Ben Sidran at Dazzle

Read "Ben Sidran at Dazzle" reviewed by Geoff Anderson

Ben Sidran Dazzle Denver, CO October 23, 2019 Ben Sidran is a quadruple threat. Many great musicians claim the trifecta of vocals, instrumental chops and songwriting. Sidran has all those. On top of all that, Sidran adds philosophizing. Or maybe it's storytelling. Or maybe both of those things. Wednesday night, Sidran ...

Dave King with Bill Carrothers and Billy Peterson: I've Been Ringing You

Read "I've Been Ringing You" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Drummer Dave King's major fame and fortune--though mostly fame; this is, after all, jazz we're talking about--comes from his work with The Bad Plus.

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.
