Sara Gazarek: Thirsty Ghost

Read "Thirsty Ghost" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

Sara Gazarek has been working as a professional jazz singer since 2004. You can find plenty of vintage YouTube clips of her singing Great American Songbook material in a breezy, polished manner.

Bill Frisell / Thomas Morgan: Small Town

Read "Small Town" reviewed by John Kelman

In Emma Franz's revelatory documentary, Bill Frisell: A Portrait, the guitarist talks about the many guitars he owns, and how he rarely gets to plays them--the consequence, amongst other things, of the plight musicians face when traveling by air these days. Not three months after the film's premiere at South By Southwest this past March, comes ...

Meet James Busby

Read "Meet James Busby" reviewed by Tessa Souter and Andrea Wolper

Our youngest Super Fan to date, and our first from the west coast, James Busby was weaned on the popular music of the '70s and '80s. His first jazz concert--Donald Brown at a local club in Knoxville, Tennesse for a $3 cover--was life-changing. He may not have discovered jazz until he was in college, but ever ...

Jazzahead: A Look at Jazz In Germany

Jazzahead: A Look at Jazz In Germany

Looking forward but also remembering… Peter Brötzmann stands at the edge of the stage with his tenor sax hanging on its sling. He is holding the mouthpiece in his hand, trimming a reed, listening intently: drummer Oliver Steidle is letting rip, but his playing is also very structured. Close your eyes and this could be an ...

Francesco Nastro Trio: Colors of Light

Read "Colors of Light" reviewed by Alex Franquelli

As soon as one lets Francesco Nastro's fingers fondle those keys the way he does on “E all'Improvviso il Sole," the musical geometries that create Colors of Light finally come to life. The music springs from a cocoon-like environment in which pianists the likes of Bill Evans and Brad Mehldau must have forgotten their instruments around, ...

Clovis Nicolas: Nine Stories

Read "Nine Stories" reviewed by Gabriel Medina Arenas

Ron Carter's judgment regarding the talent of a fellow double bassist can't be wrong. The acclaimed musician, who has recorded more than 2,500 albums and was a fundamental member of the Miles Davis Quintet, highly praises the sound and compositions of Clovis Nicolas.

Jeff Ballard: Paid Dues

Read "Jeff Ballard: Paid Dues" reviewed by George Colligan

[ Editor's Note: The following interview is reprinted from George Colligan's blog, Jazztruth] I recently did some teaching in the U.K. at the Birmingham Conservatoire; I was the lone guest clinician/guest performer.

Gwilym Simcock: Blues Vignette

Read "Blues Vignette" reviewed by John Kelman

Around long enough that the phrase “coming late to jazz" is no longer relevant, pianist Gwilym Simcock's star has been rapidly rising on the British scene for the past seven years, as he continues to mine the nexus of a classical upbringing with his more recent “conversion" to jazz. All too often, young artists release albums ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
