The Weave

The Weave is a collection of truly world class Liverpool based Jazz musicians playing a repertoire of warm, melodious and largely friendly home grown tunes. For years now Liverpool has been home to a small but extremely vibrant and healthy Jazz community. There is a deeply rooted, direct, honest and often humorous charm that is the hallmark of Liverpool music across the genres, and this is no less true of the Jazzers. The Weave harnesses these qualities and aims to present them to a national and eventualy international audience.

I am grateful to All About Jazz for their continued loyalty and support for my writing during a difficult year when I learned some things about what David Sylvian called the 'banality of evil' that I'd rather not know. Musically the year in the UK was distorted by the London Jazz Festival in November, with many ...


Nat Birchall: Invocations

Read "Nat Birchall: Invocations" reviewed by Phil Barnes

There is a feeling of a new beginning on this collection from Nat Birchall. Superficially the album is released on Henley-on-Thames' Jazzman records rather than Birchall's own Sound Soul and Spirit records, on which he released the wonderful World Without Form and classic Live in Larissa. More tangibly only Adam Fairhall on piano remains from those ...

Once there was a time when to be an individual meant pursuing self-realisation, working out who you were, how you felt about the world and what you believed for yourself. If that meant that say Thelonious Monk, Sun Ra or Charles Mingus were viewed as eccentrics then too bad, it was just how they were or ...

The Weave: The Weave

Read "The Weave" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

From the perspective of an east of England jazz writer, it can seem like Manchester has the north east's jazz scene to itself, with Liverpool, its near neighbour, putting up little in the way of competition. It's not that Liverpool is un-musical--it is after all the home city of Gerry And The Pacemakers--but its impact on ...

Duration: 4:54

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
