Dave Stryker with Bob Mintzer and the WDR Big Band: Blue Soul

Read "Blue Soul" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Bob Mintzer had an idea. The renowned tenor saxophonist, who serves as principal conductor of Cologne, Germany's world-class WDR Big Band, had made several appearances as guest artist with guitarist Dave Stryker's New York-based organ trio and was so impressed that he thought it would be a good idea to re-orchestrate some of Stryker's music for ...

Read "Begin Again" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

Throughout pianist Fred Hersch's long career, he has mostly worked in trios and other small units, rarely doing much with large ensembles. That makes this session of Hersch featured with Germany's WDR Big Band a special treat.

Fred Hersch & the WDR Big Band: Begin Again

Read "Begin Again" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Pianist Fred Hersch, who needs no introduction to most well-informed jazz enthusiasts, is by and large known as a leader of trios and other small groups.

Paul Heller: Paul Heller Meets Roman Schwaller

Read "Paul Heller Meets Roman Schwaller" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Granted, Paul Heller meeting Roman Schwaller isn't such a big deal here in the States. It is, however, quite a big deal in Germany and western Europe as a whole where Heller and Schwaller are among the reigning monarchs of the tenor saxophone, akin to such American twosomes as Ammons / Gordon, Sims / Cohn or, ...

Vince Mendoza: Homecoming

Read "Homecoming" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Questo disco di Vince Mendoza (il quinto con la WDR Big Band in 25 anni di sodalizio) forse non sarà acclamato come le collaborazioni con Arif Mardin (Jazzpaña, ACT 1992) o Joe Zawinul (Brown Street, Intuition 2006), nominati o vincitori di Grammys, ma resta un pregevole lavoro orchestrale anche senza ospiti di grido. ...

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.
