Autobahn: Of the Tree

Read "Of the Tree" reviewed by Dave Wayne


Not to be confused with the band of the same name from The Big Lebowski (or the similarly-named British indie- rock / emo band, for that matter) this Autobahn is a trio of jolly Canadians who play 21st Century jazz. Not “swinging" jazz in the traditional Blue Note sense, the music of this bass-free trio of ...

Nicole Glover: First Record

Read "First Record" reviewed by Daniel Lehner


If for some reason Portland-native Nicole Glover's First Record ended up being her only one, she would still have made a lasting impact on the jazz world. The 24-year-old saxophonist's debut is an ambitious one that lays a lot on the table and seeks not only to establish her as a capable player, but a voice ...

Samo Salamon Bassless Trio: Little River

Read "Little River" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


To call guitarist Samo Salamon prolific would be something of an understatement. Over the past decade Salamon has released more than fifteen albums, most of which document different cross-cultural trio and quartet explorations. His discography includes albums like Two Hours (Fresh Sound New Talent, 2006), a rhythm-plus-horn date with left-of-center players like tenor saxophonist Tony Malaby ...

Differential Equations: Jeff Platz / Kit Demos / Fabio Delvo / John McLellan

Read "Differential Equations: Jeff Platz / Kit Demos / Fabio Delvo / John McLellan" reviewed by Dave Wayne


Those drawn to free improvised music can attest to the appeal of the style: the constant flow of ideas and the crackling energy of instantaneous musical interactions. When an improvising band is “on," you know it. What you're hearing is the sound of others listening intently and responding in the moment. Heavily dependent on group chemistry, ...

Xiu Xiu: Nina

Read "Nina" reviewed by Mark Corroto


Like a horrendous and gruesome accident you pass on the expressway, listening to the Jamie Stewart's covers of Nina Simone's music is both repulsive and abhorrent, but ultimately impossible to escape. Seems you just have to listen. Stewart and his avant-garde group Xiu Xiu probably have never had their discs filed in ...

Kris Davis: Massive Threads

Read "Massive Threads" reviewed by Mark Corroto


The first five minutes of “Ten Exorcists," the opening track of Massive Threads by pianist Kris Davis, consists of minimalist repetitive percussive playing of her prepared piano. The Steve Reich-like repetition mimics percussive tape-loops that cease, but the momentum endures and lays the foundation for her solo. This solo outing benefits from Davis' classically ...

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!
