Read "Stråk på himlen och stora hus" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

AP6C: Layers

Read "Layers" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Have you been wondering lately, where all the thoughtful music has gone? Today we have universities teaming with technical wunderkinds who can flawlessly navigate “Giant Steps" or “Cherokee," and recordings that are showcases of dexterity and complexity, but much of it is devoid of the essence of meaning, in other words, soul. That is, until you ...

Ståhls Trio: Källtorp Sessions Volume One

Read "Källtorp Sessions Volume One" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

I trii con un vibrafono al posto di pianoforte o chitarra non sono mai stati tutta questa gran consuetudine, nel jazz. Per il semplice motivo che non sono mai stati troppo consueti i vibrafonisti, spesso, oltre tutto, impiegati come voce, come timbro, in organici più ampi. Il quarantottenne svedese Mattias Ståhl, accompagnandosi a ...

Angles 9: Beyond Us

Read "Beyond Us" reviewed by John Sharpe

His Källtorp Sessions, Volume One is comprised of nine tracks averaging 3¾ minutes, perfect for those 45 rpm singles. The Stähls Trio of Mattias Ståhl (vibraphone), Joe ...

The Way Ahead: Bells, Ghosts and other Saints

Read "Bells, Ghosts and other Saints" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Perry Farrell, of the rock band Jane's Addiction, might have said/sung it best in 1988, on the track “Ted, Just Admit it..." when he whispered “Nothing's Shocking." Indeed, nothing is in the 21st century. Marcel Duchamp's painting “Nude Descending a Staircase, No. 2" (1912) is mostly admired today, and certainly not the trigger for a riot. ...

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.
