Thana Alexa: ONA

Read "ONA" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


Ci giunge con un po' di ritardo questo secondo disco della talentuosa vocalist e compositrice Thana Alexa, ma va assolutamente considerato. Anche questo, come già il debutto Ode to Heroes, è un tributo: dalle figure musicali che l'hanno influenzata siamo passati a una celebrazione del genere femminile e al ruolo—spesso sottovalutato—che svolgono nel mondo.

Francesca Remigi: impegno sociale, innovazione e crescita

Read "Francesca Remigi: impegno sociale, innovazione e crescita" reviewed by Serena Antinucci


Il primo disco della batterista e compositrice Francesca Remigi, Il labirinto dei topi, realizzato insieme al gruppo Archipélagos è un progetto complesso e importante, in cui si osserva la società e si esprimono le sue profonde contraddizioni. La batterista di Bergamo ci fa ascoltare il deterioramento delle logiche capitalistiche, lo sfaldamento del sistema sociale e culturale ...

Albare: Plays Jobim Vol. 2

Read "Plays Jobim Vol. 2" reviewed by Jack Bowers


Albare Plays Jobim, Vol. 2 by Moroccan-born, Israeli-raised guitarist Albare (the only name given) isn't quite what it seems. While the names of the musicians and guest artists are listed on the jacket, what is not addressed is the presence of a string orchestra, the only suggestion of which is pianist Joe Chindamo's designation as “orchestra ...

When a venue like the Jazz Standard closes the loss should not be seen only in terms of a ...

Trio Grande: Three instruments, three nationalities, one supergroup

Read "Trio Grande: Three instruments, three nationalities, one supergroup" reviewed by Friedrich Kunzmann


An incessant stream of new artists, new ideas, revisitations of old ideas and ever-shifting technological inventions continues to push jazz onward, forward into the 21st Century. While most of today's music began taking root and developing in the turbulent jazz topographies of the last century, each new interpretation, extension and redesign today adds a new perspective, ...

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!
