Dan Blake: Da Fé

Read "Da Fé" reviewed by Jerome Wilson


A lot of personal factors go into saxophonist Dan Blake's music on this CD, such as his concerns about the environment, his Buddhist teachings and his social activism.

Rodrigo Faina and Change Ensemble: Different Roots

Read "Different Roots" reviewed by Jerome Wilson


This is not the usual large ensemble jazz recording. Instead of having instrumental groups play against each other, this music moves largely as a massed force with only sparing solo statements. It carries the gravity and weight of classical music and mixes in the harmonies and colors of jazz composers like Gil Evans and Kenny Wheeler ...

Kristiana Roemer: House of Mirrors

Read "House of Mirrors" reviewed by Jerome Wilson


Kristiana Roemer is a young German singer whose voice has a lilt and plush texture reminiscent of Annette Peacock.

Benoit Delbecq: The Weight of Light

Read "The Weight of Light" reviewed by Jerome Wilson


The concept of light having weight may seem unusual but in listening to this solo set by pianist Benoit Delbecq, the idea starts to make sense. His style of playing mixes feathery improvisations with clanking rhythms that bring a feeling of mass and density to his work. Delbecq uses a lot of prepared piano ...

Florian Ross: Architexture

Read "Architexture" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

Chris Pattishall: Zodiac

Read "Zodiac" reviewed by Jerome Wilson


This is pianist Chris Pattishall's take on Mary Lou Williams' “Zodiac Suite," an extended work that has been unjustly overlooked in jazz history.

Read "All Figured Out" reviewed by Jerome Wilson


Tenor player Derek Brown has made a name for himself with a concept called “BEATBoX SAX," a method of playing saxophone in a continuous stream of pops, honks, melody and slap-tonguing that comes out like a hip-hop variation on Boots Randolph's old novelty tune. “Yakety Sax." He has put several videos on YouTube of him doing ...

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!
