Ally Venable: Heart Of Fire

Read "Heart Of Fire" reviewed by Doug Collette

The virtues so readily apparent on guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Ally Venable's last album, Puppet Show (Connor Ray Music, 2018), remain fully in evidence on her Ruf Records debut. It is telling, however, that for Heart Of Fire, the sultry poses she struck on the cover of the previous LP give way to those focusing on the way the ...

Ghalia Volt: One Woman Band

Read "One Woman Band" reviewed by Doug Collette

As pictured on the cover of One Woman Band, songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Ghalia Volt radiates such a commanding presence that it's hard not to imagine the array of musical instruments displayed alongside her coming to life all on their own.

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 ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
