Pharoah Sanders: An Alternative Top Ten Albums To Feed Your Head

Read "Pharoah Sanders: An Alternative Top Ten Albums To Feed Your Head" reviewed by Chris May


Fellow tenor-wielding sonic adventurer Albert Ayler famously described his own and Pharoah Sanders' relationships with their mentor John Coltrane thus: “Trane was the Father, Pharoah was the Son, I am the Holy Ghost." The epigram goes some way to capturing the scorched-earth ferocity of much, though not all, of Sanders' music in the 1960s. But Ayler ...

Sao Paulo Underground: Cantos Invisíveis

Read "Cantos Invisíveis" reviewed by Troy Collins


Democratically led by Chicago-based sound explorer Rob Mazurek, São Paulo Underground has been defying genre conventions and musical boundaries for almost a decade. Originally formed with percussionist Mauricio Takara and keyboardist Guilherme Granado during Mazurek's sojourn in Brazil (2000-2005), the ensemble's membership has undergone a subtle change on its fifth album with the addition of Swiss-born ...

Sao Paulo Underground: Cantos Invisíveis

Read "Cantos Invisíveis" reviewed by Mark Sullivan


Cantos Invisíveis translates from Portuguese as “invisible corners/songs" or “disappearing corners/songs:" a fitting title for trans-national music that often seems to come from everywhere at once. The international trio's electro-acoustic sound blends music from North and South America, Africa and Asia, including stylistic references from traditional folk, modern jazz, rock and electronica. It's a dense, communal ...

Sao Paulo Underground: Cantos Invisiveis

Read "Cantos Invisiveis" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero


Suoni da galassie lontane, scie cosmiche che trasportano in altri mondi, sfrigolii di elettroni che invadono lo spazio fisico, riti sciamanici e nenie incantatorie, suggestioni tribali e distorsioni industriali. Una giungla intricata di sonorità acustiche ed elettroniche nella quale scrittura e improvvisazione sfumano i contorni per trasformarsi in visione. È il nuovo mondo creato da Rob ...

Rob Mazurek/Emmett Kelly: Alien Flower Sutra

Read "Alien Flower Sutra" reviewed by Karl Ackermann


It's nothing new for Rob Mazurek to travel the road less taken. What's surprising is that he continues to locate so many alternate routes of expression; his creative compass pointing in directions rarely seen by others. Alien Flower Sutra , a (mostly) duo outing with Emmett Kelly, explores yet another artistic set of elements that should ...

Bologna Jazz Festival Torrione Jazz Club Ferrara 20.11.2015 Fissiamo una data: gennaio 2007.

Saalfelden 2015

Read "Saalfelden 2015" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero


Memorabile edizione la trentaseiesima del Saalfelden Jazz Festival. Forse il caldo più consono ai mari del sud che ad una località alpina ha sciolto anche gli animi più rigidi, ha favorito la libera circolazione delle idee, ha creato un clima di condivisione e stimolo artistico. Forse gli dei della musica hanno soffiato un vento benevolo sulle ...

Rob Mazurek and Black Cube SP: Return the Tides: Ascension Suite and Holy Ghost

Read "Return the Tides: Ascension Suite and Holy Ghost" reviewed by Enrico Bettinello


La forte sincerità che si percepisce nella musica di Rob Mazurek (caratteristica che immagino anche chi non ama troppo il cornettista chicagoano faticherà a negargli) è qualcosa che va a volte oltre l'intenzione. È il caso ad esempio del flusso emozionale, catartico, densissimo, di Return the Tides: Ascension Suite and Holy Ghost, disco che ...

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!
