Not Two...But Twenty! Festival

Read "Not Two...But Twenty! Festival" reviewed by John Sharpe

Not Two...But Twenty! Festival Wlen, Poland September 21-23, 2018 Intro There are some things worth celebrating in style, one of them being marked persistence in the face of adversity. That pretty much describes the continued existence of any jazz record label in these straitened times. To mark its 20th ...

Altoadige Jazz Festival 2018

Read "Altoadige Jazz Festival 2018" reviewed by Libero Farnè

Varie Sedi Provincia di Bolzano 29.06--08.07.2018 Da alcuni anni il sottotitolo di questo festival potrebbe essere “Young European Jazz Festival," visto che il suo curatore Klaus Widmann evita accuratamente di invitare gruppi americani o nomi europei già troppo noti. Il suo obiettivo è invece quello di sondare le giovani tendenze ...

Peter Danemo: Peter Danemo

Read "Peter Danemo" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni

Swedish drummer Peter Danemo leads his own groups and quartets. The first one featured the late pianist Esbjörn Svenssonand was called the Peter Danemo Kapell-- since the late eighties but his output as a leader is relatively rare.

Read "Fredrik Ljungkvist / Yun Kan 10: Ten" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni

Acclaimed Swedish reed player Fredrik Ljungkvist's key solo outfit is the Yun Kan band.

Goran Strandberg Nonet: Monks Mood

Read "Monks Mood" reviewed by Florence Wetzel

Twentieth-century jazz offered bountiful gifts that musicians will continue to mine for, well, as long as people play jazz. One gift is pianist Thelonious Monk's compositions, which are surely among the music's most original and appealing; as Past Daily states, you can never get too much Monk in your diet. Another gift is the nonet format ...

The Resonance Ensemble: Kafka In Flight

Read "Kafka In Flight" reviewed by John Sharpe

It may subvert expectations to note that the “resonance" in this group's name is with the big bands of the 1940s and '50s, rather than any forbidding improv austerity. Kafka In Flight, the third release by Chicago reedman/composer Ken Vandermark's multinational aggregation, follows the Live In Lviv (Not Two, 2008) LP and eponymous ten-CD set (Not ...

The Resonance Ensemble: Kafka in Flight

Read "Kafka in Flight" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Until the formation of The Resonance Ensemble in 2007, Ken Vandermark's writing for large ensembles had been limited to his electro-acoustic Territory Band and Peter Brötzmann's sprawling free jazz Chicago Tentet. With this 10-man group, he succeeds in what he works so very hard at with the Vandermark 5. Like V5, his working band, he is ...

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.
