Norbert Stein: We Are

Read "We Are" reviewed by Glenn Astarita


Venerable German saxophonist, composer Norbert Stein's various ensemble manifestations draw inspiration from the work of 19th century scientist, Dr. Faustroll who developed the 'pata physics' theory, defined as a science centered on “unreal logic."

Norbert Stein: Pata On The Cadillac

Read "Pata On The Cadillac" reviewed by Glenn Astarita


German tenor saxophonist Norbert Stein is a distinguished composer and leader.

Norbert Stein Pata, Horns & Drums: Silent Sitting Bulls

Read "Silent Sitting Bulls" reviewed by Glenn Astarita


German saxophonist Norbert Stein's hefty discography surrounds French journalist Alfred Jarry's pseudoscience of pataphysics amid many existential relations of art, life and human imagination. With his various Pata-based ensembles, Stein's music intimates comprehensive manipulations of jazz and world music. Organic, yet equipped with brute force tactics, the saxophonist's compositions boats a native stylistic component, hugely evident ...

Norbert Stein Pata, Horns & Drums: Silent Sitting Bulls

Read "Silent Sitting Bulls" reviewed by Nic Jones


Silent Sitting Bulls is the second release by this quartet, and it's clear that the time they've spent together has not been wasted. The outcome is an exceptional level of musical coherence, and it's not stretching a point to put their music alongside that of some of Arthur Blythe's ensembles as a model which, while it ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
