Read "Alloy" reviewed by Luca Canini

Certi dischi ci impiegano un po' ad arrivare. Hanno bisogno di una certa distanza, di tempo per sedimentare in fondo alle orecchie. Giorni, settimane, a volte mesi. Guai ad avere fretta: bisogna saperli aspettare con infinita pazienza, coccolarli e convincerli dolcemente a parlare. Impresa che di fronte all'ostinato silenzio del timido Alloy, quarta ...

Tyshawn Sorey: Alloy

Read "Alloy" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

From an early age composer/drummer/educator Tyshawn Sorey has found creative outlets in not just music but in painting and literature as well.

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.
