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...


Il meglio del 2016 secondo Luca Vitali

Luca Vitali By

Un 2016 iniziato sotto la stella nera di Bowie e la sua dipartita inimmaginabile e, verrebbe da dire, teatrale... come sempre. Blackstar per mille ragioni è il mio disco dell'anno, ma l'uomo che cadde sulla Terra è tornato su Marte e ci guarda da una diversa prospettiva...

Quaggiù, è stata un'annata niente male che ci ha regalato produzioni europee, ma non solo, di qualità. Tra di esse il meglio è arrivato da scelte di campo decise, soprattutto quando all'insegna di sconfinamenti e interferenze di genere.
