Part 1 | Part 2 The entire world was in lockdown during the COVID-19 crisis, and of course, that included musicians. Unable to tour and record with their various ensembles, many artists prepared solo projects (some recorded before the virus struck). Most of the music is very personal, as if the artists are asking ...

EUPHORIUM_freakestra: soundz offfe drzk wähuh

Read "soundz offfe drzk wähuh" reviewed by Mark Corroto


The funny thing about DNA is that just when scientists believe it to be the identifiable signature of all living things, along comes CRISPR gene editing. This technology allows an operator to edit the basic genetic material of an organism, much like the music of Oliver Schwerdt's EUPHORIUM_freakestra. We're not talking science fiction here, more like ...

Inexhaustible Editions: The Little Label That Roars

Read "Inexhaustible Editions: The Little Label That Roars" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Tibor Prettschnöder: The Largo And The Lame

Read "The Largo And The Lame" reviewed by Mark Corroto


By now it is generally accepted that there is such a category as Germanic free improvisation. One separate from the Peter Brötzmann, Alexander von Schlippenbach, Günter Sommer, Peter Kowald, Manfred Schoof, Gerd Dudek, Albert Mangelsdorff, etc, etc. school of free jazz that machine-gunned its way into the European scene of the late 1960s. These new rebels ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
