Tim Berne: The Deceptive 4—Live

Read "The Deceptive 4—Live" reviewed by Mark Corroto

The difference between disc one and disc two of Tim Berne's Snakeoil release The Deceptive 4, two live recordings made eight years apart, might be the same difference between Miles Davis' first and second great quintets. Where Davis' The Legendary Prestige Quintet Sessions (Prestige, 2006) with John Coltrane from 1955-56 are stellar, they lack the complex ...

David Torn: Sun Of Goldfinger

Read "Sun Of Goldfinger" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

For less daring and disillusioned audiences, David Torn's ongoing conversation and debate with the twenty-first century Sun of Goldfinger might sound unnervingly like seventy-plus minutes of tuneless, churning exposition laying waste to conventional form. For the rest, these three uncompromising works create an immersive excursion into an intense creative mind opening itself to all possibilities.

Simon Jermyn’s Trot A Mouse: Pictorial Atlas Of Mammals

Read "Pictorial Atlas Of Mammals" reviewed by Henning Bolte

At times the music of an album can be strikingly different from common and even one's own perceptional mental grids and might challenge one's own horizon of expectation. This album is not only a clear example of it. It is unusual and fascinating how adversative, contrastive features are balanced out in its music: rough and gentle, ...

Tim Berne's Snakeoil: You've Been Watching Me

Read "You've Been Watching Me" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Snakeoil di Tim Berne è sicuramente formazione che farebbe fare l'en plein in un “Blindfold test," procedura ideata dal critico musicale Leonard Feather attraverso la quale il musicista in questione viene sottoposto all'ascolto di un disco, con lo scopo di individuarne il titolare ed esprimere una valutazione. Troppo riconoscibile l'impianto sonoro, troppo solide le coordinate stilistiche ...

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.
