Keith Tippett: 100 Best Foots Forward

Read "Keith Tippett: 100 Best Foots Forward" reviewed by Duncan Heining

From the Albert Hall at twenty-two with a fifty-piece band to picking potatoes to make ends meet a decade later, Keith Tippett's life in music could sum up many a jazz career. After a grim '80s, things now look better for the composer, pianist and bandleader. “What I'm about to say is ridiculous but it was ...

Shabaka & the Ancestors: We Are Sent Here By History

Read "We Are Sent Here By History" reviewed by Chris May

Reed player Shabaka Hutchings became the first British musician to sign to the iconic (for once the word is justified) Impulse! label when his band Sons of Kemet did so in 2018. It was a deal for which his management could rightly be proud. It was also an affirmation which Hutchings felt deeply, for in the ...

Mike Osborne: Force Of Nature - Part 1-2

Read "Mike Osborne: Force Of Nature - Part 1-2" reviewed by Barry Witherden

Part 1 | Part 2 Some three-and-a-half minutes into Release, the Deram recording of Mike Westbrook's seminal suite mixing Swing classics with Westbrook originals, after a scorching solo by John Surman on “The Few," an alto saxophone cadenza emerged from a free ensemble passage: the tone was penetrating, incisive, severe, the phrasing intense, passionate ...

Live From Old York: Laura Jurd, Annie Whitehead, Brooks Williams & Koshka

Read "Live From Old York: Laura Jurd, Annie Whitehead, Brooks Williams & Koshka" reviewed by Martin Longley

Laura Jurd's Dinosaur National Centre For Early Music November 11, 2016 Dinosaur are one of the UK's fastest rising new bands, although their recent re-naming hides a few years of history as the Laura Jurd Quartet. The London foursome still look even younger than their actual ages, thus qualifying as ...

The Blue Notes and the Brotherhood of Breath - Marching to a Different Drum

Read "The Blue Notes and the Brotherhood of Breath - Marching to a Different Drum" reviewed by Duncan Heining

Early one August morning in 1964, seven people crossed the border by train passing from South Africa into Mozambique. It was an unusual group of people--five black men, one white man and one white woman. Any “mixing of the races" was, of course, immediately suspicious in apartheid South Africa. The six men--Louis Moholo, Chris McGregor, Dudu ...

Canto Generàl: Rebel Flames

Read "Rebel Flames" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Uno dei migliori CD usciti nel 2015, anzi forse il migliore tra gli italiani, è questo live di Canto Generàl, ospite alla batteria Louis Moholo-Moholo, con un repertorio anche per questo interamente dedicato al periodo d'oro di quel jazz sudafricano di cui proprio Moholo è l'unico sopravvissuto. Il lavoro -registrato in realtà nel 2007, ...

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.
