Marilyn Mazur: Elixir

Read "Elixir" reviewed by Budd Kopman


Percussionist Marilyn Mazur is a prime example of why many drummers these days are prone to listing themselves also as percussionists. The distinction is important beyond the number of instruments available to the player and involves the attitude towards their place in any musical enterprise. Drummer/percussionists like Paul Motian, Jon Christensen or Tony ...

Marilyn Mazur: Elixir

Read "Elixir" reviewed by John Kelman


Marilyn Mazur may be best remembered to North American audiences for her work with Miles Davis in the 1980s. Since then, however, the Danish percussionist has continued to lead an active musical life on her own projects including Small Labyrinths (ECM, 1997), as well as collaborating on ECM recordings by Eberhard Weber, Jon Balke and Jan ...

Hal Russell's Chemical Feast: Elixir

Read "Elixir" reviewed by AAJ Staff


When one examines the evolution of jazz, certain key individuals stand out as turning points. For free jazz in Chicago, it was Hal Russell's various groups that eventually helped spur Mars Williams and Ken Vandermark to prominence (at least on record); and that has led us to a virtual avalanche of good music. So it's worth ...

Hal Russell's Chemical Feast: Elixir

Read "Elixir" reviewed by Derek Taylor


The music of Chemical Feast incorporates an ingredient often lacking from most free jazz - a healthy helping of humor and whimsy. One of Hal Russell’s numerous pre-NRG vehicles, the quintet juggled a manic improvisatory energy with all-wheel drive versatility and a circus-like jocularity pervaded their music. As the first of a series of archival recordings ...

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!
