Asian-American Jazz & Improv

Read "Asian-American Jazz & Improv" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu


As jazz was born where cultures converged, it's not a surprise that it is the most adaptable form of music. An art form permeable since its very inception to musical traditions from other continents.

Jason Kao Hwang: Edge

Read "Edge" reviewed by Kurt Gottschalk


Violinist and composer Jason Kao Hwang has an unusual ability to create compositions that seem as if they're falling together by happenstance. Through the '90s he led the Far East Side Band, with Sang-Won Park, Joseph Daley and Satoshi Takeishi, working out a hybrid of Downtown improv and traditional Asian musics. The band never came off ...

Lenny White: Edge

Read "Edge" reviewed by Ed Kopp


I regard Lenny White's Present Tense as one of the best fusion recordings of the '90s, so I had high hopes for this one. Edge is an appropriate title for this latest from the ace drummer. It definitely bites harder than White's last two Hip Bop releases, but some tracks suffer from technology overkill. ...

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!
