Roger and Brian Eno: Mixing Colours

Read "Mixing Colours" reviewed by Nenad Georgievski

In a storied and kaleidoscopic career which has seen him change the course of music several times, it is fair to say that British musician, producer and visual artist, Brian Eno has never been one to park himself in the same spot for too long. It will come as little surprise then, that his latest effort, ...

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.
