Peter Evans / Sam Pluta: Two Live Sets

Read "Two Live Sets" reviewed by Mark Corroto

The most extraordinary music ever presented has elicited the same time-honored “what the [email protected]#k was that?" response. From Elvis (both Presley and Costello) to Grandmaster Flash, Igor Stravinsky, and Charlie Parker, the “shock of the new'" (to borrow a phrase from art critic Robert Hughes) adjusts listeners' criteria for judging a composition or performance, and often ...

Read "Serpentines" reviewed by John Sharpe

On the eponymous Serpentines, German-born, NYC-based saxophonist Ingrid Laubrock's unveils a new outfit featuring unconventional instrumentation, peopled by an all star cast.

Dre Hocevar Trio: Coding Of Evidentiality

Read "Coding Of Evidentiality" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Given the title of drummer Dre Hocevar's recording, the question arises: can one classify or identify a system's disorder, i.e. entropy? The liner notes give us a hint.

Rocket Science: Rocket Science

Read "Rocket Science" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

È cosa nota che, quando c'è di mezzo Evan Parker, nove volte su dieci la musica va nella direzione da lui indicata e determinata. Non fa eccezione questo nuovo titolo dell'etichetta di Peter Evans, testimonianza di una live session datata 25 maggio 2012 in quel di Londra (Vortex). Le folate improvvisative parkeriane, ora ...

Rocket Science: Rocket Science

Read "Rocket Science" reviewed by Mark Corroto

It isn't rocket science except when it is, indeed, Rocket Science. This renowned group of improvising superheroes delivers an audacious take on electric- acoustic chamber music. Rocket Science is a quartet assembled by trumpeter Peter Evans, who is probably best known for his work in the disobedient quartet Mostly Other People Do The Killing. He also ...

Computer Music, Part 2

Read "Computer Music, Part 2" reviewed by Nick Catalano

Last month we initiated an exploration into the world of non-traditional electronic musical “instruments," by referencing experiments that Wallace Roney had undertaken by including a turntablist in his band a few years ago. It was merely one example of the burgeoning use of the turntable in music, and I noted the interest it had for me ...

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.
