Duo Baars-Buis: Moods For Roswell

Read "Moods For Roswell" reviewed by Mark Corroto

It is difficult to think of a better way of honoring the memory of trombonist Roswell Rudd than through the music of Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn. Rudd (1935-2017), the eternal avant-gardist, maintained a firm foundation in the jazz tradition. Even when he was working in the New York Art Quartet or collaborating with Archie Shepp ...

Ab Baars Trio: Slate Blue

Read "Slate Blue" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Ab Baars Trio: Slate Blue

Read "Slate Blue" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Nelle sue recentissime risposte al “Questionario di Proust", Ab Baars affermava che il tratto per lui caratteristico della propria musica sia l'essere “allegramente ostinata." L'ascolto di questo Slate Blue, ultimo lavoro del suo trio con Wilbert De Joode e Martin Van Duynhoven dà una buona esemplificazione di tale definizione: nella sua ostinata complessità, infatti, la musica ...

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.
