MUSICIAN Born:

Paal Nilssen-Love

Paal was born in Molde, Norway, December 24. 1974, and raised at a jazz club in Stavanger, run by his parents. It was natural to choose his fathers drums as his instrument and jazz as his work. From 1990 on he took actively part in the jazz milieu in Stavanger and joined bands with established musicians such as trumpeter Didrik Ingvaldsen and saxophonist Frode Gjerstad. In many ways, these collaborations were essential as they pointed out the directions for Paal's later musical development and career. During his studies at the Jazz dept at the University in Trondheim, where the first self initiated bands were established, things developed really fast--and Paal was nationally acknowledged at the age of 20. The forming of the quartet Element in 1993 in many ways represented the start of a new phase in Paal's musical life

The Thing with Joe McPhee: She Knows...

Read "She Knows..." reviewed by Mark Corroto

After nearly three dozen releases over seventeen years, it was announced in 2019 that the trio The Thing would be on a hiatus from touring and recording. This garage punk jazz trio has carried the flame of Black Flag's get-in-the-van philosophy, traveling and recording with the likes of Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore, Otomo Yoshihide, Neneh Cherry, ...

Chris Pitsiokos / Javier Areal Velez / Kevin Murray: First Blush

Read "First Blush" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Was this gig at New York's Downtown Music Gallery in January, 2020, a one-off performance? Saxophonist Chris Pitsiokos was scheduled to perform solo, probably to promote his extraordinary solo release Speak In Tongues (Relative Pitch, 2019), but chose instead to expand to a trio. And a new trio at that. This wasn't one of his recent ...

Ballister: Znachki Stilyag

Read "Znachki Stilyag" reviewed by John Sharpe

Although the title, composed of two unrelated Russian words chosen because they sounded good, doesn't have a meaning, the contents not only sound good but carry rather more weight. The high intensity free jazz trio Ballister comprises reedman Dave Rempis, cellist Fred Lonberg-Holm and drummer Paal Nilssen-Love, three of the finest proponents on their instruments in ...

Peter Brötzmann & Fred Lonberg-Holm: Memories of a Tunicate

Read "Memories of a Tunicate" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Peter Brötzmann in a duo format brings out the best of Peter Brötzmann. Yes, but maybe of greater import, the duo also ennobles his improvising partner. Not that cellist Fred Lonberg-Holm needs the accolades. He has been front-and-center of the creative music scene for more than three decades, collaborating with the likes of Joe McPhee, Ken ...

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.
