Christy Doran's Sound Fountain: Lift The Bar

Read "Lift The Bar" reviewed by Ian Patterson

With four records in as many years Christy Doran's Sound Fountain seems in 2020 to have eclipsed New Bag as the guitarist's going concern. However, just because New Bag hasn't recorded since Elsewhere (Double Moon, 2015) doesn't mean that the band, founded in 1997, won't still make a comeback. After all, who could have foreseen the ...

Christy Doran's Sound Fountain: For The Kick Of It

Read "For The Kick Of It" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Released shortly before turning seventy, Christy Doran's third outing with Sound Fountain finds the Irish-born, Lucerne-based guitarist playing as well as at any time during his fifty-year career. It marks a blistering return for Doran to electric trio terrain, following the experimentation of 144 Strings for a Broken Chord (Between the Lines, 2018)—compositions for twenty electric ...


Yves Theiler Trio: Dance in a Triangle

Read "Dance in a Triangle" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Nuova prova per il trio dell'interessante pianista svizzero Yves Theiler, a quattro anni dal precedente Out of the Box, rispetto al quale vi è adesso un nuovo contrabbassista, Luca Sisera, mentre rimane alla batteria l'antico collaboratore del leader, Lukas Mantel. La cifra della formazione è molto moderna: forte pariteticità, significativa varietà di atmosfere, ma ...


Christy Doran's Sound Fountain: Belle Epoque

Read "Belle Epoque" reviewed by Maurizio Comandini

Ancora tre anni e il chitarrista Christy Doran, nato in Irlanda ma residente in Svizzera da tantissimi anni, taglierà il traguardo dei settant'anni. Ma siamo sicuri che le candeline le spegnerà con il botto che verrà fuori da un accordo energico sparato dalla sua chitarra elettrica nell'amplificatore di turno. Un botto fantasmagorico, come le avventure musicali ...

Tripmadame: Moving

Read "Moving" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Questo bel CD della chitarrista svizzera Andrea Isenegger, con il suo trio Tripmadame, è pieno di grazia e coerenza e dipana 10 composizioni (tutte firmate dalla giovane chitarrista) che si intrecciano fra di loro senza sbalzi apparenti, lievi e ben levigate, come piccole opere lignee, pazientemente smussate e lucidate dalla mano dell'artigiano che le ha realizzate. ...


Ghost Town Trio: No Tits But Hits

Read "No Tits But Hits" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Questo bel trio svizzero si è formato nel 2009 con un ingaggio di tre mesi in un Techno Bar che in precedenza era stato un Night Club. Nel bel mezzo del quartiere a luci rosse di Zurigo. Evidentemente le ambiguità di fondo dello scenario hanno portato bene a questo piccolo gruppo di giovani musicisti che ha ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
