Mark Segger: Lift Off

Read "Lift Off" reviewed by Glenn Astarita


This Canadian band throws almost everything imaginable at the studio walls in synchronous fashion. And while the album may be classified as an EP, due to its 29-minute length, quality is the underlying factor throughout. Based out of Edmonton, Segger started this band via its first album, The Beginning (18th Note Records, 2011). Nine-years later, the ...

Mark Segger Sextet: Lift Off

Read "Lift Off" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


Fracas and focus are not mutually exclusive concepts. In purely linguistic terms, invoking the label “avant-garde" when addressing sound often calls to mind a melee-as-music scenario. The audible truth, however, is something else entirely. An artist's work can lean far to the left without falling off the comprehensibility scale, and drummer Mark Segger makes that argument ...

chuffDRONE, Treesearch & Mark Segger

Read "chuffDRONE, Treesearch & Mark Segger" reviewed by Maurice Hogue


This episode is a mixed bag of some newer releases and some recent ones definitely worthy of revisiting. The Austrian quintet chuffDrone takes an interesting approach to its highly polished improvisation, while the duo of bassist Rob Clutton and saxophonist Tony Malaby create an album of gems on Offering; it's the kind of personal connection that ...

Parker Abbott Trio: Elevation

Read "Elevation" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan


It's hard to imagine a musical palette with more sonic possibilities: It's a bunch of 88s: two pianos, combined with an array of electric keyboards: Moogs, MicroKorgs (sounds like small aliens from the planet Korgon), glockenspiels, melodicas, a Hammond B-3 organ, a Nord Electro, a Microbrute (a diminutive schoolyard bully?), a Moog Sub Phatty. And throw ...

Kyle Brenders Quartet: Offset

Read "Offset" reviewed by Troy Collins


A former student of visionary composer Anthony Braxton, Canadian multi-instrumentalist Kyle Brenders subtly expands upon the idiomatic language of his former Wesleyan professor on Offset, the second album by his self-titled Quartet, following 2010's Karst. In addition to numerous other projects, Brenders engages his interest in the oeuvre of iconic soprano saxophonist Steve Lacy as a ...

Mark Segger Sextet - The Beginning (2011)

Debut albums can often be fun to explore, since you're not just exploring the music, but the artist, too. They're funner still when the artist bolts out the gate with his/her own unique plan of attack instead of the timid, first steps of an artist who's still feeling his way around by mimicking his influences. Canadian ...

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!
