The Hall Overton Centennial & More

Read "The Hall Overton Centennial & More" reviewed by Marc Cohn

February birthdays on Gift & Messages with the Hall Overton centennial. We feature his arrangement of “Little Rootie Tootie" for the Thelonious Monk Orchestra, where Hall takes the piano solo from the Monk's first trio recording and orchestrates it for the entire big band! You'll hear both back-to-back. Stunning, for the arrangement and the playing, is ...

I nuovi progetti di Miho Hazama

Read "I nuovi progetti di Miho Hazama" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

È da mezzo secolo, ovvero dai tempi Toshiko Akiyoshi, che dal Giappone non emergeva una bandleader così talentuosa. A soli 33 anni Miho brucia letteralmente le tappe: presenta il terzo disco a capo del suo collettivo M_Unit Dancer in Nowhere e, quasi in contemporanea e sempre per la Sunnyside Records, la sua personale rilettura dei classici ...

John Beasley: Monk'estra, Vol. 2

Read "Monk'estra, Vol. 2" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Dopo il primo volume (Monk'estra vol.1, Mack Avenue 2016), John Beasley amplia l'organico e invita nuovi ospiti per un'altra rivisitazione del pianeta Monk. Galvanizzato dalle ottime accoglienze del debutto, il bandleader presenta nuovi estrosi arrangiamenti dal classico songbook del pianista. In effetti il vocabolario orchestrale monkiano è quasi tutto da costruire se si eccettuano i progetti ...

Read "Nuove Orchestre Alla Ribalta" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Da anni non si vedevano all'opera tanti nuovi ensemble, sia negli Stati Uniti che in Europa. Le cinque formazioni che presentiamo spaziano da quella giovanile come l'italiana New Talents Jazz Orchestra guidata da Mario Corvini (Extempora) alla big band di John Beasley ricca di stelle (Monk'estra -Vol. 1); dai progetti norvegesi del pianista Rune Klakegg (Fjon) ...

John Coltrane's Music Gets New Life at Lincoln Center

Read "John Coltrane's Music Gets New Life at Lincoln Center" reviewed by Nick Catalano

In jazz history, the often ignored contributions of the great arranger/orchestrators can never be overestimated. It was Jelly Roll Morton's orchestral writing that enabled “Black Bottom Stomp" to soar. In trumpeter Miles Davis' Sketches of Spain (Columbia, 1960), it was Gil Evans' pen that created the magic. At Town Hall, it was Hall Overton's arrangements that ...

Thelonious Monk Redux

Read "Thelonious Monk Redux" reviewed by Raul d'Gama Rose

Perhaps there are no better contemporary homages to pianist and composer Thelonious Monk than the ones re-imagined by soprano saxophonist Steve Lacy and trombonist Roswell Rudd, as well as by pianist Misha Mengelberg. But the greatest of all is the short one by composer and pianist Heiner Stadler. That seminal album--Tribute to Bird and Monk (Tomato, ...

Sam Stephenson: A "Loft-y" Vision of Jazz

Read "Sam Stephenson: A "Loft-y" Vision of Jazz" reviewed by Victor L. Schermer

When, in 1997, writer, scholar, and archivist Sam Stephenson serendipitously came across audio tapes, photographs and other documents involving jazz musicians congregating in photographer W. Eugene Smith's Manhattan loft in the late 1950s and early 1960s, he was surprised as anyone. The wall of cartons had been unopened since before Smith's death in 1978. Stephenson and ...

Four In One: Monk From Four Different Angles

Read "Four In One: Monk From  Four Different Angles" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Superstitions tend to hold sway over many, otherwise, rational people. Plenty of us avoid walking under ladders, knock on wood and partake in countless other rituals that, while lacking in sound reasoning, certainly make us feel better and bring us comfort in our daily lives. Brides-to-be even fall into this category and believe that it will ...

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.
