Read "Borealis 2020" reviewed by Martin Longley

Borealis Bergen, Norway March 6-8, 2020 Borealis means 'northern,' so we must be in Norway, for this festival of experimental music, which has been running in rainy Bergen since 2004. Even though, perhaps, the foundational musical forms of this long weekender lie in the moderne, compositional, new music zone, the ...

Hymn: Silence, Then Birds

Read "Silence, Then Birds" reviewed by John Sharpe

Under the moniker Hymn, the British threesome of trumpeter Chris Dowding, violinist Sylvia Hallett and electronicist David Ross present extemporized slices of understated minimalism distinguished by aching melodies emerging from a granular scratchy undertow.

Sylvia Hallett: White Fog

Read "White Fog" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Multi-instrumentalist, Sylvia Hallett turns to the bicycle wheel as a means of musical expressionism on this recording also featuring the artist’s utilization of digital delays, voice improvisation, and violin. Ms. Hallett’s resume includes involvement with the “London Musicians Collective,” British free jazz pioneers, saxophonist Lol Coxhill, vocalist Phil Minton and others, yet here she pursues shifting ...

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.
