However, with Intuit, his debut release as a leader, that should change.

Dave Ballou: The Windup

Read "The Windup" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

Impegnato sia sul versante del jazz che della musica classica e barocca, Dave Ballou sfoggia un timbro pulito e cristallino, un fraseggio impeccabile. Nell'ambito afroamericano il suo lavoro ha spostato volentieri le proprie coordinate, passando dal moderno mainstream allo scandaglio dell'improvvisazione libera e della composizione aperta. Nel periodo a cavallo tra i nostri due secoli, Ballou ...

Dominik Wania, Satoko Fujii, Alistair Spence And More

Read "Dominik Wania, Satoko Fujii, Alistair Spence And More" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

Italian saxophonist Roberto Ottaviano's latest recording is really about love--not so much the romantic kind, but more about the love that jazz musicians and fans have for enduring compositions written by the likes of Charlie Haden, Abdullah Ibrahim, John Coltrane, Dewey Redman and Don Cherry.

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
