Read "Monder-Malaby-Rainey and Mario Rom's Interzone" reviewed by Maurice Hogue


There are more 2020 favourites scattered throughout this playlist (my choices at the One Man's Jazz website), but some excellent new trio and duo releases are highlights. Ben Monder, Tony Malaby and Tom Rainey gathered at one of Monder's residency-sessions at the 55 Bar and the three-part album is split over this show and the next ...

Emanuele Passerini, Jon Irabagon, Sylvain Rifflet and The Warriors Of The Wonderful Sound

Read "Emanuele Passerini, Jon Irabagon, Sylvain Rifflet and The Warriors Of The Wonderful Sound" reviewed by Maurice Hogue


Italian soprano saxophonist Emanuele Passerini says he does not consider himself a professional musician. He has a great job in the private sector, so he records only sporadically. Well, good thing he found the time to record Trio Geometrics with drummer Tiziano Tononi and bassist Tito Mangialajo Rantzer. It's a spectacular album, and a feature of ...

Read "The French Scene - Part 4" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu


In this final installment of our exploration of today's French jazz scene, we focus on a number of projects that illustrate how beautifully French musicians blend their many influences, from troubadour music of the middle-ages to pop songs of the '60s and '70s, and interests, from Greek mythology to the M-Base collective, with jazz.

Sylvain Rifflet: Troubadours

Read "Troubadours" reviewed by Anthony Shaw


Sylvain Rifflet has been playing adventurous, somewhat rock-related jazz for since around 2000, and for much of the time has done so alongside a trumpeter. His emergence on the international scene in the first decade of this century was with the French quintet Rockingchair, where his co-leader was contemporary French trumpeter, Arielle Besson.

Sylvain Rifflet: Troubadours

Read "Troubadours" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


In questo decennio il sassofonista Sylvain Rifflet s'è imposto tra gli emergenti più eclettici del jazz francese con dischi molto apprezzati, come l'audace Mechanics (Jazz Village 2015) e l'orchestrale Refocus (Verve 2017). In quest'ultimo ha voluto affermare la sua filiazione per Stan Getz (di cui rilegge l'album Focus) anche se la vicinanza è solo timbrica e ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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!
