Light Star Guiding

I conceived this idea, which had been formulating for a considerable amount of time, as an opposition to all the acoustic projects I am currently often based in, and also as a return to my roots - when I started playing, my first group was a very electric, post punk noise-jazz kind of sounding outfit, and I wanted to return some way to this idea but with many more years of experience to draw upon. Composition and Improvisation are parallel in this group and they should both feed each into each other. The use of sustained rhythm as opposed to “jazz” drum patterns, with Bass forms backbone that everything else can hang on. Repetition and trance are as important as melody and harmony as are the use of extreme techniques from both electric guitar and saxophone, but, we never forget about the beauty of music and the ability of great music to transport both band and listeners, this is our primary goal hence our name “Light Star Guiding”. Group members: Ray Dickaty: tenor saxophone; Mikołaj Poncyljusz: guitar; Staszek Czyżewski: double bass; Dominik Mokrzewski: drums.

The Jamie Begian Big Band: Trance

Read "Trance" reviewed by Jack Bowers

I was introduced to Jamie Begian -- and to Begian’s New York-based big band -- last month during the 30th annual conference of the International Association for Jazz Education (IAJE) in Toronto. Jamie also handed me a copy of his first album, Trance, which I must say is more impressive than I found the band to ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
