Ann Dyer: When I Close My Eyes

Read "When I Close My Eyes" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Vocalist Ann Dyer pares away all the nonessentials and rides a subtle but inexorable tidal flow into a search for interior truths on When I Close My Eyes. The sound is spare, poetic, and haunting, the singer accompanied by just accoustic bass and drums for explorations of the darker levels of consciousness. The mood throughout feels ...

Ann Dyer & No Good Time Fairies: Revolver: A New Spin

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.
