Linda Sikhakhane, Raoul Bjorkenheim & Satoko Fujii

Read "Linda Sikhakhane, Raoul Bjorkenheim & Satoko Fujii" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

Things get a little rockin' this time out with the powerful guitar of Raoul Bjorkenheim and a top Italian quartet digging into the music of John Coltrane. Then he's front and center in the J&F Band, a mostly Italian ensemble, led by legendary Allman Brothers Band drummer Jaimoe and bassist Joe Fonda (and Joe sings! Who ...

Mauro Sigura Quartet: Terra Vetro

Read "Terra Vetro" reviewed by Chris May

Although the Italian oud player and composer Mauro Sigura bills his band as a world-jazz group which combines traditional Ottoman-Mediterranean music with modern European jazz, the band's sophomore album is not full-on, capped-up World Jazz in the manner of, say, fellow oudist Anouar Brahem's Blue Maqams (ECM, 2017). That album, made with double bassist Dave Holland, ...

Angel Bat Dawid, Fay Victor, Satoko Fujii and Clean Feed Releases

Read "Angel Bat Dawid, Fay Victor, Satoko Fujii and Clean Feed Releases" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

Risk-taking singer Fay Victor's powerhouse new album for ESP-Disk is called We've Had Enough, but the title could easily be used on Angel Bat Dawid's latest as well. It reflects some rather shabby treatment on a recent our in Europe. Her album Live sees and Tha Brothahood in full bore. Other new releases sampled come from ...

Read "Mantle" reviewed by John Sharpe

Japanese pianist Satoko Fujii rarely stands still. When she and Spanish drummer Ramon Lopez toured Japan in 2019 on the back of their duo album Confluence (Libra, 2019), they took the opportunity to add Fujii's partner trumpeter Natsuki Tamura to the line up. To make things fresher still, they set themselves a challenge: to each write ...

Natsuki Tamura, Satoko Fujii and Ramon Lopez: Mantle

Read "Mantle" reviewed by Troy Dostert

Trumpeter Natsuki Tamura and pianist Satoko Fujii have made so many records together that it seems impossible to keep track of them all. Partners in life and in music, they have collaborated on everything from duo recordings to Fujii's large-scale orchestras. In 2020 alone, their Kaze quartet released Sandstorm (Circum-Disc) featuring electronics specialist Ikue Mori, and ...

Read "Pentas: Tribute To Eric and Chris Stern" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Pianist Satoko Fujii and trumpeter Natsuki Tamura came off a European tour in 2019 and went into the studio in Krakow, Poland, and recorded Pentas, their seventh duo disc, an effort that joins the Fujii/Tamura pairings How Many (Libra Records, 1997), Clouds (Libra Records, 2002), Like In Krakow, In November (Not Two Records, 2006), Chun (Libra ...

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.
