Matt Mayhall

Matt Mayhall is a percussionist, composer, session musician and educator. On his newest album Fanatics (self-released), he leads a trio with Jeff Parker on guitar and Chris Speed on tenor saxophone and clarinet. Stereogum hailed it as one of the best jazz releases of February 2020, calling it “a trio date on which the tunes are simple platforms for extended, bluesy soloing… in a way that recalls Ornette Coleman’s harmolodic theories, while still managing to stay rooted to the ground.” The album was produced, engineered and mixed by Mayhall’s frequent collaborator and GRAMMY-winning producer Paul Bryan.

Read "Tropes" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Tropes. Una meravigliosa avventura sonora. Nonché album di debutto del batterista, multistrumentista e compositore losangelino Matt Mayhall. Nome forse ai più sconosciuto ma con un lasciapassare che parla da solo, batterista nelle ultime sedute di registrazione di Charlie Haden! Anche se l'esperienza che marca decisamente la formazione musicale è quella negli Spain gruppo che miscela rock, ...

Gavin Templeton: In Series

Read "In Series" reviewed by Luigi Sforza

Tenerezza e vigore, delicatezza e fermezza sostanziano la natura di In Series. Affrontando sistematicamente l'ascolto dell'album del sassofonista Gavin Templeton affiorano episodi autenticamente ispirati che, pur non prescindendo dai consolidati precetti che normano il jazz moderno, consegnano al fruitore momenti di indubbia raffinatezza musicale. “Karina," ad esempio, ha la sinuosità intrigante di una ballad tradizionale; ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
