Hilmar Jensson: Transparence

Read "Transparence" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic


Given that not one of the eight tracks definingTransparence, the darkly compelling debut from Norway's Hitra, runs longer than six minutes, the quartet covers a lot of ground.

A pochi mesi dall'uscita di Transparence, disco d'esordio del quartetto Hitra, abbiamo avuto la fortuna di poter discutere con il pianista di origini pugliesi dei temi e delle idee all'origine dei suoi progetti passati, presenti e futuri, ...

Ruben Machtelinckx & Linus: Belgian Experimental Music, Strings Attached

Read "Ruben Machtelinckx & Linus: Belgian Experimental Music, Strings Attached" reviewed by Mark Sullivan


Belgian guitarist/composer Ruben Machtelinckx has built an impressive catalog of recordings as a leader since graduating from the Royal Conservatory of Antwerp in 2010. He tends to work in groups with no drummer, a chamber jazz approach that suits his lyrical, sometimes minimalist compositions well. His guitar style is tasteful and devoid of flashy pyrotechnics: even ...

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!
