Michael Moore, Django Bates, Lucia Cadotsch, Benjamin Koppel & More New Releases

Read "Michael Moore, Django Bates, Lucia Cadotsch, Benjamin Koppel & More New Releases" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

Django Bates celebrated his 60th birthday and 40th anniversary as a musician while marking Bird's centennial with adventurous and witty arrangements for the Norrbotten Big Band. That gives us a cue to look into more Scandinavian and large-ensemble music, following the adventures of Bates' bassist Petter Eldh, as part of the much awaited return of Lucia ...

Jazz & Soundtracks

Read "Jazz & Soundtracks" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

Jazz has had a very close relationship with cinema and TV. To be perfectly frank in this relationship cinema and TV have not as generous as jazz has been towards cinema. Jazz has been only sporadically covered by quality movies. When that has happened the quantity of stereotypies and clichés about jazz spoiled them ...

Il Meglio del 2017 Secondo Luca Vitali

Read "Il Meglio del 2017 Secondo Luca Vitali" reviewed by Luca Vitali

Un'annata buona, caratterizzata da alcuni graditi ritorni fuori dai canonici confini del jazz: Arto Lindsay, a tredici anni dal precedente «Salt», Jon Balke, con il secondo capitolo dedicato alla musica arabo andalusa di «Siwan», e in ultimo (ma non per importanza) John Lurie, che dopo diciassette anni di oblio forzato è tornato a farci visita nei ...

Per Gärdin/Pedro Lopes/Rodrigo Pinheiro: History Of The Lisbon Chaplaincy

Read "History Of The Lisbon Chaplaincy" reviewed by Mark Corroto

It's interesting just how much place influences a recording. Was the session captured in a hermetically sealed studio or a noisy jazz club? Is the sound engineered or merely captured? And how does the architecture of the recording space effect the sound? Sound experimentalist Pauline Oliveros often recorded in an empty water cistern, timing notes against ...

Read "Things We Like: Ottobre 2016" reviewed by AAJ Staff

Finito il mese di ottobre, riprendiamo la vecchia rubrica “Things We Like," dove, un po' per passione e un po' per gioco, descriviamo le cose (musicali e non) che ci rimarranno impresse del mese appena trascorso. Alberto Bazzurro Ottobre, mese pre-referendario per eccellenza (non quel referendum...), si porta generalmente appresso una caterva ...

Read "Lost Signals" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Lost Signals is the third Jeremy Danneman Ropeadope Records release from a series of sessions recorded in the fall of 2013 with bass icon William Parker, percussionist Tim Keiper, and guitarist Anders Nilsson. You might think that after culling tracks for Lady Boom Boom (2015) and Help (2015) from these sessions, that a third release might ...

Roy Nathanson: Nearness And You, Duets and Improvisations

Read "Nearness And You, Duets and Improvisations" reviewed by Mark Corroto

On saxophonist Roy Nathanson's 2009 disc Subway Moon (Yellowbird), he covers the R&B song “Love Train" a huge hit for The O'Jays in 1973. Nathanson's version was a relaxed take on the age old wish for world peace. By decelerating the music he accelerated the intimacy. He utilizes the same device on Nearness Of You, an ...

Livelove Radio Bremen series continues: Working Week and Jazz Passengers

Read "Livelove Radio Bremen series continues: Working Week and Jazz Passengers" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

The Livelove series issuing archival live Radio Bremen recordings began with Larry Coryell & The Eleventh House from January 1975 (Promising Music, 2015) and the Horace Silver Quintet from June 1977 (Promising Music, 2015). That seems like a pretty wide range: from jazz fusion to hard bop. But the third and fourth releases in the series ...

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.
