Read "From Seeds" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Ci sono musicisti che vivono lontani dalle luci della ribalta, che operano all'interno di un territorio limitato, latitano dai grandi eventi e dai festival più rinomati, non fanno tendenza, ma sono riconosciuti come veri maestri dai propri colleghi e producono della gran musica.

Michael Musillami Trio + 3: From Seeds

Read "From Seeds" reviewed by Robert Iannapollo

Connecticut-based Michael Musillami is a guitarist firmly rooted in the modern post-Coltrane jazz tradition but not above applying a rock-ish tone and aggression at times to good effect, as heard on the title track to From Seeds.

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.
