Simin Tander: Unfading

Read "Unfading" reviewed by Ian Patterson


Simin Tander's evolution has been fascinating to behold since her impressive debut Wagma (Neuklang Records, 2011), which featured pianist Jeroen van Vliet, bassist Cord Heineking and Etienne Nillesen on drums. The German/Afghan singer's whispered gravitas and keening lyricism on jazz-filtered chanson, Latin American balladry and her poetic originals was captivating enough, but her non-syllabic vocal improvisations ...

REKON: REKON

Read "REKON" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan


For jazz fans of a certain age—those who began their appreciation of the music during the '60s—American trumpeter Art Farmer's To Sweden With Love (Atlantic, 1964) may have served as an introduction to Scandinavian cool.

Norvald Dahl with Colin Stranahan: The Vision

Read "The Vision" reviewed by Troy Dostert


Norwegian newcomer Norvald Dahl has cultivated his expansive approach to jazz piano since his 2018 debut, Organic Chamber (AMP Music), a trio outing which included saxophonist Jon Irabagon and bassist Mats Eilertsen. That free-spirited release revealed a deeply iconoclastic spirit in Dahl, someone who is as comfortable teasing the contours of a pop-inflected tune as he ...

Read "Dorothy & George Jacob: Putting Bray On The Jazz Map" reviewed by Ian Patterson


Twenty years is old for a car and really old for a dog, but in jazz festival terms twenty years is perhaps not so long in the tooth. For a jazz festival twenty years means established, with the major storms of the early years weathered, a brand that people recognize and a heap of good will ...

Read "Mai Jazz 2014" reviewed by John Kelman


Mai Jazz 2014 Stavanger, Norway May 6-11, 2014 After visiting Norway as often as four or five times annually, a first trip to the country in early May is surprisingly late for a first visit of the year. The last time visiting the west coast city of Stavanger was in 2008, part ...

Scenes: ...but not heard

Read "...but not heard" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

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!
