Tim Berne's Snakeoil: The Deceptive 4 - Live

Read "The Deceptive 4 - Live" reviewed by John Sharpe


With the sixth entry in their discography, alto saxophonist Tim Berne offers a progress report of sorts on his band Snakeoil. The Deceptive 4 Live collects together two cracking sets, one from a brace of appearances in NYC in 2009/2010 before Berne had even settled on the group name, and the other a latter-day outing from ...

Tim Berne: The Deceptive 4—Live

Read "The Deceptive 4—Live" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Then, in 2012, on his first recording for ECM Records, he introduced his group (and the album) Snakeoil. The band has become, since then, his main--though certainly not his only--means of artistic ...

Read "Matthew Jacobson: Rituals Of Sound And Time" reviewed by Ian Patterson


For someone whose livelihood and lifeblood are all about rhythms, the COVID-19 lockdown, with its very different rhythms, must be extremely frustrating. Especially when, as is the case with Matthew Jacobson, renowned drummer, composer, promotor and record label manager, there is no drum kit in his Dublin apartment. “I've been doing more work on ...

Daniel Rorke: Naked Allies

Read "Naked Allies" reviewed by Ian Patterson


Naked Allies is a two-horn, no-chord quartet, formed in 2018, that bridges the Atlantic. Dublin-based Australian Daniel Rorke and Dubliner Matthew Jacobson made the trek across the big pond in June that year to hook up with Oscar Noriega and electric bassist Simon Jermyn.

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
