Gary Husband & Markus Reuter: Music Of Our Times

Read "Music Of Our Times" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

A tour of Japan was canceled. Some lag time ensued. So Leonardo Pavkovic—el jefe at MoonJune Records—set up some studio time for multi-instrumentalist (pianist here) Gary Husband and guitarist Markus Reuter. The result is Music Of Our Times. The set is spontaneously-composed. It is tranquil, moody and atmospheric. The first impression of the opening ...

Jonah Prazen-Johnson: Imagine Giving Up

Read "Imagine Giving Up" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

When Jonah Parzen-Johnson released his first full-length album, Michiana (Primary Records, 2012), the Brooklyn-based artist seemed to give priority status to the electronics through which he filtered his baritone saxophone compositions. Even more so, Parzen-Johnson's 2015 follow up, Remember When Things Were Better Tomorrow (also on Primary), was dominated by ambient drones. Parzen-Johnson has continued to ...

Read "Experimentalists: Talking with Adam Berenson, Dana Jessen, and Abdul Moimême" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

The newly opened Théatre des Champs-Elysées was sold out on the night of May 29, 1913.

The self-titled debut from UK-based Kollega is a brief and eclectic collection merging multiple technologies with acoustic and electric instrumentation.

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
