Chris Pitsiokos: Silver Bullet in the Autumn of Your Years

Read "Silver Bullet in the Autumn of Your Years" reviewed by Don Phipps


Adventurous, hair-raising, mind-bending, dense, fibrous, layered, hallucinogenic, twisted. These are the words that come to mind when listening to the excellent but challenging music on Chris Pitsiokos's album Silver Bullet in the Autumn of Your Years. Pitsiokos' compositions often sound like a musical transcription of the trippiest parts of William Burrough's “Naked Lunch." The result? An ...

Brandon Seabrook: Convulsionaries

Read "Convulsionaries" reviewed by Don Phipps


This exciting freewheeling, free-playing, ear-stretching, mind-expanding set from composer / guitarist Brandon Seabrook strives for new ground in music--a hybrid of modern classical idioms and experimental jazz. It succeeds. The music stretches what one might conceive of as “jazz." Joined by Henry Fraser on bass and Daniel Levin on cello, Seabrook accomplishes his breakthrough ...

Logan Strosahl: Up Go We

Read "Up Go We" reviewed by Budd Kopman


Duke Ellington famously said, There are two kinds of music. Good music, and the other kind". Creative Improvised Music really has no boundaries, and there is virtually nothing that cannot influence the final result. It is quite possible for the adventurous listener to play a different album every day for a decade and never hear a ...

Nick Sanders Trio: You Are A Creature

Read "You Are A Creature" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


It's sad to say, but many newly-formed piano trios tend to suffer by comparison before they ever get off the ground. So many of these groups consciously or unwittingly walk along well-trod paths, referencing legendary jazz figures or following trails of sonic breadcrumbs dropped by latter day lodestars like Brad Mehldau, The Bad Plus, or Jason ...

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!
