All About Jazz Album Reviews

Michael Vlatkovich: Mortality (Mon, 29 Jun 2015)
Wow. Where to start? Apropos of its title, Mortality is huge. Vast. Complex. Quixotic. Musically, it's a mega-ambitious work that fuses operatic vocals, several styles of jazz, heavily-scored contemporary classical music and flat-out improvisational wailing in the most appealing ways possible. Inter...

Konstantin Scherbakov: Eroica (Sun, 28 Jun 2015)
Why Konstantin Scherbakov? Why Beethoven? Why ask Why? In the Book of Exodus, when Moses asked God what to call Him, God said, "I AM WHO I AM." Same thing with Scherbakov and Beethoven. Scherbakov is a Beethoven monster who recorded the Liszt transcriptions of the Beethoven Symphonies in the late-19...

Original Post Written By Tyler Allen on Sonicbids BlogA To be honest, I actually don't think some of my clients could have garnered the same publicity, fan interaction, and other successes if it were any time but right here and right now.

5 Skills You Won’t Learn in School, Skill Four: How to Speak the Jazz Language
How to Speak the Jazz Language Imagine that you’ve just stepped off a plane in a foreign country… You grab your suitcase and step onto the soil for the first time and suddenly you’re filled with a sense of excitement and anticipation. What new sights, new sounds, unusual food, and interesting people await you in this strange new place? Your mind races with possibilities and you can barely wait to get out there and start exploring. But after a few days you begin to notice something odd… At each stop on your journey everyday conversation seems to elude you. The sound of laughter fills the air from jokes that you don’t understand, menus at restaurants don’t make any sense, and each interaction with the locals becomes a confusing struggle. Desperately you hold on to the few phrases you’ve hastily learned from your guidebook, but at the end of the day you finally have to admit it – without speaking the language, you’re all alone in a bubble.
