JC Sanford: Imminent Standards Trio Vol. 1

Read "Imminent Standards Trio Vol. 1" reviewed by Jack Bowers


Trombone-led trios are few and far between, but Minnesota-based JC Sanford, a protégé of the late great Bob Brookmeyer, gives it a go with bassist Jeff Bailey and drummer Phil Hey on Imminent Standards Trio Vol. 1, whose title does not derive from imminent, as in “soon-to-be," but as in “Imminent Brewing," the trio's monthly performing ...

JC Sanford Quartet: Keratoconus

Read "Keratoconus" reviewed by Friedrich Kunzmann


A bubbling ostinato on trombone to the right. Treble register double-bass lines join in the middle. Muffled electric-guitar riffs imitate the same to the left--the guitar's dry tone seemingly hailing straight from a rustic 1960s Telecaster. Drums start banging ahead relentlessly; not in a constant motion though--they stop and go and stop and go, unsure whether ...

Adam Meckler: Magnificent Madness

Read "Magnificent Madness" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


Non so se Minneapolis è considerata “provincia" nel vasto territorio statunitense (nel campo del jazz certamente si, rispetto ai poli storici di New York, Los Angeles e Chicago) ma spesso dalla provincia giungono alte prove di creatività. Il trombettista, educatore e bandleader Adam Meckler deve ancora trovare ampi riconoscimenti ma il suo debutto orchestrale del 2014 ...

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!
