2021 is proving to be the gift that keeps giving for new jazz releases. Curtis Andrews returns after a long break from releasing music to deliver an album which is rich in rhythmic exploration, modal and raga-based melodies, and some truly virtuosic performances. There's also the debut from Martin Frieberg, Dennis Gonzalez Ataraxia Trio's second offering, a new one from Tom Rainey's excellent Obbligato band, and a selection of other new albums which ably demonstrate the wide variety of music available in the World of Jazz.

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
