Andy Biskin Ibid: Act Necessary

Read "Act Necessary" reviewed by Libero Farnè

Questo CD del nuovo quartetto Ibid, anomalo nel coniugare tre fiati e una batteria, rappresenta l'ultimo approdo dell'onnivoro Andy Biskin, nato in Texas, formatosi alla Yale University e con molte esperienze nel suo bagaglio musicale. Si percepiscono echi del passato nel percorso movimentato di Act Necessary; evidentemente Biskin appartiene a quella schiera di artisti che non ...

Andy Biskin's Ibid: Act Necessary

Read "Act Necessary" reviewed by Dave Wayne

A working jazz musician in New York City and environs since 1991, clarinetist, composer, and filmmaker Andy Biskin is a modern-day Renaissance Man. The Texas native was already a fixture in San Antonio's polka scene (yes, people, this is a thing) as a teenager, Biskin attended Yale where he double-majored in music and anthropology. Later, he ...

Andy Biskin Ibid: Act Necessary

Read "Act Necessary" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Act Necessary is clarinetist-composer Andy Biskin's fifth album, where he integrates the jazz idiom into Americana, slapstick fare, funk and other disparate genres. He's an artist who stands out among his peers as he goes against the grain, while always mingling wit and whimsy into his overall musicality. Biskin's amiable and bubbly clarinet work forges an ...

The Spokes: Not So Fast

Read "Not So Fast" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Composto da tre navigati ed eclettici musicisti dell'area newyorchese, il trio The Spokes fonda il proprio appeal su numerose originali particolarità, la prima delle quali emerge fin dall'organico: tre fiati non frequentemente affiancati, per giunta apparentemente sbilanciati timbricamente, con due ance “alte" accanto a un ottone “basso". Analoga la “tensione" che emerge dalle composizioni, caratterizzate da ...

Edward Ratliff: Those Moments Before

Read "Those Moments Before" reviewed by Troy Collins

The cover of Those Moments Before features a poster of Marlene Dietrich advertising Josef von Sternberg's 1931 film Dishonored. While this album--New York-based multi-instrumentalist Edward Ratliff's third as a leader--isn't a soundtrack like the earlier Barcelona in 48 Hours (Strudelmedia, 2004) was, this date unfolds with the same degree of wild eclecticism and globe-trotting impetuousness as ...

Edward Ratliff: Those Moments Before

Read "Those Moments Before" reviewed by Jerry D'Souza

Multi-instrumentalist Edward Ratliff brings a wide tapestry of sounds to Those Moments Before. His inspiration comes from Henry Threadgill, a funeral march, the tango, and Hong Kong movies, and he has assembled a stellar cast of musicians to help realize his ambitious canvas. The portrait he presents is a dynamic, moving one. Ratliff is ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
