As does his penchant for the ...

Mike Felten: Fast Mikey Blue Eyes

Read "Fast Mikey Blue Eyes" reviewed by Doug Collette


One reliable measure of a musician's mettle is the extent to which they attract players with notable pedigree to collaborate. Fast Mikey Blue Eyes is a case in point; the legitimacy of both keyboardist-composer Barry Goldberg and harpist Corky Siegel are beyond reproach, so their contributions to guitarist-vocalist-songwriter Mike Felten's sixth album (for his own label) ...

Phat Phunktion: Live at the High Noon

Read "Live at the High Noon" reviewed by Doug Collette


If you have an abiding appetite or innate taste for old school funk a la Tower of Power, then Phat Phunktion is right in your wheelhouse.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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!
