John Sharpe's Best Releases Of 2019

Read "John Sharpe's Best Releases Of 2019" reviewed by John Sharpe


There's sometimes a backlash against picking the year's best albums. Understandably so when it entails pitting one honest artistic endeavour against another. Best to view the selections as a chance to pick up on something that you might otherwise have missed. As a listener I always look forward to the annual year end lists for precisely ...

Op Der Schmelz: Live

Read "Live" reviewed by Glenn Astarita


This multinational quartet casts a surfeit of moody and climactically oriented movements, captured for this disc live at a venue in Luxembourg. Gushing with shifty theme-building exercises, New York- based pianist Roberta Piket often serves as the director of operations via her sympathetic comping, cascading chord voicings, and animated free-bop improvisational passages, yet overall, it's a ...

Roby Glod / Roberta Piket / Mark Tokar / Klaus Kugel: Op Der Schmelz Live

Read "Roby Glod / Roberta Piket / Mark Tokar / Klaus Kugel: Op Der Schmelz Live" reviewed by Dave Wayne


This album is a winner from the git-go. Brooklyn-based pianist Roberta Piket summons the spirits with a gentle, but emotionally direct solo piano rumination. Harmonically rich, with a probing depth that brings Paul Bley and Steve Kuhn to mind, Piket's invocation is just the first in series of golden moments on Op der Schmelz Live. A ...

Read "Op Der Schmelz Live" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni


This pan-European-American collective quartet, named after the Op Der Schmelz venue in Luxemburg (where this album was recorded), focuses in transforming intuitively detailed sonic moments into balanced movements, full of surprises and risk- taking. The quartet is comprised of four experienced improvisers--Luxemburg-based saxophonist Roby Glod, New Yorker pianist Roberta Piket, Ukrainian bassist Mark Tokar and Köln-based ...

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!
