Shades of Colors, a new recording by Slovenian saxophonist Cene Resnik and his Trio Watch for Dogs puts the lie to the belief that there is no beauty in avant-garde or free jazz. There are some sublime moments in this recording as Resnik, Italian bassist Giovanni Maier and Slovenian percussionist Zlatko Kaučič create like master painters, finding little nooks and crannies to leave a pristine phrase, a broken note, or a fragile space. Highly recommended! Two masters of space and subtlety featured on Burning Meditation, a recording from 1974, re-released by NoBusiness Records, Wadada Leo Smith and Sabu Toyozumi are more proof of collective artistic craft. And Finland's Liberty Ship returns with a masterful album of fire, space and breath in this episode of One Man's Jazz.
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.
