Kenny Burrell: Unlimited 1, Live at Catalina's

Read "Unlimited 1, Live at Catalina's" reviewed by Jack Bowers


Guitarist Kenny Burrell, who isn't generally known for hanging out with big bands, now has one of his own: the Los Angeles-based Jazz Orchestra Unlimited, for which he serves as music director on its debut album, Unlimited 1, Live at Catalina's. While the ensemble is splendid, individually and collectively, there's no doubt that Burrell is the ...

Paul Winter Sextet: Count Me In

Read "Paul Winter Sextet: Count Me In" reviewed by Duncan Heining


The Paul Winter Sextet might just be one of the best early sixties groups you never heard. Their story, and that of their leader and altoist Paul Winter's, is certainly one of the most remarkable in jazz. Had some director made a film of the Sextet's short life, jazz buffs would have scoffed at the conceit. ...

Harp Happenings: Brandee Younger And Pacific Harp Project

Read "Harp Happenings: Brandee Younger And Pacific Harp Project" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


Harp happenings are relatively rare in jazz, but they are there. And when two highly agreeable and strikingly different harp-centric affairs appear on your doorstep around the same time, it really makes you stop and take notice of the instrument, its potential, and the players who are moving it forward and outward in various directions. Both ...

Thelonius: Where Do We Go From Here?

Read "Where Do We Go From Here?" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay


Where Do We Go From Here? asks Bristol-based Thelonius on a seven track live mini album featuring the hip-hop tunes (from A Tribe Called Quest, J Dilla, Gang Starr and others) that formed the core of the band's early influences. Where indeed. The title might suggest a band that's lacking direction--the music suggests a band that's ...

Thelonius: Crows On The Beeline

Read "Crows On The Beeline" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay


Thelonius announced its arrival on the scene with a brief-but-fun self produced EP, Reminisce, in 2012. The quintet, from Bristol in the west of England, blended its mix of influences--most notably hip-hop and Thelonious Monk--into a hook-laden and imaginative set of tunes. It was over all too quickly. Thelonius returns with the download-only Crows On The ...

Hiromi: Alive

Read "Hiromi: Alive" reviewed by Jeff Winbush


If jazz has become a niche market in the music industry (and it is), a contributing factor for its slide into cultural irrelevance is a failure to promote and support new artists. No matter what sub-genre of jazz you personally love, across the board there is no sustained effort to develop a roster of first-tier talent ...

Paul Winter Sextet: Count Me In

Read "Count Me In" reviewed by Edward Blanco


The Paul Winter Sextet was a short-lived group from the 1960s, leaving little in terms of an imprint or legacy in jazz but for one distinguishing fact: it was the very first jazz group to perform in concert at The White House. After a grueling six-month State Department-sponsored tour of 23 Latin American countries, First Lady ...

Thelonius: Reminisce

Read "Reminisce" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay


It's that pesky Bristol scene again. 2012 has already seen some fine albums emanating from the English city--Busnoys' By Tapering Torchlight (Tall Guy Records) and Andy Hague's Cross My Palm (Ooh-Err Records) are just two examples. Now along comes Reminisce, from the five-piece Thelonius, to further enhance the city's reputation for quality music.Guitarist Tim ...

Take Five With Richard Evans

Read "Take Five With Richard Evans" reviewed by Richard Evans


Meet Richard Evans: I am a 52 year-old who took up drumming seven years ago and wished that I had done it when I was much, much younger. I love hip-hop as well as jazz, and my influences have really opened my mind to what is possible with hard work, dedication and a love ...

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!
