Leni Stern: Dance

Read "Dance" reviewed by Jim Worsley


Compelling is the word. If you are in search of a one word description of Leni Stern's new record, it is indeed the word. Then again, that aptly applies to her body of work over the past thirty-five years. Dance is as much a metaphor as it is a movement. Life, in its never ending struggle ...

Dan Blake: Da Fé

Read "Da Fé" reviewed by Jerome Wilson


A lot of personal factors go into saxophonist Dan Blake's music on this CD, such as his concerns about the environment, his Buddhist teachings and his social activism. What comes out of this is a style of electro-acoustic jazz which is alternately meditative and fiery. The basic music here was performed in the studio ...

Dan Blake: Da Fé

Read "Da Fé" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic


It's comforting to know that saxophonist Dan Blake hasn't taken Thoreau's inconvenient truth that “most men lead lives of quiet desperation" to heart. Instead, as his Da Fé (translated: of faith) and his apprenticeships with Anthony Braxton} and {{Julian Lage prove succinctly, Blake intends to bring the music, and the consciousness of our fragility within it, ...

Giancarlo Schiaffini & Sergio Armaroli and Kopasetic artists

Read "Giancarlo Schiaffini & Sergio Armaroli and Kopasetic artists" reviewed by Maurice Hogue


Deconstructing one of the original deconstructers of jazz, Thelonious Monk, is no easy task, but the Italian duo of trombonist Giancarlo Schiaffini and percussionist Sergio Armaroli do exactly that on their new album Deconstructing Monk In Africa. It's one of the more unusual releases of late; you'll hear an excerpt from their extended work. Monk is ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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!
