Veronica Swift: This Bitter Earth

Read "This Bitter Earth" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

Sara Gazarek: Thirsty Ghost

Read "Thirsty Ghost" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


Le vocalist emerse dopo il 2010 (Cécile McLorin Salvant, Jazzmeia Horn, Veronica Swift, Cyrille Aimée ecc...) hanno messo un po' in ombra quelle del decennio precedente come Kate McGarry, Gretchen Parlato e appunto Sara Gazarek.

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
