Dogon and Friends

Read "Dogon and Friends" reviewed by Patrick Burnette

The boys look at three recent releases including a vocal-focused celebration of Canada, a two-hander by composers of children's television soundtracks and a Swedish flutist upset with the political tides of the last few years. After a spirited, if dispiriting, discussion of jazz as “protest music" propers get paid to a pivotal recording of avant-funk-folk jazz ...

Jerome Wilson's Best Releases of 2019

Read "Jerome Wilson's Best Releases of 2019" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

The human voice was the first musical instrument and many of my favorite releases of the past year show how powerful the voice can be, whether the singer is in a choir, part of an instrumental ensemble or leading the band. Of course there were also many purely instrumental releases that were outstanding as well.

Steve Haines: And the Third Floor Orchestra

Read "And the Third Floor Orchestra" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

In the Fifties and Sixties it was very common to have jazz recordings that would feature a vocal or instrumental soloist like Ella Fitzgerald or Stan Getz in front of a full orchestra. That still happens today but nowhere as frequently as it once did. Bassist and composer Steve Haines revives that tradition with an amazing ...

Steve Haines: And the Third Floor Orchestra

Read "And the Third Floor Orchestra" reviewed by Jack Bowers

This is by and large lovely music, to be sure, but to paraphrase a Burger King ad from years gone by, “Where's the jazz?" Aside from a handful of perfunctory solos by soprano saxophonist Chad Eby and pianist Joey Calderazzo, there isn't much here. Instead, composer / arranger Steve Haines and the Third Floor Orchestra canvass ...

The Chad Eby Quartet: The Sweet Shel Suite

Read "The Sweet Shel Suite" reviewed by Nicholas F. Mondello

For those who might not know him from his most famous written works, “The Giving Tree" and “Light in the Attic," or from his music, Johnny Cash's hit, “A Boy Named Sue," poet, cartoonist, playwright and Grammy®-winning musician, Shel Silverstein was about as unique and talented an artist as they come. Ironically, some of his best ...

Chad Eby Quartet: The Sweet Shel Suite

Read "The Sweet Shel Suite" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Reading poet Shel Silverstein's The Giving Tree once again as an adult, it is improbable that one would take away the same message as you did reading the book as a child. The boy in the story grows up playing in the branches of the tree and eating its fruit, eventually cutting the trunk for wood. ...

David Berger Jazz Orchestra Sing Me a Love Song: Harry Warren's Undiscovered Standards Such Sweet Thunder 2010 If composer Harry Warren is remembered at all, it is for such blockbuster hits from the 1940s as “Chattanooga Choo-Choo" (the country's first million-selling record), “I've Got a Gal in Kalamazoo" ...

Chad Eby: Broken Shadows

Read "Broken Shadows" reviewed by Raul d'Gama Rose

On Broken Shadows his wonderful second album, Chad Eby doffs his proverbial hat to the magnificent American music that came before him and in doing so, puts it in the current context. He also goes a step further, adding not only his own vocal-style interpretations of music from Duke Ellington, Charles Mingus, Thad Jones, Ornette Coleman ...

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.
