SN Trio: Free Wyoming

Read "Free Wyoming" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

There is a lot of movie going on: The night boatman at the moors, fifty foot ants, a crisis in chaos, gulls, babies, dark climes, eccentric mimes . . . Whatever you can fancy while listening to the unruly codes of saxophonist Sam Newsome and his equally idiosyncratic, first-time rhythm section of bassist Matt Smiley and ...

Christian Tamburr: The Awakening (Sounds For Sculpture)

Read "The Awakening (Sounds For Sculpture)" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

For vibraphonist Christian Tamburr, a walk through the Grounds For Sculpture in Hamilton, New Jersey offered a world of sonic possibilities reflected in the bounties of natures and the wonders of Seward Johnson's craftsmanship. Creating physical splendor and a touch of the unexpected in statuary, Johnson, world-renowned for his bronze sculptures, aimed for his work to ...

Amanda Gardier: Flyover Country

Read "Flyover Country" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Saxophonist Amanda Gardier's sophomore recording, Flyover Country, opens with her original, “Midwestern Gothic," a tune which shifts between serene reveries and pronouncements so bold they could fit--switch out the acoustic rhythm section and the saxophone for some muscular, loud electric guitars--into an in-you-face heavy metal band. A fine way to open the show. Gardier ...

Gordon Grdina: Safar-E-Daroon

Read "Safar-E-Daroon" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

Safar e Daroon germinates from its dark, submerged interiors immediately and immediately brings you into the light. But a light of what? A lover's lamp? A hushed arena? An Australian wildfire? Take your pick and let your mind go. It's all going to happen and does so in spades on oudist Gordon Grdina's second go-round with ...

Orkestra Eustoria: HyperGiant Hi-Fi

Read "HyperGiant Hi-Fi" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Bringing together an international assortment of forward-thinkers, Peter Sparacino looks far and wide with the music he presents on the debut from Orkestra Eustoria. Dealing with cellular-level ideals and astronomical designs, both of which can be gleaned from the album cover, this New York-based saxophonist finds himself in front of a powerful pack that can stop ...

Marc Copland: And I Love Her

Read "And I Love Her" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

Perhaps you glance quickly at the song titles on the back cover and haphazardly say to yourself or your phone or your new imaginary friend “What?!"Afro-Blue" again?" and just as haphazardly put the disc down and move on to Billie Eilish. But, if you take a moment-you'll-never-get-back to pause and listen, you'll hear drummer Joey Baron ...

Marc Copland: And I Love Her

Read "And I Love Her" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

In any discussion concerning the best of the modern piano trios in jazz, Marc Copland's name has to come up. Pianist Copland--who, oddly, began his jazz career as a saxophonist--shuffles trio mates often, having employed bassist Gary Peacock and drummer Paul Motian, and drummer Jochen Rueckert, and drummer Bill Stewart and bassist Drew Gress, in a ...

The Doggy Cats: Daikon Pizza

Read "Daikon Pizza" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

Daikon Pizza from pianist Tetsuro Hoshi and The Doggy Cats may never be anyone's idea of essential listening or on anyone's best-of list of desert island must-haves. It might not even sell north, south, east or west of Sunny's Bar, the band's main performance space, in Red Hook, Brooklyn. For jazz-phobic pet lovers and ...

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.
