B.J. Jansen: Commmon Ground

Read "Commmon Ground" reviewed by Luigi Sforza

Appare chiaro sin dalle prime battute quale sia il mood di questo progetto del giovane sassofonista baritono B.J. Jansen. La maggior parte del repertorio è costituita da una sequenza di episodi musicali che molto hanno a che fare con la tradizione musicale afroamericana.

B.J. Jansen: Common Ground

Read "Common Ground" reviewed by Matthew Aquiline

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.
