Barry Altschul’s 3Dom Factor feat. Jon Irabagon & Joe Fonda: Long Tall Sunshine

Read "Long Tall Sunshine" reviewed by Mark Corroto


The fourth release by Barry Altschul's 3Dom Factor, Long Tall Sunshine, evokes (in a weird way) the lyrics to “Helter Skelter" by The Beatles: “When I get to the bottom I go back to the top of the slide Where I stop and I turn and I go for a ride Till ...

Conference Call: Prism

Read "Prism" reviewed by Mark Corroto


Conference Call is a quartet, but could also be described as a trio+ because the core members—saxophonist and bass clarinetist Gebhard Ullmann, pianist Michael Jefry Stevens, and bassist Joe Fonda—have been touring and recording together for more than two decades. The plus moniker derives from the quartet's interchange of drummers. Early on, the seat was occupied ...

James Brandon Lewis, Code Girl, Junk Magic, Tim Berne & Gianni Lenoci

Read "James Brandon Lewis, Code Girl, Junk Magic, Tim Berne & Gianni Lenoci" reviewed by Maurice Hogue


When you're hot, you're hot, and that's the kind of year saxophonist James Brandon Lewis is having. He's been a part of several fine albums this year, and his recent quartet release, Molecular, for Intakt Records is a further step on his path to the top. He demonstrates his concept of “Molecular Systematic Music." Mary Halvorson ...

Conference Call: Prism

Read "Prism" reviewed by Jerome Wilson


Most jazz groups that stay together for a long time, such as The Modern Jazz Quartet or The Art Ensemble of Chicago, achieve a certain prominence. It is a surprise then to realize that the lesser-known band, Conference Call, has been around since 1999 and is here releasing its eighth album. The group's core ...

Conference Call: Prism

Read "Prism" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan


Prism, by the band Conference Call, sounds, on the set's opening tune, “F.J.D.," like a bunch of guys who might mug you: a brash, turbulent, confrontational crowd with a “we-don't-take-no-mess-from-nobody" approach to making music. Credit reedman Gebhard Ullmann with his grouchy, working-man-roused-from-his-afternoon-nap tenor sax sound, and the powerful bass (which you can feel in your bones) ...

Conference Call: Prism

Read "Prism" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic


During the roiling twenty years that Conference Call has willfully crisscrossed the broad Atlantic, the individual drummers haven't participated in all of the round trips. The pre-2020 drummer rotation was Matt Wilson, who left the band prior to its first tour in 2001 to prep for the delivery of triplets, Han Bennink, George Schuller, and Gerry ...

Gebhard Ullmann, Hans Lüdemann, Oliver Potratz, Eric Schaefer: Mikropuls

Read "Mikropuls" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro


Nel corso dei decenni, Gebhard Ullmann ci ha abituati particolarmente bene, per cui questo pur ottimo album, inciso nel corso del Jazzreis Berlin 2017 e condiviso, in ditta, con gli alti tre membri del quartetto che l'ha realizzato, ci pare normale, nella sua limitata progettualità, per un suono (di gruppo, ma anche individuale) magari anche più ...

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!
