AXIOM

Self-Evident Truth in both concept and application best describes the realization of the musical goals of brothers Peter Templer and Phil Templer. The road towards that realization has been one of many twists and turns often encountered by professional musicians striving to explore their own artistic expressions, while at the same time responding to the ever changing demands of both the national and international marketplace. ​Through AXIOM, Peter and Phil feel that they are indeed establishing their own special place on the contemporary music scene. When recently asked "What is AXIOM all about and what are you trying to say, musically speaking?" Peter responds, 'As the name implies, this is the self-evident truth in music for us! I grew up playing tunes by Jr

A Dream Come True Hi Everyone. I want to thank you for visiting the website and checking out my Contemporary Jazz and Latin music project – “Dreams To Reality.” It is the result of a very personal journey and a dream come true. For many years, I carried the inner desire to create music that would represent what was playing in my head, although I was never able to fully document or express that music until this CD. So as a result of many pieces of the puzzle falling into place along with several miracles, I am happy to present to you, the listener, my CD of original compositions. The Early Years These songs represent glimpses into my past and are the cumulative effect of the music I heard early on in my life

PC ENERGETIC

PC ENERGETIC is the international trio of award-winning guitarist Philip Czarnecki. It stands for a fat, modern and colourful sound. Modern jazz meets the sound-aesthetics and raw energy of rock and funk. This results in rocky and funky guitar-riffs, energetic improvisations and compositions, which are rich in rhythmic and harmonic complexity on the one hand and narrative and melodic on the other. Furthermore responsible for the powerful, yet multi-layered and versatile sound is bassist Jonathan Ihlenfeld Cuñado and drummer Marc Ayza. On their debut-album "Illusion" the band features renowned saxophonist Jasper Blom and the singer Rakel Salazar

AP Project

The Arcangelo Pezzella Project is not just the name I use to register my recordings; it's my idea of jazz. It has no boundaries; it cannot be strictly confined in a style, a groove, a sound, and not labeled in any way. On the contrary, it blends a world of sounds to create new ones. That is my aim: trying to create new things from old ones, exploring idioms, rules, harmonic choices, grooves and more, and finding new ways to express what I am, feel and think. To do so, the need for incredibly talented and like-minded musicians is of the utmost importance and, luckily, I found them: Guido Foi (piano and keys), Alessandro Petricciuolo (bass), Francesco Pellegrino (drums) and featured artist Angela Addezio (vocals). "Out Of The Blue", shows the results of it: no track is the same, and yet they are linked in unexpected ways, leading the listener from a world to the next one in a smooth and smart way. In conclusion, I want to thank you for reading this and I really wish you will enjoy your musical journey with us

Yuval Ron

Guitarist Yuval Ron performs original tunes which transcend the boundaries of any specific musical genre. Inspired by a crossover of modern Jazz-Rock icons and a host of many other contemporary artists from the Progressive Rock, Fusion, Metal and modern music genres, it is all well blended into an own fresh and distinct musical direction. The music features virtuosic performances of various compelling and colorful compositions, produced on top of a cinematic, orchestral, some say Sci-Fi film-like backgrounds, atmospheric soundscapes and various implanted sound effects drawing the listener into a total, electrifying experience. The players place a constant emphasis on harmonic richness, rhythmical sophistication and an extensive use of synthesizers, laptops and other electronic instruments

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.
