Josh Nelson: The Discovery Project: Live In Japan

Read "The Discovery Project: Live In Japan" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki


In the golden age of television commercials, one commercial distinguished between a product that was popular because it was associated with good taste and one that was popular because it tasted good. The Discovery Project Live in Japan has nothing to do with canned food but it demonstrates pianist Josh Nelson's excellent taste in repertoire and ...

Throttle Elevator Music: Emergency Exit

Read "Emergency Exit" reviewed by Karl Ackermann


The sub-genre of “punk jazz" has existed—on paper— since the 1970s when Patti Smith proposed a collaboration with Ornette Coleman. That partnership did not materialize. When all the moving pieces are pulled together there is little substance to suggest that the category ever shared specific practices or conventions. Then, in 2012, Throttle Elevator Music emerged with ...

Josh Nelson Trio: The Discovery Project: Live In Japan

Read "The Discovery Project: Live In Japan" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


When pianist Josh Nelson's name surfaces in conversation, the art of the trio isn't typically a topic that comes up. A first-call accompanist and collaborator for the vocal elite, and a conceptualist who's crafted smartly arranged musical love letters to everything from steampunk sci-fi to the City of Los Angeles as part of his ongoing Discovery ...

Erik Jekabson Sextet III: One Note At A Time

Read "One Note At A Time" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


By the time One Note At A Time's first two songs have finished, it's been made abundantly clear that trumpeter Erik Jekabson appreciates a groove as much as he values space. The opener—"Days of Haze"—provides an introductory shot of adrenaline in the form of a tight, funk-framed blues, and “Dusk," in contrast, looks to open vistas, ...

Manu Katche: the scOpe

Read "the scOpe" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki


Manu Katché's tenth album as a leader, the ScOpe encompasses modern and ancient music, tribal and global music, and illustrates why he is not only one of the world's best drummers, but much more. Katché entered the Paris Conservatory as a pianist but switched to percussion as his studies progressed; his mature style eventually ...

Steve Khan: Patchwork

Read "Patchwork" reviewed by John Kelman


Amongst the many myths out there about music-making—especially in jazz, where the improvisation quotient is often so high—is that composing may, indeed, be work, but doesn't require the kind of relentless attention to detail that far more truthfully defines how many artists write and arrange their music. These days, one need only look to music by ...

Karina Corradini: From Ella to Elis

Read "Karina Corradini: From Ella to Elis" reviewed by R.J. DeLuke


It's remarkable how some musicians can overcome severe adversity, stay focused, persevere and come out on the other side of the tunnel. There are many such stories, and one is singer Karina Corradini from jny: Buenos Aires, who has been on the jny: Los Angeles jazz scene for some 15 years. Corradini has an ...

Gabrielle Stravelli: Pick Up My Pieces: Gabrielle Stravelli Sings Willie Nelson

Read "Pick Up My Pieces: Gabrielle Stravelli Sings Willie Nelson" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


To say that Willie Nelson has been directly influenced by jazz is to state the obvious. Listen to the ever-reliable Stardust (Columbia, 1978) or check out any number of his latter-day releases--American Classic (Blue Note, 2009), Summertime: Willie Nelson Sings Gershwin (Sony, 2016), My Way (Sony, 2018)--to experience that truth in repertoire; give his meeting with ...

Rob Dixon: Coast to Crossroads

Read "Coast to Crossroads" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki


"The album is called Coast to Crossroads because I'm based in Indiana, the Crossroads state, but I also work a lot on the West Coast and East Coast," explains saxophonist Rob Dixon, who leads this trio session with drummer Mike Clark and seven-string funk guitar maven Charlie Hunter (who also served as producer), plus occasional guest ...

Bob Dorough Trio featuring Michael Hornstein: But For Now

Read "But For Now" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


When But For Now first landed in 2015, it was a reminder of the good-natured brilliance behind the artistry of one of America's greatest living treasures. But with Bob Dorough's passing in April of 2018, the album's second coming plays more like a parting gift. Recorded in 2014, when Dorough was already a ...

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!
