Pulled By Magnets: Rose Golden Doorways

Read "Rose Golden Doorways" reviewed by Chris May

After a momentous start in the mid 2000s with saxophonist Pete Wareham's Acoustic Ladyland and his own band, Polar Bear, drummer Sebastian Rochford's path through British jazz has been distinguished, though not without the odd glitch. The highs have been Himalayan. Perhaps most notably, he played a key role in reeds player Shabaka Hutchings' Sons Of ...

Read "Live From Birmingham: Dinosaur, Meatraffle, Hollywood Vampires, Black Asteroids & Paul Lamb" reviewed by Martin Longley

Dinosaur Hare & Hounds June 14, 2018 Tonite, for one nite only, this is the band called Dinoseb, or perhaps Polarsaur. For some mysterious reason, Dinosaur's regular sticksman Corrie Dick went missing, to be guest-starred by Seb Rochford, most famed for his own combo, Polar Bear. Even more shocking was ...

Andy Sheppard: Romaria

Read "Romaria" reviewed by Luca Casarotti

ECM rappresenta quasi per antonomasia un'estetica della sottrazione, fatta di tempi dilatati, atmosfere rarefatte e poche, a volte pochissime, note: solo le note necessarie, come vuole la massima di João Gilberto da cui prende il titolo l'autobiografia di Enrico Rava, un artista che non a caso ha legato il suo nome a quello dell'etichetta di Manfred ...

Theo Girard

After surveying scenes from 4 continents with projects as varied as Bratsch, Macha Gharibian, le Bruit du [sign], Sibiel or Volo, Théo Girard releases the first album in his name featuring french trumpet player Antoine Berjeaut and British drummer Seb Rochford (Sons of Kemet, Polar Bear). 30YearsFrom is a project that evokes the first fruits, the first spark, the birth. As Théo Girard explains : « I grew up in a musical environment, my mother was a freelance costume designer for the opera and my father was the founding violinist of Bratsch (a famous French band) and also played in free jazz bands like Alan Silva’s Celestrial Communication Orchestra in the 80s

Sons of Kemet: Your Queen Is A Reptile

Read "Your Queen Is A Reptile" reviewed by Enrico Bettinello

Con il consueto ritardo (tempo tecnico di maturazione lo definirebbe qualcuno di più diplomatico) anche il mondo globalizzato del jazz si sta accorgendo del talento di Shabaka Hutchings. Chi bazzica infatti il jazz europeo più vivace non può non avere notato da tempo il sassofonista inglese, con i The Comet Is Coming, con Louis Moholo, con ...

Live From Birmingham: Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club, Mark Holub, George Clinton & Polar Bear

Read "Live From Birmingham: Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club, Mark Holub, George Clinton & Polar Bear" reviewed by Martin Longley

Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club Symphony Hall April 13, 2015 Rarely does a gig prompt such an ambivalent response as this 'adiós' show by the very veteran Buena Vista posse. Musical vibrations were typically very positive within their extensive set-list of Cuban songs, covering all moods, from up-tempo near-salsa ...

Andy Sheppard Quartet Colston Hall Bristol Jazz & Blues Festival Bristol March 7, 2015 A “local hero" is how the emcee described saxophonist/composer Andy Sheppard.

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.
