Elsewhere Return Visitors

Read "Elsewhere Return Visitors" reviewed by John Eyles

As the Elsewhere label's third anniversary, in July 2021, closely followed the June release of its fifteenth and sixteenth albums, it seemed an appropriate time to look back. In a way, those two albums tell a large part of the story as, together, they feature three musicians who are all return visitors to the label, Anastassis ...

Explore Ensemble debut on Another Timbre

Read "Explore Ensemble debut on Another Timbre" reviewed by John Eyles

For some time, Apartment House (or prominent members such as Anton Lukoszevieze, Mira Benjamin or Philip Thomas) have featured on the lion's share of Another Timbre releases to the extent that the ensemble could almost be considered the label's house band; given the high quality of Apartment House's players and their playing, that has been good ...

Stefan Keune, Old & New…

Read "Stefan Keune, Old & New…" reviewed by John Eyles

Spoonhunt's First CD Releases

Read "Spoonhunt's First CD Releases" reviewed by John Eyles

Like the notorious London buses, with musician-run independent record labels, you wait ages for one to arrive and then two come along together. Just as punters were welcoming N.O. Moore's new dx/dy label, along comes the first batch of releases on bassist Dominic Lash's charmingly-named Spoonhunt label. To be fair, Spoonhunt is not totally new. Since ...

Read "N.O. Moore starts his own dx/dy label" reviewed by John Eyles

With his Debut label, founded in 1952, Charles Mingus is often credited as being the first musician to set up his own independent record label, to avoid the hassle of working for major companies. Although Debut was rather short-lived, it paved the way for other improvising musicians to set up their own labels with greater success; ...

Insub Meta Orchestra: Ten / Sync

Read "Ten / Sync" reviewed by John Eyles

During the Covid-19 lockdown, the INSUB label managed to maintain a steady flow of excellent new releases, both digital and on CD.

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
