Ian Patterson's Best Releases Of 2020

Read "Ian Patterson's Best Releases Of 2020" reviewed by Ian Patterson

A year like no other produced a terrific amount of great music, much of inspired by--or in spite of—the surreal circumstances.

A huge thank you to all the musicians, record labels, studios, agents, promotors and virtual technicians who helped keep us relatively ...

Pauli Lyytinen Magnetia Orkesteri: Hypnosis

Read "Hypnosis" reviewed by Friedrich Kunzmann

It can be interpreted as quite the democratic statement when an album from a saxophonist is introduced with an almost two-minute long drum solo that solely focuses on the percussive qualities of the instrument. Which is exactly what drummer Mika Kallio does on the opening segment of the Finnish saxophonist Pauli Lyytinen's sophomore album with the ...

Verneri Pohjola: The Dead Don't Dream

Read "The Dead Don't Dream" reviewed by Ian Patterson

The photo on the front cover shows a levitating Verneri Pohjola. A rising star? That tag might have been appropriate at the time of Aurora (ACT Music, 2009), but the brilliant subsequent albums Bullhorn (2015) and Pekka (2017), both on Edition Records, confirmed the Finnish trumpeter's arrival at the top table of European jazz. Pohjola's distinctive ...

Gourmet At April Jazz Club

Read "Gourmet At April Jazz Club" reviewed by Anthony Shaw

Gourmet April Jazz Club Espoo, Finland February 8, 2019 You can't judge a book--or a CD--by its cover, but the contents frequently become inexorably associated with the packaging. Visiting the April Jazz Club in early February to see a band called “Gourmet" might suggest tasty fare in leafy spring surroundings. The ...

Altoadige Jazz Festival 2018

Read "Altoadige Jazz Festival 2018" reviewed by Libero Farnè

Varie Sedi Provincia di Bolzano 29.06--08.07.2018 Da alcuni anni il sottotitolo di questo festival potrebbe essere “Young European Jazz Festival," visto che il suo curatore Klaus Widmann evita accuratamente di invitare gruppi americani o nomi europei già troppo noti. Il suo obiettivo è invece quello di sondare le giovani tendenze ...

Jussi Fredriksson Trio: !

Read "!" reviewed by Anthony Shaw

Jussi Fredriksson is a pianist and musician well established on the Scandinavian music scene, and despite the associations his surname conjures, is a very Finnish jazz artist.

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!
