Jazz is Mod: An Introduction to the Mod Jazz Series

Read "Jazz is Mod: An Introduction to the Mod Jazz Series" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

In England there is a solid tradition for crate digging and appreciation of American music. In fact, the whole idea of Northern Soul is based on the concept of English hipsters digging out rare soul gems in the sixties and giving them new life on the dance floor. However, the English mod scene, as it was ...

Read "Come Over" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

Gina Kronstadt has graced recordings by many musical giants, including Dr John, Charlie Haden, Rod Stewart and Aretha Franklin. Most of the time it's her talent as a violinist that's called upon.

Graham Bond: Wading in Murky Waters

Read "Graham Bond: Wading in Murky Waters" reviewed by Duncan Heining

Organist and saxophonist Graham Bond was the most important and influential musical pioneer to emerge from British jazz in the 1960s. High praise indeed, but in his case it is warranted. His legacy might be defined less by the music he recorded and more by the impact he had on subsequent generations of musicians. However, that ...

Bonerama: Shake It Baby

Read "Shake It Baby" reviewed by Wade Luquet

Bonerama is fun. Bonerama is powerful. And in their first full-length studio CD, they have made a switch from their previous live recordings of brass-infused funk to brass infused-rock.

Theo Jackson: Jericho

Read "Jericho" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

Singer, pianist and songwriter Theo Jackson lives in Oxford, of university fame, and his debut album Jericho is named after an area of the city rather than the ancient town that suffered so much from an excessively loud horn section. There's no need to fear excessively loud horns here: Jackson and his quartet build drama with ...

Club D'ElfElectric Moroccoland / So BelowFace Pelt Records2011 Boston-based Club D'Elf describes itself as a “Moroccan-dosed psychedelic dub and jazz collective." It is the sort of band that gives self-medication a good name, and it will reconfigure your synapses, in a good way, if you let it. ...

Chris May's Best Releases of 2010

Read "Chris May's Best Releases of 2010" reviewed by Chris May

Here are my favorite dozen new releases of 2010. It was an outstanding year on many fronts. There was ravishing lyricism from saxophonists Nat Birchall and Stan Sulzmann and beyond-touristic flamenco and Indian infusions from bassist Dave Holland and singer Amit Chaudhuri, the politically charged complete works of Fela Anikulapo Kuti and the delicious ...

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.
