Charles Lloyd &The Marvels + Lucinda Williams: Vanished Gardens

Read "Vanished Gardens" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

At age 80 legendary saxophonist/composer Charles Lloyd shows no signs of slowing down. In addition to his New Quartet--most recently documented on Passin' Thru (Blue Note Records, 2017)--he has collaborated with the Greek singer Maria Farantouri on Athens Concert (ECM, 2011); played duets with Quartet pianist Jason Moran on Hagar's Song (ECM, 2013); and produced a ...


Sokratis Sinopoulos: Eight Winds

Read "Eight Winds" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Ecco un lavoro davvero molto particolare, che prende ispirazione dalla musica tradizionale per realizzare impasti di impianto jazzistico, traendoli per giunta da una regione--la Grecia--la cui tradizione, splendida, è stata piuttosto sottovalutata in questo contesto. Ne è autore Sokratis Sinopoulos, poco più che quarantenne specialista della lyra, strumento tradizionale dell'area egea, che ha coltivato ...


Charles Lloyd: Wild Man Dance

Read "Wild Man Dance" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Wonders seem to never cease where Charles Lloyd is concerned. In a career spanning more than half a century, Lloyd's well of creativity has never run dry.

Charles Lloyd - Maria Farantouri: Athens Concert

Read "Athens Concert" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Sono bastati pochi ascolti per individuare il lato della sfaccettata forma jazzistica di Charles Lloyd che combacia con quello di Maria Farantouri, cantante solenne e con alcuni tratti lirici. E' l'ineffabile materia di cui è fatta la poesia a dare un denominatore comune a questi due artisti, una materia fortemente sedimentata in una lunga frequentazione (i ...

Eleni Karaindrou: Elegy of the Uprooting

Read "Elegy of the Uprooting" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Se Eleni Karaindrou fosse una cantautrice rock, questo album avrebbe potuto intitolarsi “Greatest Hits Live", ma trattandosi di un'affermata compositrice classica greca probabilmente non sarebbe stato dignitoso. Ma effettivamente non si tratta di nient'altro che di una riproposizione dal vivo di una selezione dei suoi lavori per il cinema cuciti insieme a formare una lunga suite ...

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.
