The size of a group means nothing. There's as much fantastic music created by a trio as there is by a big band. This episode of OMJ attempts to prove that with sparkling new music from trios (Jason Robinson, Bruno Raberg & Bob Weiner -a definite must on my faves of 2020 list, Cuban/Polish saxophonist Luis Nubiola, and Rez Abbasi doing Django) to larger groups like Samuel Blaser live at Cornelia Street Café, Fred Lonberg-Holm's Stirrup and Norway's Barrage, to snarly big bands like that of alto saxophonist Andrew D'Angelo's DNA Orchestra. There's plenty more examples, plus a revisit from a seminal album that called for change back in 1994: guitarist Michael Gregory Jackson's Change: A Suite for Nelson Mandela. That message then is as relevant today, and I'm playin' the whole thing.

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!
