Comparisons are only as good as the knowledge of the compared, but they can be helpful. Guitarist Scott Dubois' efforts on Banshees invite comparison to Samo Salamon, in that his instrumental technique and, by extension, his music live in the world of the unexpected and the unpredictable.

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.
