Tributes, pianists, and tributes to pianists are the core of this show, from homages to Paul Jackson by John Patitucci, Ennio Morricone by Stefano di Battista, Alice Coltrane by Il Sogno, and Hasan Ibn Ali by Brian Marsella to available-at-last music by Ali himself and by British pianist Mike Taylor, both as leader and composer for Cream. To top things off we feature the remarkable debut album by New York based Japanese pianist Erika Dohi [pictured] with a track featuring special guests Ambrose Akinmusire and Immanuel Wilkins, Berlin-based Japanese veteran pianist Aki Takase, the spiritual jazz of Wildflower, the unstoppable groove of The Bamboos and a quasi-Morriconean reprise of Moby's hit "Natural Blues" featuring Gregory Porter.

Happy listening!

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!
