Jeremy Monteiro & Alberto Marsico: Jazz-Blues Brothers

Read "Jazz-Blues Brothers" reviewed by Ian Patterson


There can't be many bands with a piano and an organ in the front line.

Read "On The Road With The Asian Jazz All-Stars Power Quartet" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Ramsey Lewis: Life is Good

Read "Ramsey Lewis: Life is Good" reviewed by Jacob Blickenstaff


Some jazz aficionados might characterize pianist Ramsey Lewis' music as a gateway into more serious jazz, as if popular Lewis albums like The In Crowd (Verve, 1965) were meant to lead novice listeners to saxophonist Ornette Coleman's The Shape of Jazz to Come(Atlantic, 1959). But Lewis' commercial successes should not be viewed as a liability to ...

Taurey Butler: Taurey Butler

Read "Taurey Butler" reviewed by Larry Taylor


Having first heard pianist Taurey Butler while vacationing in Montreal, Canada at the House of Jazz, suffice it say that it was a great night of jazz from a trio also including bassist Eric Lagacé and drummer Wali Muhammad.

Taurey Butler: Taurey Butler

Read "Taurey Butler" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


A keen interest in learning and a predilection for Oscar Peterson-style piano playing seem to be the two biggest guiding forces behind pianist Taurey Butler's life journey thus far.

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!
