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 Ludovico Granvassu

Ludovico Granvassu By

Sign in to view read count
Che anno! La musica di alta qualità continua ad arrivare inarrestabile. La preparazione di questa lista è stata quasi dolorosa per la scelta crudele di limitare il numero dei CD a 12 e quello dei concerti a 10. Ma tant'è. Questi saranno CD e concerti che rimarranno per me indelebilmente legati al 2016, con una menzione d'onore particolare per le sorprese inaspettate, quale lo splendido disco di Brahja Waldman, lo spiazzante album di Koh, il sontuoso progetto di Nels Cline e l'inaspettato ritorno dei A Tribe Called Quest. Tra le esperienze dal vivo un pareggio tra il viaggio nostalgico nel progetto di Hal Willner dedicato a Nino Rota, l'esplosiva Michael Leonhart Orchestra e la scoperta, per me, della cantante Krystle Warren.
