The Rempis Percussion Quartet: Cochonnerie

Read "Cochonnerie" reviewed by John Sharpe

An unchanged line up on the eighth release from saxophonist Dave Rempis' Percussion Quartet signals a generous helping of rowdy energy and inspired oratory. As the name implies, the drums loom large with two distinctive practitioners in Tim Daisy on the left and Frank Rosaly on the right well separated in the mix (from information supplied ...

The Rempis Percussion Quartet: Cash And Carry

Read "Cash And Carry" reviewed by John Sharpe

The Rempis Percussion Quartet: Hunter-Gatherers

Read "Hunter-Gatherers" reviewed by Nic Jones

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.
