Read "Hero Trio" reviewed by Emmanuel Di Tommaso

La sedicesima produzione discografica del sassofonista statunitense di origini indiane Rudresh Mahanthappa rappresenta un nuovo capitolo del progetto di fusione fra la musica carnatica dell'India meridionale e la musica occidentale contemporanea che ne ha caratterizzato l'intera carriera artistica fin dagli inizi negli anni Novanta, anticipando un percorso di sperimentazioni e commistioni intrapreso in anni recenti, tra ...

Read "Ragmala: A Garland of Ragas" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Questo magistrale doppio album di Adam Rudolph nasce dalla collaborazione tra la sua Go: Organic Orchestra e il collettivo Brooklyn Raga Massive.

Adam Rudolph: Ragmala and Prototypical Music

Read "Adam Rudolph: Ragmala and Prototypical Music" reviewed by Franz A. Matzner

Adam Rudolph has been seeking to push the boundaries of musical creativity for decades, developing a unique concept of composition, ensemble interaction, and conducting. As many writers have commented, his music resists critical commentary due to its prototypical nature. Said another way, Rudolph's music doesn't sound like anything else, and its antecedents are so varied that ...

Geno Thackara's Best Releases of 2019

Read "Geno Thackara's Best Releases of 2019" reviewed by Geno Thackara

Another year, another wealth of goodies, and as usual it seems unfair to narrow down so many fine offerings to only a dozen favorites. Also as usual, there were a couple late discoveries that would have deserved to be included here last year if I'd known about them at the time. Belated credit goes to the ...

Read "Day and Taxi,  Adam Rudolph, Harish Raghavan and More" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

First out of the mixed bag of audio treats this week (it's Halloween after all!) is a track from Oliver Lake's first recording 43 years ago Ntu: The Point from Which Creation Begins.

Asian-American Jazz & Improv

Read "Asian-American Jazz & Improv" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

As jazz was born where cultures converged, it's not a surprise that it is the most adaptable form of music. An art form permeable since its very inception to musical traditions from other continents. This week we focus on the contribution of musicians that approached jazz and improvised music benefiting from the wider perspective afforded to ...

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.
