S.O.S.: Looking for the Next One

Read "S.O.S.: Looking for the Next One" reviewed by John Kelman


With more and more archival “finds" hitting the shelves--real or virtual--it's becoming increasingly difficult to separate the wheat from the chaff. Just because an old, long considered lost recording has resurfaced doesn't inherently make it worthy of release: sometimes the sound isn't up to snuff--though, if it's a stellar performance, that can sometimes be forgiven--but other ...

The Not So Strange and Bizarre Life of Mike Taylor

Read "The Not So Strange and Bizarre Life of Mike Taylor" reviewed by Duncan Heining


Composer-pianist, Mike Taylor, lies buried in a touchingly simple grave in a cemetery in Southend. His body was found on the beach at Leigh-on-Sea in Essex in January 1969. It was assumed that he had committed suicide. He was 30 years old and didn't leave much of a legacy--a couple of albums now highly prized, a ...

G. F. Fitz-Gerald & Lol Coxhill: The Poppy Seed Affair

Read "The Poppy Seed Affair" reviewed by Nic Jones


Guitarist G.F. Fitz-Gerald has always mapped out musical territory every bit as distinct as that of Derek Bailey or Hans Reichel, while Lol Coxhill is one of the most distinctive soprano saxophonists on the planet. They've worked as a duo for decades and this one-DVD/two-CD set straddles those decades with rare aplomb. The ...

Dreamtime: Double Trouble

Read "Double Trouble" reviewed by Nic Jones


Reel Recordings has excelled in the business of audio restoration, as this 2CD/DVD set goes to show. On one level, Dreamtime is no more than a footnote in British jazz, but not only did the band feature some potent soloists, it was one of the few to bridge the divide between composed and free music with ...

Radar Favourites: Radar Favourites

Read "Radar Favourites" reviewed by Nic Jones


Full credit is due to Mike King and Reel Recordings for this exercise in historical reclamation. For a brief period back in the mid-1970s, Radar Favourites was a band with a pedigree. For one thing, it was saxophonist Geoff Leigh's first venture after his departure from Henry Cow, while guitarist G.F. Fitz-Gerald was responsible for the ...

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!
