The Wrong Object

Blending psychedelic jazz with modern rock sensibilities, the music of the Wrong Object is influenced by a vast array of artists ranging from Canterbury Scene prog rock à la Soft Machine and Gong to Béla Bartok, Aka Moon, Charlie Mingus and Frank Zappa. While their repertoire contains mainly original compositions, they also play a special set of Zappa covers on demand. Since its creation in early 2002, The Wrong Object has played some forty gigs in various venues ranging from small pubs to big festivals. Some of them were augmented by guest performances by the likes of Ed Mann, Elton Dean, Harry Beckett, Marc Mangen, Domguè, Marco Maurizi, Nicolas Ankoudinoff, Clementine Gasser, Frogg Café, Jaap Blonk, and pataphysician-poet-vocalist Andrew Norris, whose work with the band culminated in a show held at the Galerie 2016 in Brussels on the occasion of Serge Vandercam's 79th birthday. After a successful mini-tour of the UK, they performed at the 2004 “Zappanale” festival where they played a special gig featuring Zappa's legendary percussionist Ed Mann, with whom they also hope to play a few more dates soon


Keith Jarrett: Rio

Read "Rio" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

On occasion, Keith Jarrett's persona has overshadowed his creative contributions to music. Köln Concert (ECM, 1975) represented a defining benchmark for the legions who discovered jazz through it almost forty years ago. But while that seminal work was brilliant, it was not the virtuoso pianist best solo work. The live, spontaneously improvised Rio may not only ...

Keith Jarrett: Rio

Read "Rio" reviewed by Hrayr Attarian

Rio documents one of Keith Jarrett's improvised concerts for which the pianist is famous. Like most of his dozen or so such albums, the title refers to the location where it was recorded, but the similarity ends there, since the two-disc set is a very unique work. 36 years after his groundbreaking The ...


Keith Jarrett: Rio

Read "Rio" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Sembra incredibile, ma la nuova formula dei concerti di piano solo inaugurata da Keith Jarrett con il Carnegie Hall Concert, al rientro sulle scene da solista dopo la pausa forzata, riesce a dare origine a dischi che sembrano ogni volta migliori dei precedenti. E' così anche per questo Rio, pubblicato a soli sei mesi dalla registrazione, ...


Keith Jarrett: Rio

Read "Rio" reviewed by Orlando Bird

Keith Jarrett's first solo piano album, Facing You (ECM, 1972), came out nearly forty years ago; since then he's become the high priest of piano improvisation, famed for his ability to walk onstage and, as a bemused Vladimir Ashkenazy put it, “play all the right notes" on the spot. Koln Concert (ECM, 1975) has sold almost ...


Keith Jarrett: Rio

Read "Rio" reviewed by John Kelman

If music is a reflection of where we live, it must also be a reflection of where we are at any given moment. As much as the undercurrent redolent of an artist's home can often be heard, a live performance can equally draw inspiration from where it is, especially if it's a place with its own ...

Till Brönner: Rio

Read "Rio" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Dischi come questo sono disarmanti. Hanno tutto al posto giusto. Nessuna smagliatura. Non danno, almeno apparentemente, alcun appiglio alle feroci zanne dei critici musicali. C’è un produttore importante, Larry Klein, che garantirebbe per tutto. C’è un’etichetta prestigiosa, la Verve, e una casa discografica multinazionale, la Universal, che proteggono dalle tempeste dei mercati. Poi c’è una pletora ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
