Dear All About Jazz Readers,

If you're familiar with All About Jazz, you know that we've dedicated over two decades to supporting jazz as an art form, and more importantly, the creative musicians who make it. Our enduring commitment has made All About Jazz one of the most culturally important websites of its kind in the world reaching hundreds of thousands of readers every month. However, to expand our offerings and develop new means to foster jazz discovery we need your help.

You can become a sustaining member for a modest $20 and in return, we'll immediately hide those pesky Google ads PLUS deliver exclusive content and provide access to future articles for a full year! This combination will not only improve your AAJ experience, it will allow us to continue to rigorously build on the great work we first started in 1995. Read on to view our project ideas...


Ai Confini tra Sardegna e Jazz 2017

"Ai Confini tra Sardegna e Jazz" is one of the few Italian festivals with a clear artistic vision featuring original programming. In the small village of Sant'Anna Arresi attendees won't find musicians who play the festival circuit, rather ones who present rare projects, commissioned by the festival to match a theme. For the 2017 edition, Artistic Director Basilio Sulis was inspired by the annual report on civil rights published by Amnesty International. The 32nd edition therefore was themed after Max Roach's "We Insist! Freedom Now."

Here are photos from the performances of the Ivory Coast's Dobet Gnahorè with her group, the Sylvie Courvoisier-Kenny Wollesen Duo, "Lean Left" (Andy Moore, Ken Vandermark, Paal Nilssen-Love and Terrie Ex), the Aly Keita-Hamid Drake Duo, Joe Chambers as solo artist and as band leader of "M'Boom Repercussion," the "Summit Quartet" (Mats Gustafsson, Ken Vandermark, Luc Ex, Hamid Drake), Marilyn Mazur with her project "Shamania," the very interesting Duo of Tiziano Tononi-Susie Ibarra with their project "Drums, Gongs & Bamboo," Tyshawn Sorey (winner of the 2017 MacArthur Foundation's Genius Grant), Kassa Overall, the "Liquid Stone" Trio (Michele Uccheddu, Caterina Genta, Emanuele Balia) and the spectacular Burnt Sugar the Arkestra Chamber that celebrated their 30th anniversary with two great performances.

Once again, an outstanding festival in the fantastic setting of South Sardinia.
