Mike Westbrook Orchestra: Catania

Read "Catania" reviewed by Ian Patterson


A major figure in British jazz since the late 1950s, composer-pianist Mike Westbrook continues to write, perform and record at a rate of knots which would leave contenders half his 83 years on the ropes. Four albums since 2016, including--after a gap of forty years—not one but two solo piano recordings, are testament to the creative ...

Kate Westbrook: GRANITE

GRANITE

Read "GRANITE" reviewed by Duncan Heining


GRANITE is Kate Westbrook's fourth solo album, though saying so seems quite an artificial point given her partnership with husband Mike Westbrook over so many recordings. As he is quick to point out, Kate's texts are crucial to the shaping of compositions and projects. That said, GRANITE is Kate Westbrook's most ambitious record to ...

Mike and Kate Westbrook: The Serpent Hit

Read "Mike and Kate Westbrook: The Serpent Hit" reviewed by Duncan Heining


Mike and Kate Westbrook have a reputation for tackling big subjects--war, European history, life and death and the nature of art and creativity. With The Serpent Hit, they turn their attention to perhaps the grandest subject of them all--the fall from grace and the loss of paradise. This beautifully packaged CD features a gorgeous ...

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!
