Trio Pipeline: Kakuan Suite

Read "Kakuan Suite" reviewed by Mark Corroto

The concept is simple enough; sandwiched in between two group improvisations is the Kakuan Suite, a series of seven anagram parts (a couple repeated) that make up the ten tracks heard here. Giancarlo Nino Locatelli (Bb and alto clarinet) composed the pieces, based on the movement of his fingers on his instruments' keys, in effect creating ...

The Pandemic Sessions: Duos, Part 1

Read "The Pandemic Sessions: Duos, Part 1" reviewed by Mark Corroto

After the initial shock of the COVID-19 crisis and subsequent lockdown, artists did what artists do. Unable to tour, many musicians created solo projects. Musicians, like other sentient beings though, crave contact, so when some of the most severe restrictions lifted, duos were formed and production returned. These small positive steps (note: some were recorded before ...

KORR: Tombé de la voûte

Read "Tombé de la voûte" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Let's face the truth of free improvisation. It is a hit-and-miss endeavor. Three musicians starting from naught and trying to create something, something from nothing. If the musicians are seasoned, maybe they fall back on clichés and stock phrasings, that approach being the banal equivalent of nothing. When improvisers hit upon something fresh it ...

The Pandemic Sessions: Solos, Part 2

Read "The Pandemic Sessions: Solos, Part 2" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Part 1 | Part 2 The entire world was in lockdown during the COVID-19 crisis, and of course, that included musicians. Unable to tour and record with their various ensembles, many artists prepared solo projects (some recorded before the virus struck). Most of the music is very personal, as if the artists are asking ...

Alberto Braida: In Love with the Moon

Read "In Love with the Moon" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

A diversi anni di distanza dall'ultimo lavoro, Alberto Braida torna a cimentarsi con il piano solo, presentando per We Insist! una sofisticata meditazione in quattro parti, di cui il titolo già svela programmaticamente le atmosfere. I poco meno di tre quarti d'ora di musica sono suddivisi in quattro tracce, due di quindici e due ...

Giancarlo Nino Locatelli: Situations

Read "Situations" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Sperimentatore delle più diverse forme performative, esploratore della musica di Thelonious Monk, maestro supremo del sax soprano, Steve Lacy era anche un grande e singolare compositore ed era solito proporre i propri brani, assieme a quelli di Monk, nelle sue esibizioni in solitudine. Giancarlo “nino" Locatelli, più o meno contemporaneamente alla registrazione di composizioni lacyane con ...

Michele Grossi Blend 3: Lubok

Read "Lubok" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Formazione molto interessante, capitanata dal contrabbassista Andrea Grossi ma di fatto paritetica, Blend 3 è un trio completato dal sax contralto di Manuel Caliumi e dalla chitarra di Michele Bonifati, che dà vita a una musica in equilibrio tra scrittura e improvvisazione a partire da spunti compositivi estremamente sofisticati. Il lavoro si avvia con ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
