Samo Salamon Quartet: Two Hours

Read "Two Hours" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff


Strano album questo dello sloveno Samo Salamon, sicuramente uno dei chitarristi più interessanti delle ultime generazioni. Si apre magnificamente con una bella melodia in dieci, prosegue con un omaggio a Steve Lacy decisamente fuori dagli schemi, e poi incappa in un passo falso, in una melodia piuttosto banale, che chi vi scrive trova, alla luce dei ...

Samo Salamon Quartet: Two Hours

Read "Two Hours" reviewed by Paul Olson


Next time you find yourself underwhelmed by a jazz recording on an indie jazz label, it might be entirely the fault of the artist--some people make bad records, after all. That said, the whole system might be the culprit: small labels offer musicians opportunities to do sessions, but don't (and usually can't) give them what they ...

Samo Salamon Quartet: Two Hours

Read "Two Hours" reviewed by David Miller


Samo Salamon is a master guitarist. His chops go unchallenged; at any moment he could play any note or chord on the instrument. That said, Two Hours is a disappointment. Salamon and his bandmates (Tony Malaby, tenor sax; Mark Helias, bass; Tom Rainey, drums) fall victim to two of the biggest traps in jazz: sub-par songwriting ...

Samo Salamon Quartet: Two Hours

Read "Two Hours" reviewed by John Kelman


Sometimes two hours is enough. Groups like Oregon and the Dave Holland Quintet have shown the value of developing long-term chemistry, but sometimes the energy of the unexpected can be equally motivating.

Samo Salamon Quartet: Ornethology

Read "Ornethology" reviewed by Javier AQ Ortiz


Review: Quick and to the Point: Ornette Coleman and John Scofield ought to be proud! A musical convergence between Ornette Coleman, Slovenia and John Scofield doesn't figure high in any jazz critic's list of music to look for. Although not exhaustive, the previous three parameters of understanding, however, do serve as guidelines for Ornethology. ...

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!
