Hermine Deurloo: Riverbeast

Read "Riverbeast" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

And with Kevin Hays manning the piano, Tony Scherr holding it down on guitar and bass guitar, and Steve Gadd behind the kit, there's no place she can go where a comfortable feel won't follow. The album ...

Bill Frisell: Valentine

Read "Valentine" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


Pur confermando in pieno l'identità stilistica del chitarrista, il nuovo disco di Bill Frisell si rivela sottilmente imprevedibile: spiazza forse un po' l'ascoltatore ma lo coinvolge intensamente nella mente e nel cuore. Pubblicato il 14 agosto dalla Blue Note, Valentine è la prima incisione ufficiale del trio con Thomas Morgan e Rudy ...

Bill Frisell: Valentine

Read "Valentine" reviewed by Ian Patterson


In an extraordinarily varied career Bill Frisell has made just a handful of trio recordings as leader, which is perhaps surprising given how frequently he performs in such a setting. In recent years the Baltimore-born, Denver-raised guitarist has toured two of his most empathetic trios, that with Kenny Wollesen and Tony Scherr and, latterly, with Rudy ...

Read "Chris McQueen: Snarky Guitars, Part 3" reviewed by Mike Jacobs


Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 For our final installment in the Snarky Guitars series, All About Jazz spoke with Chris McQueen. McQueen's inclinations as a player often push him into more textural, integral and rhythmic roles that sometimes leave him the least conspicuous of the “SP Three," but he has done ...

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!
