MUSICIAN Born:

Mike McCormick

Mike McCormick is an Oslo-based guitarist, laptop performer and composer originally from Yellowknife, Canada. Much of Mike’s creative output is based on autobiographical material and draws from a variety of disciplines, including conceptual and performance art, electroacoustic music, twentieth-century literature, and various notated and improvised music traditions. Besides performing regularly in ad hoc improvising and chamber ensembles, his active projects include the EIDOLON, an improvising algorithmic computer program, the jazz composer’s orchestra OJKOS, the experimental metal band YAWN, and his vivid depictions of human intimacy explored in the Proxemics project. Mike has been fortunate enough to perform in Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Poland, England, France, Belgium, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, India and all across Canada, including performances at the Ultima Oslo Contemporary Music Festival, Copenhagen Jazz Festival, Ottawa International Jazz Festival, and the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.

Mazzarino - Fioravanti - Bagnoli: Songs

Read "Songs" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

In venticinque anni di incisioni da leader questo è appena il terzo album: dall'ultimo lavoro Nostalgia, inciso con Steve Swallow e Adam Nussbaum, lo separano dodici anni e dal primo, I Remember Miles (con Nello Toscano e Paolo Mappa) addirittura sedici. ...

Stefano Pastor: Songs

Read "Songs" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Nell'ormai folta produzione discografica di Stefano Pastor, Songs per molti aspetti si ricollega a Chants edito nel 2009, le cui incisioni, sempre in solo, risalivano prevalentemente al settembre 2006. Tutti i brani di Songs sono stati invece registrati nel corso del 2010, salvo “Duke Ellington's Sound of Love" che appartiene alla medesima seduta del 2006. Nelle ...

Stefano Pastor: Songs

Read "Songs" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni

Bugge Wesseltoft: Songs

Read "Songs" reviewed by John Kelman

After John Scofield released his balladic A Moment's Peace (EmArcy, 2011), the guitarist revealed, in an 2011 All About Jazz interview, that the original plan was to record with Norwegian pianist Bugge Wesseltoft.

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.
