Sylvie Courvoisier Trio: Free Hoops

Read "Free Hoops" reviewed by Troy Dostert

With her idiosyncratic mixture of mystery and mirth, and a seamless conjoining of jazz and classical musical vocabularies, pianist Sylvie Courvoisier has carved an enviable niche for herself. She not only possesses impeccable technique, but her voice as a composer is just as formidable, whether in partnerships with fellow mavericks like Mary Halvorson, Evan Parker, or ...

Ruben Machtelinckx / Joachim Badenhorst / Bert Cools / Toma Gouband: Porous Structures

Read "Porous Structures" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Is there such a thing as emo jazz? If not, then Ruben Machtelinckx's quartet has produced a new genre of creative and improvised music. We're not talking screaming post-punk guitars. Porous Structures is an acoustic affair that relies on delicate and sparse sounds. And maybe, just maybe, it's what the world needs now. Machtelinckx ...

Evan Parker: Crepuscule In Nickelsdorf 

Read "Crepuscule In Nickelsdorf " reviewed by Mark Corroto

Excise the notion of virtual reality and AI as the force behind the music heard on Crepuscule In Nickelsdorf by Evan Parker and Matthew Wright's Trance Map+. Undoubtedly you might be tempted to have this thought by surveying the instrumentation, which is chock-full of sampling and electronics. Let's reserve those thoughts for a listen to this ...

Liudas Mockūnas: Hydro 2

Read "Hydro 2" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Hydro 2 is water music, but it's not to be confused with the orchestral pieces composed by George Frideric Handel back in the early 18th century. Lithuanian saxophonist Liudas Mockūnas is headed even further back in time, back to some Darwinian vision of evolution from the murky primordial seas, forward to our bipedal momentum. Note: If ...

Iluso Records: DIY from two dreamers

Read "Iluso Records: DIY from two dreamers" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Australian drummer Michael Caratti and Spanish-born New York-based guitarist Álvaro Domene founded the record label Iluso in 2013 to release their quartet recording Gran Masa. The pair found they shared similar interests while in school at Middlesex University in London. And why not put out their own music? That way they could control the content and ...

Alexander von Schlippenbach / Globe Unity Orchestra: Globe Unity - 50 Years

Read "Globe Unity - 50 Years" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Pianist Alexander von Schlippenbach's Globe Unity Orchestra (GUO) employs a similar head-scratching process to that utilized to make geuze, a much-treasured Belgian beer. Both elicit the “how did they do that?" question, and both seem to be a gift from Mother Nature. Schlippenbach brings together a choice assemblage of improvisers, like the ingredients of guesze (wheat ...

John Escreet: The Unknown

Read "The Unknown" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Stepping into the void without a map, compass, or guide can be an incredibly scary experience. But the very same scenario can also be liberating. Musicians freed of the shackles of preconceived ideas are the ones, after all, who speak the lingua franca of jazz--improvisation, that is--in its purest dialect. And improvisation doesn't get any truer ...

Jazz in the UK now

Read "Jazz in the UK now" reviewed by Sammy Stein

The jazz scene in the UK is buzzing at the moment. Clubs whose managers not so long ago were faced with the difficult decision whether to continue offering new sounds to a dwindling audience or turn themselves into a wine bar--offering small slices of live music to appease their consciences perhaps--are finding it was worth hanging ...

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.
