Paul Dunmall, Percy Pursglove, Olie Brice, Jeff Williams: Palindromes

Read "Palindromes" reviewed by John Sharpe


Bassist Olie Brice had an inkling that it might be worthwhile introducing two of his collaborators who had never played together before, British reed titan Paul Dunmall and American drummer Jeff Williams. It proves devastatingly correct on Palindromes. They unite, together with trumpeter Percy Pursglove, on a collective live album--recorded at London's Cafe Oto, in February ...

Somersaults: Numerology Of Birdsong

Read "Numerology Of Birdsong" reviewed by John Sharpe


Without fanfare, the rhythm section of bassist Olie Brice and drummer Mark Sanders has become one of the UK's premier engine-rooms for free improvisation. That's borne out by association with not only the great reedman Tobias Delius, perhaps best known for his tenure in the ICP Orchestra, but also players as diverse as Polish reedman Mikolaj ...

Paul Dunmall's Sunship Quartet: John Coltrane 50th Memorial Concert At Cafe Oto

Read "John Coltrane 50th Memorial Concert At Cafe Oto" reviewed by John Sharpe


If John Coltrane had lived he would have been 90 in July 2019. It's fair to say that there has been no saxophonist anywhere near as influential since his passing in 1967. To mark the 50th anniversary of his death, percussionist Mark Wastell organized a concert headlined by two affirmed devotees of the great reedman, namely ...

Nick Malcolm: Real Isn't Real

Read "Real Isn't Real" reviewed by Phil Barnes


There's always a temptation to describe things we like as “the real jazz/soul/music..." out of a passion for a new musical discovery, but what does it actually mean? At the level of pure pedantry no piece of music can be more “real" than any other, yet what this unfortunate formulation is meant to signify is that ...

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!
