Alan Wilkinson/Steve Noble/John Coxon/Pat Thomas: The Founder Effect I

Read "The Founder Effect I" reviewed by Mark Corroto

You cannot judge a book by its cover. Maybe, but music fans somehow know that expression doesn't lend itself to album covers (in this case, CD covers). Look at the Blue Note Records covers from the 1960 sixties, Miles Davis' On The Corner (Columbia, 1972), or The Clash's London Calling (Columbia, 1979), and tell me you ...

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, ...

John Butcher & Mark Sanders / Alex Ward & Roger Turner / John Tchicai & Tony Marsh: Treader Duos

Read "Treader Duos" reviewed by John Eyles

These three contrasting reeds/drums duos are a fine record of the concert at which they were recorded, in February 2008 at St Giles-in-the-Fields church, London. Each of the three tracks lasts about twenty five minutes, long enough for the duos to give a good account of themselves. The three tracks give an opportunity to hear some ...

Read "Treader" reviewed by Kurt Gottschalk

The 2001 album Masses was far from the first electronic infusion into jazz. It wasn't even the first time the British duo Spring Heel Jack--known up to that point for more beat-oriented electronica--had worked with acoustic improvisers. But it was a remarkable piece of work--perhaps the first time jazz and electronic music had met on such ...

John Coxon / Wadada Leo Smith: Brooklyn Duos

Read "Brooklyn Duos" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni

John Coxon of the British drum n' bass duo Spring Heel Jack first collaborated with American trumpeter and composer Wadada Leo Smith on the duo's last and most challenging and fully realized effort, The Sweetness of The Water (Thirsty Ear, 2004). This release was recorded a year later in Brooklyn by John Zorn collaborator Jamie Saft.

Evan Parker: Evan Parker with Birds (for Steve Lacy)

Read "Evan Parker with Birds (for Steve Lacy)" reviewed by Rex  Butters

Someone recently told me that they didn't care for outside music, because to really hear what's going on, you have to stop everything and sit inside it. On Evan Parker with Birds, the sax sounder invites you to sit inside an interdimensional aviary while he joins the conversation around him. Indispensable to those conversations, the duo ...

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.
