Stephen Gauci / Sandy Ewen: Studio Sessions Vol. 6

Read "Studio Sessions Vol. 6" reviewed by John Sharpe

One of reasons label boss and tenor saxophonist Stephen Gauci appreciates performing with Texan guitarist Sandy Ewen so much is that she doesn't play anything which demands a rote response. Ewen forms one quarter of Gauci's regular quartet, which appears on Live At The Bushwick Series (Gaucimusic, 2019) and Studio Sessions Volume 5 (Gaucimusic, 2020), but ...

Morris / Gauci / Lane: Studio Sessions Vol. 3

Read "Studio Sessions Vol. 3" reviewed by John Sharpe

There is a surprise in store on Brooklyn tenor saxophonist Stephen Gauci's Studio Sessions Volume 3. Not only is celebrated erstwhile guitarist and bassist Joe Morris an unexpected face alongside the reedman, but this time out he features on an unfamiliar instrument, seated behind the drum kit for the two lengthy excursions into uncharted territory. However, ...

Mendoza / Anderson / Gauci: Studio Sessions Vol. 4

Read "Studio Sessions Vol. 4" reviewed by John Sharpe

If you want to avoid compromise, then starting your own label appears a sound strategy. That's the road traveled by NYC-native saxophonist Stephen Gauci with his eponymous imprint.

Aron Namenwirth / Daniel Carter / Joe Hertenstein / Zach Swanson: Live At The Bushwick Series

Read "Live At The Bushwick Series" reviewed by John Sharpe

This instalment of the Live At The Bushwick Series offers a communiqué from the front line of free jazz in New York City. It's the sort of below the radar activity which is rarely documented, but nonetheless deserves to be heard. In this particular case, it's also part of an ongoing event, curated by saxophonist and ...

More 2019 Favourites

Read "More 2019 Favourites" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

There's a continued look at 2019 favourites in this edition (the entire first segment, then random thereafter), but some new releases have filtered in as well: drummer Jeff Davis and a great band debut The Fastness, while clarinetist Aaron Novik continues a string of new albums, and one of the premier avant-garde trios--George Graewe, Ernst Reijseger ...

John Sharpe's Best Releases Of 2019

Read "John Sharpe's Best Releases Of 2019" reviewed by John Sharpe

There's sometimes a backlash against picking the year's best albums. Understandably so when it entails pitting one honest artistic endeavour against another. Best to view the selections as a chance to pick up on something that you might otherwise have missed. As a listener I always look forward to the annual year end lists for precisely ...

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.
