EUPHORIUM_freakestra: soundz offfe drzk wähuh

Read "soundz offfe drzk wähuh" reviewed by Mark Corroto


The funny thing about DNA is that just when scientists believe it to be the identifiable signature of all living things, along comes CRISPR gene editing. This technology allows an operator to edit the basic genetic material of an organism, much like the music of Oliver Schwerdt's EUPHORIUM_freakestra. We're not talking science fiction here, more like ...

John Sharpe's Best Releases of 2020

Read "John Sharpe's Best Releases of 2020" reviewed by John Sharpe


With so few performance opportunities since March, and musicians in continuing limbo, the continued stream of new releases has been a surprise, but a welcome one. For me, and many others, music has been a source of solace in an otherwise dreadful year. That makes it all the more invidious to pick and choose between honest ...

John Butcher / Thomas Lehn / Matthew Shipp: The Clawed Stone

Read "The Clawed Stone" reviewed by John Sharpe


The unlikely conjunction of American pianist Matthew Shipp, most strongly associated with New York avant jazz, and British saxophonist John Butcher and German electronicist Thomas Lehn, two leading exponents of the European free improvisation scene, works like a dream on The Clawed Stone. It's not a one off. The genesis of this 2017 Paris studio session ...

Jacques Demierre: The Well-Measured Piano

Read "The Well-Measured Piano" reviewed by John Eyles


Pianist Jacques Demierre's 2019 must be judged a success because of the release of Willisau (Jazzwerkstatt, 2019) by his new quartet—alongside trio members Urs Leimgruber and Barre Phillips plus new member Thomas Lehn—as well as his first duo album Incunabulum (Herbal Records, 2019) with Hans Koch. By comparison, his solo recording The Well-Measured Piano rather slipped ...

John Butcher

Read "John Butcher" reviewed by John Eyles


In the Building a Jazz Library article on Evan Parker, it says that seasoned Parker followers would describe him as the finest improvising saxophonist of his generation. Curiously, many of those same people would use exactly that phrase about John Butcher. The simple explanation for this apparent contradiction is that we are talking about two generations; ...

John Butcher, Thomas Lehn, Matthew Shipp: Tangle

Read "Tangle" reviewed by John Eyles


Recorded at Café Oto in February 2014, on the first night of pianist Matthew Shipp's three-day residency at the venue, Tangle is the first recording of the trio of saxophonist John Butcher and synthesiser player Thomas Lehn with Shipp. (The YouTube clip, below, was filmed on the night in question.) Typically, there were previous links between ...

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!
