Read "Frank Woeste: Reversing Ravel" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

Regina Carter--Dave Douglas Mountainside Trentino, 15-16.07.2014 “All'aperto si gioca a bocce". Così rispose, ad un giornalista che gli aveva chiesto cosa pensasse della musica all'aperto, il grande Arturo Toscanini. Altri tempi.

Riverside: Riverside

Read "Riverside" reviewed by Troy Collins

The collaborative quartet Riverside was initially founded by Montreal-based tenor saxophonist Chet Doxas to explore the legacy of groundbreaking American composer and multi-reedist Jimmy Giuffre.

Dave Douglas: Riverside

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.
