Nat King Cole: Straighten Up and Fly Right – The Best of Hittin’ the Ramp: The Early Years (1936-1943)

Read "Straighten Up and Fly Right – The Best of Hittin’ the Ramp: The Early Years (1936-1943)" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Hittin' the Ramp: The Early Years (1936-1943) (Resonance Records, 2019) is a treasury of Nat “King" Cole's earliest recorded work, documenting his mastery of jazz piano and vocals long before he became a popular singing star. But at seven CDs or 10 LPs, it's a lot of music, perhaps too much for a casual or curious ...

Read "Sonar With David Torn: Tranceportation (Volume 1 - 2)" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Stillefelt: Stillefelt

Read "Stillefelt" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

British bassist/electronics player Chris Mapp initially formed the Stillefelt trio as a “quiet band" in response to his group Gonimoblast, which can often be quite the opposite, as heard on Gonimoblast Live (Stoney Lane Records, 2017). The band name means “quiet field" in Norwegian. Mapp is joined by Percy Pursglove (trumpet and flugelhorn) and Thomas Seminar ...

Kurt Rosenwinkel Trio: Angels Around

Read "Angels Around" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Jazz guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel's previous album Caipi (Heartcore Records, 2017) was unique in his discography. Not just original music—that was true of many of his previous records—but Brazilian influenced, and featuring his vocals. This set is a call back to the Kurt Rosenwinkel Standards Trio's Reflections (WOMMUSIC, 2009): a selection of mostly modern jazz standards, played ...

Ecliptic: The Path of 01

Read "The Path of 01" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Slovenian jazz guitarist Jani Moder composed all of the music for this project, but it is arranged by the band, and is very much a group sound. Only trumpeter Igor Matković appeared on Moder's previous release Jani Moder's Brain Blender: Abacus (ZKP RTV SLO, 2014), but his role here has expanded from guest to a significant ...

Gary Husband & Markus Reuter: Music Of Our Times

Read "Music Of Our Times" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

But it was cancelled by the pandemic after one show at the Blue Note in Nagoya. Thinking quickly, Husband and Stick Men touch guitarist Markus Reuter booked time ...

Drew Schlesinger & David Torn: Summer Synthesis 1978

Read "Summer Synthesis 1978" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

In the summer of 1978 synthesist/keyboardist Drew Schlesinger had assembled a small studio in his apartment in Ithaca, NY and was composing electronic music. When he heard that local guitarist David Torn (then playing in the Zobo Funn Band) had acquired an ARP Avatar guitar synthesizer--one of the first of its kind--he approached him and asked ...

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.
