Sometimes a recording catches you by surprise. Such is the case with Swedish bassist Thomas Markusson's Open. Only one of the musicians was familiar, the pianist Naoko Sakata who moved from Japan to Sweden where she could play the kind of music that wasn't popular in Japan. Sakata definitely found the right company. Markusson is a ...

With the formation of his Triptych Myth trio several years ago, Cooper-Moore announced his intention to return to the days of a working group, as opposed to the one-off meetings that dominate the jazz scene. He has also lamented the fact that his handmade string and percussion instruments have left him considered a novelty, rather than ...

Triptych Myth: The Beautiful

Read "The Beautiful" reviewed by AAJ Staff


Abstract music tends to come in one of two varieties: either it's intensely intellectual, using complexity as a means to self-consciously explode stylistic boundaries; or it's a language of the soul, whose means of expression does not easily fit into preformatted norms, and therefore exploration inevitably represents a constant attempt to translate the full range of ...

Triptych Myth: The Beautiful

Read "The Beautiful" reviewed by Michael McCaw


Cooper-Moore is his own man, and in a perfect world, more listeners would revere him.

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
