Frank Tiberi, Joe Lovano and George Garzone: Tiberian Mode

Read "Tiberian Mode" reviewed by Jim Worsley


While the three tenor saxophone soloists with piano, bass, and drums was already a proven sextet formula, the Tiberian Mode is one of vast reproportioning and accelerated creativity. Led by big band divinity Frank Tiberi and two of his disciples, George Garzone, and Joe Lovano, the project unleashes power, vigor, and contrasting jazz sensibilities.

Dave Riekenberg: Never Too Late

Read "Never Too Late" reviewed by Jack Bowers


Another well-upholstered album of contemporary straight-ahead Jazz that gives absolutely no cause for complaint but fewer reasons than one might expect to become excited. Its title, Never Too Late, is an appropriate metaphor for tenor Dave Riekenberg's long-overdue debut as leader of his own quartet after years on the road with Woody Herman's orchestra and Blood, ...

The Woody Herman Orchestra, Directed By Frank Tiberi: Live In London at Ronnie Scott's

Read "Live In London at Ronnie Scott's" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey


Woody N' You! When I think of Woody Herman, I think of a legend in the shadows, a very prominent musician and band leader who, while he was recognized during his lifetime and after, did not receive the same attention, say, a Duke Ellington or a Benny Goodman did. Live In London at Ronnie Scott's is ...

The Woody Herman Orchestra: Live in London at Ronnie Scott's

Read "Live in London at Ronnie Scott's" reviewed by Jack Bowers


Any list of the year’s ten (or even five) most admirable big–band albums that doesn’t include Live in London should be greeted with a healthy dose of skepticism. Sure, much of the Woody Herman Orchestra’s concert appearance last August at London’s premier Jazz club, Ronnie Scott’s, is comprised of well–worn Herman favorites (“Apple Honey,” “Early Autumn,” ...

Frank Tiberi: Tiberian Mode

Read "Tiberian Mode" reviewed by Jack Bowers


Better late than never. Although Frank Tiberi’s stature among his fellow musicians approaches legendary, it took a Woody Herman alumnus (John Nugent) with his own record company to appreciate the benefits of bringing the present leader of the Herman Herd into a studio to document his prodigious talents. And while doing so, to invite two of ...

The Woody Herman Orchestra: A Tribute to the Legacy of Woody Herman

Read "A Tribute to the Legacy of Woody Herman" reviewed by Jack Bowers


Legacy is the first recording by the Woody Herman Orchestra since Woody's passing in October 1987. As the latest Herd reprises briefly Herman's well-known theme, “Blue Flame," and dives impulsively into Jimmy Giuffre's classic, “Four Brothers," what becomes immediately apparent is that the band hasn't surrendered much ground under music director Frank Tiberi, even with guys ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
