Keith Tippett

For over thirty years Keith Tippett has been at the forefront of contemporary European jazz and new music. In the late 1960s, Tippett led a sextet featuring Elton Dean on saxophone, Mark Charig on trumpet and Nick Evans on trombone. Tippett married singer Julie Driscoll and wrote scores for TV. In the early 1970s, his big band Centipede brought together much of a generation of young British jazz and rock musicians. As well as performing some concerts (limited economically by the size of the band), they recorded one double-album, Septober Energy. He formed, with Harry Miller and Louis Moholo a formidable rhythm section at the centre of some of the most exciting combinations in the country, including the Elton Dean quartet, and Elton Dean's Ninesense

Francesco Massaro: zoologo imperfetto

Read "Francesco Massaro: zoologo imperfetto" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Francesco Massaro, quarantaduenne compositore, sassofonista e clarinettista pugliese, è da alcuni anni uno dei musicisti più interessanti della penisola, messosi in luce per il singolare tipo di ricerca a cavallo tra improvvisazione e scrittura non convenzionale portata avanti dalla sua principale formazione, Bestiario.

Read "Resonance & Rapsodies" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Con risultati, va detto subito, stupefacenti. Il ...

Keith Tippett: R.I.P.

Read "Keith Tippett: R.I.P." reviewed by Duncan Heining

Keith Tippett's death on Sunday, 14th June 2020 robbed British and European music of one of its finest talents. The death on any musician of even minor significance often leads many critics reaching for the Thesaurus and tripping over their adjectives in a head-rush of hyperbole. In Keith's case, the simple phrase--"one of music's finest talents"--cuts ...

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.
