My Jazz Story

I love free jazz because I want to be fully responsible for what I do I was first exposed to jazz at 11: Erroll Garner's CONCERT BY THE SEA I met Cecil Taylor, Sirone, Douglas Ewert, Rob Brown, Mat Maneri, Heinz Geisser, Shiro Onuma, Matt Turner, Mathias Rissi, The best show I ever attended was Cecil Taylor's Concert Jazz in Willisau 1975 The first jazz record I bought was Erroll Garner's ENCORES My advice to new listeners: Cecil Taylor's 1990 10 CDs of his Feel Trio Have a look into my recent book "Flow, Gesture, and Spaces in Free Jazz" (2009, Springer, Heidelberg). And listen to my new CD DANCING THE BODY OF TIME (2012, cadence jazz records)

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!
