Read "Steve Williamson & Guildhall Jazz Orchestra: Celebrating Coltrane at Milton Court" reviewed by Chris May


Steve Williamson / Guildhall Jazz Orchestra / Scott Stroman Milton Court Concert Hall Celebrating Coltrane London July 10, 2019 The word “legendary" is bandied around so indiscriminately these days that it has all but lost its meaning. London saxophonist Steve Williamson is among a tiny number ...

Indigo Kid II: Fist Full Of Notes

Read "Fist Full Of Notes" reviewed by Karl Ackermann


At the risk of implying that the very selective UK-based Babel Label has gone “mainstream," they have--of late--issued a number of releases that certainly have a broader appeal. A homage to Bill Evans Postcard to Bill Evans (2015) and vocalist Emilia Mårtensson's fine Ana (2014), now share a catalog with cutting edge artists like pianist Alexander ...

Read "Lookout!" reviewed by Ed Kopp


I went completely nuts over Rick Holmstrom's boogie-woogie version of “Sleigh Ride" on Black Top's Christmas compilation, so I finally went out and purchased his solo CD over the holidays. Man, am I glad I did! This is a rollicking instrumental album with a retro '50s feel. Lookout! is a completely infectious West Coast blues CD ...

Rusty Zinn: Confessin'

Read "Confessin'" reviewed by Ed Kopp


Rusty Zinn is a talented 29-year-old blues guitarist from San Francisco with a retro sound that combines West Coast and Chicago blues styles.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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!
