Instrumental Duos

Read "Instrumental Duos" reviewed by Karl Ackermann


The early days of jazz were not always harmonious. Converted dance orchestras often sounded like unbalanced acoustic junkyards; a single violin, cornet, trombone, clarinet, tuba, drums, banjo, and piano, all fighting for attention. The piano was meant to be the glue holding the shrill and boisterous elements together. In 1921 a prodigy pianist named Zez Confrey ...

Lucian Ban, live dalla natia Transilvania

Read "Lucian Ban, live dalla natia Transilvania" reviewed by Neri Pollastri


Musicista prolifico, come leader o sideman, il pianista di origini rumene Lucian Ban presenta per la Sunnyside due lavori, entrambi ricchi di suggestione e registrati in concerto nell'identico luogo--la Baroque Hall di Timisoara, in quella Transilvania di cui l'artista è originario--e tuttavia estremamente diversi tra loro. Abraham Burton, Lucian Ban Blacksalt

Matthew Shipp: The Piano Equation

Read "The Piano Equation" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala


È difficile non riconoscere fin dalle prime battute lo stile pianistico di Matthew Shipp: l'articolazione del tocco che combina geometrie complesse, dure, spigolose, e volate leggere, quasi noncuranti su alcuni passaggi; l'indugiare sulle sonorità scure di certi accordi e cluster; il soffermarsi su motivi ostinati, liberandosi di essi attraverso virate repentine di atmosfera; i contrasti dinamici. ...

Craig Taborn: Compass Confusion

Read "Compass Confusion" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic


Compass Confusion, the long hoped for return of Craig Taborn's depth defying, solo-gone-quintet from Junk Magic (Thirsty Ear, 2004), climaxes early and often and, however you like to be lured, It pulls you along with a lush velvet hook in your mouth. Reeling it in is a struggle but a blessing. We know that. We get ...

Craig Taborn: Compass Confusion

Read "Compass Confusion" reviewed by John Sharpe


Although a peerless pianist, Craig Taborn has been captivated by electronics since the age of 12, and he scratches that itch big-time on Compass Confusion. The role of post-production treatments in the creation of jazz records has a long history, from Orrin Keepnews piecing together the issued version of Thelonious Monk's 1956 classic “Brilliant Corners" from ...

Ivo Perelman Trio: Garden Of Jewels

Read "Garden Of Jewels" reviewed by Mark Corroto


The subtitle of the Ivo Perelman Trio's Garden Of Jewels should be The Pandemic Session. Recorded on June 17, 2020 in the midst of a pandemic when clubs and restaurants were shuttered and “six feet apart" was the clarion call of the moment, the music is a chronicle of the times. At least, that is the ...

The Volcanic World Of Pyroclastic Records

Read "The Volcanic World Of Pyroclastic Records" reviewed by Mark Corroto


As listeners we so often typecast musicians and music labels. Artists are pigeonholed into silos: classical, jazz, rock, blues, pop, etc.. Go into any record store (if you can find a brick & mortar one) and this segregation, a forced separation, is also evident. Even streaming services are divided in this manner. Maybe it is just ...

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!
