¡Golpe!, Josephine Davies & Ken Field

Read "¡Golpe!, Josephine Davies & Ken Field" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

Threesomes! If that's your thing, go for it, but in jazz there's no doubt of the dominance of trios as a common format. Four outstanding trios highlight this edition of OMJ: Portugal's explorative duo ¡Golpe! adds the outstanding bassist Masa Kamaguchi for its excellent new release, Totem, while two others maintain what's working: Bill Frisell with ...

Bill Frisell: Valentine

Read "Valentine" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Pur confermando in pieno l'identità stilistica del chitarrista, il nuovo disco di Bill Frisell si rivela sottilmente imprevedibile: spiazza forse un po' l'ascoltatore ma lo coinvolge intensamente nella mente e nel cuore. Pubblicato il 14 agosto dalla Blue Note, Valentine è la prima incisione ufficiale del trio con Thomas Morgan e Rudy ...

Rudy Royston: Little Steps, Big Pictures

Read "Rudy Royston: Little Steps, Big Pictures" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Everybody needs a helping hand now and then. Rudy Royston understands that. The Covid-19 pandemic has caused gigs to completely dry up for all musicians, and with that, their main income stream.

Jim Black Trio: Reckon

Read "Reckon" reviewed by John Sharpe

The piano trio field is a big one, even that corner reserved for the evenly poised triumvirate heirs to Bill Evans. But drummer Jim Black's unit carves out its own distinctive acre. On the fourth album since its inception in 2011 the threesome, completed by NYC-based, Austrian-born pianist Elias Stemeseder and bassist Thomas Morgan, has reached ...

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.
