Threadbare: Silver Dollar

Read "Silver Dollar" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

Wobbling like a drunk private eye in a thirties who dunnit, “And When the Situation Arises," the opening salutation of the unflinching Threadbare, rapidly transforms into a free jazz car chase where sodden hero and combatant bounce off light pole and guard rail, skidding towards cliffs with no regard for life, limb or the listener's expectations. ...

Jason Stein: Silver Dollar

Read "Silver Dollar" reviewed by Patrick Burnette

The record label's name--NoBusiness Records--should be warning enough. Silver Dollar is not an album trying to make friends. Contents are under pressure and probably dangerous. The group releasing said record, Threadbare, is a sonic-terrorist cell comprised of Jason Stein on bass clarinet, Ben Cruz on electric guitar and Emerson Hunton on drums. Once past the trappings ...

Sam Sadigursky is a special guest for this go-round, and the talk ranges from his pledge of fidelity to the clarinet, to his experiences in Darcy James Argue's Secret Society, to his lengthy tour of duty in a big time Broadway production, to his thoughts about bass-clarinet specialist Jason Stein.

Forse siamo caduti nella trappola auto-costruita della piccola comunità... Il festival era un pretesto per parlare nuovi linguaggi ...

Greg Ward: Nature Work

Read "Nature Work" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

"Con quel sorriso può dire ciò che vuole" recitava una pubblicità di un noto dentifricio che rese celebre al grande pubblico l'attrice Virna Lisi. Parafrasando potremmo dire, riguardo Nature Work , “Con quella ritmica puoi suonare quello che vuoi" perché Eric Revis al contrabbasso e Jim Black alla batteria formano una coppia formidabile (sorprendentemente al loro ...

Read "Rich Halley, Satoko Fuji, Ramon Lopez & More" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

Those artists who have been able to sustain long careers and consistently move the music forward must be celebrated, and this episode recognizes two such examples who have new recordings out at the moment: Be Known: Ancient/Future/Music from Chicago's Ethnic Heritage Ensemble, the group put together in 1976 by percussionist Kahil El'Zabar, and Terra Incognita from ...

Nature Work: Nature Work

Read "Nature Work" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Jason Stein and Greg Ward are two stalwart Chicago musicians who continually stretch boundaries and search for new experiences.

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.
