Rinascita a Chicago: le gemme dell’etichetta International Anthem

Read "Rinascita a Chicago: le gemme dell’etichetta International Anthem" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


Non è casuale che l'etichetta indipendente più innovativa nell'attuale panorama jazzistico (e non solo) sia nata e operi a Chicago. È noto infatti che la metropoli dell'Illinois è una delle capitali del jazz, avendo svolto un ruolo centrale in tutta la storia musicale afro-americana, talvolta paritetico con quello di New York. Nel 2014 ...

Dave Rempis: Stringers & Struts

Read "Stringers & Struts" reviewed by John Sharpe


Chicago-based reedman Dave Rempis has hit such a peak of consistency that the number of stars awarded to any particular outing is more down to personal preference than any variation in quality. He's in control of his own destiny as most of his output flows from his own Aerophonic imprint. And he's achieved another high point ...

Jeff Parker: Slight Freedom

Read "Slight Freedom" reviewed by Dave Wayne


One is tempted to think of Jeff Parker as the first guitar anti-hero. He's a subtle player, first and foremost, not given to showy pyrotechnics and rapid-fire flights of plectral fancy. His chameleonic, almost self-effacing, presence on recordings by Tortoise, Joey DeFrancesco, Isotope 217, Fred Anderson, the Brian Blade Fellowship, Peter Erskine, Nicole Mitchell, Yo La ...

Things We Like: Ottobre 2016

Read "Things We Like: Ottobre 2016" reviewed by AAJ Staff


Finito il mese di ottobre, riprendiamo la vecchia rubrica “Things We Like," dove, un po' per passione e un po' per gioco, descriviamo le cose (musicali e non) che ci rimarranno impresse del mese appena trascorso. Alberto Bazzurro Ottobre, mese pre-referendario per eccellenza (non quel referendum...), si porta generalmente appresso una caterva ...

Greg Ward & 10 Tongues: Touch My Beloved's Thought

Read "Touch My Beloved's Thought" reviewed by Vic Albani


Tanti ma tanti anni fa, di passaggio da quelle parti per un giro chicagoano, mi domandai cosa cavolo potesse lasciare ai posteri un posto come Peoria (capitale dell'omonima contea) a parte un celebre discorso di Abramo Lincoln del 1864 sulla schiavitù e i diritti del popolo nero, l'aver dato i natali a un paio di discreti ...

Tortoise: The Catastrophist

Read "The Catastrophist" reviewed by Enrico Bettinello


Tornano i Tortoise e subito gli affezionati della prima ora iniziano a sudare freddo. Non è infatti che i lavori del gruppo di Chicago prodotti nel nuovo millennio avessero convinto troppo, impelagati in una terra prog-fusion in cui si stentava a rintracciare l'urgenza dei primi, fantastici dischi. Sebbene infatti, anche in ...

Peripheral Vision: Sheer Tyranny Of Will

Read "Sheer Tyranny Of Will" reviewed by Dave Wayne


One must wonder what chance a group of relatively unknown Canadian jazz musicians playing complicated original tunes has for any sort of recognition or commercial success in the US. If musical quality was the sole determinant, Peripheral Vision, the relatively unknown Canadian band in question, would be celebrities, set for life. They've unleashed a corker of ...

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!
