The first thing that attracts attention on Elegant Traveler, Jocelyn Gould's debut as a leader, is her guitar's tone. The sound she coaxes from the instrument has a profound effect on the music as a whole, yet it remains intimate, unpretentious and disarming. Whether Gould is playing a melody, improvising, or offering sparse accompaniment, it is ...

The Seth Weaver Big Band: Truth

Read "Truth" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Truth, the debut album by New York-based trombonist / vocalist Seth Weaver, has its ups and downs, most of which involve the leader himself.

AMP Trio: Three

Read "Three" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Terzo album per questo trio codiretto dal giovane pianista Addison Frei, dal contrabbssista Perrine Grace e dal batterista Matt Young, che si suddividono anche la paternità dei brani -solo la chapliniana “Smile" non è originale. La cifra è quella di un jazz moderno dinamico e tutto sommato leggero, piuttosto convenzionale nelle atmosfere e nelle forme espressive, ...

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.
