Featuring the music of Bruno Raberg
Duration: 5:49

Boston-based bassist/composer Bruno Råberg is proud to announce the release of The Prospector, a trio recording featuring Råberg on bass along Allan Chase saxes and Austin McMahon drums. This is Råberg’s eleventh release on his Orbis Music label.

Bruno has collaborated with Austin and Allan for over 10 years in a wide variety of settings and this project that features compositions by all three members along with some free improvisations shows the unique, intimate and creative musical relationship they have developed. The music is personal, evocative and truly original and the result is compelling music that showcases Råberg and his musical companion’s inventiveness, compositional prowess and accomplished solo work.

Featuring the music of ARIELLA
Duration: 4:38

Flush with poetic imagery and musical intimacy, ARIELLA’s recent releases, are a great example of their sonic vision, one with increasing definition of the human condition. Bassist Victor Wooten enthuses, "ARIELLA is one of my all-time favorite bands. I love their music and their live performances. There’s no way to not enjoy them."

House of Ra

Featuring the music of Scenes
Duration: 8:48

In 2000, master guitarist John Stowell met with the 8 year-old Seattle trio of drummer John Bishop, bassist Jeff Johnson & saxophonist Rick Mandyck to record the 2001 release "Scenes." Soon after, Mandyck retired his tenor for health reasons and the remaining trio carried on, recording five more albums and performing widely over these 20 years. Mandyck's participation on this session marks the first time he has entered the studio on tenor since that 2000 recording, creating a moving moment for the others as he brings along not only his singular musical voice, but five compositions to inspire the core trio, opening up new pathways of conversation. Whether traversing the tumbling landscape of Mandyck's "The Reckoning," or sliding into Claudine Francois' beautifully hypnotic title track, the eclectic quartet glides toward a known destination while discovering the course in the moment. There is history to guide their impulse, intuition to find their way. "Considerably absorbing...Dynamically astute and rhythmically sensitive, this is very satisfying music..." —Cadence Magazine.

Majel Connery Live from Berkeley

Featuring the music of Majel Connery
Duration: 17:30

The songs on this set straddle different eras of composition for me. "This Kind of Love" and "Rebeam Me" come out of my 2019 album, Anything Chartreuse, featuring vocoder ballads with lyrics by Brad Balliett. These songs are floaty and atmospheric, and a bit melancholy. "He Had Had Gone" and "I Was Recognizing" are part of a later collaboration with poet Jeff Dolven, whose writing has often served as a muse to me. With these songs, I was beginning to write for drums and taking a more upbeat approach. "Euphoria," my most recent song, was born during quarantine, and helped me find a place of positivity during rough times. "Euphoria" also features buchla tracks (the buchla is a very, very early synthesizer) by my friend James Fowler. Finally, "The Umbrella Man" is a cover of a tune my grandma used to sing to me; it was first written in 1924.

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
