Beekman: Vol. 2

Read "Vol. 2" reviewed by Luca Muchetti

A oltre un anno di distanza dall'album che segnò l'esordio del collettivo di musicisti, Beekman torna con un Vol. 2 che, nelle tracce di questo ultimo lavoro, prosegue sostanzialmente la linea di quella prima esperienza. Non è una nota di demerito, anzi. Nel jazz uno degli aggettivi più usati e abusati è “cosmopolita," per indicare musica ...

Stream: Second Stream

Read "Second Stream" reviewed by Troy Dostert

It is always a pleasure to hear a working band. Not a one-off meeting, or an all-star project hastily thrown together, both of which often promise more than they deliver--but a genuine team of musicians committed to a shared musical vision, one that can be honed and refined over the long course of a true collaborative ...

Budd Kopman's Best Releases of 2016

Read "Budd Kopman's Best Releases of 2016" reviewed by Budd Kopman

Of the seventy or so albums I was fortunate to review this year (with many still waiting in the wings), the releases below (in chronological order) are those that moved me the most and hence that I remember the clearest, even after a year. The quality of the music is uniformly high, and leaving something off ...

Read "Beekman Vol. 02" reviewed by Budd Kopman

Beekman is a collective quartet with members from all over the world: pianist Yago Vazquez from Spain, saxophonist Kyle Nasser from the U.S., bassist Pablo Menares from Chile and drummer Rodrigo Recabarren also from Chile.

Beekman: Vol. 02

Read "Vol. 02" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Beekman is a super-tight collective quartet whose members hail from three (count 'em) different continents. Pianist Yago Vazquez is from Spain, reedman Kyle Nasser is an American, and the entire rhythm section--bassist Pablo Menares and drummer Rodrigo Recabarren--hails from Chile. Their prosaically-titled sophomore album, Vol. 02, is more-or-less in the same brainy-but-chill modern jazz style as ...

Yago Vazquez/Scott Lee/Jeff Hirshfield: Stream

Read "Stream" reviewed by James Nadal

Every once in a while, a studio recording depicts the spirit and sensitivity of a live club date. Stream, the self-titled release by the trio consisting of pianist Yago Vazquez, bassist Scott Lee, and drummer Jeff Hirshfield, does just that. They perform the repertoire as they have done in the countless clubs where they have taken ...

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.
