Will Bernard: Freelance Subversives

Read "Freelance Subversives" reviewed by Doug Collette


A native Californian currently headquartered in Brooklyn, Will Bernard's geographical touchpoints mirror the expanse of solo and collaborative projects to which he's contributed over the course of his career. Just a few of the names appearing in his discography are also indicative of the guitarist's broadly eclectic approach: eccentric singer/composer Tom Waits, drummer extraordinaire Stanton Moore ...

Uno sguardo alla chitarra nel jazz contemporaneo

Read "Uno sguardo alla chitarra nel jazz contemporaneo" reviewed by Mario Calvitti


La chitarra è ormai da decenni uno degli strumenti più popolari e diffusi nel jazz; tanti sono stati, e sono tuttora, gli interpreti di questo strumento, protagonisti di un suo progressivo affrancamento dalle iniziali convenzioni per arrivare a renderlo sempre più libero e trasversale, al servizio di una maggiore e completa espressività del musicista che lo ...

Will Bernard: Just Like Downtown

Read "Just Like Downtown" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


Guitarist Will Bernard has been connected to a number of singular groups and individuals, from the Monk-to-funk outfit known as T.J. Kirk to New Orleans drumming giant Stanton Moore to multi-instrumentalist Peter Apfelbaum's boundary-pushing Hieroglyphics Ensemble, but a common denominator exists in his strongest work with each one: Bernard's best is always rooted in the groove. ...

Charlie Hunter: Public Domain

Read "Public Domain" reviewed by John Kelman


There's no particular insight in the suggestion that most musicians lay their musical lives bare through their recorded work: near-instantaneous, fully formed leaps into greatness for some; more gradual upwards curves for others; and for all, even the occasional misstep. Still, there are times when it seems as though a little discretion would go a long ...

Jazz Is For The Birds: An Aviary In Song

Read "Jazz Is For The Birds: An Aviary In Song" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


In jazz--as in all else in life--different words mean different things to different people. The way we associate words or sounds with meaning is unique to the individual, but certain words tend to draw similar thoughts from within the jazz community. “Bird" is one such word. Whether you're an avant-garde aficionado, a “moldy fig," a modernist ...

The Season Standard: Squeeze Me Ahead of Line

Read "Squeeze Me Ahead of Line" reviewed by John Kelman


Even with the resurgence of progressive rock in the past decade--which made it possible for relatively new groups like D.F.A., Mahogany Frog, Deus ex Machina and Tuner to thrive alongside longer-standing groups like King Crimson, Yes and Univers Zero--it's rare to find a group that's at once so distinctive as to sound like none other, while ...

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!
