All about the musicians and bands.

All about the musicians and bands.: All about the musicians and bands.
It was an extraordinary week for interviews and live coverage. All About Jazz chatted with NEA Jazz Master Abdullah Ibrahim, London-based saxophonist Trish Clowes, members of the rock, groove, jazz fusion band Waldo's Gift, emerging organist Matthew Whitaker, and we revisited AAJ's favorite physician... Dr. Um, err... Peter Erskine.

Live coverage spanned the globe with Kamasi Washington in Hong Kong, Monty Alexander at The Avalon Theater in Maryland, Ron Carter and many others at the Detroit Jazz Festival, and Rebecca Kilgore with The Harry Allen Quartet at The Jazz Showcase in Chicago.

We also presented a special 3-part feature on the US Military Service Bands (click "more" below).

That's a lotta content... and it's all accessible from the home page. Click the green scroll buttons to load more stories and reviews.
