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...

Jack Bruce: L'ascension, Olivier Messiaen

William Ellis By

"It's called L'ascension by Olivier Messiaen who was a French composer I have loved for most of my life. Why I love his compositions is he shows that music has always existed.

Humans only stole it.

We borrowed it -but it's in nature. It holds the universe together, ask any skylark or ask any blackbird, they'll tell you."

Jack Bruce: Band on the Wall, Manchester, 24th March, 2011

This One LP appears in tribute to Jack Bruce, who passed away on 25 October, 2014. Read William Ellis' In Memoriam for Jack Bruce.
