Joe Downard: Seven Japanese Tales

Read "Seven Japanese Tales" reviewed by Chris May

Up-and-coming London bassist Joe Downard's debut album is an ambitious affair which winningly blends intricate soundscapes created by retro-modern analog synthesisers with the two-horns-and-a-rhythm-section acoustic jazz tradition. Downard's sextet includes five other rising stars of the London scene, prominent among them trumpeter James Copus, tenor saxophonist Alex Hitchcock (whose self-titled album debut with his band AuB ...

Rob Luft: Life Is The Dancer

Read "Life Is The Dancer" reviewed by Chris May

British guitarist Rob Luft's debut album, Riser (Edition, 2017), was greeted with huge acclaim. Some observers likened his arrival to the emergence of Wes Montgomery or Pat Metheny. The music world is used to hyperbole, but for once the praise is justified. For anyone yet to hear Luft, a useful yardstick is the pianist Bill Evans: ...

Daniel Karlsson: Fuse Number Eleven

Read "Fuse Number Eleven" reviewed by Emmanuel Di Tommaso

Brad Mehldau: Finding Gabriel

Read "Finding Gabriel" reviewed by Emmanuel Di Tommaso

Se un'artista del calibro di Brad Mehldau riesce ancora a stupire dopo aver destrutturato in tutti i modi possibili la musica contemporanea, il motivo può essere solo un'opera d'arte complessa e stratificata, che non a caso trae le sue basi concettuali da una rilettura in chiave post-moderna delle profezie dell'Antico Testamento nel tentativo di offrire una ...

Josiah Everhart: Yearn in Years

Read "Yearn in Years" reviewed by John Bricker

Video game soundtracks immerse players by provoking a strong emotional response, either in the cozyness of a welcoming melody, the eerie dread of cold synths or the encouraging energy of an upbeat jazzy theme. Given how versatile and emotional this music can be for those who grow up with it, it is no surprise ...

Waldo's Gift: Capturing the Moment

Read "Waldo's Gift: Capturing the Moment" reviewed by Luke Seabright

If you were to somehow draw a map of the UK along cultural rather than demographic lines, suddenly jny: London wouldn't be so disproportionately large. After all, the most influential pop group of all time came from a small city a few hundred kilometres north of the capital. jny: Bristol is another town that has carved ...

Johan Lindstrom: Music For Empty Halls

Read "Music For Empty Halls" reviewed by Luca Casarotti

Il modo migliore di parlare di questo Music for Empty Halls è descriverne passo passo l'articolata struttura compositiva, che più di tutto cattura l'attenzione (e l'ammirazione) dell'ascoltatore. Il disco si apre su un ostinato in 12/8 suonato dalla chitarra, a cui presto si aggiungono contrabbasso e sax baritono. La ritmica cresce di dinamica con l'ingresso dell'hammond ...

Donny McCaslin Live at BIMHUIS, Amsterdam

Read "Donny McCaslin Live at BIMHUIS, Amsterdam" reviewed by BIMHUIS

As the bandleader on David Bowie's final album Blackstar, saxophonist Donny McCaslin witnessed first-hand the musician's penchant for reinvention. McCaslin applied that mindset to his new album Blow, which combines his propulsive saxophone playing with vibrant electronica and bombastic alternative rock, and which contains influences of jazz as well as from the likes of Radiohead and ...

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.
