The Necks: Three

Read "Three" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic


With their stubbornly spiky, hold-onto-your-hat mindset firmly rooted, a high fever runs wild on Three, The Necks' twenty-first release in its thirty-three year, unhindered-by-genre career. It starts like most of the trio's existential, kaleidoscopic excursions do: some minimalist point of blurred melodic frenzy is acted upon and the rest becomes an amalgam of theory and system... ...

The Necks: Three

Read "Three" reviewed by Mark Sullivan


Live performances by Australian free-improvising trio The Necks typically take the form of a single, slowly growing and morphing mass of sound. On recordings the musicians give themselves permission to sculpt the sound, so it is not a real-time document. Nevertheless their two previous albums Vertigo (Northern Spy Records, 2015) and Body (Northern Spy Records, 2018) ...

Le Nuove Avventure di Phillip Johnston

Read "Le Nuove Avventure di Phillip Johnston" reviewed by Vic Albani


Il sessantaquattrenne signor Phillip Johnston è un avanguardista autentico da tempi non sospetti.

Phillip Johnston Returns with Diggin' Bones and The Adventures of Prince Achmed

Read "Phillip Johnston Returns with Diggin' Bones and The Adventures of Prince Achmed" reviewed by John Kelman


The consequences of change in the music industry have been predicted for some time now but, with far too many blinkered deniers, it's had to begin approaching critical mass before being recognized for what it is: the commoditization and devaluation of music that has led to increasing challenges for musicians looking to maintain any kind of ...

The Necks: Body

Read "Body" reviewed by Luca Canini


Si potrebbe iniziare dicendo che il disco è il ventesimo (live esclusi) pubblicato dai The Necks in quasi trent'anni di carriera; oppure ricordando che il precedente, di disco, si intitolava Unfold, e che dal formato vinile (doppio) per Body il trio australiano ha deciso di tornare al caro, vecchio CD, ripristinando la regola aurea della traccia ...

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!
