Ola Onabule: Point Less

Read "Point Less" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Despite its title, opener “Throwaway Notion" is a catchy tune with a Pan-African groove, and very dark lyrics about the current race to the bottom in politics all ...

Partikel: Cohesion

Read "Cohesion" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Partikel è un trio inglese pianoless capitanato dal giovane sassofonista Duncan Eagles. La formazione è qui al secondo album ed è caratterizzata da un marcato dinamismo che si sviluppa attraverso composizioni (quasi tutte di Eagles) volutamente frammentarie, dai temi minimali e reiterati, eppure non prive di una narratività in filigrana. Sono esempi di questo stile - ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
