Magnus Granberg: Let Pass My Weary Guiltless Ghost

Read "Let Pass My Weary Guiltless Ghost" reviewed by John Eyles

Some eight years after his Another Timbre debut, Ist Gefallen In Der Schnee (2012), the good news for followers of Swedish composer-performer Marcus Granberg is that Let Pass My Weary Guiltless Ghost--his ninth release on the label in as many years--is one of his best yet. Further good news is that this album features a ten-member ...

Old and new Frank Denyer

Read "Old and new Frank Denyer" reviewed by John Eyles

It can often be difficult for a record label to follow a release as successful as Another Timbre's monumental five-disc set Morton Feldman Piano has proved to be, so the next wave of five releases on the label is particularly interesting. Of the five, two are by British composer Frank Denyer who has had two previous ...

Ideas Of Noise 2018

Read "Ideas Of Noise 2018" reviewed by Martin Longley

Ideas Of Noise The Edge & Vivid Projects Birmingham, England August 3-5, 2018 Noise isn't really noise. Much of this weekender's content was somewhat sculpted, even if often rough (or scaly, or oozing) to the touch. A 'noise' outcome is usually in the eardrum of the victim, as ...

John Butcher

Read "John Butcher" reviewed by John Eyles

In the Building a Jazz Library article on Evan Parker, it says that seasoned Parker followers would describe him as the finest improvising saxophonist of his generation. Curiously, many of those same people would use exactly that phrase about John Butcher. The simple explanation for this apparent contradiction is that we are talking about two generations; ...

Green Man Glanusk Park Brecon Beacons Wales August 17-20, 2017 Like the now deceased Big Chill festival, the Green Man weekender languishes in an ideal location, set within the rolling Brecon Beacons in south Wales, verdant and misty, its main Mountain Stage stretching across a natural ...

David Sylvian: There Is No Love

Read "There Is No Love" reviewed by Phil Barnes

David Sylvian has long divided opinion. For every passionate supporter there are half a dozen who will decry his every move as pretentious. Even among his fanbase there are many who want him to do something more to their taste, along the lines of some past triumphs like Japan's Quiet Life or Tin Drum, or solo ...

New Rhodri Davies on Another Timbre

Read "New Rhodri Davies on Another Timbre" reviewed by John Eyles

Since 2000, harpist and electronicist Rhodri Davies has evolved continuously. He has metamorphosed from an extraordinary harpist--equally comfortable playing classical music, contemporary compositions or freely improvising--into an exploratory and innovative musician who continually extends the range of his playing and the language of his instrument. Davies has happily extended his technique by deploying preparations, playing tabletop ...

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.
