Nate Wooley: Knknighgh Minimal Poetry (for Aram Saroyan)

Read "Knknighgh Minimal Poetry (for Aram Saroyan)" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

Il multiforme talento di Nate Wooley aggiunge una tessera significativa alla propria generosa produzione discografica, pubblicata in buona parte dall'etichetta Clean Feed.

Dre Hocevar: Surface of Inscription

Read "Surface of Inscription" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Drummer, composer Dre Hocevar is a deft improviser who largely produces music that casts his out-of-the-box thinking. With his sextet, including vocalist Charmaine Lee's avant-garde wordless chants, iterations, and conventional singing, we hear a consortium of bizarre sound designs, tonal disparities and radical spins on just about everything imaginable. It's all executed with asymmetrical cadences along ...

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.
