Solstice: Food For Thought

Read "Food For Thought" reviewed by Chris May


An off-the-wall and extraordinarily beautiful album, Food For Thought is London sextet Solstice's follow-up to Alimentation (Two Rivers), a niche-jazz landmark in 2016. The album blends jazz with prog-rock and tropicalia-like psychedelia. It is intricate, lyrical and wildly inventive. It is also technically demanding and forensically arranged, yet it all sounds effortless. It is, most of ...

Tim Garland: ReFocus

Read "ReFocus" reviewed by Ian Patterson


Strings and Tim Garland have always resonated well together. A leading figure of British jazz since the early 2000s, Garland emerged from a classical background, having studied classical composition at the Guildhall School of Music. His dual idioms have converged persuasively on albums such as If The Sea Replied (Sirocco Music Limited, 2005), Libra (Global Mix, ...

Yuri Goloubev: Two Chevrons Apart

Read "Two Chevrons Apart" reviewed by Ian Patterson


In recent years double bassist Yuri Goloubev has lent his rich sound to multiple projects, including the co-led Duonomics (Caligola, 2018) with Michele Di Toro. It was 2011's Titanic for a Bike (Caligola), however, that marked Goloubev's last recording as outright leader. This welcome return—his headlining debut on Basho Records—sees him align with frequent musical partners ...

Alex Merritt Quartet: Anatta

Read "Anatta" reviewed by Budd Kopman


Everyone, listeners and composers/players bring their life experience to the music at hand. Jazz musicians in particular, especially today when many, if not most, compose as well as perform, pour themselves once into a composition, and then again when performing it. The performer aims to virtually disappear, to separate the distance and space between himself and ...

Matt Ridley: Mettã

Read "Mettã" reviewed by Roger Farbey


A graduate of London's Trinity College of Music, this is in-demand bassist Matt Ridley's second album as leader. On “Music To Drive Home To" Jason Yarde plays a repeated plangent melody on soprano saxophone followed by John Turville elegantly soloing on piano. As its name implies “Lachrymose" is something of a tear-jerking exercise with Yarde squeezing ...

Tim Garland: Songs To The North Sky

Read "Tim Garland: Songs To The North Sky" reviewed by Ian Patterson


So much of multi-reedist Tim Garland's recorded output takes nature as its inspiration. The eternal symphony of the sea, the theatre of sky, light and air and the vistas that have accompanied Garland's twenty plus years on the road are ever-present in his works; Songs to the North Sky is no exception. The first of two ...

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!
