Faun and a Pan Flute: Traffic

Read "Traffic" reviewed by Dave Wayne

jny: Atlanta, the home of OutKast, CeeLo Green, Usher, and really the whole “Dirty South" hip hop thing, is not a place normally associated with bands that play super-complex all-original instrumental art-rock. So, you may have to pinch yourself when you hear Traffic by Atlanta-based prog-rockers Faun and a Pan Flute. And to be totally frank, ...

Gato Libre: Forever

Read "Forever" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Gato Libre is the most unexpected manifestation of the multifaceted collaboration between trumpeter Natsuki Tamura and pianist Satoko Fujii. This understated quartet of bass, acoustic guitar, trumpet and accordion creates a sound world that is totally unique: serene, atmospheric, and seemingly contrary to the duo's other collaborative musical ventures. Gato Libre's music isn't a fusion or ...

Cuneiform Records: Growing Progressive Music for 27 Years

Univers Zero: Heresie

Read "Heresie" reviewed by Nic Jones

This reissue of Univers Zero's second album serves as a reminder as to how its singular vision--especially with the passing of decades (such a tricky notion, given the nature of the music)--has been upheld with an extraordinary collective force of will. The usual terms apply--as much as anything the group has ever committed ...

Univers Zero: Clivages

Read "Clivages" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Belgian-based chamber-rock pioneer Univers Zero's Clivages is a polytonal and multidimensional sojourn that follows suit with dabs and expansions of its comprehensive discography hearkening back to the late 1970s. The band often aligns dark sensibilities with glimmer, gusto and melodic choruses. “Retour de Foire," serves as a classical interlude among the absorbing, intricate ...

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.
