Maria Grand: Magdalena

Read "Magdalena" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero


La si aspettava al varco (bonariamente parlando) dopo l'ottimo esordio con l'EP Tetrawind e Maria Grand, giovanissimo talento sbocciato alla corte di Steve Coleman e transitata dalle parti di Steve Lehman, Doug Hammond, Vijay Iyer e Craig Taborn non tradisce le attese, dando alle stampe con Magdalena un album di grande spessore, maturo e per certi ...

Maria Grand: Tetrawind

Read "Tetrawind" reviewed by Geannine Reid

Vocalist are not always viewed as equals with instrumentalist. Unfortunately, vocalists are stigmatized as not possessing the same time sense, improvisatory skills, and instrument control. However, this has thankfully been changing as ...

Ku-umba Frank Lacy & Mingus Big Band: Mingus Sings

Read "Mingus Sings" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


L'arte di Charles Mingus nel comporre song d'intesa forza lirica è stata messa in ombra dalla sua prorompente e tumultuosa espressività, al punto che risulta sorprendente ricordarlo nel ruolo di songwriter. Il nuovo disco della Mingus Big Band con Frank Lacy protagonista in veste di cantante, esemplifica questa dimensione dell'arte mingusiana raccogliendo 13 composizioni (due delle ...

Doug Hammond: It's Now

Read "It's Now" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff


Registrato dal vivo al Jazz am Berg di Linz in Austria, It's Now presenta un quartetto atipico guidato dal batterista Doug Hammond (Rollins, Mingus, Nina Simone, James Blood Ulmer) e completato da tromba, sax e tuba. L'assenza del contrabbasso aumenta la libertà esecutiva dando la possibilità ai fiati di interagire ed esprimersi con maggior fluidità, tanto ...

Read "Inntoene Festival: Diersbach, Austria, June 10-12, 2011" reviewed by Sebastian Scotney


Inntoene Festival 2011 Diersbach, Austria June 10-12, 2011 I overheard a conversation at the Inntoene Festival in Austria. In a mock-incredulous tone, one New York musician was asking another: “Straight up. You're telling me. That this whole farm place. Is owned. By a trombonist?!“ Cue laughter and the ...

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!
