Harmen Fraanje

Pianist Harmen Fraanje (Roosendaal, 1976) has already been showered with prizes, has worked with too many famous musicians to mention here, has performed in all of the most far-flung (jazz) corners of the world, leads nine of his own musical projects, and is also a sideman in various other groups. He is open to many different kinds of music, which he always irrepressibly translates into his own vocabulary.

Mats Eilertsen Trio & Trio Mediaeval: Memorabilia

Read "Memorabilia" reviewed by Friedrich Kunzmann

Talk of an album sounding highly reminiscent of something that could be released on Manfred Eicher's ECM label is quite common. But it does not come as a surprise anymore that much of today's music shares similar melancholic and minimalist contemporary leanings with the aesthetic found on the pioneering Munich-based label. However, this debut date, led ...

Björk: Jazz Muse & Hyperballadeer

Read "Björk: Jazz Muse & Hyperballadeer" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

If jazz is, as someone put it, the sound of surprise, then it makes complete sense that countless musicians have become enamored with the music of Björk. Like the most innovative jazz musicians, Bjork is a restless artist who tries to continuously reinvent herself, often blending familiar sources in completely unprecedented ways, and deliberately challenging the ...

Yonathan Avishai Joys and Solitudes ECM Records 2019 Though Yonathan Avishai isn't exactly in solitude on his debut as leader, half the recording is well suited to quiet times away from the world, or perhaps being enjoyed with minimal company—the trio at hand is comfortable with silence as any ECM ensemble ...

Read "And Then Comes The Night" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

Michael Moore: Live in Chicago / Felix Quartet

Read "Michael Moore: Live in Chicago / Felix Quartet" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

Si aggiungono due nuovi lavori al sostanzioso catalogo Ramboy, l'etichetta autogestita dal sassofonista e clarinettista Michael Moore, fondata nel 1991, che documenta l'attività ampia e multiforme del musicista. La conoscenza di Moore è forse maggiormente legata alla sua presenza nel Clusone Trio, formazione nata nel 1988 con Ernst Reijseger al violoncello e Han Bennink alla batteria ...

Mats Eilertsen: Rubicon

Read "Rubicon" reviewed by John Kelman

It's no news to learn that we're the confluence of our many experiences: life, love, music....everything that we are comes from where we've been, what we've done, what we've experienced. That said, it doesn't mean that we can't move in completely new directions or try something completely foreign to us. Still, it's almost impossible to do ...

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.
