Anishana: Corners of the Sky

Read "Corners of the Sky" reviewed by Jack Bowers

What a pleasant surprise. When a group named Anishana records an album built around Native American themes and concepts, the inclination is to withhold judgment while preparing for the worst. Yes, Anishana is an Algonquin-derived term meaning “where do you come from?" And yes, Anishana loosely bases the music in Corners of the Sky on Native ...

Downtown Boston's Jazz Swarms for Jazz Week from JazzBoston

Ken Field graciously shared his sense of the role of swarming. It really turns on the reappearance of music in the public square without the conventions of venue performance. “Since the earliest days of my musical career I have always been attracted to the choral and contrapuntal sound of multiple iterations of the same instrument.

Hilary Noble & Rebecca Cline: Enclave

Read "Enclave" reviewed by Michael P. Gladstone

This album offers some very good Latin (and world) jazz performed by two Americans and their quartet but loses some points, in my opinion, for its free jazz aspirations. Hilary Noble, of Boston origin, has studied with George Garzone and logged some good experience with New York City Latin bandleader Bobby Sanabria. This is his second ...

Hilary Noble: Noble Savage

Read "Noble Savage" reviewed by Jack Bowers

One has to admire the energy that is poured so lavishly into many albums of Afro-Cuban Jazz. Noble Savage bristles with vitality as it explores the many facets of Caribbean-influenced music, with side trips to Australia, home of saxophonist / conguero Hilary Noble’s forebears, and New Orleans. Much of that firepower springs from drummer / percussionist ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
