Russ Lossing, Jasper Blom and More

Read "Russ Lossing, Jasper Blom and More" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

Sometimes a recording catches you by surprise. Such is the case with Swedish bassist Thomas Markusson's Open. Only one of the musicians was familiar, the pianist Naoko Sakata who moved from Japan to Sweden where she could play the kind of music that wasn't popular in Japan. Sakata definitely found the right company. Markusson is a ...

Saalfelden 2015

Read "Saalfelden 2015" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Memorabile edizione la trentaseiesima del Saalfelden Jazz Festival. Forse il caldo più consono ai mari del sud che ad una località alpina ha sciolto anche gli animi più rigidi, ha favorito la libera circolazione delle idee, ha creato un clima di condivisione e stimolo artistico. Forse gli dei della musica hanno soffiato un vento benevolo sulle ...

Evan Parker/ Matthew Shipp: Rex, Wrecks & XXX

Read "Rex, Wrecks & XXX" reviewed by John Sharpe

Few barriers remain in jazz. Certainly not geographical or generational. Even genre does not present insurmountable obstacles.

Georg Graewe/Ernst Reijseger/Gerry Hemingway: Sonic Fiction

Read "Sonic Fiction" reviewed by Marc Medwin

This long-standing and prolific international trio's debut finally gets the reissue treatment. Still quite active and stylistically amorphous, the group's first statement remains a bold one, establishing a collective aesthetic that defied boundary and categorization while making its place in history clear. The second part of “Alien Corn" is as fine a point of departure as ...

Pianist Georg Graewe Interviewed at AAJ

Pianist Georg Graewe Interviewed at AAJ

Could Georg Graewe be a chameleonic figure in the world of jazz improvisation? Listening to a selection of recordings from over the last decade or two, it soon becomes clear that this German pianist is frequently found in completely different settings, with his music consequently traversing the distance from intensely thoughtful sparseness through to throttling, high-density ...

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.
