From Wolves to Whales: Strandwal

Read "Strandwal" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

Il quartetto From Wolves to Whales, nome azzeccato per un significativo incontro di quattro personalità al vertice del jazz e dell'improvvisazione contemporanea, si era già proposto nel 2015 con il CD omonimo, dopo il rodaggio di tre concerti a Manhattan e a Brooklyn nel febbraio del 2014. Il sodalizio, imperniato sulla lunga frequentazione di Nate Wooley ...

Harris Eisenstadt Canada Day: Quartet Live

Read "Quartet Live" reviewed by Stefano Merighi

Il talento percussivo ma ancor più compositivo di Harris Eisenstadt viene confermato da questa incisione dal vivo, che la formazione modulare Canada Day—qui ridotta a quartetto—ha realizzato ad Avignone nel marzo 2018 durante un fortunato tour europeo. Anche se Eisenstadt ha approfondito tradizioni percussive sia africane che centroamericane, la sua musica non sfrutta ...

John Sharpe's Best Releases Of 2019

Read "John Sharpe's Best Releases Of 2019" reviewed by John Sharpe

There's sometimes a backlash against picking the year's best albums. Understandably so when it entails pitting one honest artistic endeavour against another. Best to view the selections as a chance to pick up on something that you might otherwise have missed. As a listener I always look forward to the annual year end lists for precisely ...

The Fictive Five: Anything Is Possible

Read "Anything Is Possible" reviewed by John Sharpe

Anything Is Possible constitutes the second release from a quintet first convened by San Francisco-based reedman Larry Ochs for his 2013 residency at The Stone in New York. Following that successful summit, and perhaps not unrelated, the pairing of trumpeter Nate Wooley and bassist Pascal Niggenkemper, players as at home in extemporized form as in adventurous ...

Paul Plimley, Evan Parker & Denis Fournier

Read "Paul Plimley, Evan Parker & Denis Fournier" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

This show marks the one-year anniversary of publishing One Man's Jazz on All About Jazz's radio section, and we're taking a decided dip into the “deep end" of the improvisation pool. There's lots of avant-garde, experimental, free form, free improv on the bill. Is it “noise," is it the future? That's for the listener to decide, ...

The Fictive Five: Anything Is Possible

Read "Anything Is Possible" reviewed by Don Phipps

The music of Larry Ochs's The Fictive Five's Anything Is Possible reminds one of a Rubik's cube, with every twist and turn encouraging more twists and turns, promising a resolution that seems just beyond reach. Ochs and his bandmates use an incredible diversity of sound ranges, rhythms, tones, and electronic effects to fashion their abstractions. At ...

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.
