Three New Releases from Peter Kuhn

Read "Three New Releases from Peter Kuhn" reviewed by Dave Wayne


Clarinetist Peter Kuhn came up in the 1970s. In those days, one could count the number of modern jazz clarinet specialists on one hand: John Carter, Perry Robinson, Theo Jorgensmann, Alvin Batiste and—if you include the bass clarinet—Michel Pilz. So, one hand and a finger. Still associated with Benny Goodman, Dixieland and Swing, the clarinet was ...

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 ...

Rudi Mahall / Axel Dorner / Jan Roder / Uli Jennessen: Die Enttausschung

Read "Die Enttausschung" reviewed by Nic Jones


It's only right that the whole membership of this quartet gets equal billing, as this is a group that sublimates the individual in the interest of collective identity. Given the instrumental line-up--two horns, bass and drums--there are, of course, countless precedents for music in this form. The group proves itself to be abundantly aware of them, ...

Manfred Schoof: Resonance

Read "Resonance" reviewed by John Kelman


For every artist that has achieved international attention via the exposure of ECM Records, there are countless others who seem to have been lost beneath the cracks. German trumpeter Manfred Schoof, who recorded three superb albums for the ECM- affiliated JAPO label in the 1970s, was a member of the freewheeling Globe Unity Orchestra alongside Peter ...

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!
