Destination South Africa (Part 1)

Read "Destination South Africa (Part 1)" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

Over the past three weeks we've focused on Africa's influence on jazz music. We played music by international jazz musicians who were inspired by Africa as well as music by jazz musicians from Mali to Tunisia and from Ethiopia to Zimbabwe. Now what about South African Jazz? Well, we left South Africa for last ...

Mike Osborne: Force Of Nature - Part 1-2

Read "Mike Osborne: Force Of Nature - Part 1-2" reviewed by Barry Witherden

Part 1 | Part 2 Some three-and-a-half minutes into Release, the Deram recording of Mike Westbrook's seminal suite mixing Swing classics with Westbrook originals, after a scorching solo by John Surman on “The Few," an alto saxophone cadenza emerged from a free ensemble passage: the tone was penetrating, incisive, severe, the phrasing intense, passionate ...

Lwanda Gogwana: Tradition and Innovation

Read "Lwanda Gogwana: Tradition and Innovation" reviewed by Seton Hawkins

When South African trumpet virtuoso Lwanda Gogwana released his second album Uhadi Synth (Lwanda Gogwana Music Group, 2016) last year, he reinforced his position not only as one of South Africa's truly exceptional horn talents, but also as one of its most probing and insightful artists and composers. The title of the album itself--the ...

Mats Gustafsson

Read "Mats Gustafsson" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

1. Hank Mobley, Hank Mobley (Blue Note, 1957). Il disco jazz definitivo?! È tutto perfettamente bilanciato in questa supersession. Il sax tenore è poetico e la tromba di Art Farmer non è mai stata così lirica ed emozionante. Art Blakey è un genio dello swing e la foto di copertina è una delle mie ...

Jazz From Around the World: Asia

Read "Jazz From Around the World: Asia" reviewed by Hrayr Attarian

Asia is the most culturally and ethnically diverse continent. It is, therefore, hard to distill all its jazz influenced musical legacies into 10 albums. Some countries have robust jazz scenes that, nevertheless, are fundamentally derivative of European and American styles. In other musical cultures jazz has just recently made inroads. Below are 10 historic records that ...

Intervista a Roberto Bellatalla

Read "Intervista a Roberto Bellatalla" reviewed by Daniele Vogrig

Se i concetti di fraternità e universalità da sempre caratterizzano il jazz in tutte le sue forme, senza dubbio e a buon diritto Roberto Bellatalla ne può essere considerato uno dei massimi ambasciatori. Amsterdam, Londra, Johannesburg. Quaranta anni di storia (e di storie), poi il ritorno a casa. Ammesso e non concesso che ...

Jazz From Around the World: Africa

Read "Jazz From Around the World: Africa" reviewed by Hrayr Attarian

There is no doubt that African heritage, particularly that of west Africa is at the root of jazz. This is simply factual and is not meant to belittle the contributions of other cultures to its growth and development. In addition, as a genre, it has proven to have a wide universal appeal. For both reasons jazz ...

Canto Generàl: Rebel Flames

Read "Rebel Flames" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Uno dei migliori CD usciti nel 2015, anzi forse il migliore tra gli italiani, è questo live di Canto Generàl, ospite alla batteria Louis Moholo-Moholo, con un repertorio anche per questo interamente dedicato al periodo d'oro di quel jazz sudafricano di cui proprio Moholo è l'unico sopravvissuto. Il lavoro -registrato in realtà nel 2007, ...

Daniele Cavallanti and the Milano Contemporary Art Ensemble: Sounds of Hope

Read "Sounds of Hope" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

L'avvio all'unisono dell'ampio ensemble del primo brano, attraversato da un brulicare di variazioni, mostra subito il marchio di fabbrica del proprio autore; e già al termine della traccia è chiaro che Daniele Cavallanti, qui all'ennesima e sempre opportuna ristrutturazione dei suoi gruppi, ha di nuovo colto nel segno: Sounds of Hope, messo in scena da una ...

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.
