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

Jimmy "Duck" Holmes: Cypress Grove

Read "Cypress Grove" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

One such musician is Jimmy Duck Holmes of Bentonia, Mississippi. ...

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.
