Marc Ribot

Born:

Marc Ribot (pronounced REE-bow) was born in Newark, New Jersey in 1954. As a teen, he played guitar in various garage bands while studying with his mentor, Haitian classical guitarist and composer Frantz Casseus. In 1978, Ribot crossed the river to New York City, where he served as sideman for such musicians as jazz organist Jack McDuff and legendary soul shouter Wilson Pickett. Ribot began his five-year stint as a member of the Lounge Lizards (John Lurie's innovative and influential Downtown jazz ensemble) in 1984. At the time Marc's playing, which blended elements of classic Blues guitar with the ironic No Wave/Knitting Factory aesthetic, caught the ear of a number of artists who were also interested in amalgamating and disrupting disparate musical traditions

Ches Smith / We All Break: Path of Seven Colors

Read "Path of Seven Colors" reviewed by Karl Ackermann


For some time, drummer/composer Ches Smith kept his interest in the Voudou music of Haiti at bay. Recognizing himself as an outsider in that world, he researched, listened, studied, and after years brought a project to fruition. Smith's group We All Break released their self-titled, self-produced debut in 2017 and received less attention than deserved. Now ...

Take Five with Matt Clark

Read "Take Five with Matt Clark" reviewed by AAJ Staff


Meet Matt Clark I'm a guitarist and composer from Brighton, England. My career has spanned 35 years, encompassing genres as broad as jazz, blues, alternative, experimental, and electronic music. The year of COVID-19 and lockdown has been both testing and inspiring. Lack of live music and in-person collaboration has meant rethinking my musical output. ...

Dave Douglas: Marching Music

Read "Marching Music" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


Gli intenti che stanno alla base del nuovo disco di Dave Douglas e la data di registrazione sono significativi. Come scrive il trombettista nelle note di copertina, il progetto è stato concepito come musica da ascoltare in cuffia durante le manifestazioni di protesta a favore del clima, dei diritti civili e di tutte le altre azioni ...

James Brandon Lewis, Chad Taylor: Live In Willisau

Read "Live In Willisau" reviewed by Vic Albani


Il set finale dell'edizione 2019 del festival di Willisau in Svizzera (uno degli appuntamenti di assoluto riferimento del jazz contemporaneo della stagione festivaliera europea) è tra quelli da ricordare. Ovvio che per far sì che questo accada i protagonisti dello stesso debbano essere “a livello" e se, come in questo caso, si chiamano James Brandon Lewis ...

Francesca Naibo: Namatoulee

Read "Namatoulee" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


La lezione di Derek Bailey, volta a estendere la libera ricerca improvvisata sulla chitarra, è stata esemplare ma pochissimi l'hanno seguita. Se negli Stati Uniti spicca Henry Kaiser nel nostro Paese i nomi si contano sulle dita di una mano ed il ricercatore più coerente e implacabile resta Roberto Zorzi. È quindi sorprendente il debutto di ...

Mary Halvorson's Code Girl: Artlessly Falling

Read "Artlessly Falling" reviewed by Vic Albani


Esistono due donne nel mondo del jazz moderno che hanno mostrato di conoscere e capire in toto il genio musicale di Robert Wyatt. La prima, molto tempo fa e quindi in tempi non sospetti, è stata Carla Bley e non c'è altro da aggiungere. La seconda, che è invece colei di cui vogliamo scrivere, è Mary ...

Tim Berne: The Deceptive 4—Live

Read "The Deceptive 4—Live" reviewed by Mark Corroto


The difference between disc one and disc two of Tim Berne's Snakeoil release The Deceptive 4, two live recordings made eight years apart, might be the same difference between Miles Davis' first and second great quintets. Where Davis' The Legendary Prestige Quintet Sessions (Prestige, 2006) with John Coltrane from 1955-56 are stellar, they lack the complex ...

Jason Robinson: Harmonic Constituent

Read "Harmonic Constituent" reviewed by Mark Corroto


If you've ever visited Mendocino County you would have a head start to appreciate saxophonist Jason Robinson's Harmonic Constituent. His week-long retreat to this magnificent Northern California coast inspired this ambitious and diverse recording. Robinson, a musical omnivore previously recorded with the quartet Cosmologic, his Henry Threadgill inspired Janus Ensemble, in duos with Anthony Davis and ...

Artisti Vari; Hal Willner: Angelheaded Hipster: The Songs of Marc Bolan & T. Rex

Read "Angelheaded Hipster: The Songs of Marc Bolan & T. Rex" reviewed by Maurizio Comandini


Il maledetto killer invisibile, che tutto il mondo sta combattendo, si è portato via uno dei produttori più importanti della storia della musica moderna: il geniale, imprevedibile, incontenibile Hal Willner se ne è volato in cielo ai primi di aprile di questo anno terribile. Ha lasciato il pianeta mentre stava assestando gli ultimi colpi d'anca a ...

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!
