Nicholas Krolak Interview

Read "Nicholas Krolak Interview" reviewed by Patrick Burnette

In this wide-ranging interview, the boys talk with bassist Nicholas Krolak, a Philadelphian with insights on pacing a set, marketing difficult-to-publicize music like jazz, the cost of including standards on a CD, and the oblique thinking of Bad Plus pianist Orrin Evans. There's also some discussion of “bachelor cookies" (not a euphemism) in there.

Kneebody: Chapters

Read "Chapters" reviewed by Emmanuel Di Tommaso

Chapters è il nono disco in studio degli americani Kneebody, il quartetto fondato nel 2001 fra le aule della Eastman School of Music di Rochester dagli allora studenti Adam Benjamin, Ben Wendel, Shane Endsley e Kaveh Rastegar, a cui si aggiunse successivamente Nate Wood. A tre anni dal solido Anti-Hero, un disco rassicurante nella misura in ...

Meet Davis Wilson

Read "Meet Davis Wilson" reviewed by Tessa Souter and Andrea Wolper

Jeopardy contestant, amateur pianist, dance teacher, actor, sailor, postal worker, our July Super Fan has lived all over the place and done it all. Now based in St. Paul, Minnesota, he met “zillions of artists" as keeper of the flame at the old Artists' Quarter jazz club. But he stumbled upon one of the most memorable ...

The Montreal International Jazz Festival has just concluded its 38th year. I've been fortunate to have attended more than 30 of them and this year ranked among the best.

Martin Speake: The Thinking Fan's Saxophonist

Read "Martin Speake: The Thinking Fan's Saxophonist" reviewed by Duncan Heining

British alto saxophonist, Martin Speake, is one of the most adventurous and articulate musicians in a music peppered with creative artists. That he is not a household name--even within the proscribed and marginalised world of jazz--says more about the times than it does about Speake or his single-minded approach to his art. Speake combines ...

Bologna Jazz Festival 2015

Read "Bologna Jazz Festival 2015" reviewed by Libero Farnè

Compie dieci anni il “nuovo" festival di Bologna, proteso a rinverdire i fasti dello storico festival che chiuse i battenti nel 1975, al quale seguirono negli anni Ottanta e Novanta vari tentativi di ripresa presto falliti. Organizzata dall'associazione Bologna in Musica, questa edizione consolida la formula avviata negli anni passati, coprendo un intero mese di programmazione ...

Albert "Tootie" Heath, Ethan Iverson, Ben Street: Philadelphia Beat

Read "Philadelphia Beat" reviewed by Stefano Merighi

Ottant'anni di fragranza sono quelli di Albert “Tootie" Heath, a giudicare dalla qualità del gioco imbastito in trio con il piano di Ethan Iverson ed il contrabbasso di Ben Street, un gioco giunto alla sua terza e più riuscita mano, votato alle regole non scritte della scuola jazzistica di Philadelphia. Un magistero, quello di Heath, plasmato ...

Bergamo Jazz 2015

Read "Bergamo Jazz 2015" reviewed by Libero Farnè

Sotto la direzione artistica di Enrico Rava per il quarto anno consecutivo, Bergamo Jazz 2015 ha proposto un ampio ventaglio di espressioni jazzistiche, ognuna delle quali fortemente caratterizzata; quasi a ribadire la natura poliedrica di questa musica, la ragione stessa della sua sopravvivenza, vale a dire la sua tentacolare commistione di generi, approcci e forme diverse, ...

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.
