Read "Unification" reviewed by Troy Dostert

Jazz musicians derive inspiration from all kinds of sources--but there probably aren't many who are inclined to build an entire series of songs around concepts connected to Jungian psychology. Trumpeter and composer Greg Duncan is quite earnest in this endeavor, however, and on this release he gives musical expression to a number of aspects of Carl ...

Greg Duncan & The Individuation Quintet: Unification

Read "Unification" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Let's start at the dénouement. Trumpeter Greg Duncan and his Individuation Quintet close their premier release with “Say Hey," a composition Branford Marsalis wrote for director Spike Lee's 1990 film Mo' Better Blues.

Trumpeter Greg Duncan's Chicago, Barcelona Connections is a spicy dish with duende to spare, but it's not to be mistaken for generic Latin jazz; this is flamenco jazz in a fairly pure form. The Chicago-based horn man experienced his flamenco awakening during a stay in Spain between 2009 and 2010, and the music on Chicago, Barcelona ...

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.
