Read "A Musical Portrait Of Cortex" reviewed by Centro d'Arte Padova

For this new installment of our “50/50" series, we asked the members of Cortex (Thomas Johansson, Kristoffer Berre Alberts, Ola Høyer, Gard Nilssen), one of the most interesting groups in the burgeoning Norwegian jazz scene, to choose five tracks that inspired them in their music making. We then completed the selection with five other tracks taken ...

Gard Nilssen's Acoustic Unity: Live In Europe

Read "Live In Europe" reviewed by John Sharpe

Norwegian drummer Gard Nilssen formed Acoustic Unity back in 2014 to assuage his desire to compose and lead in a pure jazz setting. The initial get together with saxophonist André Roligheten and bassist Petter Eldh was so successful that it yielded the well-received Firehouse (Clean Feed, 2015). That achievement gives rise to an audacious gambit for ...

Cortex: Avant-Garde Party Music

Read "Avant-Garde Party Music" reviewed by Vic Albani

Fossero tutte così le party-band! Cortex e Clean Feed colpiscono ancora e questo nuovo e ironico Avant-Garde Party Music la dice lunga sulle prospettive dello straordinario quartetto norvegese che dà alle stampe un nuovo capitolo della loro fortunata discografia. Se qualcuno cercasse una naturale evoluzione di un moderno hard-bop che attraversando gli insegnamenti di ...

Cortex: Avant-Garde Party Music

Read "Avant-Garde Party Music" reviewed by John Sharpe

Why change a winning formula? If Norwegian crew Cortex has considered that question, then the response was likely an unconcerned shrug. Studio session Avant-Garde Party Music continues firmly in the winning vein established by Clean Feed predecessors Live! (2014) and Live In New York (2016), mashing 1960s New Thing tropes with contemporary inside/outside soloing. Trumpeter Thomas ...

Jazzfestival Saalfelden 2017

Read "Jazzfestival Saalfelden 2017" reviewed by Stefano Merighi

Fotografare lo stato dell'arte nell'ambito del jazz e delle musiche limitrofe è compito che il festival di Saalfelden svolge assai bene ormai da decenni. Non solo la rassegna austriaca non rinuncia ad alcuna delle sue prerogative estetiche (apertura massima rispetto agli stili contemporanei, volontà di anticipare tendenze, capacità di realizzare prime esecuzioni mondiali), ma anzi, trova ...

Steve Noble / Kristoffer Berre Alberts: Coldest Second Yesterday

Read "Coldest Second Yesterday" reviewed by John Sharpe

Saxophone/drum duets tend to bring out the devil in people. Norwegian reedman Kristoffer Berre Alberts' approach might come as a surprise for those familiar with him only through his work with bands such as Snik and Cortex. Here he explores the edges to the exclusion of almost all else, with barely a conventional pitch among the ...

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.
