Lebanon: Jazz And The Revolution

Read "Lebanon: Jazz And The Revolution" reviewed by Ian Patterson

When people's anger and frustration spill onto Beirut's streets, music is one of the first things to suffer. Every few years, it seems, roads are blocked, and crowds swell the downtown area--angry at Syrian intervention or political assassination, enraged by Israeli attack, sick to the teeth of inadequate garbage collection. There's always something to ...

Jazz From Around the World: Asia

Read "Jazz From Around the World: Asia" reviewed by Hrayr Attarian

Asia is the most culturally and ethnically diverse continent. It is, therefore, hard to distill all its jazz influenced musical legacies into 10 albums. Some countries have robust jazz scenes that, nevertheless, are fundamentally derivative of European and American styles. In other musical cultures jazz has just recently made inroads. Below are 10 historic records that ...

Marius Neset/Trondheim Jazz Orchestra: Lion

Read "Lion" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Lion is a good name for Marius Neset's first recording with the Trondheim Jazz Orchestra, for like a great cat, the Norwegian orchestra purrs and prowls, roars and pounces. Regardless of tempo--whether cruising or charging--there's majesty in the collective voice. Commissioned for the Molde Jazz Festival in 2012, the momentum from that performance took Neset and ...

Francesco Turrisi: Songs of Experience

Read "Songs of Experience" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Pianist Francesco Turrisi's first two albums as leader, the classically influenced jazz of Si Dolce e il Tormento (Diatribe Recordings, 2009) and the more brooding, improvised Fotografia (Diatribe Recordings, 2011) were united by Turrisi's mostly spare voice as much as they were by the folk, classical and jazz threads from which he draws inspiration. Here, Turrisi ...

Karin Hammr, Chris Jennings, Ingrid Jensen, Patrick Goraguer: Land

Read "Land" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Given the vast, wide-ranging collective experience of the four musicians, which runs the gamut from bop to big band, from South African jazz-fusion to pop, and from Brazilian music to more experimental fields, a more obviously eclectic recording wouldn't have been a surprise. Instead, the music on Land has a distinct, unified identity. Songwriting credits are ...

Daphna Sadeh: Through Walls

Read "Daphna Sadeh: Through Walls" reviewed by Ian Patterson

It's to her credit that Israeli-born composer and double bassist Daphna Sadeh has embraced the vibrant multi-culturalism of the great melting pot of Israel to be the defining character of her music. Her exile is less political than driven by more basic human needs, and her openness to all cultures and a brighter future shines through ...

Daphna Sadeh and the Voyagers: Reconciliation

Read "Reconciliation" reviewed by Ian Patterson

The ringing endorsement by John Zorn, describing bassist Daphna Sadeh and the Voyager's Reconciliation as 'brilliant and hypnotic... seductive and powerful music" might sound just a tad like self publicity, given that he commissioned the music for his own label, were it not for the fact that it is true. Sadeh has led the Voyagers on ...

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.
