Alexander Zonjic’s musical life is proof that one’s true destiny isn’t always revealed the minute a youngster picks up his first instrument.

Alexander Zonjic: Seldom Blues

Read "Seldom Blues" reviewed by Woodrow Wilkins

It features brothers Kirk and Kevin Whalum, Angela Bofill and Earl Klugh, among others. However, its shortcoming is a formulaic approach to the rhythm tracks. There's nothing wrong with using modern tools ...

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.
