Rogér Fakhr: Fine Anyway

Read "Fine Anyway" reviewed by Gareth Thompson


Based in Berlin, the label Habibi Funk took its name from an online comment about one of its mixes. “Habibi" is actually the Arabic word for “darling," which seems fitting for a company intent on sharing the love. Their stated aim is to reissue mostly North African musical treasures from the 1970s and '80s, ranging from ...

In Greenwich Village, twenty-five-year-old photographer Herman Leonard had just opened his first photography studio to the south. A bebop fan, he was ...

La vita e la musica di Makaya McCraven

Read "La vita e la musica di Makaya McCraven" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


Un ritratto di Makaya McCraven deve necessariamente considerare la mutazione antropologica che è avvenuta nell'ultima generazione di musicisti afroamericani che si spingono oltre la tradizionale sintesi tra jazz e generi popolari, usando creativamente la tecnologia sperimentata nell'ultimo trentennio dai DJ e produttori dell'hip-hop e della club culture. Le musiche di questo tumultuoso torrente ...

Not the best year for live gigs in London, but Dele Sosimi's Afrobeat Orchestra just made it under the wire, lighting up the Jazz Cafe in late January. Rather like Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers, Sosimi's band has form as an incubator of young talent. A recent star in the making was trumpeter Ife Ogunjobi, who has ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
