Christopher Zuar Orchestra: Musings

Read "Musings" reviewed by Neri Pollastri


Esordio discografico per il ventinovenne newyorchese Christopher Zuar, nato trombettista ma ormai dedito alla composizione e all'arrangiamento, che infatti pratica in questo lavoro che lo vede alla direzione di un'orchestra di diciassette elementi, che arrivano a diciannove in alcune tracce con l'ingresso di percussioni e voce. Il lavoro è tutto sommato convenzionale, tipico di ...

Steve Lehman: Mise en Abîme

Read "Mise en Abîme" reviewed by Hrayr Attarian


Saxophonist Steve Lehman's 12th release as a leader/co-leader and his second one with an octet Mise en Abime is a cohesive work of intriguingly cerebral and dramatic nature.

Steve Coleman: Symbols and Language

Read "Steve Coleman: Symbols and Language" reviewed by Ian Patterson


Saxophonist Steve Coleman's The Mancy of Sound (Pi Recordings, 2011) was one of the records of 2011. Thematically and structurally challenging on the one hand, dynamic and funky on the other, the music's contrasts reflect Coleman's view of the world, in all its complexity and simplicity. Coleman's fierce intellect carries simple logic, wrapped in many-layered waves ...

Steve Coleman and Five Elements: The Mancy of Sound

Read "The Mancy of Sound" reviewed by Ian Patterson


Although alto saxophonist Steve Coleman's conceptual approach to composition has grown increasingly adventurous, high-brow or esoteric, depending on your viewpoint--with lunar phases and the Yoruba of West Africa's philosophical system providing inspiration here--The Mancy of Sound merely represents Coleman's relationship to the world, which is the font of most music of worth.

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!
