Daniel Bennett: The Bear Truth

Read "Daniel Bennett: The Bear Truth" reviewed by Ludwig vanTrikt

Whether considered a member of Generation X or Y, saxophonist/multi-instrumentalist/composer and bandleader Daniel Bennett's career certainly is indicative of how many young artists' careers are ascending with the advent of the internet. But Daniel has a measured cynicism towards balancing live performance with the wonders of tech. Moreover what is also refreshing about ...

Chris McNulty: A Siren From Down Under

Read "Chris McNulty: A Siren From Down Under" reviewed by Ludwig vanTrikt

Chris McNulty emigrated to New York City, from her native home in Melbourne, Australia, in 1988. Since then she's released five recordings, with Waltz For Debby (Discovery, 1991) first introducing the Australian singer to American audiences. On that record, she wrote what would ultimately become the official, published lyrics to Miles Davis' classic “Blue in Green." ...

Patrick Brennan: Rhythms of Passion

Read "Patrick Brennan: Rhythms of Passion" reviewed by Ludwig vanTrikt

Since moving to New York City in 1975, one-time bassist/painter Patrick Brennan has crafted a musical path that is open in its candor and indebtedness to all facets of black music. Much like trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith, the alto saxophonist brews a thicket of his own distinct musical language that “unlike much contemporaneous vanguard music is ...

Don Aliquo: The Man, The Music, The Journey

Read "Don Aliquo: The Man, The Music, The Journey" reviewed by Ludwig vanTrikt

Geography is a central theme in the life and artistry of Pittsburgh's native son, Don Aliquo. The saxophonist, educator and bandleader is part of a rich steel town jazz lineage which includes his father, Don Aliquo Sr., a performing artist and teacher in his own right. There is also a metaphorical geography, in which Aliquo covers ...

Chris Jentsch: Cycles and Reflecting on the Journey

Read "Chris Jentsch: Cycles and Reflecting on the Journey" reviewed by Ludwig vanTrikt

John Coltrane once said, “Let the music speak for itself." The guitarist/composer and band leader Christopher Jentsch adds an interesting twist on that subject by opting to describe himself when asked about the broader subject of how to capture his music in his own words. “I think of myself as a composer/guitarist working with contemporary improvisational ...

Chris Byars: Studying Unsung Heroes

Read "Chris Byars: Studying Unsung Heroes" reviewed by Ludwig vanTrikt

[Introduction by Teddy Charles] It's not easy to be Chris Byars. With an incredible array of talents brought to bear on his composition, arrangements, and cooking jazz performances, it's no wonder he's worked his way to the forefront of the myriad of jazz players overwhelming the scene. For me, our felicitous association led to multiple gigs ...

Scott Tinkler: Trumpet Down Under

Read "Scott Tinkler: Trumpet Down Under" reviewed by Ludwig vanTrikt

Bassist/composer Lindsey Horner recently said, “I think one thing that has really changed in the past quarter century is that the music has become so broad, so truly international and genre-encompassing that the days when jazz was one very definable, finite thing are well and truly gone." These remarks also serve to introduce this interview with ...

Michael Marcus: Truth, Love and Soul

Read "Michael Marcus:  Truth, Love and Soul" reviewed by Ludwig vanTrikt

Philadelphia performance artist “Skip" Homer Jackson recently asked my opinion about a number of jazz artists who have been overlooked because they were great stylists who played in the shadows of great players. I immediately thought of Booker Ervin in relationship to John Coltrane; and Booker Little, who ironically was little (no pun intended) appreciated during ...

Trumpeter Rob Mazurek

Read "Trumpeter Rob Mazurek" reviewed by Ludwig vanTrikt

Rob Mazurek is one of jazz's most enigmatic improvisers. A former hard bopper who now dabbles beyond the avant-garde in elements of “musique concrete" and multi-media. Mazurek is a Chicagoan but a world traveler now residing in Brazil (with his wife). Beneath the surface contradictions lies an artists' vision that is at once restless and well ...

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.
