Ain't Nothin' in Chicago for a Monkey Bastard to Do

Read "Ain't Nothin' in Chicago for a Monkey Bastard to Do" reviewed by Patrick Burnette


Mike is from the Chicago-land area, Pat spent his salad days in Hyde Park--maybe the bastards are a bit biased, but they love talking about the Windy City. It doesn't hurt that it has a long, noble, somewhat left-of-center history concerning jazz. Anyway, this time they explore the work of a couple of tenor titans, little-known ...

Harrison Bankhead Sextet: Morning Sun, Harvest Moon

Read "Morning Sun, Harvest Moon" reviewed by Raul d'Gama Rose


Harrison Bankhead's uniqueness is not restricted solely to his bass playing, which is touched by the melodicism of Ray Brown and the authority and inventiveness of Charles Mingus in a voice singularly his own. Bankhead is a composer with a sensibility finely attuned to a painterly impressionism, while being unafraid to fly in the face of ...

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!
