Furthest From "Weather Bird" So Far...

Read "Furthest From "Weather Bird" So Far..." reviewed by Nic Jones

I've taught jazz history classes where I've made use of the Armstrong yardstick. It's a straightforward thing involving no more than comparing and contrasting two Louis Armstrong performances from the 1920s, the latter of which is always “Weather Bird," a duet featuring Armstrong and Earl Hines, on piano. So pitting, say, “Skip the Gutter," from June ...

Wadada Leo Smith: More Than Moments in Time

Read "Wadada Leo Smith: More Than Moments in Time" reviewed by Nic Jones

Trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith has been pursuing his muse for decades now; that pursuit has yielded music as singular as anything out there, as his now abundant discography testifies. The release of Ten Freedom Summers (Cuneiform, 2012) earlier this year amounts to something monumental, however, and not merely because the music pans out across four discs. ...

The Fire, Regardless

Read "The Fire, Regardless" reviewed by Nic Jones

If considered together a couple of recent archival releases (The 100 Club Concert 1979 (Reel Recordings, 2012), by saxophonist Elton Dean's Ninesense and Mike Osborne Trio The Birmingham Concert (Cadillac, 2012), by the Mike Osborne Trio) and one reissue (Wilderness of Glass ((Awake, 2012), by Triton) remind us of how creative improvised music happens, regardless of ...

The Veiled Meanings of Paul Motian

Read "The Veiled Meanings of Paul Motian" reviewed by Nic Jones

While Paul Motian's music could be regarded as amalgam of the predetermined and the free, that tells only a small part of the story. Similarly, arguing that his drumming was a merging of Kenny Clarke and Sunny Murray is no more helpful, even as it hints at the freedom in his work. But at this moment ...

[Editor's Note: For the inaugural installment of his new column, in which he monkeys around on the margins of jazz and improvised music, Nic Jones takes a look at the often overlooked and undervalued multi-instrumentalist, Marion Brown.]Reed player and percussionist Marion Brown's music is a singular thing.

Evan Parker Electro-Acoustic Ensemble: The Moment's Energy

Read "The Moment's Energy" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Tra i progetti di Evan Parker, l'Electro-Acoustic Ensemble riveste un ruolo di crescente centralità come “luogo" di sperimentazione, non solo perché l'organico si va progressivamente allargando - quattordici sono i musicisti coinvolti in questo nuovo disco registrato in occasione del Festival di Huddersfield del novembre 2007 - ma anche per il continuo ridefinirsi del rapporto tra ...

Evan Parker Electro-Acoustic Ensemble: The Moment's Energy

Read "The Moment's Energy" reviewed by John Kelman

Over the course of a dozen years and four albums, British saxophonist Evan Parker's groundbreaking Electro-Acoustic Ensemble has grown in size and scope, from the sextet that released Toward the Margins (ECM, 1997)--and still remains at the core of the group today--to the 11-piece ensemble responsible for The Eleventh Hour (ECM, 2005). Retaining the careful balance ...

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.
