Read "ToPaRaMa" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

The King Crimson connection is inherent on this program by two powerhouse drummers Pat Mastelotto (King Crimson, David Sylvian) and Tobias Ralph (Defunkt, Adrian Belew Power Trio).

InterStatic: Arise

Read "Arise" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

UK-reared keyboardist Roy Powell (Mumpbeak, Naked Truth)has called Norway home for several years while serving as a prime motivator for this futuristic UK-based, record label via sideman duties, and co-leading groups such as Interstatic. The band pushes the envelope yet again on this psycho, acid-rock slant on the jazz organ trio format. Nonetheless, the trio ups ...

Jacob Young: Forever Young

Read "Jacob Young: Forever Young" reviewed by John Kelman

While all groups aim for the kind of collective chemistry that can make, for example, five people speak with a single voice, how they get there can vary significantly.

Mumpbeak: Mumpbeak

Read "Mumpbeak" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

When considering most instances of progressive rock, Mumpbeak is a horse of a different color. With four world- class bassists, chiefly performing on alternating tracks, and keyboardist Roy Powell's unearthly sound-shaping mechanisms garnered from an electronically souped-up Hohner clavinet, the band brashly merges a doomsday panorama with insurrectionary tactics. King Crimson drummer ...

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.
