Read "50th Anniversary Blue Notes – August edition" reviewed by Marc Cohn

During last month's Blue Note anniversary show we ran out of time. So this week we catch up with a Hank Mobley session for Blue Note from July 31, 1970 (well, that date was 'almost-August' anyway), after opening the show with mostly twenty-first century music. Then, it's on to Grant Green, live in Newark and Wayne ...

Read "An Urban Myth: Chris Potter Circuits Quartet feat. Craig Taborn at Porto's Casa da Música" reviewed by Arian Bagheri Pour Fallah

Sax Strike: The Sound of Jazz without Saxophones

Read "Sax Strike: The Sound of Jazz without Saxophones" reviewed by Jennifer DeMeritt

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.
