Alan Braufman, Anteloper & Owl Xounds Exploding Galazy

Read "Alan Braufman, Anteloper & Owl Xounds Exploding Galazy" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

It's baseball season—sort of—so I guess you could say this episode of OMJ touches a lot of bases. The NY underground scene gets explored a bit via 70's Loft pioneer Alan Braufman who has a new release, while more recent practitioners of the outside get sampled—Owl Xounds Exploding Galaxy and Scurvy. Today's Jaimie Branch is here ...

Whit Dickey, Asher Gamedze, Quin Kirchner, Icepick and More

Read "Whit Dickey, Asher Gamedze, Quin Kirchner, Icepick and More" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

Three albums by drummers highlight this episode. South Africa's Asher Gamedze's Dialectic Soul brings to light the freer, more avant side of contemporary South African jazz (perhaps in a way that the revered Louis Moholo Moholo did over fifty years ago), while drummer Quin Kirchner's latest delves into various rhythms and tributes to favorite musicians. Tying ...

Maciej Obara Quartet: Three Crowns

Read "Three Crowns" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

For its sophomore ECM release this Polish/Norwegian quartet titled the album after the Trzy Korony summit of the Pieniny mountain range in the south of Poland. While it may be premature to describe the album as a peak or summit, it is a substantial artistic statement. There have been prior jazz interpretations of works by Polish ...

Anders Lønne Grønseth: Multiverse

Read "Multiverse" reviewed by Chris May

Ever since Jan Garbarek put Norwegian jazz on the map, and especially so after the international success of his rigorously ascetic Officium (ECM) in 1994, the music has acquired a reputation for being not entirely passionless, but emotionally withdrawn. The “Scandinavian sound" which Garbarek championed was conceived in collaboration with ECM label founder Manfred Eicher as ...

Read "Copenhagen Jazz Festival 2018: The Community Series at Koncertkirken" reviewed by Henning Bolte

Koncertkirken Copenhagen Jazz Festival Copenhagen July 13-14, 2018 It was a flying visit of two days at this year's Copenhagen Jazz Festival with its 1500 concerts during 10 days. But with so many concerts spread over the city even two days demands serious decision-making and crisscrossing town. I was primarily ...

Håvard Wiik Trio: This Is Not a Waltz

Read "This Is Not a Waltz" reviewed by Enrico Bettinello

Tra i tanti talenti pianistici che vengono dal nord dell'Europa, quello di Håvard Wiik è tra i più luminosi e imprevedibili. Ben conosciuto con gli Atomic, come pure nel raffinatissimo progetto Free Fall di Ken Vandermark, Wiik è leader di grande intelligenza, come dimostra in questo nuovo lavoro in trio con i collaudati (già costituiscono la ...

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.
