Ghalia Volt: One Woman Band

Read "One Woman Band" reviewed by Doug Collette

As pictured on the cover of One Woman Band, songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Ghalia Volt radiates such a commanding presence that it's hard not to imagine the array of musical instruments displayed alongside her coming to life all on their own. In a very real sense, though, that's exactly what the Brussels Belgium-born blues-woman accomplishes on this third album ...

Paul Desmond: The Complete 1975 Toronto Recordings

Read "The Complete 1975 Toronto Recordings" reviewed by C. Andrew Hovan

Even if he had never played another note following the break-up of the Dave Brubeck group in 1967, alto saxophonist Paul Desmond would have entered the history books as one of music's most brilliant improvisers. During his 17 years with Brubeck, Desmond proved himself to be an indispensable part of that quartet with a wistful and ...

Dwiki Dharmawan: Hari Ketiga

Read "Hari Ketiga" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Hari Ketiga is presented as a logbook of a voyage from the Earth to the moon, and beyond, to contact with music from distant planetary systems—a sprawling outer space improv opera as dense and difficult to fathom as Frank Herbert's first three Dune novels, or Samuel Delany's Dhalgren. It began simply enough: Leonardo Pavkovic ...

Grateful Dead: American Beauty: 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition

Read "American Beauty: 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition" reviewed by Doug Collette

If it's true the Grateful Dead epitomize the counter culture of the Sixties, it's also true the iconic group embraced the following decade on its very own terms, at least at the outset of the period. Workingman's Dead (Warner Bros., 1970) represents an authoritative and confident statement of artistic purpose, while its companion piece, American Beauty ...

Olafur Arnalds: some kind of peace

Read "some kind of peace" reviewed by Nenad Georgievski

Amid a global pandemic that has put the world to a halt, Islandic composer Olafur Arnalds arrives with some kind of peace, his most ravishing work to date. Arnalds has always been a thoughtful artist who has worked with fertile concepts that have broadened his reach. That was most evident on his previous record re:member, where ...

Jimi Hendrix Experience: Live In Maui

Read "Live In Maui" reviewed by Doug Collette

It's been quite the circuitous route from the second official posthumous Jimi Hendrix release Rainbow Bridge (Reprise, 1971) to Music, Money, Madness... Live In Maui. And while video component of the 2020 Jimi Hendrix archive release seems like much ado about nothing in its examination of the aforementioned film, the concert content of the Experience reminds ...

Dave Mason: Alone Together Again

Read "Alone Together Again" reviewed by Doug Collette

At the time of its release in July of 1970, Dave Mason's debut solo album, Alone Together (Blue Thumb Records, 1970), was the proverbial perfect storm, a flash-point of both creative art and commerce that remains a singular object of fascination in the annals of contemporary rock. Produced by label co-founder Tommy LiPuma, in conjunction with ...

Dave Brubeck Quartet: Time OutTakes

Read "Time OutTakes" reviewed by Chris May

Few albums in jazz history are as giant as the Dave Brubeck Quartet's Time Out (Columbia, 1959). Deftly balancing experimentation with accessibility and containing amongst its many pleasures one of the most thrilling drum solos ever recorded, Time Out has become so familiar to us that the magnitude of its greatness has become near inaudible.

U2: All That You Can't Leave Behind 20th Anniversary Deluxe Edition (2CD)

Read "All That You Can't Leave Behind 20th Anniversary Deluxe Edition (2CD)" reviewed by Doug Collette

The music of U2 on All That You Can't Leave Behind is very much in keeping with the austere black and white graphics, preserved throughout the graphic design of this digipak as well as its enclosed twenty-four page booklet within. A distinct move away from the density of production experimentation on their three previous studio albums—Achtung ...

Bill Laswell / Opening Performance Orchestra / Iggy Pop / William S. Burroughs: The Acid Lands

Read "The Acid Lands" reviewed by Nenad Georgievski

The legendary literary outlaw and cult personality William Burroughs has had a lasting influence on literature, pop music, film, and contemporary art. Although a controversial figure due to his impenitent heroin addiction, occult dabbling, the spread of conspiracy theories, and firsthand experiences in the criminal underworlds, he still inspired musicians from The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Led ...

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!
