James Brandon Lewis: Jesup Wagon

Read "Jesup Wagon" reviewed by Mark Corroto


Most listeners have long since moved saxophonist James Brandon Lewis from the rising star category to one labeled virtuoso. But then, pianist Matthew Shipp signaled this status when he mentored Lewis early on and certainly bassist William Parker ordained his arrival by recording with the saxophonist on his major label debut, Divine Travels (Okeh, 2014). Parker ...

Ivo Perelman Trio: Garden Of Jewels

Read "Garden Of Jewels" reviewed by Jerome Wilson


Garden of Jewels is an apt title for this CD. It contains music that is luminous and multifaceted like a jewel, sparkling from many different angles. The musicians here, saxophonist Ivo Perelman, pianist Matthew Shipp and drummer Whit Dickey all developed individual sounds out of the musical freedom principles pioneered in the Sixties, and have played ...

James Brandon Lewis & Red Lily Quintet: Jesup Wagon

Read "Jesup Wagon" reviewed by Vic Albani


Erano anni che il jazz attendeva un lavoro come questo. Splendido nella totale sua interezza, capace di riportare “il jazz nel jazz" dopo tanti anni e tante nuove incisioni che i critici hanno valutato con attenzione e spesso incensate come lo sforzo creativo del guardare avanti, pur “rimanendo nobilmente avvinghiati alla tradizione" e via di conserva. ...

Matthew Shipp: The Piano Equation

Read "The Piano Equation" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala


È difficile non riconoscere fin dalle prime battute lo stile pianistico di Matthew Shipp: l'articolazione del tocco che combina geometrie complesse, dure, spigolose, e volate leggere, quasi noncuranti su alcuni passaggi; l'indugiare sulle sonorità scure di certi accordi e cluster; il soffermarsi su motivi ostinati, liberandosi di essi attraverso virate repentine di atmosfera; i contrasti dinamici. ...

Ivo Perelman Trio: Garden Of Jewels

Read "Garden Of Jewels" reviewed by Mark Corroto


The subtitle of the Ivo Perelman Trio's Garden Of Jewels should be The Pandemic Session. Recorded on June 17, 2020 in the midst of a pandemic when clubs and restaurants were shuttered and “six feet apart" was the clarion call of the moment, the music is a chronicle of the times. At least, that is the ...

Whit Dickey Trio: Expanding Light

Read "Expanding Light" reviewed by Glenn Astarita


Highly respected, longtime New York City-based drummer Whit Dickey, frequent collaborator, and laudable alto saxophonist Rob Brown and young bassist Brandon Lopez consummate this trio's debut recording. As most would surmise, the musicians explore and refresh the peripheries of free jazz improvisation. Dickey and Brown's involvement with the always fertile NY improv scene is ...

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!
