Los Lobos: Native Sons

Read "Native Sons" reviewed by Doug Collette


Unusual as it may seem for a veteran band like Los Lobos to display the artistic humility of Native Sons, only a single original song appears here surrounded by a diverse round of cover material by artists based in and around their home city of Los Angeles. It's a generosity of spirit that actually recalls an ...

Amy Helm: What The Flood Leaves Behind

Read "What The Flood Leaves Behind" reviewed by Doug Collette


Amy Helm possesses all the inner direction, motivation and independence of her father, Levon, the drummer and vocalist for The Band. As evidence of those inherent character traits, she projects her personality with no traces of self-consciousness not only in her collaborations--Sisters of the Strawberry Moon's Solstice (New West Records, 2019), produced by the North Mississippi ...

Grateful Dead: Grateful Dead (Skull & Roses)

Read "Grateful Dead (Skull & Roses)" reviewed by Doug Collette


Grateful Dead, the second album of concert recordings released by the iconic band for Warner Brothers Records, resides squarely in the sweet spot between the expansive likes of its corollary, Live Dead (Warner Bros., 1969) and the economical studio recordings this group issued in between, Workingman's Dead (Warner Bros., 1970) and American Beauty (Warner Bros., 1970). ...

Denny Zeitlin & George Marsh: Telepathy: Duo Electro-Acoustic Improvisations

Read "Telepathy: Duo Electro-Acoustic Improvisations" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan


Pianist Denny Zeitlin's recording career began with his contribution to flutist Jeremy Steig's 1963 album Flute Fever (Columbia Records). Then Zeitlin struck out on his own, creating over five-plus decades worth of record releases on Columbia Records, Decca/ECM, Windham Hill, MaxJazz (and more) before shifting into overdrive when he connected with Sunnyside Records in 2009, on ...

Christoph Irniger's Open City: Retracing The Tenor's Evolution On Intakt Records

Read "Christoph Irniger's Open City: Retracing The Tenor's Evolution On Intakt Records" reviewed by Friedrich Kunzmann


A sound poet of sorts, Swiss tenor saxophonist Christoph Irniger has gained quite a reputation for his lyrical tone and creative penmanship, more often than not responsible for the majority of the memorable repertoire he records and performs. The poetic nature of his music is owed not only to the artists that have influenced him over ...

The Complete Louis Armstrong Columbia & RCA Victor Studio Sessions 1946-66

Read "The Complete Louis Armstrong Columbia & RCA Victor Studio Sessions 1946-66" reviewed by Skip Heller


Louis Armstrong officially returned to small band leadership May 17, 1947 via a triumphant concert at Town Hall that was less comeback than reaffirmation. It was even the dawn of his second great period, full of recordings that stood tall with his epochal 1920's output, and the subsequently-assembled Louis Armstrong and his All Stars would immediately ...

The Band: Stage Fright 50th Anniversary Edition 2CD

Read "Stage Fright 50th Anniversary Edition 2CD" reviewed by Doug Collette


In order to more fully appreciate the 50th anniversary edition of the Band's third studio album, Stage Fright (Capitol, 1970), it is best to resist the temptation to go off on tangents regarding the revisionism visited upon the release. The supervision administered by the group's guitarist/songwriter Robbie Robertson may be as questionable as that visited upon ...

John Hiatt with The Jerry Douglas Band: Leftover Feelings

Read "Leftover Feelings" reviewed by Doug Collette


Leftover Feelings is not the first such group collaboration in John Hiatt's varied and lengthy career—-the North Mississippi Allstars were integral to Master of Disaster (New West Records, 2005). But there's an even more unusual kinship in play here between this gifted songwriter and The Jerry Douglas Band, if only because this LP is even more ...

Phisqa: Pachamama

Read "Pachamama" reviewed by Ian Patterson


Time has marched on since the eponymous debut of Phisqa, (Self-Produced, 2013), the band led by Peruvian drummer Cote Calmet. Then based in Dublin, Calmet placed the multinational quintet under wraps when his CEO Experiment—initially a trio, co-founded with Leopoldo Osio and Peter Erdei—started to take off. A promising debut recording, which also featured the great ...

Steve Miller: Live! Breaking Ground August 3, 1977

Read "Live! Breaking Ground August 3, 1977" reviewed by Doug Collette


Given the careerist bent of Steve Miller around the time of Live! Breaking Ground: August 3, 1977, not to mention the popularity of concert releases in the wake of Frampton Comes Alive! (A&M,1976), it is altogether surprising the Space Cowboy did not issue a formal concert album until 1983. Miller came back from a self-imposed hiatus ...

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!
