Read "Zentuary" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

Indonesian composer, guitarist and bandleader Dewa Budjana's tenth release (and his first on guitarist Steve Vai's label Favored Nations in association with Budjana's usual label, MoonJune) reviews, consolidates and advances his sound.

Dewa Budjana: Zentuary

Read "Zentuary" reviewed by John Kelman

In retrospect, all paths have truly led to this. Four increasingly impressive recordings for Moonjune Records have brought Dewa Budjana together with a variety of high profile, top-drawer jazz musicians from the American west and east coasts. Each successive album, from 2013's Dawai in Paradise through to 2015's Hasta Karma, have found the Indonesian guitarist raising ...

Vernon Reid & Masque: Other True Self

Read "Other True Self" reviewed by John Kelman

Vernon Reid has been always been a stylistic chameleon. Straddling many musical worlds, he's just as likely to record with Public Enemy as James Blood Ulmer, Jack Bruce or Lafayette Gilchrist.

Terry Bozzio + Metropole Orkest: Chamber Works

Read "Chamber Works" reviewed by John Kelman

Terry Bozzio is perhaps best known as a chops-laden drummer who's more at home in the pop/rock and fusion worlds. Chamber Works, which teams him with Netherlands' Metropole Orkest--like guitarist Mike Keneally's similar collaboration on last year's The Universe Will Provide--demonstrates that Bozzio is about much, much more.

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.
