Joe Lovano: Birdland, NYC, 21st September 2014

"Well, I would have to say Miles Davis, 'Round About Midnight (Columbia, 1957). I grew up listening to this recording as a kid and the poetic expression -the ensemble playing between John Coltrane and Miles Davis, Red Garland, Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones just captured my attention from an early age.

And of course their solos within each tune were just so masterful you know. But yet, as a quintet, there was a real ensemble sound that gave me a lot of direction through the years."

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
