Fred Hersch: Songs From Home

Read "Songs From Home" reviewed by Victor L. Schermer

As Fred Hersch is sometimes wont to do, this album is built around a story, some of which is intended, and some of which may be embedded in the pianist's unconscious and manifested in his imagination and the way that he plays. The conscious part is simple, and basically stated in the liner notes. Hersch leaves ...

Gianni Iorio & Pasquale Stafano: Mediterranean Tales

Read "Mediterranean Tales" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Pablo Ziegler Trio: Jazz Tango

Read "Jazz Tango" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Jazz Tango--winner of the 2018 Grammy for “Best Latin Jazz Album"--is a distillation of pianist Pablo Ziegler's vision.

Old Time Musketry: Drifter

Read "Drifter" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Old and new collide and intermingle in a variety of appealing ways on Drifter, the second long-player by the Brooklyn-based collective, Old Time Musketry. It's funny, though, how old has become new and new has become old. J. P. Schlegelmilch, the keyboardist and primary composer for the band (he wrote all but 2 of Drifter's varied ...

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.
