Il Meglio del 2017 Secondo Luca Vitali

Read "Il Meglio del 2017 Secondo Luca Vitali" reviewed by Luca Vitali


Un'annata buona, caratterizzata da alcuni graditi ritorni fuori dai canonici confini del jazz: Arto Lindsay, a tredici anni dal precedente «Salt», Jon Balke, con il secondo capitolo dedicato alla musica arabo andalusa di «Siwan», e in ultimo (ma non per importanza) John Lurie, che dopo diciassette anni di oblio forzato è tornato a farci visita nei ...

Sex Mob Descends On Dublin!

Sex Mob Descends On Dublin!

Sex Mob is a band out of time: a smartly old-fashioned quartet of world-class musicians with a satchel full of charts. Sex Mob is a band of the now: post-modern waltzes mutating into dub-echoed free jazz. Sex Mob is social music: a rollicking midnight set with clatter and drinks and a band. Sex Mob is a ...

Sex Mob: Plays Fellini

Read "Plays Fellini" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff


Nino Rota, l'immaginario felliniano e i Sex Mob. Una triangolazione perfetta. Talmente perfetta che vien da chiedersi come mai si sia fatta disco soltanto all'alba del 2013. La risposta è nelle note di copertina. Racconta Steven Bernstein che l'idea dell'omaggio gli ronzava in testa da un bel pezzo. Ma suona qua e partecipa là, si è ...

Sex Mob: Cinema, Circus & Spaghetti (Sex Mob Plays Fellini: The Music of Nino Rota)

Read "Cinema, Circus & Spaghetti (Sex Mob Plays Fellini: The Music of Nino Rota)" reviewed by Troy Collins

Bernstein realized early on that playing radically altered covers was the best way to lure an audience into his roguish sound world. Since then ...

Sex Mob: Sexmob Meets Medeski live in Willisau 2006

Read "Sexmob Meets Medeski live in Willisau 2006" reviewed by Brandt Reiter


How best to describe slide trumpeter Steven Bernstein's singular quartet Sex Mob? Maybe we should start with mercurial musical magician Bernstein himself, whose exotic career as sideman, musical director, arranger and composer has included ten years with John Lurie's Lounge Lizards and stints alongside everyone from Bill Frisell to Sam Rivers, the Flying Karamazov Brothers and, ...

Steven Bernstein / Marcus Rojas / Kresten Osgood: Tattoos and Mushrooms

Read "Tattoos and Mushrooms" reviewed by Chris Mosey


The line-up of slide trumpet, tuba and drums is, to say the least, somewhat unusual in jazz. As is the choice of Hank Williams' “So Lonesome I Could Cry" as a vehicle for improvisation. On Tattoos and Mushrooms, trumpeter Steven Bernstein, tubaist Marcus Rojas and drummer Kresten Osgood go boldly into aural regions where no man ...

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!
