MUSICIAN Born:

Eric Clapton

Eric Patrick Clapton was born on 30 March 1945 in his grandparents’ home at 1 The Green, Ripley, Surrey, England. He was the son of 16-year-old Patricia Molly Clapton (b. 7 January 1929, d. March 1999) and Edward Walter Fryer (b. 21 March 1920, d. 1985), a 24-year-old Canadian soldier stationed in England during World War II. Before Eric was born, Fryer returned to his wife in Canada. It was extraordinarily difficult for an unmarried 16-year-old to raise a child on her own in the mid-1940s. Pat’s parents, Rose and Jack Clapp, stepped in as surrogate parents and raised Eric as their own

Read "Dedicated To Les Paul" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Les Paul (1915 to 2009) was one of the innovators in the creation of the solid body electric guitar. Paul enjoyed a long and successful career—performing and recording from 1945, backing Bing Crosby and the Andrews Sisters, offering up a bunch of singles (this was pre-33rpm album days) with his wife Mary Ford, playing with Chet ...

Dave Mason: Alone Together Again

Read "Alone Together Again" reviewed by Doug Collette

At the time of its release in July of 1970, Dave Mason's debut solo album, Alone Together (Blue Thumb Records, 1970), was the proverbial perfect storm, a flash-point of both creative art and commerce that remains a singular object of fascination in the annals of contemporary rock. Produced by label co-founder Tommy LiPuma, in conjunction with ...

Derek Trucks: Chops, Romance & Dance

Read "Derek Trucks: Chops, Romance & Dance" reviewed by Alan Bryson

It's a good bet that most of us have heard people say they don't like jazz, or even worse, drop the H-bomb, “I hate jazz." If you choose to engage, the key is to tread lightly and tailor an approach that considers the tastes and sensibilities of the other person. The “So You Don't Like Jazz" ...

The Led Zeppelin Papers - Physical Graffiti, Deluxe Edition

Read "The Led Zeppelin Papers - Physical Graffiti, Deluxe Edition" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

It may just be coincidence, but there seems to have existed a phenomenon in classic rock recording where prominent artists begin a creative evolution on a single LP release, chronologically following it up with a definitive artistic statement as a double album set, creating a sort of lopsided diptych of certain brilliance. Notable examples include:

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
