Samuel Blaser: Purity of Purpose In All Things

Read "Samuel Blaser: Purity of Purpose In All Things" reviewed by Doug Collette

One of trombonist/composer Samuel Blaser's more subtle talents is his uncanny ability to as fully distinguish himself accompanying other musicians as when he is leading theme. The prominence of a sideman is, by definition, not so great as the bandleader, producer etc, but to completely engage in the project of another is an exercise in generosity ...

Darrifourcq, Hermia & Ceccaldi... and Cheeseburgers

Read "Darrifourcq, Hermia & Ceccaldi... and Cheeseburgers" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

It's very different but very exciting stuff. Also new from Europe and more ...

Read "(Not So) Standards" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

For decades jazz standards have provided improvisers with both a vehicle and a testing ground for their creativity. In some cases they have taken more liberties than others. This week we focus on not-so-standard renditions of jazz standards, from “Take Five" to “My Favorite Things," from “Mood Indigo" to “'Round Midnight," two hours of jazz played ...

Film Noir, a Jazz Investigation

Read "Film Noir, a Jazz Investigation" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

In search of clues about the key components that make it possible to build the mood, the suspense, the intrigue, the build-up of tension, the adrenaline rush and the release in a good film noir with a jazz soundtrack, or in the jazz soundtrack of an imaginary film noir. Plus an interview with German-born, ...

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!
