Guillermo E. Brown: Freedom of Music

Read "Guillermo E. Brown: Freedom of Music" reviewed by AAJ Staff


From the 1995-2003 archive: This article first appeared at All About Jazz in April 2002. When it comes to music, Guillermo E. Brown is something of an omnivore. Whether it be calypso, out jazz, hip hop, or electronica, Brown is all ears. That makes the 25 year-old New Yorker something of an exception to ...

David S. Ware New Quartet: Théâtre Garonne, 2008

Read "Théâtre Garonne, 2008" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala


È giusto ricordare un gigante come David S. Ware. La quantità di energia e poesia che egli convoglia nella propria musica e nel suono poderoso del sax tenore (e stritch) lo accomuna a grandi come Sonny Rollins, John Coltrane, Albert Ayler. L'etichetta AUM Fidelity lo ricorda con merito nella collana a lui appositamente dedicata, denominata DSW-ARC ...

Matthew Shipp Announces Presidential Campaign

Read "Matthew Shipp Announces Presidential Campaign" reviewed by Mark Corroto


I like to think about Matthew Shipp's music in the same light as that of Eric Dolphy and Charlie Parker. If both artists, Bird and Dolphy, had the level of support from critics and listeners that they currently command while they were still alive, the pair would have been wealthy. Okay, that plus honest record companies ...

David S. Ware/Matthew Shipp: Live in Sant’Anna Arresi, 2004

Read "Live in Sant’Anna Arresi, 2004" reviewed by Karl Ackermann


Describing David S. Ware as a maverick would be a gimmicky shortcut around the depth of the late saxophonist's vision. Outside of John Coltrane we have not seen a Ware contemporary with more depth of spirituality, presented in such a visceral way. Similarly, Matthew Shipp employs a type of unimaginable creative mysticism that transcends technique and ...

David S. Ware/Matthew Shipp: Live in Sant'Anna Arresi 2004

Read "Live in Sant'Anna Arresi 2004" reviewed by Mark Corroto


In every mystical film we see, like A Sea Of Trees and A Dog's Purpose or book we read--A Sudden Light by Garth Stein or Life After Life by Kate Atkinson, the departed find a way to communicate with the living. As humans, we desire this experience. Fortunately, music affords us this opportunity at just about ...

Jazz keeps growing and evolving through all of its permutations and 2013 was another stellar year of music.

Dopo essere stato abbastanza presente nelle vicende concertistiche italiche di qualche anno fa [specialmente nel quartetto di David S. Ware e in alcuni progetti di Matthew Shipp], del batterista Guillermo E. Brown si erano un po' perse le tracce. Lo ritroviamo volentieri in questo trio con il bassista Keith Witty e il sassofonista francese Christophe Panzani, ...
