Adam Rogers' Dice Trio at Hong Kong Arts Center

Read "Adam Rogers' Dice Trio at Hong Kong Arts Center" reviewed by Rob Garratt


Adam Rogers' Dice Trio Shouson Theatre, Hong Kong Arts Center Jazz World Live Series Hong Kong SAR May 28, 2018 As the scraggly haze of copiously denim-clad, baseball cap and ponytail-touting figures assembled onstage, Adam Rogers' Dice Trio bore the indifferent appearance of a small town bar band--which was not ...

Nate Smith: Kinfolk: Postcards from Everywhere

Read "Kinfolk: Postcards from Everywhere" reviewed by Mike Jacobs


To get right to it, rarely does a first effort as leader come along that is so worthy of attention. With Postcards From Everywhere, Nate Smith has offered a many-faceted jewel whose luster only grows with re-examination. On one level, this is indeed an album that satisfies the requisite expectations for a debut from ...

Greg Skaff: Soulmation

Read "Soulmation" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


Guitarist Greg Skaff is all about the grease, grit, and grooves on Soulmation. It's a logical extension of his previous work--guitar-fronted organ group dates like East Harlem Skyline (Zoho Music, 2009) and 116th & Park (Zoho Music, 2012)--but it's a tad heavier, raunchier, and funkier than anything Skaff threw us on those records. His approach here ...

Chris Potter Underground Orchestra: Imaginary Cities

Read "Chris Potter Underground Orchestra: Imaginary Cities" reviewed by Eric J. Iannelli


Writing jazz music, says Chris Potter, is “a bit of a zen exercise." “A lot of what you're thinking about when you're writing is the stuff that's not there. You're thinking about the solos and the way the band is going to play it together--things that can't be notated." For Imaginary Cities, ...

Chris Potter Underground Orchestra: Imaginary Cities

Read "Imaginary Cities" reviewed by Ian Patterson


Given the globe-trotting touring on the back of Unity Band (Nonesuch Records, 2012) and Kin ()(Nonesuch Records, 2014) with Pat Metheny's Unity Group it's a wonder that Chris Potter has had time for his own projects. Yet with The Sirens (ECM, 2013)--an acoustic suite inspired by Homer's Odyssey--Potter was in the composing form of his life. ...

Chris Potter Underground Orchestra: Imaginary Cities

Read "Chris Potter Underground Orchestra: Imaginary Cities" reviewed by John Kelman


While he is, perhaps, best-known as a reed and woodwind multi-instrumentalist of tremendous power and versatility--the torch-bearer and logical successor, even, to the late, great Michael Brecker--Chris Potter has also demonstrated remarkable breadth as a bandleader and composer. It's hard to imagine that it's been only 23 years since the 44 year-old first came onto the ...

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!
