Bukka White

Booker T. Washington “Bukka” White was another of the original Bluesmen to come out of Mississippi, living the life they sang about. He benefited from a resurgence of interest in his music and was able to enjoy firsthand the Blues Revival, performing and recording until his death in 1977. Born on a farm near Houston, Mississippi, November 12, 1909, and named for the famed black educator, Bukka White was interested in music from an early age. His father taught him guitar at the age of nine, and a chance meeting with Charley Patton convinced the young White to "come to be a great man like Charley Patton." The son of a railroad worker, White was exposed to the sound of trains from an early age and was not afraid to hobo a train

Noah Preminger: Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground

Read "Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

A un anno scarso dal precedente Pivot: Live at the 55 Bar, il trentenne tenorsassofonista newyorchese Noah Preminger torna sul luogo del delitto. Che non è la sede dell'incisione (questo, anzi, è un album in studio, benché inciso in un jazz club, il Side Door, in Connecticut), quanto il repertorio, anche stavolta estratto dalla grande letteratura ...

Rollin' and Tumblin'

Read "Rollin' and Tumblin'" reviewed by Mario Calvitti

Rollin' and Tumblin' Roberto Menabò 194 Pagine ISBN: 978-8862318228 Arcana 2014 Per quanto il blues sia un genere musicale da tempo largamente diffuso e storicizzato, i dati biografici dei suoi più grandi interpreti sono ancora ampiamente sconosciuti, dispersi nel terreno paludoso tra realtà e leggenda dove spesso le ...

Noah Preminger: Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground

Read "Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground" reviewed by James Nadal

The Delta Blues, spawned from the callous conditions on Mississippi plantations and farmlands, is an artistic manifestation that creativity can overcome, survive, and thrive, amidst overwhelming situations. These sparse, rural blues, which came out of the fields so long ago, continue to influence contemporary musicians seeking a raw form of expression. Count saxophonist Noah Preminger among ...

Noah Preminger: Pivot: Live at the 55 Bar

Read "Pivot: Live at the 55 Bar" reviewed by Dave Wayne

In a decidedly bold move, young tenor saxophonist Noah Preminger's first self-released album, Pivot: Live at the 55 Bar, consists of two 30-minute-plus tracks; both interpretations of tunes by bluesman Bukka White. The result? A white-knuckle modern jazz thrill ride and possibly the fastest hour you'll spend in front of the stereo this year. Listening to ...

John Butcher: So Far

Read "John Butcher: So Far" reviewed by Sammy Stein

Saxophonist John Butcher's career could have taken an academic path. He completed a Ph.D in theoretical physics--Charmed Quarks to be precise--but left the academic world behind shortly thereafter. As a saxophonist, Butcher has played with and collaborated with many musicians. He is not afraid to try completely off the wall musical experimentation.

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.
