Euphorium_freakestra: Grande Casino

Read "Grande Casino" reviewed by Mark Corroto

It may be fitting that the very first translation of James Joyce's Ulysses was from English into German. What, you ask, does this have to do with the three- disc release Grande Casino by Euphorium_freakestra? It's not a suggestion to read (or attempt to read) Ulysses, a book so dense in its 730 pages that it ...

Gunter Baby Sommer: Baby's Party

Read "Baby's Party" reviewed by Mark Corroto

The music from the German duo of Günter Baby Sommer and Till Brönner is best described as gestural, meaning the pair utilizes posture and body movement to effect an oratory--in this case the somatic nature of Sommer's drum and percussion work and the flow of breath through Brönner's trumpet and flugelhorn.

Raymond MacDonald: Man with Two Brains

Read "Raymond MacDonald: Man with Two Brains" reviewed by Duncan Heining

Recent winning entries in the format have included sets from the Anglo Polish Riverloam Trio, Thomas Borgmann's excellent US-German unit, and Evan Parker's ...

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.
