Andy Milne & Dapp Theory: Forward In All Directions

Read "Forward In All Directions" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Can music be both sprawling and focused in nature? The aptly-titled Forward In All Directions says it can, and it says so in convincing fashion. Andy Milne, a distinguished M-Base alumnus who's worked with everybody from saxophonist Ravi Coltrane to harmonica heavy Gregoire Maret to singer-songwriter Bruce Cockburn, doesn't draw borders in his ...


Jenny Scheinman: The Littlest Prisoner

Read "The Littlest Prisoner" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

It's tempting to say that Jenny Scheinman has a split musical personality, but that's not really the case. The playful-and-devious violinist with a glint in her eye and the poised alt-country singer aren't as far apart as some may think, as both are powered by the heartbeat of American life; it's just important to remember that ...

She belongs to a league of artists who redefined the poetic and instrumental boundaries of the folk singer-songwriter genre such as Greg Brown, Bruce Cockburn and Richard Thompson. She is a wise lyricist and inventive guitarist who can encapsulate a profound emotional experience in few ...

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.
