Dominique Pifarély Quartet: Tracé Provisoire

Read "Tracé Provisoire" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

French violinist Dominique Pifarély--last heard solo on Time Before And Time After (ECM, 2015)--leads a quartet into that uncharted territory between improvisation and composition. The quartet was founded in the spring of 2014, but the players had many associations before that.

Nice Jazz Festival 2014

Read "Nice Jazz Festival 2014" reviewed by Emilio Palanti

Nizza--Francia 8-12.07.2014 Quest'anno, guardando il cartellone del Festival Jazz di Nizza, a prima vista si lamentava l'assenza di vere e proprie superstar, com'era accaduto nelle edizioni precedenti, ma a rassegna finita possiamo dire che non son mancate le piacevoli sorprese. Sia ben chiaro, molti nomi di prima grandezza erano presenti, ma forse ...

Eberhard Weber: Positive Pragmatism

Read "Eberhard Weber: Positive Pragmatism" reviewed by John Kelman

Ray Anthony: The Early Years

Read "The Early Years" reviewed by Jack Bowers

The Early Years encompasses three sessions by trumpeter Ray Anthony’s dance–oriented orchestras. The plural is used because the first of these bands, which Anthony led for a time, was the U.S. Navy’s “Dolphins,” based first in Hawaii and later, at the end of World War II, on Okinawa. Tracks 1–10, by the Navy band, were recorded ...

Main Stream Power Band: A Date with Swing

Read "A Date with Swing" reviewed by Jack Bowers

With swing making a mini–comeback in the States and abroad, here’s a high–quality band from Germany that powers its way through no less than 24 well–crafted charts that should have most lovers of swing on their feet and dancing before you can say “Tommy Dorsey.” While many of the songs on the band’s second release, A ...

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.
