Camilia Nebbia: Colibri Rojo

Read "Colibri Rojo" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic


Tutored by none other than Marilyn Crispell and Tim Berne, young pioneering saxophonist Camila Nebbia cannot be held totally responsible for her flexible idiosyncrasies. Surely both elders must have mentioned their ideas of musical reflexiveness somewhere in the laboratory. Sketchy, skittish, lean and peerless, Nebbia rarely takes the chance to sweeten the pot. Instead ...

Dominik Wania: Lonely Shadows

Read "Lonely Shadows" reviewed by Friedrich Kunzmann


Keith Jarrett's The Köln Concert (1975) may still be regarded as the undisputed milestone in ECM's rich history of solo piano recordings. But that doesn't mean that other landmark albums such as Paul Bley's Open, To Love (1973), Richie Beirach's Hubris (1973) or later releases like Stefano Bollani's Piano Solo (2005) and Marilyn Crispell's Vignettes (2007)—among ...

Instrumental Duos

Read "Instrumental Duos" reviewed by Karl Ackermann


The early days of jazz were not always harmonious.

Read "Northwestern Songs" reviewed by Friedrich Kunzmann


A vibrant modern jazz hub, Norway is famous for having introduced the likes of Jan Garbarek, Terje Rypdal, Jon Christensen and Arild Andersen to the international jazz landscape--all of whom had brought something fundamentally new to the jazz tradition in the '70s. As chance would have it, each of the mentioned heavyweights were also mainly at ...

Joe Lovano: Finding New Adventures

Read "Joe Lovano: Finding New Adventures" reviewed by R.J. DeLuke


The loss of gig and the accompanying income stream, caused by the insidious and evil coronavirus, has hurt musicians across all genres. It has separated them from friends and band mates, from projects and from going to special places—physically and artistically. Coping with it is the order of the day. It has created some dark moments ...

Ivo Perelman: The Purity of Desire

Read "The Purity of Desire" reviewed by John Sharpe


Tenor saxophonist Ivo Perelman prolifically documents his work, his discography growing almost by the week. But he finds new things to say and new ways of saying them, even with his most regular collaborators. Witness the stream of superlative recordings he has made with pianist Matthew Shipp. But, at the same time, the New York-based Brazilian ...

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!
