Borealis 2020

Read "Borealis 2020" reviewed by Martin Longley


Borealis Bergen, Norway March 6-8, 2020 Borealis means 'northern,' so we must be in Norway, for this festival of experimental music, which has been running in rainy Bergen since 2004. Even though, perhaps, the foundational musical forms of this long weekender lie in the moderne, compositional, new music zone, the ...

PunktFestival 2017

Read "PunktFestival 2017" reviewed by Luca Vitali


Punkt Festival Kristiansand, Norvegia Varie sedi 31.8-2.9.2017 Come sempre Punkt è un festival fuori dall'ordinario e all'insegna dell'imprevisto e dell'imprevedibile. Una sorta di Industria 4.0 della musica: fuori dal “circolo" dei tour estivi, tipico dei festival jazz, e poco interessato a fotografare il passato e il presente, è invece molto attento ...

Musicisti come Oscar Pettiford, Stan Getz, Ben Webster, Dexter Gordon, Duke Jordan, Kenny Drew ...

Achim Kaufmann, Frank Gratkowski, Wilbert de Joode: Oblengths

Read "Oblengths" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala


"L'improvvisazione collettiva è una disciplina che richiede buone orecchie, tempo di reazione immediato e abbondanti qualità musicali." Riportiamo volentieri le parole usate da Kevin Whitehead nel breve saggio che accompagna questo CD, per la loro eloquente intensità. Aggiungiamo che l'ascolto dell'improvvisazione collettiva si avvicina a tale disciplina: prevede buone orecchie, disposizione ad entrare senza timore in ...

2015: The Year in Jazz

Read "2015: The Year in Jazz" reviewed by Ken Franckling


The year 2015 was a curious blend of ups and downs, with glimmers of optimism offset by its losses. Venues opened to great fanfare, but others closed for a variety of reasons. UNESCO's International Jazz Day became firmly entrenched as the exclamation point on Jazz Appreciation Month activities in April. Daily arts journalism took a hit ...

John Butcher: So Far

Read "John Butcher: So Far" reviewed by Sammy Stein


Saxophonist John Butcher's career could have taken an academic path. He completed a Ph.D in theoretical physics--Charmed Quarks to be precise--but left the academic world behind shortly thereafter. As a saxophonist, Butcher has played with and collaborated with many musicians. He is not afraid to try completely off the wall musical experimentation.

Save The Date - Ottobre 2014

Read "Save The Date - Ottobre 2014" reviewed by Luca Canini


Addio estate. Arriva l'autunno ed è tempo di altri festival, altre rassegne, nuovi palchi. Ma prima dei consigli per ottobre, ci sono alcuni fili da riannodare, questioni lasciate in sospeso sulle quali tornare. Iniziamo da una buona notizia che rimbalza dalla Sardegna. Dopo l'inatteso rinvio e le ombre sul futuro alimentate dal silenzio, ...

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!
