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.

The Bob Rockwell 5: Bob's Wilder

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.
