Vossa Jazz 2016

Read "Vossa Jazz 2016" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Vossa Jazz Various venues jny:Voss, Norway March 18-20, 2016 Perched high on the mountain side, the weather-beaten wooden farm houses of the Voss folk museum command a truly impressive view of the town below, ringed by snow-capped mountains, interlocking valleys and ice-covered fjords that stretch to the four points ...

EGG3: The Butcher Diarias

Read "The Butcher Diarias" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni

The marriage of jazz--in all its incarnations--and metal may sound at first as a sacrilegious act but not for a creative musician in the vibrant Norwegian music scene. Norwegian metal bands defined the black metal sub-genre in the eighties and nineties. Moreover, the young generation of Norwegian jazz-trained musicians ignore the American strictly codified version of ...

SH.TG.N: SH.TG.N

Read "SH.TG.N" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Before the 21st Century, the worlds of metal and jazz rarely, if ever, intersected. But that's all changed, so much so that musicians from both sides of the fence are rethinking their music, demolishing self-imposed genre boundaries and coming up with some truly innovative sounds. Belgium's SH.TG.N has the same sort of pioneering spirit. Yes, the ...

Thomas Stronen's Time is a Blind Guide & Elephant9: Oslo, Norway, March 20-21, 2013

Read "Thomas Stronen's Time is a Blind Guide & Elephant9: Oslo, Norway, March 20-21, 2013" reviewed by John Kelman

When you've got some time to kill between two festivals--in this case, Burghausen, Germany's B-Jazz Festival and Vossa Jazz in Voss, Norway, the following weekend--there are few better places to do it than Oslo, a city that supports live music better than most cities in the world, with the possible exception of New York. Oslo's residents ...

Elephant9: Atlantis

Read "Atlantis" reviewed by John Kelman

Ever a collective, Elephant9's Atlantis represents the Norwegian power trio's most egalitarian outing yet. 2008's Dodovoodoo and 2010's Walk the Nile were, for the most part, dominated compositionally by keyboardist and Supersilent/Humcrush coconspirator Ståle Storløkken. Atlantis is more evenly split between Storløkken's four tracks to bassist Nikolai Hængsle Eilertsen's three, but most importantly demonstrates a continued ...

Elephant9: Live at the BBC

Read "Live at the BBC" reviewed by John Kelman

Despite the re-emergence of vinyl as a once-again acceptable medium, it's still bigger in some countries than others. In Norway, there are now labels that are releasing vinyl-only editions, including the intrepid Rune Grammofon, which introduced its The Last Record Company a couple years back, with limited-run albums including guitarist Stian Westerhus' Galore (2009) and equally ...

Shining: Live Blackjazz

Read "Live Blackjazz" reviewed by John Kelman

With Blackjazz (Indie Recordings, 2009), the transformation of Norway's Shining from metal-tinged jazz fusion into something, well, other was complete. An ear-shattering combination of death metal/grindcore growls, crunching guitars, John Bonham-style drums reinvented for the new millennium, outrageous virtuosity and progressive rock complexities, this brainchild of guitarist/saxophonist/vocalist Jørgen Munkeby--here, as with everyone in the group, referred ...

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.
