Othello Molineaux

Othello Molineaux, was born in Trinidad and Tobago, and as his resume states, is “as old as a tree”! He was educated at Fatima College and Queen’s Royal College in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago. Othello’s musical career was initiated at an early age with piano lessons from his mother. Growing up in a musical family, his father a violinist, brother a jazz pianist, and sister a vocalist, his love for jazz and his love and respect for the Steel Drum or “Steel Pan” as it is called in its native Trinidad and Tobago, led to the formation in his mid teens of his own group, of which he was both tuner and arranger

Jimmy Haslip: Amperes Beyond the BASSics, Part 2

Read "Jimmy Haslip: Amperes Beyond the BASSics, Part 2" reviewed by Jim Worsley

In case you missed it, Part One of my conversation with Jimmy Haslip covered a lot of ground and had a few good laughs along the way. Although we talked about the Yellowjackets, we delved more deeply into why and how he parted ways with the band some eight years ago. Haslip has been producing records ...

Monty Alexander at the Avalon Theater

Read "Monty Alexander at the Avalon Theater" reviewed by Geno Thackara

Monty Alexander and Friends The Avalon Theater Easton, MD August 31, 2019 “Ten years," Monty Alexander wryly observed at the center-stage microphone with a disbelieving shake of the head. “Ten years of this festival, and 75 years as me." It was a celebration of multiple anniversaries at the weekend-long Labor Day ...

John Kelman's Best Releases of 2017

Read "John Kelman's Best Releases of 2017" reviewed by John Kelman

For those who may have noticed, there have been no best of lists coming from yours truly since 2014; sadly, the chronic health problem that has reduced my previous writing pace to a crawl continues without much respite. My best of the year lists have always been predicated upon having reviewed the releases chosen, and with ...

Truth, Liberty & Soul: Live in NYC The Complete 1982 Jazz Alive! Recording

Read "Truth, Liberty & Soul: Live in NYC The Complete 1982 Jazz Alive! Recording" reviewed by Mario Calvitti

Il 1982 doveva essere un anno speciale per Jaco Pastorius. Dopo essere stato riconosciuto come il più grande bassista del mondo (così come amava presentarsi a tutti quando era ancora un perfetto sconosciuto) nel corso dei suoi cinque anni di militanza appena conclusa con i Weather Report, era tempo di dimostrare che era molto più che ...

Jaco Pastorius: Truth, Liberty & Soul Live in New York: The Complete NPR Jazz Alive! Recording

Read "Truth, Liberty & Soul Live in New York: The Complete NPR Jazz Alive! Recording" reviewed by John Kelman

These days, there's a plethora of recordings, originally made for radio or television broadcast, being released by labels ranging from thoroughly legit to highly suspect. In some instances, these are real archival finds; true gold, mined from hours of hours of recordings, lovingly restored and packaged. In other cases they're clearly nothing but money grabs. Capitalizing ...

Jaco Pastorius: Truth, Liberty & Soul: Live in NYC The Complete 1982 Jazz Alive! Recording

Read "Truth, Liberty & Soul: Live in NYC The Complete 1982 Jazz Alive! Recording" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Bassist Jaco Pastorius could be considered the American music Van Gogh, a romantic figure so much bigger than the broken body that died from a severe beaten received outside of Midnight Bottle Club in Wilton Manors, Florida, September 11, 1987. That image simply does not jibe even remotely with the music presented on Truth, Liberty & ...

Leon Foster Thomas: Metamorphosis

Read "Metamorphosis" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Throughout the history of jazz, what once seemed to be oddball instruments have inexorably become part of accepted sonic landscape, while others have fallen into disuse. It's hard to believe that the vibraphone, flute, and violin were once seen as un-swinging, non-jazz instruments, while the banjo and tuba were considered essential linchpins of the jazz sound. ...

Jaco Pastorius: Modern American Music…Period! The Criteria Sessions

Read "Jaco Pastorius: Modern American Music…Period! The Criteria Sessions" reviewed by John Kelman

1976 was, for electric bassists, the year where everything changed. Jaco Pastorius hadn't quite emerged from nowhere, and the few prior recordings on which he could be found may have provided some hint of what was to come, but it was the quadruple punch of fellow legend-in-the-making Pat Metheny's leader debut Bright Size Life (ECM, 1976), ...

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.
