Phillip Johnston Returns with Diggin' Bones and The Adventures of Prince Achmed

Read "Phillip Johnston Returns with Diggin' Bones and The Adventures of Prince Achmed" reviewed by John Kelman

The consequences of change in the music industry have been predicted for some time now but, with far too many blinkered deniers, it's had to begin approaching critical mass before being recognized for what it is: the commoditization and devaluation of music that has led to increasing challenges for musicians looking to maintain any kind of ...

Dave Stryker: Strykin’ Ahead

Read "Strykin’ Ahead" reviewed by John Kelman

Having just turned sixty this year, it's still quite remarkable that Dave Stryker--a musician who, unfortunately and unfairly, fits into the category of “one of the best guitarists most have never heard"--has released well over thirty albums as a leader/co-leader (including his Stryker/Slagle Band, with saxophonist Steve Slagle, and Latin-informed Trio Mundo) in a little more ...

Nick Moran Trio: No Time Like Now

Read "No Time Like Now" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Organ trios can be annoyingly conservative. Perhaps the temptation to revisit the heyday of the style--the early 1960s--and recapture the magic that made all of those Blue Note and Prestige LPs so much fun is just too great.

Young / Powell / Vespestad: Anthem

Read "Anthem" reviewed by John Kelman

Public perception can often be misleading. Those only familiar with Jacob Young's ECM recordings, including the sublime Evening Falls (2004), inevitably think of him as a painstakingly lyrical guitarist, informed by Jim Hall's economical forward- thinking and penchant for the sound of a warm, organic hollowbody or steely acoustic instrument. But that's only part of the ...

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.
