Jasper Lundgaard / Bob Rockwell / Doug Raney / Henrik Gunde, Aage Tanggaard: Love & Peace: The Music of Harold Parlan

Read "Love & Peace: The Music of Harold Parlan" reviewed by Chris Mosey

Maybe it was the mournful sound of the foghorns belonging to the ships passing below the Great Belt Bridge. Or the music he'd just been listening to, and featured on this album.

E non solo. Come “Big Ben", Bob Rockwell è americano ...

The Bob Rockwell 5: Bob's Wilder

Read "Bob's Wilder" reviewed by Jack Bowers

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!
