Jon Lundbom & Big Five Chord: Harder On The Outside

Read "Harder On The Outside" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

A complex web of sampling, beat construction and live improvisation all led to this disc by guitarist Jon Lundbom and his group, Big Five Chord, a CD that is a heady stew of hard-edged funk grooves, squalling saxophones and gleeful guitar freakouts. This project started with saxophonist Bryan Murray sampling old Big Five Chord ...

Fareed Haque: Out of Nowhere

Read "Fareed Haque: Out of Nowhere" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

Jon Lundbom: Liverevil

Read "Liverevil" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Like Stiff Records from the 1970s and '80s punk era, Hot Cup Records always delivers music that is a sharp shot to the solar plexus.

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.
