Conference Call: Prism

Read "Prism" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Conference Call is a quartet, but could also be described as a trio+ because the core members—saxophonist and bass clarinetist Gebhard Ullmann, pianist Michael Jefry Stevens, and bassist Joe Fonda—have been touring and recording together for more than two decades. The plus moniker derives from the quartet's interchange of drummers. Early on, the seat was occupied ...

Conference Call: Prism

Read "Prism" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

Most jazz groups that stay together for a long time, such as The Modern Jazz Quartet or The Art Ensemble of Chicago, achieve a certain prominence. It is a surprise then to realize that the lesser-known band, Conference Call, has been around since 1999 and is here releasing its eighth album. The group's core ...

Conference Call: Prism

Read "Prism" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Conference Call: Prism

Read "Prism" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

During the roiling twenty years that Conference Call has willfully crisscrossed the broad Atlantic, the individual drummers haven't participated in all of the round trips. The pre-2020 drummer rotation was Matt Wilson, who left the band prior to its first tour in 2001 to prep for the delivery of triplets, Han Bennink, George Schuller, and Gerry ...

PRISM Quartet: Heritage/Evolution, Volume 1

Read "Heritage/Evolution, Volume 1" reviewed by Maurizio Zerbo

Il quartetto di sassofoni PRISM, composto da Timothy McAllister, Zachary Shemon, Matthew Levy e Taimur Sullivan, ha assorbito nel tempo gli stimoli più fecondi del jazz contemporaneo fino ad ospitare i più fulgidi sassofonisti di oggi. Heritage/Evolution distilla questa esperienza in un progetto rigoroso sul piano compositivo e dell'organizzazione dello spazio sonoro. Camaleonticamente cangianti, le musiche ...

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!
