Randy Brecker & Eric Marienthal: Aces

Janek Gwizdala: Cooking Up A Little Bass Magic

Read "Janek Gwizdala: Cooking Up A Little Bass Magic" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Virtuosity is not something innate but is rather the result of years of dedication to one's instrument. English-born, Los Angeles-based electric bassist/composer Janek Gwizdala certainly qualifies as a virtuoso but he's the first to acknowledge that the learning--and the practice--never ends. Gwizdala knows that great technical ability, however, doesn't automatically equate with great music, and his ...

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.
