James Muller

Born:

“James Muller is a mountain of guitar virtuosity…All the things that are the most effective in jazz, rock, blues and country guitar emerge naturally at the right time, in the right place and it can give the listener shivers.”-John Clare. Sydney Morning Herald James was born in Adelaide, South Australia in 1974 to musical parents. He became interested in music at an early age and began playing the guitar at the age of 12. Initially inspired by rock music of the sixties and seventies his love of jazz took over at the age of 16. Two years later James was gigging in the working band of renowned clarinetist/saxophonist Andrew Firth with whom he stayed until 1994. After working with the cream of Adelaide’s jazz and rock musicians James relocated to Sydney in the summer of 1996, where he quickly became one of the most in-demand guitarists in the country. He has played and/or recorded with: Vince Jones, James Morrison, Dale Barlow, Mike Nock, Renee Geyer, Bernie McGann, Don Burrows, Mark Isaacs, Sean Wayland, Steve Hunter and Scott Tinkler as well as international artists Chad Wackerman, Bill Stewart, Vinnie Colaiuta, Adam Nussbaum, Jay Anderson, Steve Tavaglione, Maria Schneider, Tim Ries, Tony Moncao, Donny McCaslin, Bob Sheppard, Matt Penman and Jochen Rueckert. James has recorded 4 CD’s under his own name

Pat Metheny: From This Place

Read "From This Place" reviewed by John Kelman


It's been a full six years since Pat Metheny last released a studio recording. This, despite the guitarist who has become, in a career now in the midst of its fifth decade, one of the most famous and influential jazz guitarists of his (or, some would argue, any) generation, reportedly having enough material in the can ...

Linda Oh: Sun Pictures

Read "Sun Pictures" reviewed by Hrayr Attarian

Trichotomy: Fact Finding Mission

Read "Fact Finding Mission" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay


So what is a “Fact Finding Mission"? It might be a pretty dull trip to gather data; it may be a euphemism for something a little more sordid. If it's being undertaken by Australian piano trio Trichotomy, then it's a whole heap of musical fun, for this particular Fact Finding Mission is the band's fifth album: ...

Mark Isaacs Resurgence Band: Aurora

Read "Aurora" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey


The last artistic musical movement in jazz to be given a meaningful name was the post-bop movement. Arising out of the mid-1960s as a unifying response to hard bop, modal, the avant-garde and free jazz, post-bop has fairly well dominated the most creative jazz made in the last 30 years. If post-bop has a ground zero, ...

Mark Isaacs: Aurora

Read "Aurora" reviewed by John Kelman


As Tell It Like It Is (ABC Jazz, 2009), amply proved, sometimes it's better to work with local musicians who, through regular touring, establish a singular collective voice. That's not to say Resurgence (ABC Jazz, 2007) was bad--it's hard to imagine anything with bassist Jay Anderson, drummer Vinnie Colaiuta and saxophonist Bob Sheppard as lacking in ...

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!
