However, all the text is presented in French on the CD package, and the same is true for the spoken word narratives. ...

Moutin Factory Quintet: Deep

Read "Deep" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Everything from the grooves to the compositions to the thought content embedded in each musician's statements can be summed up by that simple-yet-complex title.

Roberto Negro Trio invite Christophe Monniot: Luna di Wuxi - L'opéra

Read "Luna di Wuxi - L'opéra" reviewed by Stefano Merighi

Ci si chiede a volte quale sia il grado di consapevolezza che spinge un giovane musicista nell'arena del jazz e della musica improvvisata; quale sia il suo disegno estetico (sempre che ne abbia uno), quali le sue aspettative di riconoscimento. Vien da dire che, oltrepassando ogni impasse, l'atteggiamento migliore possa essere quello dell'entusiasmo incondizionato ...

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.
