Martin Kuchen

Martin Küchen was born 1966 in Eskilstuna, Sweden. He wanted to take lessons on drums, but his parents made him "choose" the flute instead, which became his main instrument from the age of nine until he stopped when he was twenty. When he was thirteen he started to sing in a rock band. That group ended after some years, but he never have stopped singing. From 1985 to 1987 he attended the Music school of Skurup, Sweden. It was a very jazzorientated education, but when he persuaded a bass and drums and piano to join him playing a standard on his tenor saxophone (which he started playing when he was fifteen), but in an Ayleruesqe way, they laughed him to pieces

Roots Magic, Audio Cave Artists & Alan Braufman

Read "Roots Magic, Audio Cave Artists & Alan Braufman" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

A new release by the Italian Quartet Roots Magic is always welcome. Their contemporary and improvisatory approach to old blues tunes and the way they always put their own touch on the music of avant-garde jazz composers is kind of unique on the European scene. Take Root Among the Stars, out on Clean Feed, should be ...

Angles 9: Beyond Us

Read "Beyond Us" reviewed by John Sharpe

Swedish saxophonist Martin Küchen's versatile Angles agglomeration has appeared in assorted sizes from a trio up to a nonet. But whatever the dimensions, it possesses the familiar virtues of driving riffs, explosive soloing, and elemental yet affecting melodies. Beyond Us, recorded live during Groningen's splendid Summer Jazz Cycling Tour is no different. It's the fourth release ...

Angles 9: Beyond Us

Read "Beyond Us" reviewed by John Bricker

Across their discography, Angles 9 constantly evoke powerful emotions through finely-tuned chaos. In the near-traditional jams of 2014's Injuries and the abstract noise of 2017's Disappeared Behind the Sun, the sheer kinetic energy of nine gifted players, led by saxophonist Martin Küchen, working together while competing for a moment in the spotlight, creates unique and spellbinding ...

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.
