Erik Hove Chamber Ensemble: Polygon

Read "Polygon" reviewed by Pascal-Denis Lussier

Vancouver-born, Montreal-based alto saxophonist/composer Erik Hove is a compelling emergent leader, already a busy sideman on the city's scene, involved in all sorts of projects and playing with many local heavyweights since proving himself with the award-winning urban jazz Soundclash project he formed while in New York, studying with Greg Osby, and revived in Montreal, eventually ...

Fraser Hollins: Aerial

Read "Aerial" reviewed by Pascal-Denis Lussier

One word: Grand. A fitting description of bassist Fraser Hollins' 2010 album, Aerial, his first as composer and leader, because, vaguely, in many ways, this is a grand album. Before accusing anyone of hyperbole, please read on. Montreal-based, Ottawa-raised bassist Fraser Hollins' reputation as a well-schooled, gifted accompanist and fine, inventive soloist is set ...

3rio is a connected-jazz project uniting jny: Montreal-based saxophonist Alexandre Coté, guitarist Gary Schwartz, and drummer Jim Doxas (brother of saxophonist Chet Doxas), three feverishly-engaged musicians with extensive training and local to international playing experience, and whose love and deep dedication to jazz, from its roots and connections, have been firmly established, though this aspect could ...

[iks]: The Iksperience, Alive and Well

Read "[iks]: The Iksperience, Alive and Well" reviewed by Pascal-Denis Lussier

Those of you who've had the opportunity to hear the Montreal-based contemporary jazz band [iks] have, I'm certain, immediately felt one of two things: nonplussed or absolute love; it's one of those bands. Those who've felt the former and awarded this band the necessary attention along with those who've instantly felt the latter are ...

The $100 Guitar Project: Act 1

Read "The $100 Guitar Project: Act 1" reviewed by Pascal-Denis Lussier

An online listing for a “no name," threadbare guitar; musicians with a distinct sense of humor; an idea, and one credit card... And a few emails later we've got something that combines the honest-but-struggling underdog, the ugly duckling, Pygmalion, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, Kaspar Hauser, a Cinderella rags to riches, Herbie the Love ...

Karl Jannuska: Streaming

Read "Karl Jannuska: Streaming" reviewed by Pascal-Denis Lussier

Karl Jannuska Streaming Paris Jazz Underground Records 2010 Studies demonstrate that everyone pays more attention to a female voice--the more alluring, the better the attention--and this, regardless of gender. Singer Sienna Dahlen has an extremely alluring voice, one that could sell rainwater in a snowstorm. This may ...

Pat Metheny: Orchestrion Tour, Montreal

Read "Pat Metheny: Orchestrion Tour, Montreal" reviewed by Pascal-Denis Lussier

Pat MethenyOrchestrion TourPlace des ArtsMontreal, CanadaOctober 12, 2010 Curiosity. More than anything else it was this that made guitarist/composer Pat Metheny's Orchestrion Tour concert at Montreal's Place des Arts complex (another stop on his successful 120-plus major-cities world tour) something to truly anticipate. I can't claim ...

Steve Amirault: One Existence, Two Voices

Read "Steve Amirault: One Existence, Two Voices" reviewed by Pascal-Denis Lussier

Initially, I was disappointed to find out that pianist Steve Amirault was taking this new direction. Jazz singers have never really been my thing. Anyone that knows me knows I have a penchant for the lyric-less stuff--music that breaks all bounds, and language tends to impose extreme restrictions. Nonetheless, despite my own usual preferences, I'm always ...

Steve Raegele: Last Century

Read "Last Century" reviewed by Pascal-Denis Lussier

Montreal guitarist Steve Raegele's debut, Last Century, with bassist Miles Perkin and drummer Thom Gossage, marks the beginning of a career that will, no doubt, be looked back upon despite being disregarded at this stage. The album doesn't mark Raegele's launching point, however, but the due reward of a turbulent turning point, as the guitarist has ...

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.
