Masabumi Kikuchi: Hanamichi The Final Studio Recording

Read "Hanamichi  The Final Studio Recording" reviewed by Pierre Giroux


Masabumi Kikuchi is not the kind of jazz pianist who just strikes the keys to produce a sound. He has a Zen-like approach to the instrument by making it an extension of himself, and thus both constructs and hears the music produced as a different form factor. There are and were other contemporary pianists such as ...

Read "Albert Ayler. Un ardito sogno futuristico" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala


Come una meteora, Albert Ayler ha attraversato il firmamento della musica neroamericana, dal 1962 al 1970. E ha lasciato il segno. Una traccia presente e attiva tutt'oggi, nell'operato di numerosi musicisti che dedicano il proprio lavoro all'improvvisazione e alla ricerca di un'autenticità dell'espressione artistica. L'apparizione del sassofonista nel mondo del jazz, una vera epifania, ...

Nicola Conte: Good Juju From Italy’s Spiritual Jazz Shaman

Read "Nicola Conte: Good Juju From Italy’s Spiritual Jazz Shaman" reviewed by Chris May


Ever since his debut album, the acid-jazz masterpiece Jet Sounds (Schema), in 2000, the producer, composer, DJ and guitarist Nicola Conte has kept the jazz world guessing by constantly moving the goal posts. The trumpeter Miles Davis famously said, “I always gotta change. It's like a curse." But with Conte, it feels more like a blessing, ...

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!
