Martin Archer: Another Fantastic Individual

Read "Another Fantastic Individual" reviewed by Matt Parker


This album is perhaps slightly less immediate than some of Martin Archer's other recent releases, such as the eponymous debut album of the Krautrock-esque trio Das Rad, but no less essential and, perhaps, in a sense, more impressive given that it was performed in its entirety by Archer alone. Another Fantastic Individual is a ...

Presenting Problem

Read "Presenting Problem" reviewed by Duncan Heining


Jazz often appears to exist within its own cultural and artistic paradigm, isolated from other arts and in its own discreet musical corner. Worse still from the perspective of those who would hope to make a living from it, it often seems that more people want to play the music than listen to it or, more ...

Avanti o indietro?

Read "Avanti o indietro?" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro


La più o meno contigua uscita di reperti d'epoca di Jarrett, Osborne e Soft Machine ci induce a una disamina a largo raggio su cos'era e verso dove si muoveva il jazz, pur inteso in senso lato, nell'epoca in cui tanti ragazzi provenienti dal rock più o meno progressivo vi confluivano a frotte.

Finalmente, dopo una lunghissima assenza dal mercato discografico quell'incisione viene ristampata in ...

Alan Skidmore / Mike Osbourne / John Surman: SOS

Read "SOS" reviewed by John Eyles


It is wonderful to have this album available for the first time on CD--and scary to realise that it was recorded and released in 1975! It is worth dwelling for a moment on how the (jazz) world has changed in the intervening years. In 1975, the idea of an all-saxophone group was unheard of; the countless ...

The SOS Big Band: Show and Ballroom Live / Sound of Vegas

Read "Show and Ballroom Live / Sound of Vegas" reviewed by Jack Bowers


The SOS (Sound of Swing) Big Band, formed ten years ago by Stefan Nordin and comprised mainly of music teachers and musical hobbyists, is based in Stockholm, Sweden. It’s clear from these two discs, recorded in concert in 1995 ( Ballroom ) and ’97 ( Vegas ), that this is a band that plays to its ...

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!
