He has also performed with {{m: Matthew Shipp = 4290}} since 1991 and continues to play and record with {{m: Roy Campbell Jr

Music from new label Tao Forms

Read "Music from new label Tao Forms" reviewed by Bob Osborne

Tao Forms is a new recording label launched in Spring 2020. Drummer—improviser—composer Whit Dickey is both the creative director and executive producer of this fresh endeavour.

Whit Dickey: Morph

Read "Morph" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Two players on Morph, Matthew Shipp and Nate Wooley, hardly need an introduction to those who venture into free jazz or experimental waters. But the leader, free jazz drummer Whit Dickey, is more of an enigma. Though prolific, his credits are more often in a supporting role. Dickey has been working with Shipp for nearly four ...

Whit Dickey, Asher Gamedze, Quin Kirchner, Icepick and More

Read "Whit Dickey, Asher Gamedze, Quin Kirchner, Icepick and More" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

Three albums by drummers highlight this episode. South Africa's Asher Gamedze's Dialectic Soul brings to light the freer, more avant side of contemporary South African jazz (perhaps in a way that the revered Louis Moholo Moholo did over fifty years ago), while drummer Quin Kirchner's latest delves into various rhythms and tributes to favorite musicians. Tying ...

Matthew Shipp: The Piano Equation

Read "The Piano Equation" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Matthew Shipp is like an engineer from another dimension. In three decades of making music, he maintains an inquisitiveness for expanding new dialects and an aptitude for blending composition and exploration. Marking his sixtieth birthday, The Piano Equation reveals the pianist contemplating past experiments if only as a platform for the future; a foundation for yet ...

Whit Dickey: Tao Quartets: Peace Planet & Box of Light

Read "Tao Quartets: Peace Planet & Box of Light" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

Possiamo dire che l'assioma secondo il quale tutti i jazzisti sono sottovalutati, non sia poi così paradossale. Parliamo naturalmente dei musicisti che mettono al primo posto del loro operato il fare artistico e non la realizzazione di un prodotto solo ben accetto sul mercato. Spesso ci troviamo di fronte a musicisti che subiscono tale disattenzione in ...

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.
