Moers Festival Interviews: Julien Desprez

Read "Moers Festival Interviews: Julien Desprez" reviewed by Martin Longley


It might seem that the Parisian guitarist Julien Desprez has made a recent storming of the jazz and improvisation scenes. He did make lightning moves and sounds at Jazzfest Berlin and the Moers Festival in 2018 and '19, but Desprez was active nearly a decade ago—though enjoying a much lower profile. He even toured the UK ...

I.P.A.: Bashing Mushrooms

Read "Bashing Mushrooms" reviewed by Troy Dostert


Comprised of an impressive roster of Scandinavian all-stars, I.P.A. might only need a better name if the group is to break through to wider notice. Harnessing its commitment to post-bop freedom to thoughtful tunecraft, the band's music is both accessible and tough-edged, cerebral and hard-grooving in equal measure. The quintet's first Cuneiform release, I Just Did ...

Angles 9: Beyond Us

Read "Beyond Us" reviewed by John Sharpe


Swedish saxophonist Martin Küchen's versatile Angles agglomeration has appeared in assorted sizes from a trio up to a nonet. But whatever the dimensions, it possesses the familiar virtues of driving riffs, explosive soloing, and elemental yet affecting melodies. Beyond Us, recorded live during Groningen's splendid Summer Jazz Cycling Tour is no different. It's the fourth release ...

Rob Mazurek: Desert Encrypts Vol. 1

Read "Desert Encrypts Vol. 1" reviewed by Karl Ackermann


It was twenty-five years ago, in 1994, that Rob Mazurek first emerged with Man Facing East (Hep Jazz), a quartet recording solidly positioned in the post/hard bop style. Even in the interpretations of standards, there were clues that the cornetist/composer was a restless soul. In the intervening years, Mazurek has rapidly charted his own dissident destiny ...

Atomic: Pet Variations

Read "Pet Variations" reviewed by John Eyles


Formed in the spring of 2000, Scandinavian “supergroup" Atomic recorded and released their first album Feet Music (Jazzland) in 2001. The years since have been remarkably stable for the quintet; they have produced albums at an impressive rate of about a disc a year, including two collaborations with Ken Vandermark's School Days group. The only change ...

Atomic: Pet Variations

Read "Pet Variations" reviewed by Mark Corroto


The Scandinavian supergroup Atomic has always pushed back against “tradition," be it the customary sound of Nordic jazz or--maybe more importantly--what most believe to be the avant-garde. Each member has a thriving career outside the quintet: bassist Ingebrigt Håker Flaten with The Young Mothers, The Thing, Rempis Percussion Quartet, and his own trio and quartets, drummer ...

Magnus Broo Trio: Rules

Read "Rules" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero


Tre improvvisatori tra i più attivi e innovativi della scena scandinava (in ordine sparso Atomic, Angles, The Thing, Jan Garbarek, per citare solo alcune collaborazioni) che si cimentano con una manciata di standard che più standard non si può. Non stiamo parlando di fake news ma Rules album a nome Magnus Broo Trio uscito per Moserobie, ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
