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 ...

Insalata d'ance dal duo al quartetto: Gebhard Ullmann e dintorni

Read "Insalata d'ance dal duo al quartetto: Gebhard Ullmann e dintorni" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

La partenza di questa nostra odierna circumnavigazione, che di primo acchito potrà anche apparire stravagante ma le cui motivazioni confidiamo appariranno poi piuttosto chiare, ha un nome e un cognome: Gebhard Ullmann, notevole sassofonista e clarinettista tedesco di cui ci occupiamo sempre volentieri. Nella fattispecie, lo troviamo coinvolto in tre recenti album (in un caso come ...

Urs Leimgruber - Alex Huber: Lightnings

Read "Lightnings" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Wide Ear Records is a nascent Swiss experimental jazz label, co- founded by drummer Alex Huber who performs here, in a duo setting with his fellow countryman and eminent improviser, saxophonist Urs Leimgruber. Hence, the musicians generate some cerebral merry-making on this set via the saxophonist's gyrating and stunted battle cries and the customary call and ...

Christy Doran: New Bag, New Tricks

Read "Christy Doran: New Bag, New Tricks" reviewed by Ian Patterson

The opening concert at the 14th Bray Jazz Festival in May, just half an hour outside Dublin in County Wicklow, was something of a homecoming gig for Irish guitarist Christy Doran and his quartet New Bag. Doran was born 63 years ago, just a few short miles down the road from Bray, in Greystones, though at ...

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.
