Frank Carlberg/Gabriel Bolaños: Charity and Love

Read "Charity and Love" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

While Frank Carlberg certainly rises to great heights in large-group settings, some of the pianist's most absorbing and thought-provoking work has been built around the intimacy of the duo. Whether we're talking about intrigue-laced meetings with fellow Finn (and drumming great) Klaus Suonsaari, a ballad set featuring tenor saxophonist Noah Preminger, some two-piano play with Ran ...

A constant, careful examination of sound and texture persists ...

Klaus Suonsaari: Live in Helsinki

Read "Live in Helsinki" reviewed by Ken Dryden

Drummer Klaus Suonsaari is equally at home in the worlds of post bop, mainstream jazz and free jazz, though this live trio performance focuses on the latter.

Klaus Suonsaari: Portrait in Sound & Offering

Read "Klaus Suonsaari: Portrait in Sound & Offering" reviewed by Jeff Stockton

Klaus Suonsaari Portrait in Sound Focus Records 2003 Portrait in Sound is a brilliantly programmed hour of music that builds on the foundation of the bluesy sax-and-drum swing of “Semblance," winds its way through fairly straight-ahead quartet workouts such as the piano-driven “Whack!" and the soprano-led “Offering" and dabbles in ...

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.
