Read "chuffDRONE, Treesearch & Mark Segger" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

This episode is a mixed bag of some newer releases and some recent ones definitely worthy of revisiting. The Austrian quintet chuffDrone takes an interesting approach to its highly polished improvisation, while the duo of bassist Rob Clutton and saxophonist Tony Malaby create an album of gems on Offering; it's the kind of personal connection that ...

Improvisation is the core of clarinetist Ben Goldberg's Good Day For Cloud Fishing, and not just the music. His fascination with poet Dean Young's work led to the creation of this album where the trio of Goldberg, Nels Cline and Ron Miles improvised upon a musical sketch that Goldberg wrote based upon one of Young's poems. ...


Spinifex: Soufifex

Read "Soufifex" reviewed by Vitalijus Gailius

The Amsterdam-based sextet Spinifex—well known for their passion to cross stylistic borders, tight irregular structures and robust improvisational eruptions—still continue their journey through different musical traditions.

Esra Dalfidan: Counter Point

Read "Counter Point" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

In questa rinascita del canto femminile in equilibrio tra musica leggera, jazz e altri idiomi, un ruolo significativo lo sta svolgento Esra Dalfidan, 35 anni, nata e cresciuta in Germania da genitori turchi che opera una seducente sintesi tra musiche tradizionali turche e azere in un quadro jazzisticamente cantabile con qualche sfumatura pop.

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.
