Noah Preminger: Contemptment

Read "Contemptment" reviewed by Mark Corroto

If you followed saxophonist Noah Preminger's early career you might have read an interview where he revealed his fascination with boxing. The fact that he trained in the sweet science for nearly a decade while making music is evident in the pugilistic blues heard on self-released albums Pivot: Live At The 55 Bar (2015) and Dark ...

¡Golpe!, Josephine Davies & Ken Field

Read "¡Golpe!, Josephine Davies & Ken Field" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

Threesomes! If that's your thing, go for it, but in jazz there's no doubt of the dominance of trios as a common format. Four outstanding trios highlight this edition of OMJ: Portugal's explorative duo ¡Golpe! adds the outstanding bassist Masa Kamaguchi for its excellent new release, Totem, while two others maintain what's working: Bill Frisell with ...

Russ Lossing Trio: The Ways

Read "The Ways" reviewed by Mark Corroto

The Russ Lossing Trio should record more. Ways, which follows the excellent Oracle (hatOLOGY, 2011), is just the second recording this longstanding trio has released. More music from them would allow fans to study the development of the chemistry between Lossing, bassist Masa Kamaguchi, and drummer Billy Mintz. The instantaneous telepathy between piano, bass, ...

Russ Lossing, Jasper Blom and More

Read "Russ Lossing, Jasper Blom and More" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

Sometimes a recording catches you by surprise. Such is the case with Swedish bassist Thomas Markusson's Open. Only one of the musicians was familiar, the pianist Naoko Sakata who moved from Japan to Sweden where she could play the kind of music that wasn't popular in Japan. Sakata definitely found the right company. Markusson is a ...

Rema Hasumi: Billows Of Blue

Read "Billows Of Blue" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Pianist Rema Hasumi, Japanese-born and now New York City-based, calls her compositions sound stories. Those “stories" sound like tales drifting out of a dream land: untethered to time and place, free-flowing and graceful, strikingly pretty, sometimes spooky, and starkly rendered, with the input of her empathic trio that includes bassist Masa Kamaguchi and drummer Randy Peterson, ...

Rob Garcia: Finding Love in an Oligarchy on a Dying Planet

Read "Finding Love in an Oligarchy on a Dying Planet" reviewed by Luigi Sforza

Finding In A Oligarchy on a Dying Planet è un disco davvero interessante; medita sul destino del mondo, sulle relazioni sociali, sulle storture e le ipocrisie contemporanee, ma anche sulla possibilità di realizzare il sogno di vivere su un pianeta migliore. Chiunque lo associasse ai lavori degli anni '50 di Abbey Lincoln e Max Roach, ...

Rob Garcia: Finding Love in an Oligarchy on a Dying Planet

Read "Finding Love in an Oligarchy on a Dying Planet" reviewed by Franz A. Matzner

A complex amalgam, drummer-composer Rob Garcia's Finding Love in an Oligarchy on a Dying Planetis as densely constructed and provoking as its title. Despite the socially conscious themes that its track titles, lyrics, and multi-layered musical journeys explore, Garcia has made clear this is not a protest album. At least not in the typical sense.

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.
