Anna Hogberg Attack: lena

Read "lena" reviewed by John Sharpe

It is a well known gambit to start an album with one of its strongest tracks. But it must have been a difficult choice for Swedish band leader and saxophonist Anna Högberg when programming her group Attack's second release. That she chose “Pappa Kom Hem," which opens with a sustained stentorian bellow from tenor saxophonist Elin ...

Anna Högberg Attack: lena

Read "lena" reviewed by Samuel Stroup

There are moments of lena, the sophomore release from Swedish group Attack, which feel as though the ensemble is as much punk band as it is jazz sextet. Under the leadership of alto saxophonist Anna Högberg, the group plays loud and fast free jazz which is as stylish as it is raucous. Even the monochrome album ...

Alberto Pinton: Opus Facere

Read "Opus Facere" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Attivo in Svezia dal 1985, il sassofonista veneziano Alberto Pinton occupa una posizione di rilievo nel jazz scandinavo d'avanguardia, per il suo ruolo di leader (con questa e altre formazioni) che per le collaborazioni con vari organici. Quest'incisione segue il live giapponese pubblicato lo scorso anno (Live in Japan Wildcat House) dov'era protagonista lo ...

The Way Ahead: Bells, Ghosts and other Saints

Read "Bells, Ghosts and other Saints" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Perry Farrell, of the rock band Jane's Addiction, might have said/sung it best in 1988, on the track “Ted, Just Admit it..." when he whispered “Nothing's Shocking." Indeed, nothing is in the 21st century. Marcel Duchamp's painting “Nude Descending a Staircase, No. 2" (1912) is mostly admired today, and certainly not the trigger for a riot. ...

Alberto Pinton Quartet: Live in Japan

Read "Live in Japan" reviewed by Mark Corroto

You never really recognize a musician or ensemble until you hear them live. In the studio, artists have the luxury of multiple takes and edits to fine-tune their sound. Live in concert, the trade-off for the lack of second takes, is the musicians' ability to feed off of the energies of the audience. Their true identities ...

Anders Ahlen Unit: Lines and Dots

Read "Lines and Dots" reviewed by Dave Wayne

I hope it's not too silly to say that Lines and Dots, the new album by guitarist and composer Anders Ahlén, is really cool. But it is; both in the colloquial sense and in the jazz sense. The music goes down with nary a wasted note, the cover art is hip and minimal, and it comes-self-produced ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
