Fire!: The Hands

Read "The Hands" reviewed by Sammy Stein

Rune Grammofon unleashed something special with the great music it has released over the past 20 years, and with The Hands it has surpassed itself. The Fire! trio, which consists of reedman Mats Gustafsson, bassist Johan Berthling and drummer Andreas Werlin, makes music which defies labels and classification.

Read "Il meglio del 2016 secondo Luca Canini" reviewed by Luca Canini

Un anno di ascolti. Di musica, di amori, scoperte e delusioni. Nel segno di Henry Threadgill e del suo Old Locks and Irregular Verbs, il punto più alto toccato in dodici mesi che hanno riservato più di una bella sorpresa. Sia in ambito strettamente “jazz," da Nels Cline a Wadada Leo Smith, da Cristiano Calcagnile a ...

Oren Ambarchi and Eli Keszler: Alps

Read "Alps" reviewed by John Eyles

A release on the Dancing Wayang label is always cause for celebration for several reasons. Firstly, they are few and far between, with Alps being only the label's ninth release since it began issuing records in 2007; rarely do two appear in a year, and never more than two--which makes 2014 a special year as Alps ...

Oren Ambarchi: Audience of One

Read "Audience of One" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Chitarrista e esploratore sonoro con un meritato seguito di appassionati, l'australiano Oren Ambarchi aggiunge un nuovo, importante, tassello alla propria discografia con Audience of One, lavoro concepito come una suite in quattro parti e costruito con una equilibrata architettura narrativa che va a toccare differenti elementi lessicali cari all'artista.

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.
