Rendering cliches moot is no small achievement. Yet if these two records prove anything, it is that it's possible to accomplish this daunting task in a variety of ways. In the case of Paul Taylor, aka New Memphis Colorways, his truth lies in the restoration of the fundamental notion a single individual can indeed sound like ...

The Band: Stage Fright 50th Anniversary Edition 2CD

Read "Stage Fright 50th Anniversary Edition 2CD" reviewed by Doug Collette

In order to more fully appreciate the 50th anniversary edition of the Band's third studio album, Stage Fright (Capitol, 1970), it is best to resist the temptation to go off on tangents regarding the revisionism visited upon the release. The supervision administered by the group's guitarist/songwriter Robbie Robertson may be as questionable as that visited upon ...

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!
