Mara Rosenbloom, Darius Jones, Brian Drye: Brooklyn Artist Snapshot

To even the casual observer, Brooklyn has incubated an extraordinary new generation of talented jazz artists. While the Borough is certainly renowned for a vibrant jazz community, and indeed has been since the mid-twentieth century, this latest cohort of artists is nevertheless worthy of a particular spotlight, not only for being a gathering of tremendous performers ...

Tyft: Smell the Difference

Read "Smell the Difference" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

A dispetto dell'apparente vena rock non lontana da contenuti espressamente metal, le composizioni del chitarrista islandese Hilmar Jensson non si limitano a mere costruzioni matematiche, dalle distorsioni granitiche e dalle ritmiche squadrate. Due forze infatti lottano e si contrappongono in questo terzo album della band: batteria, chitarra da una parte, e trio di fiati dall'altra. La ...

One can only imagine what Hilmar Jensson has done for Iceland's jazz scene when, in our very own Park Slope, his Tyft trio has created a mélange of free jazz, rock and noise.

Hilmar Jensson: Tyft

Read "Tyft" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Once the line that demarcates musical genres has been erased, there ain’t no returning to the farm. Paris (or a virtual Paris) has been seen, and one can never be the same.

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.
