Sao Paulo Underground: Cantos Invisíveis

Read "Cantos Invisíveis" reviewed by Troy Collins

Democratically led by Chicago-based sound explorer Rob Mazurek, São Paulo Underground has been defying genre conventions and musical boundaries for almost a decade. Originally formed with percussionist Mauricio Takara and keyboardist Guilherme Granado during Mazurek's sojourn in Brazil (2000-2005), the ensemble's membership has undergone a subtle change on its fifth album with the addition of Swiss-born ...

Sao Paulo Underground: Cantos Invisíveis

Read "Cantos Invisíveis" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Cantos Invisíveis translates from Portuguese as “invisible corners/songs" or “disappearing corners/songs:" a fitting title for trans-national music that often seems to come from everywhere at once. The international trio's electro-acoustic sound blends music from North and South America, Africa and Asia, including stylistic references from traditional folk, modern jazz, rock and electronica. It's a dense, communal ...

Sao Paulo Underground: Cantos Invisiveis

Read "Cantos Invisiveis" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Suoni da galassie lontane, scie cosmiche che trasportano in altri mondi, sfrigolii di elettroni che invadono lo spazio fisico, riti sciamanici e nenie incantatorie, suggestioni tribali e distorsioni industriali. Una giungla intricata di sonorità acustiche ed elettroniche nella quale scrittura e improvvisazione sfumano i contorni per trasformarsi in visione. È il nuovo mondo creato da Rob ...

Saalfelden 2015

Read "Saalfelden 2015" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Memorabile edizione la trentaseiesima del Saalfelden Jazz Festival. Forse il caldo più consono ai mari del sud che ad una località alpina ha sciolto anche gli animi più rigidi, ha favorito la libera circolazione delle idee, ha creato un clima di condivisione e stimolo artistico. Forse gli dei della musica hanno soffiato un vento benevolo sulle ...

Rob Mazurek Exploding Star Orchestra: Galactic Parables: Volume 1

Read "Galactic Parables: Volume 1" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

In the past twelve-month period, composer, electronic artist and cornet virtuoso Rob Mazurek has lead on a half-dozen or so different releases. For the most part, each has featured different line ups and formations from solo efforts to large ensembles and each has garnered enough superlatives to tax the thesaurus. And yet again, Mazurek has raised ...

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.
