A mixed bag of great new sounds. After last year's successful big band outing, Blue Soul, guitarist Dave Stryker is back with his hard-driving, deep grooving B3 organ group on his new recording—Baker's Circle. The Tania Giannouli Trio's unique sounds have been described as Manfred Eicher's dream of a Mediterranean holiday. Tom Swafford and Zachary Swanson deliver a fascinating exploratory free improvisation project. The debut album of Joe Lovano's Trio Tapestry was one of 2019's most talked-about releases. This musical concept is taken to the next level on its amazing second album, Garden of Expression. Japanese pianist/composer Aki Takase fronts a newly formed trio project, Auge, featuring Swiss bassist Christian Weber and German drummer Michael Griener, The ground breaking French label Circum-Disc delivers two great new albums of genre bending jazz.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
