Keith Tippett - Giovanni Maier: Two for Joyce

Read "Two for Joyce" reviewed by Neri Pollastri


Registrato dal vivo al Teatro Miela di Trieste nel maggio del 2012, questo lavoro è, non a caso, dedicato a James Joyce. Non solo, infatti, questi visse a Trieste, che gli ha dedicato un monumento, ma anche la musica che Keith Tippett e Giovanni Maier vi esprimono ha qualcosa della poetica dello scrittore irlandese: aperta e ...

Memories in Motian

Read "Memories in Motian" reviewed by Zeno De Rossi


Soon after hearing about Paul Motian's passing (November 22, 2011) I felt the urge to delve (again) into his music. Later on, inspired by a moving writing by Ellery Eskelin (published on his website and reproduced below, by his kind permission), I thought it would have been interesting to collect brief memories from ...

ReDiviDeR: Never Odd or EveN

Read "Never Odd or EveN" reviewed by Ian Patterson


ReDiviDeR was born in 2007, when drummer Matthew Jacobson gathered some of Ireland's finest creative musicians to give voice to his compositions. Its debut, recorded live, has an undeniably visceral impact. Jacobson's compositions are like fine sketches around which the musicians add their own bold colors, seeking collective form and harmony. Improvisation of a post-modern and ...

Josh Roseman: Reimagining the Constellations

Read "Josh Roseman: Reimagining the Constellations" reviewed by R.J. DeLuke


Josh Roseman is a busy man. Extremely busy. He's also an extremely bright one, which is good because otherwise one might pause to consider whether, with all those activities, he is wearing himself too thin. Turns out he is spreading wide, but nothing about him or his many pursuits is thin. Especially not his creativity.

Julian Siegel Trio: Live at the Vortex

Read "Live at the Vortex" reviewed by Jack Kenny


The saxophone/bass/drums trio is a challenge both to the players and listeners, with no hiding place. Saxophonist Julian Siegel, drummer Joey Baron and bassist Greg Cohen prove that it can be creative, involving and exciting. Siegel has escaped the influence of John Coltrane, and it's possible to spend time working out his tenor influences before deciding ...

Mike Reed's People, Places & Things: Stories and Negotiations

Read "Stories and Negotiations" reviewed by Troy Collins


Stories and Negotiations is the final chapter in Chicago-based drummer Mike Reed's People, Places & Things trilogy. Debuting with 2008's Proliferation (482 Music), Reed founded this piano-less quartet to investigate an often overlooked period of Chicago's jazz history--the mid-1950s to early 1960s--when the city's after-hours jam session culture flirted with avant-garde collectivism, eventually giving birth to ...

Chris Jentsch: Cycles and Reflecting on the Journey

Read "Chris Jentsch: Cycles and Reflecting on the Journey" reviewed by Ludwig vanTrikt


John Coltrane once said, “Let the music speak for itself." The guitarist/composer and band leader Christopher Jentsch adds an interesting twist on that subject by opting to describe himself when asked about the broader subject of how to capture his music in his own words. “I think of myself as a composer/guitarist working with contemporary improvisational ...

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!
