MUSICIAN Born:

Eddie Jobson

As recently as 2006, the Editor-in-Chief of Emmy magazine wrote: "The word 'genius' is bandied about a bit too freely these days, but in Jobson's case, the term not only applies, it's been used to describe him since his northern England childhood, when he was such a violin and piano prodigy that he wrote his first string quartet at 13 [and] performed with his first professional symphony at 14..." His performances and compositions have received press accolades, having been described as "brilliant" [All Music Guide], "intriguingly original" [Los Angeles Times], even, "magnificent" [London Times], and "dazzling" [The Boston Globe].

Jobson started guitar and classical piano at age 7, and violin at age 8

FAT: #awesome

Read "#awesome" reviewed by John Kelman

While the appropriately titled #awesome represents Alex Machacek's third album in six years with his (similarly witty and self-effacingly monikered) FAT (Fabulous Austrian Trio), this trifecta of virtuosic Austrian musicians goes much further back. Both bassist Raphael Preuschl and drummer Herbert Pirker appeared on roughly half of the expat-Austrian/Los Angeles-based guitarist's acclaimed 2006 Abstract Logix debut, ...

The Man Who Changed Guitar Forever!

Read "The Man Who Changed Guitar Forever!" reviewed by John Kelman

In a time when album sales are a challenge being mitigated, at least to some extent, by the release of deluxe editions and box sets, it's still more necessary than ever to grab potential listeners with imagery and words; the title of a box set can have, especially for those less than intimately familiar with the ...

Ultimate Collectors' Edition

Read "Ultimate Collectors' Edition" reviewed by John Kelman

What began as an already sizeable 16-disc box for a group that, during its relatively brief tenure, released just two ...

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.
