Marshall Gilkes

Simply considering the range of music that Marshall Gilkes has played over the course of his career, it would be easy to assume that the trombonist/composer is a musical chameleon, able to alter his sound to fit into whatever situation he finds himself. After all, it seems unlikely that an individual sound would be able to express itself in such diverse contexts as the lush impressionism of the Maria Schneider Orchestra; the exotic chamber jazz of Colombian harpist Edmar Castañeda’s trio; or the fiery combustion of New York’s thriving Latin music scene. But listen to the four albums that Gilkes has released under his own name – in particular his latest, a stunning set of compositions for the WDR Big Band named for its home base, Köln – and it immediately becomes clear how the versatile trombonist can integrate myriad influences into a singular and distinctive voice

Maria Schneider: On Worlds Diverged

Read "Maria Schneider: On Worlds Diverged" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

We stand today at an intersection between two realities. On one side there's digital darkness--an underbelly of networked netherworlds, profiteers building fortunes on the collective back of musicians, sinister forces posing as corporate protagonists--and on the other, pure light given over through nature's gifts, a kindness and humanity that grace daily existence, and the beauty and ...

Maria Schneider: Data Lords

Read "Data Lords" reviewed by Doug Hall

Maria Schneider, jazz pianist, orchestral composer and 2019 NEA Jazz Master, has just released a new double-album, Data Lords (artistShare, 2020), which creates poignant musical imagery about our data-driven world. Schneider, who has been an active advocate for musicians' rights and copyright, has followed-on this impact, citing “big data" companies as manipulators of music, culture and ...

Maria Schneider Orchestra: Data Lords

Read "Data Lords" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

The skillfully designed cover art tells part of the story; a leaf--half as nature intended--the remainder, a circuit board doppelganger. The pastoral soundscapes associated with the music of Grammy-winning composer/bandleader Maria Schneider belie her activist alter-ego. An outspoken critic of copyright protections, prejudicial revenue schemes and the abuses of “big data," Schneider has authored op-eds and ...

Samuel Torres: Alegria

Read "Alegria" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

After delivering a politically-pointed statement in the form of Forced Displacement (Zoho Music, 2015), Colombian percussionist Samuel Torres most certainly could've doubled-down in that direction. There's no shortage of political turmoil across the globe these days, so that move would've been completely understandable. But, as Torres clearly understands, there's something to be said for the power ...

Carlos Henriquez: Dizzy Con Clave

Read "Dizzy Con Clave" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Anche se l'incontro tra jazz e ritmi caraibici è presente fin dagli albori è stato Dizzy Gillespie negli anni quaranta a dare identità e popolarità al genere Afro-Cubano, integrando nel be-bop le musiche Mario Bauza e Machito. Questo tributo alle musiche del grande trombettista è stato inciso nel 2017, anno in cui s'è celebrato il Dizzy ...

Carlos Henriquez: Dizzy Con Clave

Read "Dizzy Con Clave" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

In closing out the liner essay to this savory set recorded live at Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola, bassist Carlos Henriquez succinctly summarizes one of many important points worth noting about the legendary honoree: “Dizzy Gillespie is and always will be the American bridge to Afro-Cuban music," he states. But it need be noted that he doesn't just ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
