Bob Mamet: Impromptu

Read "Impromptu" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

The title of Impromptu is somewhat misleading. All three musicians in this trio have lightning-quick reflexes and great improvisational skills that certainly help to make instant magic, but the songs themselves aren't off-the-cuff creations as the title might imply.

Fertile Ground: Seasons Change

Read "Seasons Change" reviewed by Javier AQ Ortiz

This gentle sizzling group is the type that would engage an audience ...

Read "Afrika Underground" reviewed by Javier AQ Ortiz

Afrika Underground is a heavily funkified, “souled,” thickly grooved compilation of South African classic acts that uttered their “underground” musical cries under the defunct apartheid system. Hence, therein one gains access to musical material from the 70s and 80s, whereupon funk, fusion rock and particular brands of fusion jazz had their heyday. South African musicians have ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
