Jerry Granelli, Lisa Ullén, Rudresh Mahanthappa & Yells At Eels

Read "Jerry Granelli, Lisa Ullén, Rudresh Mahanthappa & Yells At Eels" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

Drummer extraordinaire Jerry Granelli says he doesn't look back too much, he'd prefer to move forward with his music, but with Jamie Saft and Brad Jones in tow, he decided the time was right to rediscover some of the tunes he played backing Vince Guaraldi and Mose Allison years back. A sample of his new album ...

Vijay Iyer & Mike Ladd: InWhatStrumentals

Read "InWhatStrumentals" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

In 2003 Vijay Iyer and Mike Ladd released In What Language?, a hybrid jazz/hip hop response to post-9/11 American paranoia. Inspired by many related injustices, the inflection point was the extended detention, handcuffing and humiliation of a prominent Iranian filmmaker passing through JFK International Airport. Seventeen years later America was mired in multiple unprecedented crises, giving ...

Eclectic and Electric

Read "Eclectic and Electric" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

This episode of One Man's Jazz is kind of eclectic, what with music from the likes of Petter Eldh's European super group Koma Saxo taking jazz in a different direction, Reverse Winchester (rapper/poet Mike Ladd hooked up with the open tuning of guitarist Mathieu Sourisseau), a historical bit on the strange tale of Canadian drummer Claude ...

Kassa Overall: Living in the Cut between Jazz and Hip Hop

Read "Kassa Overall: Living in the Cut between Jazz and Hip Hop" reviewed by Leo Sidran

Drummer, rapper and producer Kassa Overall speaks about the intersection of jazz and hip-hop, the importance of getting “comfortable with being bored so you can get better at your instrument," the relationship between great drumming and the sounds of nature, how growing up far away from the “scene" gave him a strong sense of personal identity, ...

Steve Lehman: Sélébéyone

Read "Sélébéyone" reviewed by Luca Canini

Due sarebbero i modi più appropriati e coscienziosi di iniziare questa recensione. Il primo: una rapida carrellata sui precedenti tentativi di contaminazione tra jazz e hip hop (entrambi i generi intesi nel senso più ampio e inclusivo possibile). Da Steve Coleman e Greg Osby alle lucide visioni di Mike Ladd e Vijay Iyer, dal Miles Davis ...

Vijay Iyer: Mutations

Read "Mutations" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Alla fine anche Vijay Iyer si accomoda alla corte di re Manfred Eicher. E lo fa alla sua maniera, spiazzando chi lo attendeva al varco con una nuova rivisitazione del piano trio, o con l'ennesima escursione nel mondo del poetry insieme all'amico Mike Ladd, o con il recupero della via indiana al jazz insieme al collaboratore ...

Vijay Iyer / Mike ladd: Holding It Down: The Veterans’ Dreams Project

Read "Holding It Down: The Veterans’ Dreams Project" reviewed by Enrico Bettinello

Devo confessare che--pur nel rispetto delle opinione di tutti e ben consapevole che il percorso artistico di Vijay Iyer possa anche non piacere--ho trovato estremamente ingenerosi, talvolta ai limiti della stupidità, molti commenti negativi e invidiosi che si sono susseguiti nei social networks all'indomani della vittoria del pianista della prestigiosa [e soprattutto pecuniariamente corposa] MacArthur Grant. ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
