Adam O'Farrill

https://musicians.allaboutjazz.com/musician_edit.php?id=52128#generalAdam O'Farrill was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. Born to a deep musical legacy- his grandfather, the legendary Afro-Cuban composer/arranger, Chico O'Farrill, his father, the GRAMMY award-winning pianist/composer/activist Arturo O'Farrill, and his mother, pianist and educator Alison Deane- O'Farrill has been surrounded by music since he was very young. He began studying piano at age 6, and trumpet at age 8, while starting to compose around the same time. Since then, O'Farrill has made numerous artistic accomplishments. With his brother, Zack, a drummer/composer, they released two well-received albums under the O'Farrill Brothers Band: Giant Peach (2011) and Sensing Flight (2013), both on ZOHO Music

Webber / Morris Big Band: Both Are True

Read "Both Are True" reviewed by John Sharpe

On Both Are True Canadian composers and reed players Anna Webber and Angela Morris reimagine the language of the big band. They extend the tradition through adventurous arrangements spiced with the unpredictability of improv, by co-opting the nimbleness of a much smaller group, and reveling in non-standard techniques. Webber has already garnered plaudits for the work ...

Kevin Sun: The Sustain of Memory

Read "The Sustain of Memory" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Ambition is good. Saxophonist Kevin Sun has it. He proves it by releasing--before attaining his thirtieth birthday--The Sustain of Memory, a cinematic two-disc set of atmospheric avant-garde music in trio, quartet and quintet settings, which maintains a start-to-finish focus of an expansive artistic vision. “I've always been drawn to sprawling, encyclopedic or maximalist works ...

Troy Dostert's Best Releases of 2019

Read "Troy Dostert's Best Releases of 2019" reviewed by Troy Dostert

Is it jazz? Perhaps not in the narrowest sense, but each of the releases below arguably retains enough of a foothold in the tradition to justify that description. Maybe we've finally reached the point where the question no longer matters. In any case, what these artists have in common is a commitment to venturing outward in ...

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.
