Lawnmower: Lawnmower II

Read "Lawnmower II" reviewed by Troy Collins

Drummer Luther Gray described in the liner notes to West, Lawnmower's 2010 Clean Feed debut, that the record was an attempt to reconcile the various genres he'd worked in throughout his career--an all-inclusive approach that could be traced back to the stylistically diverse music he listened to on a Walkman while mowing lawns in his youth. ...

Lawnmower: West

Read "West" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Eminent progressive jazz drummer Luther Gray rekindled the spirit of his youth when he listened to music, via his Walkman, while mowing the lawn. With a dual-guitar and bass-less lineup, this ensemble professes a unique identity as it intertwines blues, rock and the perimeters of free jazz into a cleverly designed forum. Here, the musicians inconspicuously ...

Geoff Farina - Massimo Pupillo - Michael Zerang: Still Life with Commercials

Read "Still Life with Commercials" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

La ricetta è per palati raffinati e al tempo stesso vogliosi di farsi raschiare: fuori i nomi! Geoff Farina, mente e chitarra dei Karate; Massimo Pupillo, bassista degli Zu e instancabile esploratore di spazi sonici taglienti; Michael Zerang, batterista chicagoano tra i più attivi e influenti. Un bel power trio, verebbe da dire, se non fosse ...

Ardecore: Chimera

Read "Chimera" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

A distanza di due anni dall'esordio omonimo, gli Ardecore giungono alla seconda prova discografica con idee rinnovate e mature: l'idea di rileggere il repertorio della canzone popolare romanesca in chiave avant-blues era stata un'intuizione felice, che aveva esaltato il carattere immediato e viscerale delle melodie. Ora, riproporre la stessa formula non sarebbe stato particolarmente interessante, ma ...

Geoff Farina / Luther Gray / Nate McBride: Out Trios, Volume 4: Almanac

Read "Out Trios, Volume 4: Almanac" reviewed by Karl A.D. Evangelista

There's a tremendous amount of ambivalence about the Atavistic label--all at once a paragon of progressivism, championing a rich legacy of forward-thinking free music, and among the foremost agents in the historicizing of free jazz. The atavism here suggests much more than an earlier, more primal passion; there is, more crucially, the sting of old processes ...

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.
