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 2017 secondo Luca Canini

Luca Canini By

Un altro anno di ascolti, un altro bilancio da tracciare. Dodici dischi per dodici mesi. Difficile. Difficilissimo. Ma in fondo divertente. E forse anche un po' utile: per chi compila e per chi legge. Un altro anno di ascolti, un altro anno di grande musica. Con Steve Coleman e Craig Taborn davanti a tutti per meriti ampiamente acquisiti: in studio e sul palco. Per il resto c'è davvero di che spaziare: dal Monk riletto in solo da Wadada Leo Smith all'ennesimo gioiello firmato The Necks, dal trio Hear in Now a David Grubbs, Rob Mazurek, Pasquale Mirra e Jeff Parker. Buona lettura. E buon ascolto.
