Enzo Rocco, Ferdinando Faraò: Fields

Read "Fields" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Enzo Rocco e Ferdinando Faraò sono due musicisti che si muovono spesso in molteplici contesti musicali, ma che hanno sempre di mira la sperimentazione e sono accomunati da un forte interesse per l'improvvisazione più libera--testimoniata dalle collaborazioni di Rocco con personalità del calibro di Giancarlo Schiaffini e Lol Coxhill e dall'impegno profuso da Faraò nell'Artchipel Orchestra. ...

Lol Coxhill & Raymond MacDonald: Morphometry

Read "Morphometry" reviewed by Duncan Heining

Glorious, custard-coloured vinyl, a charming and witty woodcut by artist Ian Barrett (Syd's nephew) on the cover and ten duos featuring saxophonists Lol Coxhill and Raymond MacDonald--what's not to like?

Joëlle Léandre: A Woman's Work...

Read "A Woman's Work..." reviewed by Mark Corroto

Besides, free improvisation, almost by definition, dissipates (or probably should dissipate) upon ...

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.
