Shabaka Hutchings: Black to the Future

Read "Shabaka Hutchings: Black to the Future" reviewed by Chris May


Though he is far too modest to make any such claim himself, most observers agree that saxophonist and clarinetist Shabaka Hutchings is the standard-bearer for the new wave of jazz musicians who have emerged in London since around 2015. Hutchings is a few years older than most of the cohort. He made his debut recording in ...

In Memory of Lou Gare

Read "In Memory of Lou Gare" reviewed by Duncan Heining


Best known for his work with the experimental, avant-garde collective AMM Music, Lou Gare began his career in jazz in the early 1960s, playing in one of Mike Westbrook's early groups. In more recent times, in Devon, he reconnected with Westbrook and became a stalwart member of Westbrook's orchestra and an inspiration to its younger musicians. ...

Mike Westbrook: Paris

Read "Paris" reviewed by Duncan Heining


Listen to any number of Mike Westbrook records and you might want to ask, “Why doesn't he take a solo?" Aside from the occasional piano cadenza, Westbrook seems to prefer to let his compositions do the talking, ably aided by trustworthy musical confederates. Westbrook celebrated his 80th birthday in March 2016 and Paris is ...

Chefa Alonso & Tony Marsh: Goodbye Red Rose (2008/9)

Read "Goodbye Red Rose (2008/9)" reviewed by John Eyles


An air of nostalgia and remembrance pervades this album, starting with its title and cover photograph which portrays the duo of Spanish-born soprano saxophonist Chefa Alonso and Lancaster-born drummer Tony Marsh on stage at The Red Rose in Finsbury Park, north London, on 20th January 2008, during John Russell's long-running monthly improv concert series Mopomoso.

Intervista a Roberto Bellatalla

Read "Intervista a Roberto Bellatalla" reviewed by Daniele Vogrig


Se i concetti di fraternità e universalità da sempre caratterizzano il jazz in tutte le sue forme, senza dubbio e a buon diritto Roberto Bellatalla ne può essere considerato uno dei massimi ambasciatori. Amsterdam, Londra, Johannesburg. Quaranta anni di storia (e di storie), poi il ritorno a casa. Ammesso e non concesso che ...

Howard Riley: Reinventing the Jazz Piano Trio

Read "Howard Riley: Reinventing the Jazz Piano Trio" reviewed by Duncan Heining


Even allowing for journalistic hyperbole, the phrase “reinventing the jazz piano trio" was a doozy. It all seemed a bit “Emperor's new clothes" or, as my late mother used to put it, “new coat and no knickers." For a time in the noughties, British critics variously applied the phrase to Esbjorn Svensson, Brad Mehldau, The Necks, ...

Gianni Mimmo & Alison Blunt: Lasting Ephemerals

Read "Lasting Ephemerals" reviewed by Dave Wayne


To say that someone is a virtuoso on their instrument isn't a statement just about playing ability. Virtuosity implies a deep level of understanding and insight into the way an instrument works, its history, and its sonic capabilities. This knowledge extends to an understanding of the physics of sound production: the minute details of how the ...

The Founder Effect Signals That Treader Is Alive And Well!

Read "The Founder Effect Signals That Treader Is Alive And Well!" reviewed by John Eyles


The Treader label released its first CDs in late 2004. The label's distinctive Frauke Stegmann-designed sleeves, featuring embossed gold pictures of animals on plain backgrounds, made them instantly recognisable and collectable design classics. Rather than singly, the label always put out releases in series of three, the animals of each series sometimes being connected--mammals or birds, ...

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!
