Randy Brecker and Eric Marienthal: Double Dealin'

Read "Double Dealin'" reviewed by Jim Worsley

It can be difficult for two giants to share space without colliding into each other. It alternatively can be a bold mix of dynamic forces. Double Dealin' (Shanachie, 2020) robustly falls into the second category. It took many years for Randy Brecker and Eric Marienthal to finally find the right project to come together on. The ...

Chick Corea: Plays

Read "Plays" reviewed by Jim Worsley

Imagine having the opportunity to be in Chick Corea's living room. To hear him speak personally, with poignance and humor.

Randy Brecker & Eric Marienthal: Aces

Read "Randy Brecker & Eric Marienthal: Aces" reviewed by Jim Worsley

Randy Brecker certainly needs no introduction. Neither does Eric Marienthal. But the fact that they have joined forces on a new record is something to talk about. That's exactly what we did, and then some. We went deep into the record, when we weren't busy having a laugh or two. Then there were memories of Michael ...

Steve Khan: A Rich Discography and A Priceless Left Hand

Read "Steve Khan: A Rich Discography and A Priceless Left Hand" reviewed by Jim Worsley

The life and times of guitarist extraordinaire Steve Khan stretch through a high volume of evolving chapters that fuse together like the passages of a finely crafted arrangement.

Fredrik Lindborg: Fredrik Lindborg: A Swedish Portrait

Read "Fredrik Lindborg: A Swedish Portrait" reviewed by Jim Worsley

A time capsule is opened carefully, and its contents are respectively honored and revered.

Peter Hess Quartet: Present Company

Read "Present Company" reviewed by Jim Worsley

What word to say first, refreshing or wow? Perhaps, wow, this is refreshing! With the assorted amount of experimental jazz that often needed more time in the lab, that is an assault on the unsuspecting ear, the Peter Hess Quartet have concocted their own penicillin.

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.
