Giancarlo Schiaffini & Sergio Armaroli and Kopasetic artists

Read "Giancarlo Schiaffini & Sergio Armaroli and Kopasetic artists" reviewed by Maurice Hogue


Deconstructing one of the original deconstructers of jazz, Thelonious Monk, is no easy task, but the Italian duo of trombonist Giancarlo Schiaffini and percussionist Sergio Armaroli do exactly that on their new album Deconstructing Monk In Africa.

Geof Bradfield, Ben Goldberg, Dana Hall Trio: General Semantics

Read "General Semantics" reviewed by Troy Dostert


A fortuitous meeting between veteran clarinetist Ben Goldberg and two up-and-coming stalwarts of the Chicago creative jazz scene, saxophonist Geof Bradfield and drummer Dana Hall, General Semantics is a tribute to the power of spontaneous interaction among like-minded musicians. Although Bradfield and Hall have worked together extensively since Bradfield's quintet album Our Roots (Origin Records, 2015), ...

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!
