Paul Rutherford: In Backward Times

Read "In Backward Times" reviewed by Enrico Bettinello


Si parla sempre troppo poco di Paul Rutherford, uno dei maestri assoluti dell'improvvisazione europea, trombonista avventuroso, scomparso nel 2007 a soli 67 anni. Sebbene il suo ruolo fondamentale nell'ambito dei linguaggi più radicali, a partire dagli anni Settanta, non sia mai stato messo in dubbio, è più facile che a essere citati siano Derek Bailey o ...

Spontaneous Music Ensemble: Karyobin

Read "Karyobin" reviewed by John Eyles


Karyōbin is a crucially important album in the history and development of freely improvised music. Originally studio-recorded in February 1968 and issued as an Island Records LP later that year, it was remastered and re-released on CD by Chronoscope in 1993. Fine as the music was, both of those issues suffered from less than ideal sound ...

Glasgow Improvisers Orchestra: GIO Sevens

Read "GIO Sevens" reviewed by Duncan Heining


Back in the 60s, there was a pop show on British TV called Thank Your Lucky Stars. It featured a “spin-a-disc" segment, where a DJ and three teenagers scored a clutch of 45s on a scale of one to five. One of these was a girl from the West Midlands called Janice Nicholls, who delighted audiences ...

Emanem Tidies Up

Read "Emanem Tidies Up" reviewed by John Eyles


As well as releasing contemporary recordings of improv, Martin Davidson's Emanem label has played a vital role in documenting the history of the music by releasing, re-releasing or re-curating recordings that are decades old. In the process, Davidson has sometimes worked tirelessly to improve the sound quality of recordings that were never intended for release, and ...

Julie Tippetts: Didn't You Used To Be Julie Driscoll?

Read "Julie Tippetts: Didn't You Used To Be Julie Driscoll?" reviewed by Duncan Heining


The respect in which Julie Tippetts is held by her fellow musicians and fans is truly heartening--and truly deserved. Back in the late sixties, then Julie Driscoll, she gave up a very different career trajectory in music, one that had begun with Steampacket and continued with Brian Auger & The Trinity, to follow a journey characterised ...

Spontaneous Music Ensemble: Oliv & Familie

Read "Oliv & Familie" reviewed by Vic Albani


Quando ci si trova davanti alla recensione di un disco come questo o si decide per un agile volumetto di una trentina di pagine oppure sarebbe meglio lasciare correre. Dato che però gli amici di All about jazz si arrabbierebbero se propinassi loro una recensione di trenta pagine, scelgo la strada della pillola anche perché potrebbe ...

Spontaneous Music Ensemble: Oliv & Familie

Read "Oliv & Familie" reviewed by John Eyles


Issued twenty years after his death, aged just fifty-four, Oliv & Familie serves as a fitting reminder of the Spontaneous Music Ensemble's charismatic and controversial drummer and leader, John Stevens. Not only does this release return to circulation the two “Oliv" tracks that constituted the SME's eponymous third album, originally issued on vinyl by Giorgio Gomelsky's ...

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!
