George Spanos: Dreams Beyond

Read "Dreams Beyond" reviewed by Glenn Astarita


Drummer George Spanos' exodus from Greece to New York City has resulted in a speedy indoctrination into its fertile nu-jazz scene, performing at The Stone and other popular venues with notables such as electronics wiz Ikue Mori and cellist Erik Friedlander. But Spanos has made the rounds in Europe and Canada, where disparate influences have cultivated ...

Lola Danza: The Island

Read "The Island" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


Vocalist Lola Danza has always been an original thinker, but that doesn't get you very far in a field crowded with people fitting that description. What makes Danza stand out is her strength of vision and steadfast commitment to following her muse, no matter how non-commercial it may be. With Janya (Evolver, 2011), Danza and her ...

Lola Danza: The Island

Read "The Island" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey


Singer/composer Lola Danza is not a multicultural artistic presence, she is a pan-cultural artistic presence. This is fully exploited on her ensemble recording, Janya (Evolver, 2011). Her singing and songwriting hover in the neighborhood of jazz because terms like “new age" and “world music" don't seem to quite cover it. Live Free (Evolver, 2009) was exactly ...

Janya: Janya

Read "Janya" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


Janya's sound is all about Korean-influenced music for the free jazz-loving soul. The members of this female foursome are all of Korean descent, and bring a free yet flowing sensibility to this seven-song program of original music. While the presence of instruments like gayageum, daegeum and janggo--a zither-like string instrument, bamboo transverse flute, ...

Janya: Janya

Read "Janya" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey


The name “Janya" can loosely be translated “genesis" or “beginning." In Sanskrit, it means “to be born" and in the Korean vernacular, “around dawn." Janya is both the ensemble name and debut recording title of four young Korean and Korean-American musicians attempting to cast Korean shamanic music in more modern terms than it was conceived. Korea ...

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!
