Yuri Honing Acoustic Quartet: Bluebeard

Read "Bluebeard" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Since the late 1980s, Dutch saxophonist Yuri Honing has steered a singularly eclectic course, bouncing between straight-ahead jazz, the two-guitar Wired Paradise, rock-cum-electronica, and Franz Schubert. This questing musician has never sat still for long. The mesmeric True (Challenge Records, 2012), however, marked the beginning of a more stripped down, meditative acoustic jazz, an aesthetic further ...

Yuri Honing Acoustic Quartet: Bluebeard

Read "Bluebeard" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

Mournful. That's the adjective that springs to mind when Dutch musician Yuri Honing blows his saxophone on Bluebeard. “Blows" is something of a mis-description though: Honing's considered approach to his instrument is closer to caressing. His sound and approach are mirrored by his bandmates, who are equally adept at such a distinctive form of creativity. The ...

Björk: Jazz Muse & Hyperballadeer

Read "Björk: Jazz Muse & Hyperballadeer" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

If jazz is, as someone put it, the sound of surprise, then it makes complete sense that countless musicians have become enamored with the music of Björk. Like the most innovative jazz musicians, Bjork is a restless artist who tries to continuously reinvent herself, often blending familiar sources in completely unprecedented ways, and deliberately challenging the ...

Joost Lijbaart: Under The Surface

Read "Under The Surface" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Silence frames music--before it sounds and after the final vibration of the last note has died. Often associated with an absence of communication, silence is also revered in certain communal ritual/cultural spaces. Poetic or damning, eerie or calming, silence never leaves us indifferent. Some composers have embraced it to a significant degree as part of the ...

Various Artists: E.S.T. Symphony

Read "E.S.T. Symphony" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Before Esbjorn Svensson's tragic death in 2008 there were clear signs that e.s.t. was hungry to explore new musical terrain; Leucocyte (ACT Records, 2008), the trio's live-in-the-studio improvisation with its metal-jazz thunder, brooding electronics and epic excursions was proof of that. However, five years previously, Svensson, Dan Berglund and Magnus Ostrom had played a handful of ...

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.
