Rain Sultanov: Putting Baku On The Jazz Map

Thirteen editions in, however, the Baku Jazz Festival is well established as one of the highpoints of Azerbaijan's annual cultural calendar. It mightn't draw ...

Read "Sacred World of Azerbaijani Mugham" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Fascino indiscutibile, e magari anche un po' di stanchezza all'ascolto di brani tutti di una certa consistenza (dagli otto ...

AA.VV: Azerbaijani Love Songs

Read "Azerbaijani Love Songs" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro


Un gruppo di registrazioni effettuate fra il 2007 e il 2013 confluiscono in questo ulteriore album, a più mani, dedicato dalla Felmay alla musica azera.

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!
