MUSICIAN Born:

Eugene Chadbourne

Eugene Chadbourne (January 4, 1951 in Mount Vernon, New York) is a USA composer, improvisor, guitarist and banjoist. He has also been a reviewer for the All Music Guide (AMG), and a contributor to Maximum RocknRoll. Chadbourne started out playing rock and roll guitar, but quickly grew bored with the form's conventions. He started studying other genres, including blues, country, bluegrass, free jazz, and noise - eventually synthesizing all those heterogeneous influences into a unique style of his own. He was also influenced early on by the experimental stylings of Captain Beefheart and the Mothers of Invention. He is also known as the inventor of the electric rake

Heavy Rotation For A Pandemic Summer

Read "Heavy Rotation For A Pandemic Summer" reviewed by Mark Corroto

In the summer of 2020 one result of the COVID-19 isolation, and artists inability to tour and perform is that they have time to deal with projects halted by this pandemic. Musicians, producers, and engineers have mixed, mastered and released an abundance of music. Many of the titles have been, and will be covered by our ...

Bruce Ackley / Fred Frith / Henry Kaiser / Aram Shelton: Unexpected Twins

Read "Unexpected Twins" reviewed by John Sharpe

Sometimes looking back can be a cause of regret, but it can sometimes inspire. Happily the latter is the case with Unexpected Twins by the doubled instrumentation of guitarists Henry Kaiser and Fred Frith and saxophonists Bruce Ackley and Aram Shelton. The original Twins emerged from the early free improvisation scene in North America in 1977, ...

Flavio Zanuttini Opacipapa: Born Baby Born

Read "Born Baby Born" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Born Baby Born è disco del trombettista/compositore Flavio Zanuttini dedicato al figlio di pochi mesi e alla moglie, presenta liner notes ad opera di Eugene Chadbourne, ed è pubblicato da Clean Feed. Ossia, in successione, la componente emozionale/affettiva della dedica, l'eccentricità e l'irriverenza del banjoista/chitarrista/cantante americano e la garanzia di un'etichetta diventata nel corso degli anni ...

Le Nuove Avventure di Phillip Johnston

Read "Le Nuove Avventure di Phillip Johnston" reviewed by Vic Albani

Il sessantaquattrenne signor Phillip Johnston è un avanguardista autentico da tempi non sospetti. Famoso ai più per essere stato uno dei fondatori di quella straordinaria fucina creativa che risponde al nome di Microscopic Septet dove passano o sono passati Joel Forrester, ma anche di John Zorn, Don Davis, Richard Dworkin, David Hofstra, Dave Sewelson, George Bishop, ...

Tutto Monk: l'omaggio di Miles Okazaki

Read "Tutto Monk: l'omaggio di Miles Okazaki" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

Monk con la chitarra? Perché no. Si era posto la stessa sferica domanda Elliott Sharp pochi anni fa, registrando in solo con l'acustica l'album Sharp? Monk? Sharp! Monk! per l'etichetta Clean Feed. Si trattava di una scelta di cinque brani, elaborati con il criterio della lunga divagazione e riflessione geniale. Inoltre, il discorso era stato affrontato ...

Duck Baker, un chitarrista tra passato e presente

Read "Duck Baker, un chitarrista tra passato e presente" reviewed by Mario Calvitti

Duck Baker è un chitarrista abbastanza difficile da inquadrare; mentre la tecnica che usa è rigorosamente fingerstyle, la musica che compone e interpreta spazia lungo tutta la storia del jazz, dai vecchi standard al modale, dal blues al bebop, dallo swing al free. I suoi interessi si estendono inoltre a tutta la American Music, che interpreta ...

Henry Kaiser: Friends & Heroes: Guitar Duets

Read "Friends & Heroes: Guitar Duets" reviewed by Roger Farbey

There a real Smörgåsbord of pieces on Henry Kaiser's Friends & Heroes: Guitar Duets. They are stylistically varied improvisational vignettes ranging from the eccentric “Three Languages" with Fred Frith to the heavy electric blues of “A Mighty Fire" with Knut Reiersrud. There's also prog(-ish) rock on “Harmony Jam" with Nels Cline and there's a kind of ...

Tania Chen, Henry Kaiser, Wadada Leo Smith, William Winant: Ocean of Storms

Read "Ocean of Storms" reviewed by Troy Dostert

In between stints as a videographer of below-ice underwater regions in Antarctica, guitarist Henry Kaiser maintains a remarkably busy agenda as an improvising musician. Here he's joined by Wadada Leo Smith, an occasional partner going back to their mutual connection with Eugene Chadbourne in the 1970s and later collaboration on their Yo Miles! album from 1998. ...

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.
