Pat Donaher: Occasionally

Read "Occasionally" reviewed by Jerome Wilson


Occasionally sees saxophonist Pat Donaher reflecting on a few milestones in his life to date. He does this by writing and performing compositions which are all dedicated to occasions and people that have been special to him. Donaher's varied set of tunes is played here by an excellent group with Jason Palmer on trumpet, ...

Simon Moullier Trio: Countdown

Read "Countdown" reviewed by Geno Thackara


Simon Moullier declares that one of his goals with his second recording is “to make the vibraphone disappear." To this end, he eschews the colorful guest list of his debut Spirit Song (Outside In, 2020) and puts his instrument at the head of an acoustic trio where it gets to fill out most of the melodic ...

Anthony Braxton: 12 COMP (ZIM) 2017

Read "12 COMP (ZIM) 2017" reviewed by Jerome Wilson


There had been just a slow trickle of recordings from Anthony Braxton, but all at once he made up for lost time with two major releases. One is a 13 CD box set of performances of standards. The other is a collection of recordings of original compositions that form part of his latest musical concept, ZIM ...

Ben Goldberg: Everything Happens To Be.

Read "Everything Happens To Be." reviewed by John Chacona


The music of Ben Goldberg seems to come from a place outside of time--or maybe it comes from several times simultaneously. Maybe it's the instruments he chooses; while the clarinet family has been on the comeback trail in jazz for a quarter century, it's a sound that invariably invokes the New Orleans of a century ago. ...

Jacques Schwarz-Bart's Afro-Caribbean Odyssey

Read "Jacques Schwarz-Bart's Afro-Caribbean Odyssey" reviewed by John Chacona


The saxophonist Jacques Schwarz-Bart was born on the Caribbean island of Guadeloupe in the shadow of La Grande Soufrière, which is both an active volcano and the highest mountain in the Lesser Antilles. Both aspects of that peak get to the heart of Schwarz-Bart's career, which has been characterized by rapid ascents and explosive creativity.

Dahveed Behroozi: Echoes

Read "Echoes" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan


On his sophomore effort, West Coast-based pianist Dahveed Behroozi goes into a deeply atmospheric mode on Echoes. He is joined by a pair of blue ribbon sidemen in this piano trio affair. Drummer Billy Mintz, as a drummer-texturalist, is in a league with past greats Paul Motian and Jon Christensen, creating off-kilter, unsettled weather systems of ...

Anthony Braxton: 12 COMP (ZIM) 2017

Read "12 COMP (ZIM) 2017" reviewed by Mark Corroto


James Joyce, Anthony Braxton, and a music fan walk into a bar. The bartender says, “what is this? Some kind of a joke?" Joyce (okay, he died in 1941 but stay tuned) indicates, “this is no joke, and please send over the sommelier." The three patrons have come to this establishment to discuss Braxton's latest project, ...

Roxana Amed: Collecting Memories

Read "Roxana Amed: Collecting Memories" reviewed by Leo Sidran


When singer/songwriter/educator Roxana Amed moved from her home in Argentina to the United States, she didn't walk. But she might as well have. She describes her new record as being like “a bag full of songs and memories" that she collected on her way from one shore to another. She seems to stand with one foot ...

Joe Lovano & Dave Douglas Soundprints: Other Worlds

Read "Other Worlds" reviewed by Jerome Wilson


Soundprints is a quintet that saxophonist Joe Lovano and trumpeter Dave Douglas assembled to carry on the spirit and philosophy of Wayne Shorter's music. Both of the band's previous albums featured compositions by Shorter himself but this is their first effort to contain only new material written by either Lovano or Douglas. As the ...

James Brandon Lewis: Jesup Wagon

Read "Jesup Wagon" reviewed by Mark Corroto


Most listeners have long since moved saxophonist James Brandon Lewis from the rising star category to one labeled virtuoso. But then, pianist Matthew Shipp signaled this status when he mentored Lewis early on and certainly bassist William Parker ordained his arrival by recording with the saxophonist on his major label debut, Divine Travels (Okeh, 2014). Parker ...

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!
