Marcelo Dos Reis: Points

Read "Points" reviewed by John Sharpe

Points unites four partners in crime, who may be familiar from excellent albums such as Chamber 4 (FMR, 2015) and For Sale (Clean Feed, 2015).

Frame Trio: Luminária

Read "Luminária" reviewed by John Sharpe

Chamber 4: City Of Light

Read "City Of Light" reviewed by John Sharpe

Marcelo Dos Reis / Angelica V. Salvi: Concentric Rinds

Read "Concentric Rinds" reviewed by John Sharpe

Guitarist Marcelo dos Reis has become a fixture on the Lisbon experimental music scene, where he also helms the newly created Cipsela imprint. His guitar contributed an attractive wild card element to Chamber 4's eponymous release (FMR, 2015) and he has worked with Elliott Sharp, Burton Greene and Evan Parker among others. Among his many outlets ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
