Read "Live At The  Century City Playhouse – Los Angeles, 1979" reviewed by Mark Corroto


If you were born yesterday, you can be forgiven for believing the West Coast jazz scene begins with Kamasi Washington. As with most things related to jazz, New York is the focus, with slight consideration of Chicago. The rich history of Los Angeles' creative community, including the early Ornette Coleman ensembles, Dexter Gordon, Horace Tapscott, Frank ...

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!
