Billy Bang: Lucky Man

Read "Lucky Man" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

When he performed in Germany, they called him the “black devil violinist," his frenetic playing wrapped in a gyrating, trance-like state.

He studied violin ...

Sean Khan: Distant Voice

Read "Distant Voice" reviewed by Chris May

Sean Khan is among the most interesting of British jazz musicians, a prime exponent of jazz as rebel music with a unique voice. And yet, twenty years after he debuted with his band SK Radicals, Khan remains one of the scene's least celebrated players. Khan accurately describes himself as a “career outsider." Like another outsider, fellow ...

Read "Jazz In Detroit / Strata Concert Gallery / 46 Selden" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Jazz In Detroit / Strata Concert Gallery / 46 Selden captures a short-lived quintet that--given time--could have been Mingus' best. Drummer Roy Brooks and trumpeter Joe Gardner ...

Read "Jazz In Detroit / Strata Concert Gallery / 46 Selden" reviewed by Chris May

AA.VV.: The Best of Perception & Today Records

Read "The Best of Perception & Today Records" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Storia di eclettismo e di una certa sfacciataggine produttiva quella dell'etichetta Perception, attiva per meno di un decennio a cavallo tra gli anni Sessanta e Settanta. Una storia in cui “siedono" fianco a fianco senza problemi differenti espressioni della cultura afroamericana del periodo, dal jazz al soul, dalla poetry a quella musica da ballo che di ...

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!
