Keith Tippett: 100 Best Foots Forward

Read "Keith Tippett: 100 Best Foots Forward" reviewed by Duncan Heining


From the Albert Hall at twenty-two with a fifty-piece band to picking potatoes to make ends meet a decade later, Keith Tippett's life in music could sum up many a jazz career. After a grim '80s, things now look better for the composer, pianist and bandleader. “What I'm about to say is ridiculous but it was ...

Pete Brown: White Rooms & Imaginary Westerns, Part 1

Read "Pete Brown: White Rooms & Imaginary Westerns, Part 1" reviewed by Duncan Heining


Part 1 | Part 2 Poet, lyricist, rock musician, producer and scriptwriter—Pete Brown has covered a lot of bases in his six decades in music and literature. His career embodies that era that began with the Beatles' “Love Me Do" in October 1962 and ended in January 1969 with the band playing live on ...

Roy Budd: Get Carter

Read "Get Carter" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard


A classic movie needs a classic soundtrack, and composer and pianist Roy Budd delivered that with his music for Mike Hodges' iconic crime movie, Get Carter (1971). Without the opportunity of working with a grand orchestra, he made the most out of a low budget and tailored the sounds to the raw realism of the movie. ...

Poetry and Jazz: A Chronology

Read "Poetry and Jazz: A Chronology" reviewed by Duncan Heining

My definition of 'poetry' is fairly broad and ...

Presenting Problem

Read "Presenting Problem" reviewed by Duncan Heining


Jazz often appears to exist within its own cultural and artistic paradigm, isolated from other arts and in its own discreet musical corner. Worse still from the perspective of those who would hope to make a living from it, it often seems that more people want to play the music than listen to it or, more ...

Mike Westbrook: Live 1972

Read "Live 1972" reviewed by Maurizio Comandini


La meritoria etichetta inglese Hux Records recupera un live piuttosto raro del 1972 che vede protagonista una versione molto ridotta, in termini numerici, della famosa orchestra jazz del pianista Mike Westbrook. Il periodo è quello della transizione verso il rock-jazz di un arrangiatore molto apprezzato sia dall'establishment jazzistico dell'epoca, sia dal nuovo pubblico che stava sempre ...

Atlantic Bridge: Atlantic Bridge

Read "Atlantic Bridge" reviewed by Roger Farbey


Pianist Mike McNaught already had form as an evangelist of pop-inspired jazz, as witnessed on his previous group The London Jazz Four's 1967 Polydor release Take A New Look At The Beatles. However, on this eponymously titled idiosyncratic marriage of jazz and pop, Atlantic Bridge has a stab at two Beatles numbers and three Jim Webb ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
