A distanza di sei anni dal celebrato The Art f Conversation, Kenny Barron e Dave Holland introducono nel loro sodalizio il batterista Johnathan Blake per realizzare un nuovo pregevole lavoro che non ricalca—com'è giusto che sia—quello precedente.

Shai Maestro: Human

Read "Human" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic


That pianist Shai Maestro dreams music is an understatement: With an intense romanticist's heart, he also plays in said dream state. And it is re-affirming to know that, after the hellish year the world has been dragged kicking through, that we can all dream too. Human dreams broadly with sunrises, sunsets and all the ...

The Venue Owner: Henry Wong of An Die Musik

Read "The Venue Owner: Henry Wong of An Die Musik" reviewed by B.D. Lenz


As the Covid crisis continues to ravage the music and entertainment business I was interested to speak to a venue owner.

Tom Lawton: Not Less Than Everything

Read "Tom Lawton: Not Less Than Everything" reviewed by Victor L. Schermer


Not known, because not looked for But heard, half-heard, in the stillness Between two waves of the sea. Quick now, here, now, always-- A condition of complete simplicity (Costing not less than everything) --T.S. Eliot, Four Quartets; “Little Gidding" This poetic quotation ...

Jocelyn Gould: Elegant Traveler

Read "Elegant Traveler" reviewed by David A. Orthmann


The first thing that attracts attention on Elegant Traveler, Jocelyn Gould's debut as a leader, is her guitar's tone. The sound she coaxes from the instrument has a profound effect on the music as a whole, yet it remains intimate, unpretentious and disarming. Whether Gould is playing a melody, improvising, or offering sparse accompaniment, it is ...

Trout Mask Replica

Read "Trout Mask Replica" reviewed by Eric Gudas


“No Instruction Sheet": Trout Mask Replica's Unfathomable Origin Story If you were a teenager who liked freaky stuff, on a June day in 1969 you could bicycle down to your local record store and buy a brand-new, shrink-wrapped album with a man covering his entire face with an actual fish head on the cover. A double-LP ...

Bria Skonberg: Nothing Never Happens

Read "Nothing Never Happens" reviewed by Jerome Wilson


Canadian trumpeter Bria Skonberg has made a name for herself as a player who is adept in traditional jazz styles but can also dabble in modern forms of rock and pop music. Her previous CD, With A Twist (Okeh, 2017), was a fun mixture of hot jazz and bubbly 1950s and 1960s pop tunes sparked with ...

Peter Brötzmann: I Surrender Dear

Read "I Surrender Dear" reviewed by Mark Corroto


You can forgive yourself if you get the feeling that you're a bit of a voyeur while listening to I Surrender Dear, the solo recording by saxophonist Peter Brötzmann. This sense of eavesdropping is due to the intimate sounds and the great man's choice of music. This intimacy is not something you generally associate with Brötzmann's ...

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!
