BY DOUG HALL
October 20, 2018

Kyle Nasser The Red Room, Cafe 939 CD release concert Boston, MA October 11, 2018 With an academic background originally in economics and political philosophy, you have to excuse the open mike opportunity jazz saxophonist Kyle Nasser takes to talk a bit about philosophical differences between tonal jazz compositions, counterpoint, harmonic experimentation and the question of original music. He is just a naturally curious human being with a mind that won't be quiet. Fortunately, ......

American Pie

BY JEFF FITZGERALD, GENIUS
October 19, 2018

Recently, Your Own Personal Genius celebrated a birthday. I'm 51 now, though I read on a 56-year-old level. I commemorated the event that way I do every year, with a pizza the size and thickness of a braided area rug and a goodly portion of Samuel Adams's Octoberfest beer. Usually, I make my own pizza at the GeniusDome. I've been tinkering with my recipe for nearly half my life, trying to find just the right combination to make my ideal ......

Hong Kong International Jazz Festival Hong Kong City Hall Theatre; Hong Kong Cultural Centre October 7-13, 2018 “There are so many beautiful players in the world... and so few listeners," announced Jerry Bergonzi somberly from the stage, to a smatter of chuckles. That punchline might be flipped on its head in Hong Kong, where there is no shortage of upmarket bars in the Central district programing at least some semblance of “jazz," but just ......

Jazz On A Summer's Day 60th Anniversary Edition - 1958 Newport Jazz Festival

BY WILLIAM JAMES
October 18, 2018

Jazz on a Summer's Day is one of the greatest concert movies ever made, a timeless record of the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival, with some of the most stunning images of live music ever brought to the cinema screen. Conceived by stills photographer Bert Stern (Vogue magazine, Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn) and brilliantly filmed over three days in August 1958, Jazz on a Summer's Day provided the template for future concert documentaries such as Monterey and Woodstock.

CTI on BGO

CTI on BGO

BY JAKOB BAEKGAARD
October 17, 2018

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times." The echo of Charles Dickens' famous novel A Tale of Two Cities is suitable to describe the climate of jazz when Creed Taylor launched CTI. It was 1970 and acoustic jazz was in crisis. Following the invasion of rock, it had survived by becoming electric, but the question was if jazz didn't get lost in translation? To Taylor the mission was simple. He wanted to bring jazz into ......

Istanbul’s İKSV: An Intensity Beyond Cool

BY ARTHUR R GEORGE
October 17, 2018

It would be easy to get breathless, even giddy, about the range and schedule of cultural events organized by İKSV, the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (in Turkish: İstanbul Kültür Sanat Vakfı). One individual could not possibly keep up with its jazz and classical music festivals and everything else that's offered by İKSV. It brings under one organization something like the variety and aspirations of Lincoln Center in New York, the National Endowment for the Arts, commercial promoter Live ......

Tony Adamo: Was Out Jazz Zone Mad reviewed By Jazz Weekly

BY TONY ADAMO
October 15, 2018

One of the great things about Tony Adamo is that you just can’t peg him down. He’s part vocalist, poet, street preacher, hip uncle, but above all, a jazzer with a grooving heart. On this album, he lays down the jazz laws of life’s observations with the highly funkified team that includes legendary drummer Mike Clark along with Jack Wilkins, Mike LeDonne, Donald Harrison, Tim Ouimette and various other cats who sit in for some snapping beats. Adamo’s voice is ......

Poetry and Jazz: A Chronology

Poetry and Jazz: A Chronology

BY DUNCAN HEINING
October 14, 2018

My intention here is to offer a detailed but inevitably incomplete chronology of poetry and jazz. The focus is solely on the combination of the two art forms in performance, not on poetry about jazz or jazz musicians or poetry inspired by jazz but not performed to music. My definition of 'poetry' is fairly broad and extends to spoken word/text combined with jazz. Hopefully, readers will be able to add to the chronology by contributing further examples of which I ......
