Mark Dresser Seven: Ain’t Nothing But A Cyber Coup & You

Read "Ain’t Nothing But A Cyber Coup & You" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Brani ampi (sei) intercalati da fugaci “tavole preparatorie" (non più di un minuto), minimali anche in quanto a dispiegamento di forze in campo, con una dedica iniziale e una finale, fissano l'istantanea, la radiografia, di questo nuovo lavoro del notevole settetto riunito da Mark Dresser già tre anni or sono (una sola variante di organico: il ...

Read "Ain't Nothing But a Cyber Coup & You" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

This is the second recording for the Mark Dresser Seven, a chamber jazz group led by bassist Mark Dresser with an unusual front line of flute, reeds, violin and trombone. Their first CD was highlighted by satiric social commentary and tributes to deceased colleagues. This new one follows the same pattern. Two tributes bookend ...

Mark Dresser Seven: Ain't Nothing But a Cyber Coup & You

Read "Ain't Nothing But a Cyber Coup & You" reviewed by Troy Dostert

One of the living legends of the acoustic bass, a relentless innovator and fearsome composer, Mark Dresser has spent decades at the forefront of creative jazz. His Ain't Nothing But a Cyber Coup & You is a follow-up to 2016's well-received Sedimental You (Clean Feed), a septet record that combined Dresser's skilled songcraft with potent political ...

Mark Dresser Seven: Sedimental You

Read "Sedimental You" reviewed by John Sharpe

So much has been written about Mark Dresser's brilliance as a bassist that his skill as a composer can be in danger of being forgotten. But showcases like Sedimental You and its predecessor Nourishments (Clean Feed, 2014) should more than redress that potential imbalance. His artfully arranged structures prove engaging vehicles for the improvisational insight of ...

Read "Sedimental You" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Una rinnovata vena creativa accompagna l'attuale stagione (peraltro in vigore--diciamo così -da diversi anni) di colui che fu il bassista di gruppi storici dell'avanguardia jazzistica quali il quartetto di Anthony Braxton e vari ensemble riuniti da Tim Berne. Mark Dresser, anni sessantaquattro, si cimenta in questo suo nuovo lavoro con un organico di dimensioni allargate, come ...

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.
