Forebrace: Steeped

Read "Steeped" reviewed by John Eyles

Steeped is the second album release from Forebrace, the welcome follow-up to Bad Folds (Copecod, 2013). For those who delighted in that album, the good news is that the quartet's line-up remains unchanged, and the balance between composed and improvised music is as before--composed pieces credited to Forebrace's leader and clarinetist, Alex Ward, alternating with improvisations ...

Read "Ears Are Filled With Wonder" reviewed by John Sharpe

In saxophonist Peter Brötzmann's interview memoir We Thought We Could Change The World (Wolke Verlag Hofheim, 2014) he spoke about meeting Sonny Sharrock in Berlin 1969, when the guitarist was working for Herbie Mann.

Peter Brotzmann, Sonny Sharrock: WHATTHEFUCKDOYOUWANT

Read "WHATTHEFUCKDOYOUWANT" reviewed by Enrico Bettinello

Si aprano le porte dell'inferno! L'ottima Trost Records convince Peter Brotzmann a ripescare nei propri archivi questo bruciante set del 1987 in duo con la chitarra di Sonny Sharrock; unico precedente della detonante coppia, il vinile Fragments per la Okkadisk, che però è registrato un paio di anni più tardi e uscito nel 2003. ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
