Luke Bergman

Luke Bergman is a multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and recording artist based in Seattle, WA. His voice, bass and guitar work have been utilized in groups he writes for like Heatwarmer as well as sideperson work with Bill Frisell, Cuong Vu, Andrew Bird and others. His output as a solo artist focuses on his arranging abilities of jazz, folk and pop repetoire. He's made an album of solo guitar, and multiple albums that feature his pedal steel guitar playing. His most recent release, "Worx," is a home-recorded collection of ten original compositions. Recording all the instruments he plays, the album focuses on contrapuntal melodies and creative orchestration and has the feeling of the soundtrack of "Donkey Kong Country as a Hallmark movie."

Bill Frisell: Harmony

Read "Harmony" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

"Perché no? Non c'è motivo per cui non puoi inserire “Lush Life" e il tradizionale “Red River Valley" nello stesso album. Sono entrambe bellissime canzoni ." Il criterio di Bill Frisell nella costruzione di questo lavoro è espresso con parole semplici, che rimandano alla schiettezza delle intenzioni. Il quartetto coinvolto, di natura cameristica, fu presentato per ...

Bill Frisell Harmony Quartet a Trento

Read "Bill Frisell Harmony Quartet a Trento" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

Bill Frisell Harmony Quartet Rassegna Transiti Teatro Sanbapolis Trento 24.10.2019 Togliere anziché aggiungere, e in questo processo mirare all'essenza. Molti, nel campo della musica e dell'arte in generale, hanno affermato questo principio e perseguito tale idea. Non facile: bisogna sapere bene dove si vuole arrivare, cosa sfrondare, perché. Nella ...

Bill Frisell: Harmony

Read "Harmony" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Iconic guitarist-composer Bill Frisell has chosen to primarily emphasize the Americana side of his music for his debut as a leader for Blue Note Records. When Frisell organized his new band with vocalist Petra Haden, cellist Hank Roberts and guitarist-bassist Luke Bergman he was struck by the fact that all of the band members but him ...

Cuong Vu 4Tet: Change In The Air

Read "Change In The Air" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Seattle-based trumpeter Cuong Vu continues his collaboration with guitarist Bill Frisell that began with It's Mostly Residual (AUAND, 2006). His previous 4Tet release, Ballet: The Music Of Michael Gibbs (RareNoise Records, 2017), was also made by the same personnel. But this time, instead of interpretations of an outside composer, every group member contributes compositionally, including Vu, ...

Cuong Vu 4Tet: Change In The Air

Read "Change In The Air" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Trumpeter Cuong Vu introduced this particular 4tet in 2017, with Ballet: The Music of Michael Gibbs (RareNoiseRecords). An all star affair that included guitarist Bill Frisell, bassist Luke Bergman and drummer Ted Poor, it seemed to signal something of a gentler Cuong Vu, with a music that had a spaciousness, patience and ruminative quality that didn't ...

Carmen Rothwell: The Art of Intuition

Read "Carmen Rothwell: The Art of Intuition" reviewed by Paul Rauch

Seattle, a city synonymous with alternative rock, has long sustained a provincial jazz culture, without a signature sound, but with an openness to innovative, progressive invention. To outside jazz partisans, the city is known for phenomenal high school talent that usually flies the coop, heading east for conservatory training and to pursue professional ambitions.

Cuong Vu: Ballet: The Music Of Michael Gibbs

Read "Ballet: The Music Of Michael Gibbs" reviewed by Nicola Negri

Cuong Vu si muove da sempre in una dimensione stilistica misteriosa, che trae ispirazione tanto dalla tradizione del jazz--non è raro ascoltarlo in concerto rivisitare a suo modo gli standard più classici--quanto dalle correnti più avventurose della downtown scene newyorchese, in cui ha mosso i primi passi a metà anni novanta. Questa capacità di confrontarsi con ...

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.
