Angles 9: Beyond Us

Read "Beyond Us" reviewed by John Sharpe

Swedish saxophonist Martin Küchen's versatile Angles agglomeration has appeared in assorted sizes from a trio up to a nonet. But whatever the dimensions, it possesses the familiar virtues of driving riffs, explosive soloing, and elemental yet affecting melodies. Beyond Us, recorded live during Groningen's splendid Summer Jazz Cycling Tour is no different. It's the fourth release ...

Fire! Orchestra: Arrival

Read "Arrival" reviewed by Gareth Thompson

The ancient Zen art of decluttering has found modern favour as a mindful practice. Letting go of things is, perhaps, a way of breaking with the past. In the years since its inception, the Nordic big band Fire! Orchestra has jettisoned about half its original cast. Now down to a mere fourteen members, the outfit has ...

Fire!: The Hands

Read "The Hands" reviewed by Sammy Stein

Rune Grammofon unleashed something special with the great music it has released over the past 20 years, and with The Hands it has surpassed itself. The Fire! trio, which consists of reedman Mats Gustafsson, bassist Johan Berthling and drummer Andreas Werlin, makes music which defies labels and classification. Now, going into a resting phase after ten ...

Angles 9: Disappeared Behind the Sun

Read "Disappeared Behind the Sun" reviewed by John Sharpe

On the sixth release from reedman Martin Küchen's mid-sized Angles ensemble, all the winning traits so evident on previous outings are still present and correct: heart wrenching melodies, huge foot-tapping riffs, sweeping chorales and adventurous raw soloing, not least by the leader himself. Many of the same top notch players remain on board, notably trombonist Mats ...

Martin Küchen, Johan Berthling, Steve Noble: Night in Europe

Read "Night in Europe" reviewed by Enrico Bettinello

Dopo quasi cinquant'anni di pratiche e di forti testimonianze registrate, l'improvvisazione in Europa sembra avere codificato lessici e grammatiche, sia che si tratti di percorsi che si riallacciano più naturalmente alla sperimentazione del campo della composizione musicale Novecentesca, sia che -come accade nel caso del disco in questione -il modello New Thing di matrice più schiettamente ...

Doom and gloom begone, now for some serious fun. Nacka Forum is back with their fifth recording.

Spinning We Are The ...

She Sleeps, She Sleeps is the fifth album release from Fire!

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.
