Matthew Jacobson: Rituals Of Sound And Time

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.

Tim Berne's Snakeoil: The Fantastic Mrs. 10

Read "The Fantastic Mrs. 10" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

Alto saxophonist Tim Berne has never met anything or anyone he doesn't instantly want to re-invent, invert, dismantle and polish into his own image. And no, it's not any kind of savior thing, messianic impulse or Dr. Stranglove fixation. He simply hears and sees things more offbeat, peculiar, and colorful, thank you very much.

Read "The Fantastic Mrs. 10" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Tim Berne's Snakeoil: The Fantastic Mrs. 10

Read "The Fantastic Mrs. 10" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Imagine Tim Berne as the lead in the 1980's' American television series The A-Team, declaring: “I love it when a plan comes together!" He must return to that catchphrase every time his ensemble Snakeoil finishes a recording. After four outings on Manfred Eicher's ECM Records, the previous being Incidentals (2017), he moves his A-Team to Intakt ...

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.
