Evan Parker: Crepuscule In Nickelsdorf 

Read "Crepuscule In Nickelsdorf " reviewed by Glenn Astarita

This is another bright spot in acclaimed British saxophonist Evan Parker's extensive career. Along with Matthew Wright's turntable and live sampling activities, Trance Map emanates from the duo's meeting in 2008, for a project that includes field recordings, samples and other EFX-based mediums merged into improvisational creations. It's an electro-organic infusion, complete with the sounds of ...

Evan Parker: Crepuscule In Nickelsdorf 

Read "Crepuscule In Nickelsdorf " reviewed by Mark Corroto

Excise the notion of virtual reality and AI as the force behind the music heard on Crepuscule In Nickelsdorf by Evan Parker and Matthew Wright's Trance Map+. Undoubtedly you might be tempted to have this thought by surveying the instrumentation, which is chock-full of sampling and electronics. Let's reserve those thoughts for a listen to this ...

Alan Wilkinson/Steve Noble/John Coxon/Pat Thomas: The Founder Effect I

Read "The Founder Effect I" reviewed by Mark Corroto

You cannot judge a book by its cover. Maybe, but music fans somehow know that expression doesn't lend itself to album covers (in this case, CD covers). Look at the Blue Note Records covers from the 1960 sixties, Miles Davis' On The Corner (Columbia, 1972), or The Clash's London Calling (Columbia, 1979), and tell me you ...

The Founder Effect Signals That Treader Is Alive And Well!

Read "The Founder Effect Signals That Treader Is Alive And Well!" reviewed by John Eyles

The Treader label released its first CDs in late 2004. The label's distinctive Frauke Stegmann-designed sleeves, featuring embossed gold pictures of animals on plain backgrounds, made them instantly recognisable and collectable design classics. Rather than singly, the label always put out releases in series of three, the animals of each series sometimes being connected--mammals or birds, ...

Wadada Leo Smith: I'm A Dreamer

Read "Wadada Leo Smith: I'm A Dreamer" reviewed by John Sharpe

As dreamers go trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith lies at the more serious end of the spectrum. Not for him dreams that fade with the daylight, as evidenced by the realization of his epic Civil Rights inspired Ten Freedom Summers (Cuneiform, 2012). Smith actually composed the first piece of what developed into a 21 piece magnum opus ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
