EUPHORIUM_freakestra: soundz offfe drzk wähuh

Read "soundz offfe drzk wähuh" reviewed by Mark Corroto


The funny thing about DNA is that just when scientists believe it to be the identifiable signature of all living things, along comes CRISPR gene editing. This technology allows an operator to edit the basic genetic material of an organism, much like the music of Oliver Schwerdt's EUPHORIUM_freakestra. We're not talking science fiction here, more like ...

OM: It's About Time

Read "It's About Time" reviewed by Ian Patterson


In 1982, after five albums in ten years, Swiss free-jazz quartet OM called it a day--its four members, Christy Doran, Fredy Studer, Urs Leimgruber and Bobby Burri going their separate ways. A supposed one-off reunion in 2007 to open an exhibition on the youth movement of the 1960s and 1970s led to a successful series of ...

Jacques Demierre: The Well-Measured Piano

Read "The Well-Measured Piano" reviewed by John Eyles


Pianist Jacques Demierre's 2019 must be judged a success because of the release of Willisau (Jazzwerkstatt, 2019) by his new quartet—alongside trio members Urs Leimgruber and Barre Phillips plus new member Thomas Lehn—as well as his first duo album Incunabulum (Herbal Records, 2019) with Hans Koch. By comparison, his solo recording The Well-Measured Piano rather slipped ...

Read "Willisau" reviewed by John Eyles


The LDP trio (shorthand for Swiss saxophonist Urs Leimgruber, Swiss pianist Jacques Demierre and American-born bassist Barre Phillips) first came together when they recorded Wing Vane (Les Disques Victo, 2001) which was followed-up with LDP—Cologne (Psi, 2005), an early use of the trio's abbreviated name. Subsequent LDP releases have come every three or four years, all ...

Joëlle Léandre - Urs Leimgruber - Fred Frith - Alvin Curran: Oakland/Lisboa

Read "Oakland/Lisboa" reviewed by John Sharpe


Under the moniker MMM Quartet a crew from diverse points of the compass assembled for a concert at the 2014 Jazz Em Agosto in Lisboa (Lisbon, Portugal). Three of the four principals have associations with Mills College in Oakland (the MMM acronym improbably stands for Mills Music Mafia), while the Swiss saxophonist Urs Leimgruber is the ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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!
