MUSICIAN Born:

Chris Potter

A world-class soloist, accomplished composer and formidable bandleader, saxophonist Chris Potter has emerged as a leading light of his generation. Down Beat called him "One of the most studied (and copied) saxophonists on the planet" while Jazz Times identified him as "a figure of international renown." Jazz sax elder statesman Dave Liebman called him simply, "one of the best musicians around," a sentiment shared by the readers of Down Beat in voting him second only to tenor sax great Sonny Rollins in the magazine's 2008 Readers Poll. A potent improvisor and the youngest musician ever to win Denmark's Jazzpar Prize, Potter's impressive discography includes 15 albums as a leader and sideman appearances on over 100 albums

Artemis: A Band For the Times

Read "Artemis: A Band For the Times" reviewed by R.J. DeLuke

A jazz band was formed a few years ago, comprised completely of women. That was by design for a moment in time at a jazz festival. But the convergence of these great musicians--dubbed collectively as Artemis--is growing to be something more. The members coalesced in a special way. Its importance remains to be seen. ...

Oz Noy: Snapdragon

Read "Snapdragon" reviewed by Mike Jacobs

It's an old sentiment but it still holds that great instrumental chops, enthralling as they may be, are fairly meaningless on their own. And quite frankly, they are pretty ubiquitous these days with the internet exposure machine going full tilt. Given all that, it's quite easy for the listener to become inured with technical prowess-- especially ...

Trio Grande: Three instruments, three nationalities, one supergroup

Read "Trio Grande: Three instruments, three nationalities, one supergroup" reviewed by Friedrich Kunzmann

An incessant stream of new artists, new ideas, revisitations of old ideas and ever-shifting technological inventions continues to push jazz onward, forward into the 21st Century. While most of today's music began taking root and developing in the turbulent jazz topographies of the last century, each new interpretation, extension and redesign today adds a new perspective, ...

Something Old

Read "Something Old" reviewed by Patrick Burnette

The boys start their trawl through some best-of-decade picks they missed during the last eight years by focusing on four albums in the, let's face it, somewhat amorphous “something old" category. By which we mean, I think, albums on best of decades lists featuring well-established artists playing in fairly familiar modes. Any, the results are mixed ...

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.
