David Hazeltine

David Hazeltine is one of a handful of contemporary pianists who has mastered all of the major musical skills, from improvisation and technique, to accompaniment, arranging, and composition. Even more impressive, David is the rare artist able to innovate in each category. Thus it’s no surprise that he’s the most recorded contemporary jazz pianist of our time, having recorded thirty five cd’s as a leader and hundreds more as a sideman, on various major labels globally. A Milwaukee native, David was playing the clubs as a preteen, and before he’d even come of age he was already grabbing the attention and respect of jazz legends like Sonny Stitt, and Chet Baker

Cory Weeds Quartet: Day By Day

Read "Day By Day" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Cory Weeds: Day By Day

Read "Day By Day" reviewed by Pierre Giroux

As we struggle though this period of self-isolation caused by the 2020 global health pandemic, along comes Cory Weeds with a charming new quartet release anchored by pianist David Hazeltine and called quite fittingly Day By Day.

Eric Alexander: With Strings

Read "With Strings" reviewed by Jack Bowers

To paraphrase Cole Porter: “Bird did it, Chet did it... even many vocalists I bet did it..." And now tenor saxophonist Eric Alexander did it--recorded an album with strings, that is. This represents quite a departure for Alexander who is widely known as one of the more emotive and resourceful improvisers on the scene; but so ...

David Hazeltine: The Time Is Now

Read "The Time Is Now" reviewed by David A. Orthmann

David Hazeltine's thirty-fourth date as a leader juxtaposes his strengths as a composer, interpreter of standard material, improviser, as well as the capacity to converse and interact with his peers. There's something magical about the ways in which the pianist employs these skills, avoiding emphasizing one at the expense of the others, and in doing so ...

Maria’s A Winner & Sonny Is Too

Read "Maria’s A Winner & Sonny Is Too" reviewed by Marc Cohn

Sometimes in this business, you get so saturated with new music that your ears are paralyzed. The blues to the rescue, including Dexter Gordon singing with his voice, not just the saxophone. We also salute and celebrate Maria Schneider's receipt of a Jazz Masters' Award this spring from the National Endowment for the Arts. The first ...

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.
