Adam Meckler: Magnificent Madness

Read "Magnificent Madness" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Non so se Minneapolis è considerata “provincia" nel vasto territorio statunitense (nel campo del jazz certamente si, rispetto ai poli storici di New York, Los Angeles e Chicago) ma spesso dalla provincia giungono alte prove di creatività. Il trombettista, educatore e bandleader Adam Meckler deve ancora trovare ampi riconoscimenti ma il suo debutto orchestrale del 2014 ...

Adam Meckler Orchestra: When The Clouds Look Like This

Read "When The Clouds Look Like This" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Todd Clouser's A Love Electric: 20th Century Folk Selections

Read "20th Century Folk Selections" reviewed by Mark Corroto

More than rock musicians and more than blues artists, jazz musicians carry the greatest burden of musical legacy. There are not stories about a contemporary rock musician who dedicates his career to mastering The Beatles catalog, or of the one who's playing is paralyzed because she cannot deal with Jimi Hendrix's solos. Nope. Only in jazz ...

Jana Nyberg Group Releases "Fever" at Hell’s Kitchen (Minneapolis), August 20th

It only makes sense that a hot genre-bending jazz/pop band like the Jana Nyberg Group would release a CD titled Fever in Hell's Kitchen! And that's the plan for Saturday night, August 20th, when vocalist Jana Nyberg brings her devilishly smoldering ensemble to downtown Minneapolis after similar celebration in Door County last weekend. Twin Citian Jana ...

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.
