Frank LoCrasto

Born:

Since he was a landlocked Dallas, Texas kid, beach culture has held a tropical mystique for pianist/composer Frank LoCrasto. Family trips documented by camcorder videos, featuring slinky jazz-fusion soundtracks are etched in the Brooklyn-based artist’s memory. In his mind, there will always be a fantasyland replete with wicker furniture, pristine beaches, swaying palm trees, the smell of vanilla-scented suntan lotion, and breathtaking aqua water expanses. These days, LoCrasto uses his imagination, evocative musicality, prodigious chops, and eclectic sonic palette to create dreamy musical locales

Ben Flocks: Mask of the Muse

Read "Mask of the Muse" reviewed by Geno Thackara


It was probably inevitable that the start of the 2020's would see something of a comeback for the Roaring Twenties of the last century. You could say that puts Ben Flocks ahead of the curve for releasing this homage to mark the change of decade... well, except that it's not just rooted in the previous gilded ...

Trumpet Summit: Jeremy Pelt, Brad Goode and Terell Stafford

Read "Trumpet Summit: Jeremy Pelt, Brad Goode and Terell Stafford" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey


The spirit of trumpeter Miles Davis remains very much a creative quasar furnishing a certain gravitational pull to a considerable population of bodies orbiting it. On the outer edges of this quasar's orbit are the (relatively) young trumpeters who emerged after the pedantic eclipse of Wynton Marsalis occurred. Three of these orbiting horn players have released ...

Jeremy Pelt: Water and Earth

Read "Water and Earth" reviewed by Glenn Astarita


Change is often a precursor for innovation. After many years of straddling modern mainstream, and progressive jazz via his burgeoning solo career and first-call session duties, trumpeter Jeremy Pelt leans a few notches toward the jazz-fusion spectrum on Water and Earth. However, the artist doesn't take matters to the extreme and serves up a compellingly divergent ...

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!
