Abdullah Ibrahim & Ekaya: Sotho Blue

Read "Sotho Blue" reviewed by Raul d'Gama Rose

The music of pianist Abdullah Ibrahim has lit up the world, shining brightly in the darkest recesses of the mind for decades.

Abdullah Ibrahim: Perpetual Change

A piece of music is born, it grows and gradually matures but it ...

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.
