Joel Newton Situation: Out Of and Into

Read "Out Of and Into" reviewed by Geno Thackara

If Joel Newton was stuck at home in isolation during the time of Covid, his imagination apparently never got the message. Exploration and travel still make a bright and refreshing theme on this largely solo affair. Thankfully the feel of adventure and open trails has not left him; Out Of and Into has his guitar work ...

Endless Field: Alive in the Wilderness

Read "Alive in the Wilderness" reviewed by Geno Thackara

It would have been simple enough just to evoke the feel and mood of various nature spots, but Endless Field--Ike Sturm and Jesse Lewis--would rather show us that there's nothing like being there. Alive in the Wilderness was recorded in precisely that way, in a series of places through the desert of southwestern Utah, with all ...

Read "Frank Zappa's Jazz Legacy Refuses to Die, Part 2" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

This week we continue the retrospective dedicated to Frank Zappa's complex relationship with jazz, through a mix of the jazzier compositions performed by Zappa himself and countless tributes to his music paid by jazz musicians.

Pat Martino: In the Moment

Read "Pat Martino: In the Moment" reviewed by Victor L. Schermer

Legendary guitarist Pat Martino is devoted to living in the Here and Now! -coincidentally the title of his autobiography (DaCapo, 2011). Taking each moment as it is and adding full measures of love and spirituality, Martino is now well into his sixth decade as one of the most revered and sought after jazz musicians on the ...

Bjorn Meyer: Provenance

Read "Provenance" reviewed by Geno Thackara

From the fact that his best-known role consisted of a decade in Nik Bartsch's Ronin (not to ignore his other style-bending collaborations either), it's already clear that Bjorn Meyer isn't interested in what a bass or bassist is normally supposed to do. In keeping with that attitude, his solo debut puts his low-end string work to ...

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!
