Peter Evans / Barry Guy: Syllogistic Moments

Read "Syllogistic Moments" reviewed by John Sharpe

From the first few seconds of the opening “Red Green" onwards, this live recording from trumpeter Peter Evans and bassist Barry Guy is a feat of death defying bravura. The two are among the most utterly distinctive practitioners on their instruments and they create a fast evolving kaleidoscope of preposterous sounds. Evans named his record label ...

Torben Snekkestad & Barry Guy: Slip Slide And Collide

Read "Slip Slide And Collide" reviewed by Enrico Bettinello

Una musica del dettaglio, della sovrapposizione di brevi bagliori e schegge d'ombra. Si incontrano qui i sassofoni del norvegese Torben Snekkestad e il contrabbasso di Barry Guy, dentro tredici cellule di dialogo dichiarate della durata ciascuna di 2 minuti e 16 secondi, in realtà di durata variabile, ma prevalentemente brevi. Un “inganno" apparentemente insignificante, ...

Agustí Fernández/Barry Guy/Ramón López: A Moment's Liberty

Read "A Moment's Liberty" reviewed by Mark Corroto

The term “elegance," is rarely utilized when referring to a jazz recording. In fact, “elegant jass"might be an oxymoronic term. Sure, The Modern Jazz Quartet always performed in formal wear, and Duke Ellington evoked gracefulness in response to his advertised “jungle music," but jazz has always bumped up against the high brow ceiling of more orthodox ...

Agusti Fernandez - Barry Guy - Ramon Lopez: A Moment's Liberty

Read "A Moment's Liberty" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

The powerhouse international trio's third effort radiates an uncanny, or perhaps uncommon framework combining beauty--due to Agusti Fernandez's lyrically rich and gorgeous statements--coupled with power and free-form elaborations. For instance, on the 18-minute opener “A Moment's Liberty," Fernandez opens with solitary phrasings via lush balladry while transmitting a sense of loneliness until the band embarks on ...

Agustí Fernández / Barry Guy / Ramón López: Morning Glory

Read "Morning Glory" reviewed by Mark Corroto

In what could easily mistaken for a release on the ECM label, Morning Glory inhabits that crisp minimalist style so familiar to producer Manfred Eicher. Surprisingly enough, this studio recording, with bonus Live In New York disc, is delivered by three of today's most zealous improvisers and outcats. Formed in 2005, the trio's previous ...

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!
