Andrea Massaria: The Spring of My Life e Zappa Speech Project

Read "Andrea Massaria: The Spring of My Life e Zappa Speech Project" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Nella sua inesausta ricerca di nuovi modi di sviluppare la musica improvvisata, ricerca che passa inevitabilmente anche dalla collaborazione con nuovi partner, il chitarrista triestino Andrea Massaria incontra qui due situazioni piuttosto diverse l'una dall'altra, entrambe tuttavia assai inusuali per progettualità e costruzione della musica. Andrea Massaria, Clementine Gasser The Spring of ...

Apartment House on Another Timbre

Read "Apartment House on Another Timbre" reviewed by John Eyles

In 1995 cellist Anton Lukoszevieve formed the group Apartment House. With between forty and fifty musicians listed as members —including such illustrious names as violinists Angharad Davies and Mira Benjamin, pianist Philip Thomas and clarinetist Heather Roach alongside Lukoszevieve himself--the group has a flexible line-up which changes according to the music being performed (as in the ...

A Musical Tryptich: Between Jazz, Folklore And Song

Read "A Musical Tryptich: Between Jazz, Folklore And Song" reviewed by Friedrich Kunzmann

The three albums below come from international European groups (among them one with a substantial Asian infusion) who recognize no boundaries in music nor borders between nations. Taking a variety of musical idioms and traditions and turning them into something new, each musician here is inspired by the lack of musical limitations that allows them to ...

Stephen Gauci Pandemic Duets

Read "Stephen Gauci Pandemic Duets" reviewed by John Sharpe

When everything shut down in March 2020 due to the Covid pandemic, New York City native tenor saxophonist Stephen Gauci initiated what he thought would be a set of five duet recordings in a refusal to be cowed by the lack of performance opportunities. In fact the collection has run to some 19 entries over that ...

Two versions of one piece from Magnus Granberg

Read "Two versions of one piece from Magnus Granberg" reviewed by John Eyles

Ever since Ist Gefallen In Der Schnee, written by Magnus Granberg and performed by his group Skogen, was released to great acclaim on Another Timbre in 2012, the label has issued a steady trickle of recordings by the Swedish composer. Only a couple of Granberg albums on INSUB have bucked the trend—one a composition commissioned for ...

Samuel Blaser: Purity of Purpose In All Things

Read "Samuel Blaser: Purity of Purpose In All Things" reviewed by Doug Collette

One of trombonist/composer Samuel Blaser's more subtle talents is his uncanny ability to as fully distinguish himself accompanying other musicians as when he is leading theme. The prominence of a sideman is, by definition, not so great as the bandleader, producer etc, but to completely engage in the project of another is an exercise in generosity ...

Benjamin Koppel: Room to Roam

Read "Benjamin Koppel: Room to Roam" reviewed by Doug Collette

In his two simultaneously-released double CDs, Danish saxophonist Benjamin Koppel illustrates how fine a line exists between authentic rhythm and blues and healthily-improvised jazz. It might otherwise go without saying it takes the caliber of world-class singers and players to traverse such broad and fertile territory-- bassist Scott Colley and trumpeter Randy Brecker are just two—but, ...

Ran Blake: Gray Moon, When Soft Rains Fall and Northern Noir

Read "Ran Blake: Gray Moon, When Soft Rains Fall and Northern Noir" reviewed by John Ephland

I'm a sucker for musical duets. Duets that make me feel like I'm in the same room with the two of them. Here we have three recent releases with the iconoclastic, legendary Ran Blake, now 83, in what is his most typical setting. Yes, to hear Blake paired up like this is to hear ...

Sonny Rollins and Bill Evans: Icons In Action

Read "Sonny Rollins and Bill Evans: Icons In Action" reviewed by Doug Collette

As icons of contemporary jazz, saxophonist Sonny Rollins and pianist Bill Evans deserve the carefully-researched and fastidiously-annotated packages Resonance Records has created in the form of Rollins In Holland and Live At Ronnie Scott's. The curators and producers for the label aim to formulate releases in line with each man's exacting approach, so while it is ...

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.
