Weird Beard: Orientation

Read "Orientation" reviewed by Troy Dostert

On a recording that exemplifies the “less is more" approach to music-making, Orientation finds Florian Egli's Weird Beard quartet crafting dreamy soundscapes that derive their appeal from the interstices between the notes. With disarmingly simple tunes that seem at times to float on a delicate ether, alto saxophonist/clarinetist Egli, guitarist Dave Gisler, bassist Martina Berther and ...

Weird Beard: Away

Read "Away" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Questo quartetto svizzero è guidato sapientemente dal saxofonista Florian Egli e si avvale della preziosa collaborazione dell'ottimo chitarrista Dave Gisler che ricordiamo già autore di prove convincenti, sempre in progetti targati Unit Records, meritoria etichetta che andrebbe presa ad esempio anche dalle nostre parti. Completano l'organico il bassista Valentin Dietrich e il batterista Rico Baumann, sempre ...


Lucerne Jazz Orchestra: Still Now

Read "Still Now" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Questa bella orchestra svizzera non sfugge alle influenze ormai dominanti nel mondo delle larghe formazioni jazzistiche contemporanee. I riferimenti sono a Gil Evans filtrati dalla sensibilità tutta femminile di Maria Schneider (che a sua volta è stata debitamente influenzata anche da Bob Brookmeyer).

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
