Patty Griffin: 1000 Kisses

Read "1000 Kisses" reviewed by Ashley King


In today’s digitalized culture, where we have become so accustomed to sensory overload, an artist like Patty Griffin is a rare treasure. Griffin first displayed her unique gift for simplistic beauty on 1996’s Living With Ghosts, an album sparse in its instrumentation (the record featured only guitar and vocal and was intended to be “demo style”), ...

Soundtrack: I Am Sam

Read "I Am Sam" reviewed by Ashley King


If I Am Sam falters upon its recent release, it has something to fall back on: superb music. And a “sound” soundtrack is a bragging right that not every film can claim.

Rickie Lee Jones: Live At Red Rocks

Read "Live At Red Rocks" reviewed by Ashley King

Dan Bern: New American Language

Absent this time around are the jejune antics that plagued previous releases, leaving ...

Natalie Merchant: Motherland

Read "Motherland" reviewed by Ashley King


People have been expecting big things from Natalie Merchant. While her latest release, Motherland, may not make many “Best of" lists for 2001, it most definitely made some “Most Anticipated" lists prior to its November release. On the heels of an American Folk Music tour and out of a collaboration with renowned roots-rock producer T-Bone Burnett ...

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!
