Gregg August Sextet: One Peace

Read "One Peace" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Hardbop e latin jazz. Sono i punti cardinali di questo secondo CD firmato da Gregg August, esponente di punta del jazz newyorkese contemporaneo. Dieci sono le tracce di questo bel lavoro, che altro non fa che confermare la completa cifra artistica del Nostro, peraltro brillante strumentista ed arrangiatore.

Gregg August Sextet: One Peace

Read "One Peace" reviewed by Michael P. Gladstone

When last heard from, Gregg August's debut, Late August (Iacuessa, 2005), left listeners with a smile for the bassist/composer's bipolar emphasis on Latin and hard bop interests. One Peace indicates a new direction for August. While Late August took advantage of a number of high profile guest musicians including saxophonist Frank Wess ...

Gregg August Sextet: One Peace

On One Peace he enhances a hard bop template with complex chord structures, layering of inimitable horn arrangements and echoes from other musical genres. On “Nastissimo for example, trumpeter John Bailey, altoist Myron Walden and tenor man Stacy Dillard play almost ...


Gregg August: Late August

Read "Late August" reviewed by Terrell Kent Holmes

Bassist Gregg August's pedigree is hard bop, and his trademark compositions have heads that examine every harmonic and melodic possibility and are almost stories unto themselves. His sextet recently played a lively set at New York's Fat Cat, and a few of the tunes they performed are featured on August's new album, the somewhat self-titled Late ...

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.
