Drummers As Leaders

Read "Drummers As Leaders" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

Drummers are not necessarily the first musicians you think of as bandleaders but there is a long tradition of drummer-leaders in jazz from Chick Webb and Gene Krupa to Art Blakey and Paul Motian. Here are two current, lesser-known drummers who keep that lineage going in different formats. Enrique Haneine The Mind's Mural ...

Gene Jackson Trio Nu Yorx: Power Of Love

Read "Power Of Love" reviewed by Roger Farbey

He's worked with many major players in jazz including Dave Holland, ...

10th Annual Red Hook Jazz Festival To Be Held Across Two Sundays In Brooklyn’s Urban Meadow, June 11 & 18 From 1-6 PM

10th Annual Red Hook Jazz Festival To Be Held Across Two Sundays In Brooklyn’s Urban Meadow, June 11 & 18 From 1-6 PM

“The Red Hook Jazz Festival exists contentedly on the margins, like its namesake neighborhood and much of the music on its bill…The mood in the audience was neighborly, with a higher ratio of small children to youngish adults than I’ve seen at any musical event not expressly pitched as a kids’ show.” —Nate Chinen, New York ...

Craig Hartley: Books On Tape, Vol. 2 - Standard Edition

Read "Books On Tape, Vol. 2 - Standard Edition" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Pianist Craig Hartley's debut--Books On Tape, Vol. 1 (Self Produced, 2013)--focused on autobiographically-based originals, with only a single cover in the mix. Now, for the sequel, Hartley flips the script. Books On Tape, Vol. II-Standard Edition is all about the covers, with only one Hartley-penned number on the program. Everybody from Duke Ellington ...

Pi Recordings: Dedicated to the Innovative

Read "Pi Recordings: Dedicated to the Innovative" reviewed by Mike Oppenheim

In the pantheon of American music, jazz is especially noted for its rapid and drastic evolution. Considering that jazz evolved from big bands and swing, to bebop, to free jazz within thirty years, it is a history marked by distinct stylistic eras. For some time, the trajectory and potential development of jazz has been in question. ...

Rob Derke & the NYJAZZ Quartet: Blue Divide

Read "Blue Divide" reviewed by J Hunter

The name “NYJAZZ Quartet" does beg the question, “What is New York Jazz?" Even narrowing the definition to “home grown" music doesn't help, since that range runs from the mainstream sounds of Birdland and the Blue Note to the next-level avant-garde associated with Smalls and the late lamented Knitting Factory. With Blue Divide, saxman Rob Derke ...

Rob Derke & The NYJAZZ Quartet: Blue Divide

Read "Blue Divide" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Saxophonist Rob Derke--the man behind the jazz-promoting nonprofit known as the NYJAZZ Initiative--significantly widened his reach with Mad About Thad (Jazzheads, 2011). That album, a finely sculpted tribute to the great trumpeter-composer Thad Jones, helped to shine a light on Derke's organization and brought more deserved attention to the music of a dearly departed legend. Now, ...

Craig Hartley: Books On Tape, Vol. 1

Read "Books On Tape, Vol. 1" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

The work of any artist is typically the summation of their life experiences to a certain point, but many aren't aware of how or when these experiences seep(ed) into their art; pianist Craig Hartley just happens to have great awareness and a more confessional approach than most, as he lets specific occurrences, influences, events and individuals ...

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.
