Eyvind Kang

Eyvind Kang's prodigious recording career is surprising considering it's less than a decade old.

He is one of the most original and exciting violinists currently performing in the underground, a fact cemented all the more by his accomplished solo recordings.

Gordon Grdina Septet: Resist

Read "Resist" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

It takes a leap of unconditional faith to enter wholly the resistance. A mindset steadied for the long haul, readied for the next. On his third, integral, must-listen-to release of 2020, Canadian oudist/guitarist/composer Gordon Grdina grandly, darkly, intently, espouses all that and more. Hellbent on creating art as a political act, the sprawling, at times majestic ...

Wayne Horvitz: Those Who Remain

Read "Those Who Remain" reviewed by Mario Calvitti

Conosciuto principalmente per le sue partecipazioni a vari progetti di John Zorn (in particolare nel gruppo Naked City), le collaborazioni con Bill Frisell, Bobby Previte e altri, e i gruppi da lui guidati come Zony Mash (e la versione acustica Sweeter Than the Day), Pigpen e Presidents, il tastierista Wayne Horvitz può vantare anche una intensa, ...

Andrew Cyrille: Lebroba

Read "Lebroba" reviewed by Mario Calvitti

Il nuovo lavoro del batterista Andrew Cyrille per ECM, che segue di due anni The Declaration of Musical Independence, il suo debutto da leader per la label tedesca, lo vede nuovamente affiancato al chitarrista Bill Frisell, ma in un contesto strumentale abbastanza diverso. Non più un quartetto con contrabbasso e tastiere, ma un trio completato dalla ...

Gregg Belisle-Chi: I Sang To You And The Moon

Read "I Sang To You And The Moon" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Vengono da Seattle e hanno meno di trent'anni i componenti di questo quartetto dalla fisionomia singolare: una cantante accompagnata da chitarra, tromba e contrabbasso. Come si può intuire dall'organico, il clima è cameristico e l'intimismo folk delle musiche di Gregg Belisle-Chi impregna tutto l'album. Anche se è scritto in caratteri microscopici sul retrocopertina, il chitarrista ha ...

Bill Frisell: A Portrait A Film by Emma Franz 2017 Non è facile fornire in meno di un paio d'ore di filmato un ritratto convincente ed esaustivo di un musicista versatile e multiforme come il chitarrista Bill Frisell, che nel corso degli ultimi quaranta anni ha contribuito nuovi punti di riferimento ...

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.
