Kate Williams: Four Plus Three

Read "Four Plus Three" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay


Pianist Kate Williams seems to be fond of septets: Four Plus Three is her third septet album after Made Up (kwjazz, 2011) and Atlas & Vulcana (kwjazz, 2014). Of course, there are other albums in her discography, including the excellent Smoke & Mirrors duo recording with saxophonist Bobby Wellins (kwjazz, 2012), but the seven-piece ensemble seems ...

Juliet Kelly: Spellbound Stories

Read "Spellbound Stories" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay


Eleven songs, all inspired by favorite novels, form Spellbound Stories, vocalist and songwriter Juliet Kelly's fourth album. It's a stylistically disparate collection, centered on Kelly's light and welcoming vocal. Exactly which novels gave Kelly her inspiration isn't made clear by the songs (except for one) or the CD notes, so the literary listener might ...

Kate Williams: Atlas & Vulcana

Read "Atlas & Vulcana" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay


Atlas and Vulcana formed a strongman and strongwoman act--Vulcana's real name was Kate Williams--whose feats of strength were renowned in Victorian and early twentieth century Britain. Pianist and composer Kate Williams (no relation, presumably) takes inspiration from the couple in titling this album and two of its tracks. Atlas & Vulcana has its own strengths--no brute ...

Read "Partisans: Never the Same Way Twice" reviewed by John Kelman


It's been five years since Partisans--the British jazz group (not to be confused with the also-British punk rock band The Partisans) cited as the godfathers of the new wave of British jazz, first emerging in 1997 with the out-of-print self-titled debut on the EFZ label--last released an album, specifically the superlative By Proxy (Babel, 2009), which ...

Zoe RahmanKindred SpiritsManushi Records2012 Holy soul food, Batman! It feels good to listen to a musician who plays from the heart rather than the brain. Not that British pianist Zoe Rahman is deficient in the grey stuff or technique. She studied music at Oxford University, the Royal ...

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!
