Eric Revis

One of the most talented and accomplished musicians of his generation, Grammy Award-winning bassist and composer Eric Revis has firmly established himself as an important voice in jazz. Branford Marsalis states, “Eric’s sound is the sound of doom; big, thick, percussive.” Scores of musicians across various disciplines agree. Revis has performed and recorded with Betty Carter, Peter Brötzmann, Jeff “Tain” Watts, Jason Moran, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Steve Coleman, Ralph Peterson, Lionel Hampton, McCoy Tyner, Andrew Cyrille, and Tarbaby, the experimental trio he tri-leads with Orrin Evans and Nasheet Waits, as well as another trio, Options, also with Waits, and Bennie Maupin. Manning the bass chair with Branford Marsalis’s powerfully flexible quartet since 1997, Revis has recorded eight albums with the ensemble in addition to touring the globe with them many times over

Eric Revis: Slipknots Through a Looking Glass

Read "Slipknots Through a Looking Glass" reviewed by Troy Dostert

Bassist Eric Revis typically has so many ideas in play that it's virtually impossible for him to limit himself to one ensemble at a time. This is one of the reasons why he's used a variety of groups over the years to deliver his music. His trio with pianist Kris Davis and drummer Andrew Cyrille released ...

Thomas Marriott: Trumpet Ship

Read "Trumpet Ship" reviewed by Paul Rauch

In a day and age when social and personal narratives pervade the jazz recording medium, it is a welcoming feeling to experience a recording of superb jazz musicians playing music in the moment the way it's supposed to be played—for the people.

Avram Fefer Quartet: Testament

Read "Testament" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Ken Vandermark with Kris Davis/Hamid Drake/Paul Lytton/Ikue Mori/William Parker: Momentum 4: Consequent Duos 2015>2019 (Box Set)

Read "Momentum 4: Consequent Duos 2015>2019 (Box Set)" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

When reed player and composer Ken Vandermark launched his recording career in 1995, he did so with the deceptively titled Standards (Quinnah Records). Free improvisations with titles like “Rage for Speaking" and “A Sick Man's Dreams" indicated a different view of the agreed-upon definition. And so, it has been and has evolved, over nearly twenty-five years ...

Greg Ward: Nature Work

Read "Nature Work" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

"Con quel sorriso può dire ciò che vuole" recitava una pubblicità di un noto dentifricio che rese celebre al grande pubblico l'attrice Virna Lisi. Parafrasando potremmo dire, riguardo Nature Work , “Con quella ritmica puoi suonare quello che vuoi" perché Eric Revis al contrabbasso e Jim Black alla batteria formano una coppia formidabile (sorprendentemente al loro ...

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.
