Johnny Blas: Indestructible Spirit

Read "Indestructible Spirit" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

"This album differs in style, it has more of a funky jazz beat with a twist of Latin, suggests Johnny Blas. “Kind of a throwback to the '70s sound. Indestructible Spirit also represents rebirth for Latin percussionist Blas, who leads a brand new band and even performs on saxophone. “Oaklands Mambo opens the set ...

Papo Vasquez: Carnival in San Juan

Read "Carnival in San Juan" reviewed by Terrell Kent Holmes

Trombonist/composer/arranger Papo Vazquez, along with his group Pirates Troubadours, has just unleashed Carnival in San Juan, a multifaceted celebration which captures the spirit of its title. And the title cut is quite an opening statement. Vazquez’ solo bursts with rapid-fire phrases, and tenor man Willie Williams follows with a rollicking upper register attack. Pianist ...

Francisco Aguabella: Ochimini

Read "Ochimini" reviewed by Jerry D'Souza

If age does not wither nor custom stale, then Francisco Aguabella drives the point home very well. Ochimini proves that he still has plenty of zest and fire which he pours into his music. Even in the quieter climes there is a slow simmer that brings in a cozy comfort. Aguabella leads the charge, and he ...

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.
