Read "Damo Suzuki & Electric Octopus at The Menagerie" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Damo Suzuki & Electric Octopus The Menagerie jny: Belfast, N. Ireland May 23, 2018 Appearances can be deceptive.

Octaveleven: This Hyperlink

Read "This Hyperlink" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Ozric Tentacles: Paper Monkeys

Read "Paper Monkeys" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

A band that has endured the dips and spikes of the progressive-rock genre since its inception back in 1983, UK-based Ozric Tentacles has the beat on jam-based space-rock via its signature style of execution. With undulating synths, driving pulses and layered sculpting techniques, the quartet almost always bestows a sweeping plane, centered on lucid imagery and ...

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.
