Benny Golson Quintet: That's Funky

Read "That's Funky" reviewed by AAJ Staff


Looking back past the rule of Parliament to the age of Horace Silver, Benny Golson’s That's Funky pays tribute to Louis Armstrong through two renditions of his popular favorite “Mack the Knife." While the opening “funky version" starts off a bit sluggish and includes some pinched soloing by Nat Adderley, Monty Alexander’s firm comps make it ...

Nigel Clark: Grand Hotel Europa

Read "Grand Hotel Europa" reviewed by Glenn Astarita


Here, Scotsman, Nigel Clark utilizes a nylon string acoustic guitar for a series of predominately up-tempo standards and original compositions.

Paul Tobey: Street Culture

Read "Street Culture" reviewed by AAJ Staff


Paul Tobey's first Arkadia CD seems to be significant in several ways.From the label's perspective, it represents an extension of its earlier documentation of and rejoicing in the music of already-established jazz musicians who lacked a recording contract-seemingly, an incomprehensible oversight. Legends like Dr. Billy Taylor, Benny Golson, Joanne Brackeen and Dave Liebman were ...

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!
