Nona Hendryx and Gary Lucas: The World Of Captain Beefheart

Read "The World Of Captain Beefheart" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

Gary Lucas has been a long time fan of the one-of-a-kind mutant rock-jazz-blues of Captain Beefheart. This led to his being part of Beefheart's Magic Band in the '80s and to his revisiting the music after Beefheart's 1985 retirement in various formats including a raucous jazz tribute band, Fast 'n' Bulbous. This time he goes back ...

Gary Lucas, Enikö Szabó, Tóni Dezsö: Pearly Clouds

Read "Pearly Clouds" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Del sessantaquattrenne Gary Lucas, da decenni guru di un chitarrismo che al di là delle varie mode terminologiche ci sentiremmo di definire veramente “trasversale," sappiamo parecchio. Molto meno dei suoi due partner in questo singolare album, in cui emerge la sua anima più prossima al song nella sua accezione più larga. Enikö Szabó ...

Brooklyn Blowhards: Brooklyn Blowhards

Read "Brooklyn Blowhards" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Lo spirito di Albert Ayler volteggia amabilmente sopra questo album (cinque brani suoi più svariati traditionals del tipo che il sassofonista di Cleveland amava riesumare a suo modo), nella rivisitazione dell'ottetto capitanato da Jeff Lederer (suoi tutti gli arrangiamenti, la produzione, e anche un brano, il penultimo, “The Language of Resistance"). Vi campeggia, ...

Jeff Lederer's Brooklyn Blowhards: Brooklyn Blowhards

Read "Brooklyn Blowhards" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Imagine seeing a despondent Albert Ayler walking around Brooklyn on a cold November day in 1970, with his tenor saxophone under his arm. Some say he threw himself into the East River, a suicide by drowning. His loss, our loss, was one a true original voices in jazz. Now picture Ayler with a copy ...

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.
