Club d'Elf: Live at Club Helsinki

Read "Live at Club Helsinki" reviewed by Maurizio Comandini

Il gruppo mutabile di elfi che si raccoglie abitualmente attorno al bassista Mike Rivard ha colpito di nuovo. Questa volta però il gruppo Club D'Elf non è stato registrato nell'abituale Lizard Lounge di Cambridge, nella immediata periferia di Boston, che ospita praticamente ogni settimana (o giù di lì) i loro lunghi concerti. Per questa importante occasione ...

Club d'Elf: Live at Club Helsinki

Read "Live at Club Helsinki" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

The Boston-based collective Club d'Elf seems to attract genre labels like nobody's business. Moroccan-dosed dub-jazz, trance, psychedelia, free jazz, electronica, hip hop, avant-garde, jam band, rock...what other styles have you got? At one point or another any of these labels could apply, but the distinctions are blurred in the joyous sonic stew. The band has hosted ...

Mike Rivard: Entranced By The Music

Club d'Elf: Fire in the Brain Live at Berklee

Read "Fire in the Brain Live at Berklee" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

"To thine own self be true" is a reliable expression, and few band biographies are more true to their subject than the official label writeup on the marvelously twisted Club d'Elf: “Circling about bassist/composer Mike Rivard (Morphine, Either-Orchestra, Guster, Boston Pops), D'Elf is a constellation of top musicians from the jazz, DJ, rock and world music ...

Raising Vision and Voice

Read "Raising Vision and Voice" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

Decades ago, Archie Shepp and Sun Ra were among the first musicians to expand their vision for the human voice beyond the traditional verse-chorus-verse song structure. Today, through digital sampling and other technology, musicians incorporate and manipulate the human voice in ways that even these two iconoclasts might not recognize.

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.
