Gold Sparkle Trio with Ken Vandermark: Brooklyn Cantos

Read "Brooklyn Cantos" reviewed by Germein Linares

Maintaining focus in free jazz seems like an oxymoron. By free, obviously, one assumes no rules, no shackles, and no restrictions. This is fine and dandy in theory; in execution, though, some do better than others with this musical autonomy. It might be free all right, but, is it music and, more importantly to us, is ...

Last Days of May: Radiant Black Mind

Read "Radiant Black Mind" reviewed by Derek Taylor

The closest referent for this group that I can think of (and my knowledge of this kind of music is admittedly severely limited) is the Bay-area based Mermen, a group led by another underground guitar icon, Jim Thomas, which traffics in similarly loose-ended paeans to the psychedelic age.

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.
