Field Trip To The Vault!

Read "Field Trip To The Vault!" reviewed by Marc Cohn

After a dose of 21st century music from Dave Allen, Pat Metheny and Aziza, we continue to celebrate the life of Sonny Rollins with tracks from his last session for Prestige in 1956.

A quick look back at the year reminds us that jazz legends remain strong, rising stars continue to rapidly ascend, newcomers are making their presence felt, and the dearly ...


Aziza: Aziza

Read "Aziza" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

How do you define Aziza? Is it a collective-minded outfit? A supergroup? An offshoot or variant on previous gatherings? An archetype for musical synergy? A nod-in-name to African mythology and spiritual discovery? Yes, it's all of that. But why not avoid the traps and trappings involved with classification and just cut to the chase: Aziza is ...


Dave Holland, Chris Potter, Lionel Loueke, Eric Harland: Aziza

Read "Aziza" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Se dovessi scegliere il brano per me più elettrizzante dal disco di questo super gruppo non esiterei a consigliare l'ultimo: “Sleepless Night," un concentrato di energia ritmico/percussiva al calor bianco, esaltata dal lungo confronto tra il tenore di Chris Potter e la chitarra (in questo caso distorta) di Lionel Loueke.

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
