Phillip Johnston: Back From Down Under

Read "Phillip Johnston: Back From Down Under" reviewed by Ken Dryden

IntroductionPhillip Johnston is best known to many jazz fans as co-founder of The Microscopic Septet, though the saxophonist and composer has led many groups of his own and co-led others, including Big Trouble, The Transparent Quartet, Fast 'N' Bulbous and The Spokes. In addition, Johnston has composed and performed numerous soundtracks for both silent and modern ...


Mostly Other People Do the Killing: Loafer's Hollow

Read "Loafer's Hollow" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

The expanded, septet version of Mostly Other People Do The Killing takes on more pre-bebop era jazz. The previous septet outing Red Hot (Hot Cup, 2013) had focused on jazz and blues recordings of the 1920s -30s; this one adds the music of the swing era to the mix. One of the defining changes in the ...


Mick Rossi: 160

Read "160" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Nato come commento musicale al documentario “Albi's Oboe" di Matt Dine, 160 (è la frequenza utilizzata nella registrazione del disco) -come talvolta accade in casi del genere, si svincola dalla sua funzione originale per trasformarsi in opera che vive di vita propria, autonoma e originale. Mick Rossi suona, oltre agli usuali pianoforte e batteria, una serie ...


Steven Bernstein, Paolo Fresu, Gianluca Petrella, Marcus Rojas: Brass Bang!

Read "Brass Bang!" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

All'inizio c'è la voce di Steve Bernstein che su un sottofondo di fanfara snocciola una sequenza di frasi in italiano maccheronico, da turista fai da te, poi irrompe Duke Ellington, la sua “Black and Tan Fantasy" ha pienezza orchestrale, colori vividi e sorprendente delicatezza. Anche i Rolling Stones? Così parrebbe perché l'inconfondibile melodia di “As Tears ...


Nice Jazz Festival 2014

Read "Nice Jazz Festival 2014" reviewed by Emilio Palanti

Nizza--Francia 8-12.07.2014 Quest'anno, guardando il cartellone del Festival Jazz di Nizza, a prima vista si lamentava l'assenza di vere e proprie superstar, com'era accaduto nelle edizioni precedenti, ma a rassegna finita possiamo dire che non son mancate le piacevoli sorprese. Sia ben chiaro, molti nomi di prima grandezza erano presenti, ma forse ...


Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey: Race Riot Suite

Read "Race Riot Suite" reviewed by Doug Collette

Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey's Race Riot Suite is a reminder how adventurous the group has always been since its inception in 1994--never more so, perhaps, than in its latest incarnation, in place beginning in 2010. Four intervals, labeled “Prayers," are interspersed throughout the seven formally labeled tracks and allow JFJO to demonstrate its own ...


Search and Restore Benefit: A Round Robin of Duo Improvisations

Read "Search and Restore Benefit: A Round Robin of Duo Improvisations" reviewed by Daniel Lehner

There's an old conundrum about a man with an axe. He broke the head chopping at a particularly stubborn branch and replaced it. Months later, he broke the handle and replaced that. The question goes: Does he have the same axe? It's a philosophical question that deals with how parts interrelate with a whole. Now imagine ...

Bobby Previte & The New Bump: Set the Alarm for Monday

Read "Set the Alarm for Monday" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Staffilate da soundtrack noir (in grado di richiamare alla mente Lalo Schifrin o Leroy Holmes), l’ineffabile ammiccamento notturno alla Lounge Lizard e un andamento decisamente newyorkese, sono gli estremi di questa ottima nuova uscita dell’instancabile Bobby Previte. In questo caso è alle prese con una serie di proprie eccellenti composizioni, che già dai titoli tradiscono una ...

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.
