Uwe Oberg, Joe Fonda, Lucía Martínez: Relight

Read "Relight" reviewed by John Sharpe

The presence of bassist Joe Fonda guarantees an outward bound listen which still has some foothold in conventional tonality. On Relight, he joins a multinational threesome completed by German pianist Uwe Oberg and Berlin-based Spanish drummer Lucía Martínez, which stakes its claim at the confluence of jazz and free improvisation, in a concert from the 2019 ...

Oberg / Mahall / Griener: Lacy Pool_2

Read "Lacy Pool_2" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Pianist Uwe Oberg didn't follow a straight and narrow path when putting together this formidable European trio. There is no bassist, and Rudi Mahall performs solely on clarinets, as most listeners would expect a soprano saxophone to be the mainstay of any band that pays homage to the late, modern-era jazz pioneer Steve Lacy. More importantly, ...

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.

Uwe Oberg, Frank Paul Schubert, Wilbert de Joode, Mark Sanders: Rope

Read "Rope" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Si è soliti definire l'improvvisazione senza rete, nelle sue manifestazioni più alte, come composizione istantanea, in tempo reale. Non è sempre così: ciò accade infatti quando chi abbraccia tale insidiosa pratica, intanto non dimentica mai questo assunto, cioè che trattasi di pratica insidiosa, da condurre con attenzione certosina e costante ascolto reciproco (salvo che l'improvvisatore non ...

Uwe Oberg - Frank Paul Schubert - Wilbert de Joode - Mark Sanders: Rope

Read "Rope" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

These upper-echelon European improvisers offer a grab bag of tasty treats in front of an audience at the Festival Just Music in Wiesbaden, Germany. This 2015 performance consists of three works, but the 35-minute opener “Drifter," is a tour de force amid a macrocosm of delicate phrasings, succinct shadings, ethereal background treatments and scorching, climactically driven ...

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.
