J. Peter Schwalm / Arve Henriksen: Neuzeit

Read "Neuzeit" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Sometimes making music is more than assembling and coordinating sounds that result (hopefully) in pleasing results. Neuzeit, a collaboration between German electro-acoustic composer J.

Stephan Thelen: World Dialogue

Read "World Dialogue" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Stephan Thelen's compositions for his band Sonar have a minimalist groove that clearly relates to other groups in the experimental sphere like Swiss pianist and composer Nik Bärtsch's band Ronin.

Read "Sun Trance" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Markus Reuter has a reputation as a guitar shredding animal. He has been called a power trio kingpin, his artistry referred to as “fearless and ferocious." The cliche “not for the faint of heart" comes to mind on sets like Truce (Moonjune Records, 2020) and Shapeshifter (Moonjune Records, (2020). But he has a softer side, one ...

Read "Jerry Granelli: Updating Music of Past Heroes" reviewed by R.J. DeLuke

"I've earned the privilege of not playing anything I don't want to play," says drummer Jerry Granelli, whose past is replete with the names of many greats in jazz for whom he supplied rhythmic support--sometimes force--over several decades. “That used to be a fear," he adds, “You figured if you turned something down, the ...

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.
