He performed music for film, the most notable being his work with Lol Coxhill on director Derek Jarman's Caravaggio (1986).

Darrifourcq, Hermia & Ceccaldi... and Cheeseburgers

Read "Darrifourcq, Hermia & Ceccaldi... and Cheeseburgers" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

There are some very creative folks hanging about this week, headed by one of the more unique recordings of the year so far—Kaijū Eats Cheeseburgers—by the uncategorizable trio from France led by drummer/percussionist Sylvain Darrifourcq with saxophonist Manuel Hermia and cellist Valentin Ceccaldi. It's very different but very exciting stuff. Also new from Europe and more ...

Read "Ambrose Akinmusire, Omri Zeigele, Adam Caine & More" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

When a highly respected saxophonist like David Binney recommends a young up-and-coming musician, I tend to pay attention. Los Angeles trombonist Logan Kane and his Nonet live up to the tip on his new Nope, Science, one of the featured new releases hitting this week. Also of great interest are albums from the much-admired trumpeter Ambrose ...

Cartoon: Change Of Meaning

Read "Change Of Meaning" reviewed by Roger Farbey

The Confront Recording's Collectors Series is distinguished by the packaging of its CDs which arrive in a DVD sized metal box. Rather than any cover art, there are instead simple stickers affixed to the front and rear denoting the artist, title and track names. The CD itself quaintly replicates the grooves and track markers of a ...

Paul Rutherford: In Backward Times

Read "In Backward Times" reviewed by Enrico Bettinello

Si parla sempre troppo poco di Paul Rutherford, uno dei maestri assoluti dell'improvvisazione europea, trombonista avventuroso, scomparso nel 2007 a soli 67 anni. Sebbene il suo ruolo fondamentale nell'ambito dei linguaggi più radicali, a partire dagli anni Settanta, non sia mai stato messo in dubbio, è più facile che a essere citati siano Derek Bailey o ...

Veryan Weston: Discoveries on Tracker Action Organs

Read "Discoveries on Tracker Action Organs" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Nativo della Cornovaglia (1950) ma trasferitosi a Londra poco più che ventenne (1972), Veryan Weston, generalmente dedito al pianoforte, si rivolge in questo tutto sommato singolare album all'organo a canne, riunendovi sette improvvisazioni di durate anche molto dissimili (dai 2'48" della prima ai 24 dell'ultima) effettuate in sette chiese e sette città diverse nel marzo 2014. ...

Read "Discoveries on Tracker Action Organs" reviewed by John Eyles

This new solo album from keyboardist Veryan Weston was recorded in May 2014 on tracker action organs in seven churches located around England. The recordings here document some of the preparatory research that Weston did ahead of a tour of churches with tracker action organs. That tour involved Weston plus violinist Jon Rose and cellist Hannah ...

Veryan Weston / Jon Rose / Hannah Marshall: Tuning Out

Read "Tuning Out" reviewed by John Eyles

There is a very interesting project awaiting some lucky (and patient) individual, researching the role that churches played in the spread of improvised music in Britain. To clear up any ambiguity, that “churches" refers to the buildings themselves rather than their human members. Any devotee of improvised music in Britain will probably have spent far more ...

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.
