Read "Modern Big Bands: Christian McBride, Marshal Gilkes, Gerald Wilson, Brian Lynch and More" reviewed by Russell Perry


Since the early days of jazz, composers, arrangers, and players have sought out large ensembles for their potential for rich expression and vibrant musical color. Even in the heyday of small-group dominated bebop, Dizzy Gillespie formed a big band as soon as he could. To this day, while few bands can hold together as touring units, ...

Ed Palermo: A Lousy Day In Harlem

Read "A Lousy Day In Harlem" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


Il 12 agosto 2018, sessant'anni dopo la celebre foto di Art Kane “A Great Day in Harlem," Ed Palermo s'è fatto fotografare di fronte allo stesso palazzo in pietra marrone.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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!
