Cristián Alvear on INSUB

Read "Cristián Alvear on INSUB" reviewed by John Eyles

Since the Chilean guitarist Cristián Alvear first appeared in Europe and had his debut album, 24 Petits Préludes Pour La Guitare, released by Edition Wanderweiser, in 2013, he has been highly productive and visible, releasing about forty albums in some seven years. Impressive as that figure may seem, even more so are the labels he has ...

Mia Zabelka: Myasmo

Read "Myasmo" reviewed by John Eyles

Although her first album was released in 1987, Austrian violinist and vocalist Mia Zabelka has not released many recordings, Myasmo being the twenty-sixth. Despite impressive albums by groupings such as Trio Blurb, those featuring Zabelka solo stand out; so it is a pleasure to report that Myasmo is the latest addition to that select collection. For ...

Tony Oxley: Beaming

Read "Beaming" reviewed by John Eyles

Since 2010, album releases from drummer Tony Oxle (born 1938) have become increasingly scarce and poignant.

Its appearance on Incus was a reminder that ...

From 2012 onwards, Brennan and Majdalini were in the trio Pilgrims together, alongside guitarist Marco Jencarelli but, prior to Sooon, Morgenegg had no experience with ...

Magnus Granberg: Let Pass My Weary Guiltless Ghost

Read "Let Pass My Weary Guiltless Ghost" reviewed by John Eyles

Some eight years after his Another Timbre debut, Ist Gefallen In Der Schnee (2012), the good news for followers of Swedish composer-performer Marcus Granberg is that Let Pass My Weary Guiltless Ghost--his ninth release on the label in as many years--is one of his best yet. Further good news is that this album features a ten-member ...

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.
