Keys and Screws: Some More Jazz

Read "Some More Jazz" reviewed by John Eyles

In Berlin, in June 2010, a trio calling themselves Boom Box recorded the album Jazz (Jazzwerkstatt, 2011) which was released to considerable acclaim; that group comprised Thomas Borgmann on tenor, soprano and sopranino saxophones plus harmonica, Akira Ando on double-bass and Willi Kellers on drums and percussion, each of whom penned two of the album's six ...

Julie Sassoon, Willi Kellers: Waves

Read "Waves" reviewed by John Eyles

Although pianist Julie Sassoon's first recording—the trio Azilut!'s To the Power of Three (Babel)—was released in 2001, the intervening years have not seen a stream of albums from her; in fact, her releases to date can be counted on two hands. However, in Sassoon's case quantity is far less important than the variety and quality of ...

Paul Hubweber, Frank Paul Schubert, Alexander von Schlippenbach, Clayton Thomas, Willi Kellers: Intricacies

Read "Intricacies" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Questo concerto del 24 febbraio 2014 al B-Flat Club di Berlino, vede la luce in un doppio CD dal titolo rappresentativo. I lunghi brani sviluppati dal quintetto evidenziano quell'intreccio di voci che è proprio della musica liberamente improvvisata, che qui si ripropone nelle forme caratteristiche dell'avanguardia europea degli anni settanta. Il quintetto è formato ...

Paul Hubweber / Frank Paul Schubert / Alexander von Schlippenbach / Clayton Thomas / Willi Kellers: Intricacies

Read "Intricacies" reviewed by John Sharpe

As titles go, Intricacies stands as one of the more appropriate. Not so much in the sense of obscurity or being difficult to understand, but rather with reference to the entanglements engendered by the ear stretching five way interplay. Recorded in the German capital's B-Flat club in early 2014 the 2 CD set captures a multi-generational ...

Fabric Trio: Murmurs

Read "Murmurs" reviewed by John Sharpe

While it would be an exaggeration to suggest that there was a house style for the adventurous Lithuanian No Business imprint, the European saxophone trio nonetheless forms a significant strand in its output. Recent winning entries in the format have included sets from the Anglo Polish Riverloam Trio, Thomas Borgmann's excellent US-German unit, and Evan Parker's ...

Boom Box: Jazz

Read "Jazz" reviewed by John Sharpe

Some might think there an element of presumption in titling a CD Jazz, but German saxophonist Thomas Borgmann gets right to the essence in this set by his Boom Box trio, with drummer Willi Kellers and bassist Akira Ando: spontaneous three-way conversations which swing. Borgmann has a back story that takes in iconoclasts such as saxophonists ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
