Something Old

Read "Something Old" reviewed by Patrick Burnette

The boys start their trawl through some best-of-decade picks they missed during the last eight years by focusing on four albums in the, let's face it, somewhat amorphous “something old" category. By which we mean, I think, albums on best of decades lists featuring well-established artists playing in fairly familiar modes. Any, the results are mixed ...

Best of the Decade?

Read "Best of the Decade?" reviewed by Patrick Burnette

This is a strange one, listeners, as the boys compare and contrast various jazz “best-of" lists for the 2010's and then let you, the listener, “behind the curtain" as they decide how to populate the next four shows of the podcast. Mike's rubric: something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. Having already discussed 250 (count ...

Elevator to Hell!

Read "Elevator to Hell!" reviewed by Patrick Burnette

Sometimes the boys just can't agree. This is one of those times. Two new selections split them down the middle (though they at least “like" both selections), while one of the two oldies drives poor Mike (and Mike's family) up the proverbial wall (or is that escalator?) Odd crooner Scott Walker and the Giles Martin remix ...

Danny Green Interview

Read "Danny Green Interview" reviewed by Patrick Burnette

Lockdown can't stop the boys from interviewing interesting musicians (it's not like we did it in person before . . .) This time. pianist, composer and educator Danny Green visits our slightly demented neck of the woods to discuss his latest project (a group called LP and the Vinyl with a vocalist covering . . . ...

Subtle Is as Subtle Does

Read "Subtle Is as Subtle Does" reviewed by Patrick Burnette

Ya want big bands? We got big bands. Sometimes we got one in each speaker. In this exploration of the more extroverted side of jazz, the boys check out works by a blazing trumpet player (and world-class womanizer), a so-so clarinetist with a heart of gold, two piano-playing band leaders who both worship Duke Ellington, and ...

Revenge of the Cosmic Panda

Read "Revenge of the Cosmic Panda" reviewed by Patrick Burnette

Does harp music fill you with images of celestial angels, or a (relatively) tamed Pharoah Sanders? Either way, there's something for you here in this brief overview of “cosmic" jazz. We start with a good, long look at the early career of Pharaoh Sanders and his brief gig with displaced resident of Saturn, Sun Ra, then ...

The Cocaine Years

Read "The Cocaine Years" reviewed by Patrick Burnette

Listeners of a certain age will remember the Saturday Night Live “sound"--all squealing saxophones and twice-removed soul gestures. In this podcast we talk about one possible precursor to the sound and three of its best known practitioners--some of whom may or may not have partaken in Bolivian Marching Powder from time to time. No Pop Matters ...

Nicholas Krolak Interview

Read "Nicholas Krolak Interview" reviewed by Patrick Burnette

In this wide-ranging interview, the boys talk with bassist Nicholas Krolak, a Philadelphian with insights on pacing a set, marketing difficult-to-publicize music like jazz, the cost of including standards on a CD, and the oblique thinking of Bad Plus pianist Orrin Evans. There's also some discussion of “bachelor cookies" (not a euphemism) in there.

Some Girls' (Voices) Are Bigger Than Others

Read "Some Girls' (Voices) Are Bigger Than Others" reviewed by Patrick Burnette

Female vocalists take the stage this episode, with voices ranging from small and whispery to bold 'n' brassy and approaches ranging from the hardest of hardcore jazz to relatively pop-oriented (if not populist or low-brow). Most of these are brand new releases, so grab them up and support musicians stuck, with the rest of us, in ...

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.
