Sandviken Big Band: In the Name of Freedom

Read "In the Name of Freedom" reviewed by Jack Bowers

This admirably performed two-CD set by Sweden's celebrated Sandviken Big Band, recorded live in 2009 and comprised for the most part of music composed by Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn, isn't without its ambiguous aspects.

Emma Larsson: Let It Go

Read "Let It Go" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Among the many sub-genres of jazz, none is more congested than that of female vocalists. So clotted is this particular marketplace that it is almost impossible to separate the signal (exceptional releases) from the noise (everything else).

While striving to avoid clichés like the plague, there seems only one way to describe Danish jazz violinist Svend Asmussen: he is still going strong. At the age of 92, “the fiddling Viking" is embarking on a 2008 tour of Scandinavia. Fiddling Around, recorded when he was a mere slip of a lad, age 77, has ...

Sounds Of Eternity: Part One

Read "Part One" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

The title of this album projects existential or perhaps biblical connotations. Yet this Swedish quintet evens out the glorious melodies with a contemporary jazz methodology, topped-off with a distinct edge. They render a balancing act of sorts, where improvisation attains a hearty coexistence with Linnea Olsson's angelic vocals and textural cello work to complement an easy ...

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.
