Jacob Young/David Rothenberg/Sidiki Camara: They Say Humans Exist

Read "They Say Humans Exist" reviewed by Geno Thackara

There's a lot to be said about musical excellence in versatility when it comes to guitarist Jacob Young. The Norwegian fret-acrobat came to international prominence in the early 2000s, when ECM's Manfred Eicher detected his remarkable chops and subsequently recorded and released Young's debut Evening Falls (2004) for the prestigious German label.

David Rothenberg: Whale Music

Read "Whale Music" reviewed by Kurt Gottschalk

Composer and academe David Rothenberg covered fascinating ground in his 2005 book and CD Why Birds Sing (Terra Nova), examining the functions of bird songs and employing them in his music, recording with a variety of birds around the world.

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.
