Hey Exit: Arm's Reach (Else 3)

Read "Arm's Reach (Else 3)" reviewed by James Fleming

Writers have been creating worlds for centuries. J.R.R. Tolkien, Stephen King, H.P Lovecraft, they all shaped worlds and mythologies and civilisations out of words. Few musicians, however, have created new worlds out of their music. Kraftwerk's albums and aesthetics form a unique world of Pop Art, industrialism, rhythms and electricity. But it's a world rooted in ...

Drew Schlesinger & David Torn: Summer Synthesis 1978

Read "Summer Synthesis 1978" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

In the summer of 1978 synthesist/keyboardist Drew Schlesinger had assembled a small studio in his apartment in Ithaca, NY and was composing electronic music. When he heard that local guitarist David Torn (then playing in the Zobo Funn Band) had acquired an ARP Avatar guitar synthesizer--one of the first of its kind--he approached him and asked ...

Particle: Accelerator

Read "Accelerator" reviewed by Doug Collette

Contrary to prevailing popular opinion, electr(on)ic keyboards are not just for noodling in ever-so-cheesy, toy-like tones. In the hands of the titular leader of Particle, keyboardist/vocalist Steve Molitz, for instance, those instruments are lethal weapons with which, on the group's first album in fourteen years, he sets out to destroy preconceptions about what righteous creations can ...

Tangerine Dream - Live in America 1992 (2011)

Tangerine Dream—or as they were known, back when I was in school: The guys who did the weird music for the “Risky Business" soundtrack—had gotten significantly less weird by this point. Founding member Edgar Froese is the lone hold over from Tangerine Dream's 1971-77 whoa-man synthesizer-soundscape hey day, a period that also included keyboardist Peter Baumann ...

Tangerine Dream: The Bootmoon Series

Read "Tangerine Dream: The Bootmoon Series" reviewed by John Kelman

Tangerine Dream was always considered to be a trend-setting group, but looking back on their work retrospectively, the full impact of their innovations is more than a little remarkable. Ranging from thumping techno beats to New Age meanderings to pure noise to ambient soundscapes, Tangerine Dream were not the first group to make extensive use of ...

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.
