Splashgirl: Field Day Rituals

Read "Field Day Rituals" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

This Scandinavian trio recorded its fourth album in Seattle, WA featuring resident violaist Eyvind Kang and synth performer Timothy Mason lending their wares during various segments. An atmospheric engagement projecting a sense of antiquity, it's often what the musicians don't play that establishes the premise for the artful and rather haunting song-forms executed throughout their cunning ...

In recent years, as ever-increasing numbers of piano-bass-drums trios have appeared on the scene and released their debut albums, it has become a truism that any such group needs to have its own unique selling point to distinguish it from the crowd.

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.
