Moers Festival Interviews: Pat Thomas

Read "Moers Festival Interviews: Pat Thomas" reviewed by Martin Longley


In 2020, the Moers Festival in Germany presented one of the first full post-lockdown events, with its performers physically in place, and its four-day programme resolutely running in the accustomed Eventhalle venue. There was a stage at each end of this cavernous space, with the French-German Arte television crew filming for broadcast on its channel, as ...

[Ahmed]: Nights on Saturn (communication)

Read "Nights on Saturn (communication)" reviewed by Troy Dostert


When [Ahmed] released its debut album, Super Majnoon (Otoroku), in 2019, it provided not only an opportunity to revisit the under-heralded work of pathbreaking bassist Ahmed Abdul-Malik. It also offered a bewildering, sometimes intoxicating stew of improvisation that relied equally on minimalist repetition and deeply-rooted grooves. This intrepid team of European musicians, consisting of saxophonist Seymour ...

[Ahmed]: Super Majnoon (East Meets West)

Read "Super Majnoon (East Meets West)" reviewed by John Sharpe


It's well known that artistic constraints can in fact aid creativity, but few have put the theory into such good practice as [Ahmed].

Ahmed: Super Majnoon (East Meets West)

Read "Super Majnoon (East Meets West)" reviewed by Mark Corroto


There are discoveries in jazz waiting (patiently) to be unearthed. Most of them are hidden in plain sight, like the music of Ahmed Abdul-Malik. Born in Brooklyn in 1927, the bassist performed and recorded with, among others Art Blakey, John Coltrane, Thelonious Monk, and Randy Weston. Besides double bass, he pioneered the oud in jazz and ...

سم [ISM]: Metaphor

Read "Metaphor" reviewed by Mark Corroto


We are all becoming. Not “becoming" as in pretty or handsome, but, as in we are coming to be. You can relate this to the Dharma path, or maturity, maybe even the act of learning how to juggle. Becoming is also the theme of the trio سم [ISM]. Its follow up to Nature In Its Inscrutability ...

Neuköllner Modelle: Zyklus 1

Read "Zyklus 1" reviewed by Mark Corroto


The third release by the trio Neuköllner Modelle, saxophonist Bertrand Denzler, bassist Joel Grip, and drummer Sven-Åke Johansson, Zyklus 1 might be considered a zen chronicle. The four lengthy tracks reveal the true nature of improvised sound, group interaction, and thus, the essence of meditation. Like meditation, their music is very simple, yet extremely hard to ...

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!
