Neil Cowley Trio: Spacebound Apes

Read "Spacebound Apes" reviewed by Phil Barnes


The impact of ambition and competitiveness in a creative pursuit can be double edged. As a spur to action, an attempt to fulfil potential it is surely a positive--think of the mutual admiration and competition between say Brian Wilson and Paul McCartney in the mid-1960s for example. But there are times when a competitive nature can ...

-Isq: Too

Read "-Isq: Too" reviewed by Phil Barnes


Vocal jazz gets a justifiably hard time these days--endless rehashes of “the Great American Songbook" or other Fifties showtunes, with high production values but little originality and even less to say. Enough to make any self-respecting reviewer power down their laptop you might think, but then out of the blue come gems like this from the ...

Neil Cowley Trio: Touch and Flee

Read "Touch and Flee" reviewed by Vic Albani


Benedetto dalla “sacra incisione" della Naim britannica (titolare di uno dei grandi saperi della filosofia high-end nel campo dell'alta fedeltà), ecco il nuovo lavoro di Neil Cowley con il suo fedele trio. Vale a dire un altro di quei grandi nomi della musica britannica moderna, in concreto misconosciuto al di fuori dell'isola per eccellenza. Da anni ...

Death, Rebirth & New Revolution

Read "Death, Rebirth & New Revolution" reviewed by Ian Patterson


The death knell has often been sounded for jazz and many would argue that the last revolution in jazz took place as the '60s handed the baton to the '70s, with the electronic-influenced jazz typified by trumpeter Miles Davis' ground breaking albums In a Silent Way (Columbia, 1969) and Bitches Brew (Columbia, 1970). Many believe that ...

Neil Cowley Trio: The Face of Mount Molehill

Read "The Face of Mount Molehill" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff


Non so se si possa parlare - o meglio se sia utile parlare - di un vero e proprio “filone" transnazionale (dalla Svezia degli E.S.T. agli Stati Uniti dei Bad Plus, fatti tutti i dovuti distinguo espressivi) di piano trio di matrice ritmica rock, ma sarà certamente utile a farsi capire inquadrare la musica del trio ...

Neil Cowley Trio: The Face of Mount Molehill

Read "Neil Cowley Trio: The Face of Mount Molehill" reviewed by Dave Sumner


Neil Cowley TrioThe Face of Mount MolehillNaim2012The danger of composing tunes with catchy hooks and enthusiastic infusions of a string ensemble for a jazz album is that it gets dismissed as gussied up pop music; not jazz, just jazzy. Either unaware or unconcerned with the risk, pianist Neil ...

Neil Cowley Trio: Radio Silence

Read "Radio Silence" reviewed by Glenn Astarita


With this British trio's third album--and perhaps its finest hour to date--a heartwarming assault on the customary jazz piano trio format surges onward. Here, pianist Neil Cowley merges rock, pop sentiment and mainstream jazz into a stylistic enterprise, aided by a highly rhythmic undercurrent. Cowley injects a sense of antiquity into the program, via his slightly ...

Neil Cowley Trio: Radio Silence

Read "Radio Silence" reviewed by Karl Ackermann


In recent years, a number of piano trios have done an admirable job filling the void left by the untimely passing of Esbjörn Svensson and, by consequence, his pioneering trio, e.s.t. The Tingvall Trio, more than most, along with Sebastian Liedke, Marcin Wasilewski and Colin Vallon, have all overseen efforts that encapsulate a similar style and ...

Bang My Can is the Pascal Schumacher Quartet's fifth album, and it finds the band expanding its range as it creates yet more fascinating music.

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!
