Dave Liebman: Earth

Read "Earth" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki


When saxophonist, composer, and bandleader Dave Liebman groks a musical vision, he dreams big and deep. “In the late 1990s," Liebman recalls, “I embarked on a project to musically depict manifestations of the four natural elements. In 1997 I recorded Water with Pat Metheny, Billy Hart and Cecil McBee; in 2006, I did Air with the ...

Ute Lemper Channels Dietrich On 'Rendezvous With Marlene'

Ute Lemper Channels Dietrich On 'Rendezvous With Marlene'

It takes a kind of fearlessness to address the mythical talent of superstar Marlene Dietrich. Dietrich’s stardom is legendary; her story a picaresque of adventure, fantasy, imagination, and coveted reality. Yet, if anyone can begin to touch Dietrich’s transcendent nature, to tell her story, it would have to be jny: Berlin-born, New York-based Ute Lemper.  Lemper, ...

Dave Bass: No Boundaries

Read "No Boundaries" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki


In 2015, Dave Bass retired from the Office of the Attorney General of California after twenty years of service and returned to his first professional love—playing the piano, a career that a wrist injury forced him to abandon about thirty years ago.

In the grand, giving spirit of the master, pianist Benito Gonzalez, drummer Gerry Gibbs and bassist Essiet Okon Essiet hold absolutely nothing back and pull no punches on their exhilarating tribute to McCoy Tyner, Passion Reverence Transcendence.

Tim Ray Trio: Windows

Read "Windows" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


Il pianista Tim Ray è noto soprattutto per le collaborazioni con protagonisti della musica pop (Lyle Lovett, Aretha Franklin, Bonnie Raitt) piuttosto che con jazzmen (Gary Burton, Esperanza Spalding, Phil Woods, Dave Douglas, Brian Blade, Lewis Nash) o con organici classici come la Boston Classical Orchestra.

Tim Ray Trio: Windows

Read "Windows" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan


The Tim Ray Trio supplied the spirited accompaniment on Kindred Spirits (Whaling City Sound, 2016), behind saxophonists Greg Abate and the legendary Phil Woods. But they got the chance to step out--sax men taking a break--with a peppery take on Kurt Weill's classic “Speak Low," which serves as a preview of sorts for the Tim Ray ...

Steven Kirby: Illuminations

Read "Illuminations" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


Illuminations--guitarist Steven Kirby's third album, following Point Of Balance (Challenge Records, 1998) and North Lights (Challenge Records, 2003)--is both true to previous form and highly expansive. Kirby uses elements of the sonic palette(s) that helped to color his earlier work, referencing the probing lyricism of John Abercrombie and the straight-to-the-heart melodic qualities shot through in classic ...

Gerry Gibbs Thrasher Dream Trio: Live In Studio

Read "Live In Studio" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


È possibile che il nome di questa formazione e il suo stesso leader non vi dicano molto ma guardate chi sono gli altri protagonisti e gli ospiti coinvolti.

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!
