Ambrose Akinmusire: Painting Saviors

Read "Ambrose Akinmusire: Painting Saviors" reviewed by DanMichael Reyes

Trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire (pronounced ah-kin-MOO-sir-ee) is as imaginative as the sonic soundscapes he creates and as informative as the titles that he bestows on his songs. Ambrose Akinmusire's allure stems from the complexity of his albums; a complexity that requires the listener to fully participate and engage with the artist and ask questions as to who ...

Gerard D'Angelo: Who's Kidding Who?

Read "Gerard D'Angelo: Who's Kidding Who?" reviewed by DanMichael Reyes

The old adage about those who can do and those who can't teach doesn't fit nicely into any music tradition. If this fallacy were to hold true, then it would be best for music history books to write off Joseph Haydn for taking on pupils--Beethoven being one of the more famous ones. That old idiom penned ...

Mark Sherman: Truth Of Who I Am

Read "Mark Sherman: Truth Of Who I Am" reviewed by DanMichael Reyes

Vibraphonist Mark Sherman likes using the term consummate to describe musicians and colleagues that he's played with. While it would be difficult to speak to every notable musician that Sherman's played for and ask about their opinion about Juilliard graduate and professor, it is safe to assume that they would also describe Sherman as a consummate ...

Takuya Kuroda: Rising Son

Read "Takuya Kuroda: Rising Son" reviewed by DanMichael Reyes

Awards aren't handed down to individuals that proclaim how tough it is to live in New York. Likewise, it's not news to write that the life of the modern day jazz musician is difficult. If we follow the past two sentences we might come to the conclusion that the life of a New York jazz musician ...

Eyal Lovett: Eyal Lovett: Let Go

Read "Eyal Lovett: Let Go" reviewed by DanMichael Reyes

Israeli-born, Berlin-based pianist and composer Eyal Lovett has played the part of the consummate student up to this point. Lovett has studied with some of jazz's greatest luminaries like Hal Galper, Sam Yahel, George Cables, Ari Hoenig, and Jane Ira Bloom to name a few.

Fabian Almazan: Espejos

Read "Fabian Almazan: Espejos" reviewed by DanMichael Reyes

Intent is one of those intangible qualities that make a jazz musician. While traits like technical facility, memory, harmonic and rhythmic sophistication play a huge part in the career and development of the aspiring jazz artist, intention is the X-factor that can make a performance special. In an art form that demands spontaneity and thrives within ...

Brian Carpenter: In Between The Cracks

Read "Brian Carpenter: In Between The Cracks" reviewed by DanMichael Reyes

To write that Brian Carpenter has had an interesting career would be an incomplete statement since he holds so many. By day Carpenter is an engineer, but there's also his radio shows, his acting career, a film he's working on about Albert Ayler, his band Brian Carpenter and the Confessions where he sings and composes, and ...

Leron Thomas: Zen-Mode Humor

Read "Leron Thomas: Zen-Mode Humor" reviewed by DanMichael Reyes

The chances of four people conducting a Google search on Leron Thomas that result in all four of them to make the same conclusion about the trumpeter is low. While certain facts--like his time at High School for the Performing and Visual Arts (PVA) in Houston and The New School in New York--will remain true, arguments ...

Etienne Charles: Trumpet's First Chantwell

Read "Etienne Charles: Trumpet's First Chantwell" reviewed by DanMichael Reyes

Trinidadian-born trumpeter Etienne Charles has made it a point to share the culture of his native homeland with the world through music, whether it is writing songs on cuatro or steel pan, incorporating Kweyol chants on the opening track to his latest album Creole Soul (Culture Shock, 2013), or playing with an undeniable Caribbean bounce that ...

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.
