Mathias Eick: Midwest

Read "Mathias Eick: Midwest" reviewed by John Kelman


Having first emerged on ECM Records, garnering significant attention for his work with fellow Norwegian, guitarist Jacob Young (2004's Evening Falls), and Finish pianist/harpist Iro Haarla (2006's Northbound), it seemed only a matter of time before trumpeter Mathias Eick would get the opportunity to start releasing albums of his own for the label. But if the ...

Masqualero: Masqualero

Read "Masqualero: Masqualero" reviewed by John Kelman


MasqualeroMasqualeroOdin1983 Despite plenty of evidence to the contrary, there are still those who think that Norwegian musicians can't play “real jazz" (whatever that is), and that what they do play is something consistently (and erroneously) categorized as “Nordic Cool." Submitted for your approval is today's Rediscovery: the self-titled debut from Masqualero, ...

Arve Henriksen: The Nature of Connections

Read "Arve Henriksen: The Nature of Connections" reviewed by John Kelman

TD Ottawa Jazz FestivalOttawa, CanadaJune 20-July 1, 2013Having made the decision, in 2012, to broaden its stylistic purview to include not only music on the periphery of jazz, but artists with no real connection to the founding raison d'être of the festival, the 2013 TD Ottawa Jazz Festival continued to bring extracurricular music ...

Eyes of a Blue Dog: Rise

Read "Rise" reviewed by John Kelman


As disproportionate as the amount of fine music being made in Norway is to its relatively small population of five million, so, too, is its surprisingly large cadre of outstanding drummers. A quick scan through the list of drummers who have made some kind of name for themselves, both at home and abroad, include--amongst many, many ...

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!
