Brian Wilson and Van Dyke Parks: Orange Crate Art 25th Anniversary Edition (2 CD)

Read "Orange Crate Art 25th Anniversary Edition (2 CD)" reviewed by Doug Collette

Personal estrangement, lawsuits and terminal illness permeated the Beach Boys' world when Orange Crate Art was originally released in 1995. It is thus little wonder it was greeted with more than a little ballyhoo (even if that was bit tentative), but that's also because it was, apart from the single song “Sail On Sailor" from Holland ...

The New Riders of The Purple Sage: Thanksgiving in New York City

Read "Thanksgiving in New York City" reviewed by Doug Collette

As preserved on Thanksgiving In New York City, The New Riders Of The Purple Sage were far more than just a mere offshoot of the Grateful Dead.

Jimmy "Duck" Holmes: Cypress Grove

Read "Cypress Grove" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Cypress Grove is the tale of two very different artists following well-tested and successful professional trajectories. While none of the Ur-bluesmen (Charlie Patton, Son House, Tommy Johnson, Skip James, Ishmon Bracey) are living, there remain a few musicians who knew them while they were still alive. One such musician is Jimmy Duck Holmes of Bentonia, Mississippi. ...

Read "The Floating World" reviewed by Doug Collette

Rob Laufer's first album in nine years, The Floating World, will no doubt compel repeated listenings after the first one, if only so the curious music lover can better distinguish how much he or she might have missed on that initial hearing. While the LP's main touchstones are a bit obvious, the process of distinguishing the ...

Bobby Rush: Sitting on Top of the Blues

Read "Sitting on Top of the Blues" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

There exists a fertile underbelly to American Music. It is music that never experiences the success of a Jay Z or Beyonce, but is infinitely more vital and fecund than any of the synthesized, IPad-generated, “genius" generated sounds that have come out over the past 20 year. Sorry, but “rad beats" is not everything and second-hand ...

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.
