Peter Brötzmann & Fred Lonberg-Holm: Memories of a Tunicate

Read "Memories of a Tunicate" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Peter Brötzmann in a duo format brings out the best of Peter Brötzmann. Yes, but maybe of greater import, the duo also ennobles his improvising partner. Not that cellist Fred Lonberg-Holm needs the accolades. He has been front-and-center of the creative music scene for more than three decades, collaborating with the likes of Joe McPhee, Ken ...

Stephen Gauci / Sandy Ewen / Adam Lane / Kevin Shea: Live at the Bushwick Series

Read "Live at the Bushwick Series" reviewed by Mark Corroto

There are certain musicians, let's call them axis musicians, who are always at the center of a scene or movement. Dave Rempis, William Parker and Ken Vandermark can consistently be found at the epicenter of a sound or scene. This is also true of saxophonist Stephen Gauci, the coordinator of a music series at the Bushwick ...

Kjetil Møster: Ran Do

Read "Ran Do" reviewed by Mark Corroto

More than in any other American jazz scene, the musicians of Chicago have embraced and continue to embrace their colleagues in Europe and the UK. In the 1990s the Chicagoan Ken Vandermark began a long-standing association with Mats Gustafsson (Sweden) and Peter Brotzmann (Germany). And Hamid Drake has been crisscrossing the Atlantic for ages. These connections ...

Dan Phillips Quartet: Converging Tributaries

Read "Converging Tributaries" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Sorry New York, but Chicago jazz hits harder. And maybe it always has, with players like Gene Ammons, Von Freeman, Fred Anderson and today's stars, Dave Rempis, Frank Rosaly, Hamid Drake, and Fred Lonberg-Holm, to name just a few musicians. Maybe it is the winters, or is it the searing heat of summer that mutates the ...

Steve Swell: Kanreki: Reflection & Renewal

Read "Kanreki: Reflection & Renewal" reviewed by John Sharpe

To mark his sixtieth birthday (December 6, 2014), trombonist Steve Swell, long the pre-eminent trombonist on the NYC free jazz scene, invokes the Japanese custom of Kanreki. Although it is said to signal both a rebirth and a handing on of responsibilities, Swell shows no signs of allowing the occasion to inhibit his ambition. Over the ...

Ab Baars Trio: Slate Blue

Read "Slate Blue" reviewed by Mark Corroto

There used to be something about the Dutch jazz scene that made it stand out from American jazz, British jazz, and well, other European happenings. The “New Dutch Swing," to borrow the title from Kevin Whitehead's 1998 book, comprised an irreverent brand of music making, with little regard to tradition. Dutch players leaned heavily on Dada ...

Gebhard Ullmann/Basement Research: Hat And Shoes

Read "Hat And Shoes" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Saxophonist Gebhard Ullmann might be the German equivalent of Chicago's Ken Vandermark. Both players are influential composers and both maintain multiple creative ensembles in Europe and the United States. Like Vandermark, Ullmann's catalog is vast. Hat And Shoes is his 50th release as a leader or co- leader, and this band Basement Research have put out ...

Timothy Daisy: October Music (Vol. 1) 7 Compositions For Duet

Read "October Music (Vol. 1) 7 Compositions For Duet" reviewed by Mark Corroto

In 2001 drummer Tim Daisy replaced Tim Mulvenna in Vandermark 5. From that instant, his career has evolved first as a sideman to composer/saxophonist Ken Vandermark in V5, Bridge 61, Resonance Ensemble, The Frame Quartet, and more recently in Audio One and Made To Break. Next he distinguished himself with fellow Chicago musicians in Dave Rempis' ...

Jason Ajemian: A Way a Land of Life

Read "A Way a Land of Life" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

La registrazione, risalente al dicembre del 2006 e opportunamente ripescata e pubblicata dalla sempre più interessante NoBusiness Records, riunisce attorno al bassista Jason Ajemian un terzetto di fuoriclasse della scena improvvisativa statunitense e ci permette di apprezzarne appieno la dirompente vitalità, la contagiosa energia, l'intensità emotiva, la naturalezza nell'agire dentro e fuori i canoni.

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.
