Charles Rumback, Kuzu and More

Read "Charles Rumback, Kuzu and More" reviewed by Maurice Hogue


There's a slight Chicago flavour to this episode. Drummer Charles Rumback hooked up with noted New Orleans bassist James Singleton for Rumback's latest recording, Cadillac Turns. In an odd twist of strange, Singleton approached a jet-lagged Rumback in a bar in Sydney Australia and said he had seen Rumback playing in a Chicago bar a few ...

Il meglio del 2016 Secondo Paolo Peviani

Read "Il meglio del 2016 Secondo Paolo Peviani" reviewed by Paolo Peviani


Dal punto di vista discografico, quella del 2016 è stata un'annata molto ricca. Nessun picco straordinario ma tanti buoni, ottimi dischi, da ascoltare e riascoltare con attenzione. Dal mio piccolo e per forza di cose parziale osservatorio, ho avuto l'impressione che i grandi nomi del jazz -al netto di qualche eccezione -non abbiano prodotto grandi cose. ...

Julie Sassoon: Fourtune

Read "Fourtune" reviewed by Duncan Heining


Fourtune is British pianist-composer Julie Sassoon's first quartet recording. Sassoon's musical approach draws in equal measure on her classical training and on a love of jazz and improvised music. This marriage goes far beyond the translation of a pianistic technique from one musical area to another but becomes something far deeper and more powerfully emotionally moving ...

Fabio Delvò: Rastplatz

Read "Rastplatz" reviewed by Dave Wayne


I became aware of Fabio Delvo's music via his recordings with guitarist Jeff Platz. Platz has an ear for first-rate musicianship, and his recordings with lesser-known European musicians such as Delvo, Jan Klare, and Meinrad Kneer have been nothing short of revelatory. The title of Delvo's second album as a leader, Rastplatz, isn't a tribute to ...

Lotz / Kneer: U-EX(perimental)

Read "U-EX(perimental)" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni


In 2009, Dutch flautist Mark Alban Lotz and bassist Meinrad Kneer initiated a monthly creative music series, titled U-EX(perimental), at Centraal Museum in Utrecht, presenting performances of spontaneous free improvisations. After about 120 concerts Lotz and Kneer decided to document some of these unique musical meetings in a tiny studio in Amsterdam--so tiny that there was ...

Klare / Platz / Kneer / Elgart: Modern Primitive

Read "Modern Primitive" reviewed by Dave Wayne


Steeped in various aspects of jazz tradition as much as it is on the cutting edge, the sonic territory covered by Modern Primitive is vast, to say the least. The music here, all freely improvised, has a warmth and immediacy that comes from intense, shared listening. Though there are no tunes or changes per se, that ...

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!
