Peter Eldridge and Kenny Werner: Somewhere

Read "Somewhere" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Approximately ten years ago, pianist Kenny Werner invited his Berklee colleague, vocalist Peter Eldridge, to the studio for a library music recording session. When Eldridge arrived, expecting an intimate duo setup, he received the shock of a lifetime: Werner was there with an orchestra, 40 deep. That curve ball, which Eldridge, of course, took in stride, ...

Paul McCandless: Morning Sun

Read "Morning Sun" reviewed by Jack Bowers

First things first. The full title of this decorous CD is Morning Sun: Adventures with Oboe--Paul McCandless with the Paul Winter Consort: A Retrospective.

Winston Byrd: Once Upon a Time Right Now

Read "Once Upon a Time Right Now" reviewed by Nicholas F. Mondello

"Once Upon A Time" usually prefaces a fairy tale, Aesopian fable, or, a Hollywood action movie.

An aural feast where Byrd is Exec Chef, the production delivers superbly-performed ...

Alberto Mizrahi: Matzah to Menorah: A Holiday Jazz Celebration

Read "Matzah to Menorah: A Holiday Jazz Celebration" reviewed by Hrayr Attarian

There is a well-established legacy of fusing the sacred with the secular in jazz. Pianist Duke Ellington's Concert of Sacred Music (RCA, 1966) is, perhaps, the most ceremonial example of this but there is a myriad of other recordings. Guitarist Grant Green's gospel-inspired Feelin' the Spirit (Blue Note, 1962), pianist/harpist Alice Coltrane's exploration of Hinduism and ...

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.
