Even if but for a moment. ...

Read "Seven by Seven" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Settetto molto compatto, solido, il Brooklyn Jazz Underground pratica un jazz non particolarmente avventuroso ma comunque ben congegnato e condotto, col ruolo-guida che passa dalla voce (persino iperpresente nella prima parte dell'album) alla tromba, al sax tenore. Ci sono delle ripetizioni e un asservimento al canto a volte persino eccessivo, quasi supino, tuttavia il lavoro prende ...

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.
