Ben Sidran at Dazzle

Read "Ben Sidran at Dazzle" reviewed by Geoff Anderson

Ben Sidran Dazzle Denver, CO October 23, 2019 Ben Sidran is a quadruple threat. Many great musicians claim the trifecta of vocals, instrumental chops and songwriting. Sidran has all those. On top of all that, Sidran adds philosophizing. Or maybe it's storytelling. Or maybe both of those things. Wednesday night, Sidran ...

King Crimson at Paramount Theatre

Read "King Crimson at Paramount Theatre" reviewed by Geoff Anderson

King Crimson Paramount Theatre Denver, CO September 8, 2019 Every band should have three drummers. No, wait, every band needs three drummers.

Somi at Dazzle

Read "Somi at Dazzle" reviewed by Geoff Anderson

Somi Dazzle Denver, CO January 16, 2019 A case can be made that all Western popular music can trace its origins to Africa. Even if that's a bit of an exaggeration, it's not when it comes to vocalist/songwriter Somi. She was born in Illinois, but her parents were immigrants from Rwanda ...

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.
