Dave Milligan: Momento

Read "Momento" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay


Momento is a piano trio album, its instrumental line-up of piano, bass and drums being common to many jazz recordings over the decades. But Dave Milligan and his compatriots--bassist Danilo Gallo and drummer U. T. Gandhi--have produced a distinctive and beautiful set of tunes which set this particular piano trio apart from its peers. The explanation ...

Daniele Cervigni: Emily Dikinsongs

Read "Emily Dikinsongs" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


Coniugare in musica le poesie di grandi autori della letteratura non è affatto facile. Si tratta di conciliare la metrica musicale con quella poetica, in una sintesi che risulti fantasiosa, equilibrata e rispettosa degli autori. Le opere pretenziose e stucchevoli non mancano ma non è così per il debutto di Daniele Cervigni, giovane chitarrista e compositore ...

Grégoire Maret / Romain Collin / Bill Frisell: Americana

Read "Americana" reviewed by Karl Ackermann


Harmonica player and composer Grégoire Maret is not a familiar name in the U.S. but he should be. The New York-based artist has recorded with Jimmy Scott, Jacky Terrasson, Steve Coleman and Five Elements, Charlie Hunter, Terri Lyne Carrington, Pat Metheny and many others. The very bankable musician has appeared on over seventy-five releases as a ...

Savoy Brown: City Night

Read "City Night" reviewed by Doug Collette


Savoy Brown's City Night is a declarative return to the blues after the group digressed into more rock-oriented territory on Witchy Feelin' (Ruf Records, 2017). As a result, this album under the aegis of founder and titular leader Kim Simmonds has more in common with The Devil to Pay (Ruf Records, 2015), an equally uncompromising tribute ...

Savoy Brown: Witchy Feelin'

Read "Witchy Feelin'" reviewed by Doug Collette


Even though the impact of the music isn't any less potent, the artist designation for Witchy Feelin' is notably different than that of the prior album by Kim Simmonds and Savoy Brown. In an act of combined humility and self-confidence on the part of the leader, the billing goes wholly to the band and that spirit ...

Anthony Wilson - Seasons: Live at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (2011) CD/DVD

Anthony Wilson - Seasons: Live at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (2011) CD/DVD

This album is credited to Anthony Wilson and rightfully so, as this master guitarist/composer/arranger wrote the four-part “Seasons" suite and led a quartet of virtuosic plectrists to perform it before a live audience. But perhaps the real leader of this session isn't a person but rather, the exquisitely handcrafted guitars of John Monteleone. Monteleone has been ...

Mark Knopfler - Get Lucky (2009)

By Mark Saleski So I was bored the other night and decided to flip through the on-demand offerings on the cable, and came across a short concert segment of Deep Purple doing “Space Truckin." This was mid-1970s excess at its purest: long hair, satin pants, platform shoes, banks of amplifiers, explosions. Yeah, Ritchie Blackmore sure did ...

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!
