Bertrand Denzler / Antonin Gerbal: Sbatax

Read "Sbatax" reviewed by Mark Corroto

With six and one-half minutes remaining in this single thirty-eight minute live tenor saxophone/drums recording, an audience member at a club in Berlin begins howling. Listeners to this recording will probably be saying to themselves, “where have you been? I've been shouting encouragement since I pressed play!" It's that kind of record. The two ...

Un Poco Loco: Ornithologie

Read "Ornithologie" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Somewhere Han Bennink is very jealous of the music making of the trio Un Poco Loco. The master of 'New Dutch Swing' hijinks would give his right crash cymbal to perform music in the manner this trio covers Charlie Parker on Ornithologie. The aptly designated Un Poco Loco ('a bit crazy') trio is trombonist Fidel Fourneyron, ...

Read "Zyklus 1" reviewed by Mark Corroto

The third release by the trio Neuköllner Modelle, saxophonist Bertrand Denzler, bassist Joel Grip, and drummer Sven-Åke Johansson, Zyklus 1 might be considered a zen chronicle. The four lengthy tracks reveal the true nature of improvised sound, group interaction, and thus, the essence of meditation. Like meditation, their music is very simple, yet extremely hard to ...

Neukollner Modelle: Sektion 3-7

Read "Sektion 3-7" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Legendary free-jazz pianist Alexander von Schlippenbach joins the core trio Neukollner Modelle for this 2-CD follow-up to Sektion 1-2 (Umlaut, 2016). Here, top-flight European adventurists mold variable jazz vernaculars into a signature modus operandi, propelled by the superb Scandinavian drummer, Sven-Ake Johansson. Moreover, the program poses a mélange of rhythmically charged motifs, fractured voicings, and whirlwind-like ...

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.
