Dave Manington's Riff Raff: Challenger Deep

Read "Challenger Deep" reviewed by Roger Farbey

Dave Manington's third album as leader is an intriguing one. It defies the listener's expectations as it progress through its titles. For example, the Chick Corea /Flora Purim-esque opening to “Dr. Octopus" may lead the listener into false assumptions of the Latin kind. Similarly, the ensuing title track, including Tom Challenger's Albert Ayler-like tenor wails and ...

Read "Ruins" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

Ruins is the debut release from keyboardist and composer Dan Nicholls. Nicholls is based in London, where he is a member of the ever-fascinating Loop Collective.

Dave Manington's Riff Raff: Hullabaloo

Read "Hullabaloo" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

A band called Riff Raff, an album titled Hullabaloo; it's a fair bet that a rowdy collection of delinquents is about to create a raucous musical racket. The bet would be lost, however, as both band name and album title misdirect. Hullabaloo is a collection of free-flowing, often meditative tunes written by bassist/bandleader Dave Manington and ...

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.
