Read "Jazz from the US Virgin Islands' new breed" reviewed by Nigel Campbell

Michael Formanek Ensemble Kolossus: The Distance

Read "The Distance" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro


Riporta alla mente esperienze tipo quelle, gloriose, consumate a cavallo fra anni Sessanta e Settanta dal cenacolo raccolto attorno alla premiata ditta Carla Bley/Michael Mantler, questo notevole nuovo lavoro di Michael Formanek (incisione del dicembre 2014).

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!
