Lukas Ligeti

Transcending the boundaries of genre, the Austrian, New-York-City-based composer-percussionist Lukas Ligeti has developed a musical style of his own that draws upon downtown New York experimentalism, contemporary classical music, jazz, electronica, as well as world music, particularly from Africa. Known for his non-conformity and diverse interests, Lukas creates music ranging from the through-composed to the free-improvised, often exploring polyrhythmic/polytempo structures, non-tempered tunings, and non-western elements. Other major sources of inspiration include experimental mathematics, computer technology, architecture and visual art, sociology and politics, and travel

Read "Meeting At The Parting Place" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Coming at improvisational music from the classical realm, pianist Thollem McDonas remains resolutely outside of the main stream of the jazz world. Primarily inspired by, as he puts it in his liner notes to Meeting at the Parting Place, ..."European concert music from the Renaissance to the 20th Century and jazz, particularly of the '60s and ...

Lukas Ligeti, Thollem McDonas: Imaginary Images

Read "Imaginary Images" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Entrambi prossimi alla cinquantina (Ligeti, figlio di György, la varcherà a giugno), i due performer qui riuniti si confrontano sul terreno della libera improvvisazione, pratica di cui d'altro canto il catalogo Leo pullula. Lo fanno attraverso pezzi tutto sommato brevi (dai tre ai nove minuti), il che--specificatamente in presenza di questa economia di mezzi--non può che ...

Hypercolor: Hypercolor

Read "Hypercolor" reviewed by Dave Wayne

The past few months have seen a stream of truly--and in some cases mind-bogglingly--wonderful guitar-centric power trio albums. Yet, the eponymous debut of the Brooklyn-based avant-jazz-rock band Hypercolor stands out, but not for the reasons you'd think. Sure, the trio consists of musical brainiacs James Ilgenfritz and Lukas Ligeti; genre omnivores whose own work and collaborations ...

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.
