Gianluigi Trovesi

Gianluigi Trovesi has accomplished that most difficult of feats, not only for a jazzman, or a musician even, but for any artist. He managed to create a musical world that is instantly recognizable and completely original at the same time. Drawing upon an unlikely and personal combination of sources, and having undergone a growth process in which the usual steps in the development of a musical career were reversed, Trovesi bloomed relatively late as an artist. Yet today his voice as a composer and improviser ranks among those who created the notion of a "European Jazz" inspired by the American tradition, but not an imitation of it

Octets and Octopi

Read "Octets and Octopi" reviewed by Patrick Burnette


Hooray—we've made it alive through 2020 and through eight seasons of this podcast, too.

Maria Pia De Vito: Bergamo Jazz and Beyond

Read "Maria Pia De Vito: Bergamo Jazz and Beyond" reviewed by Libero Farnè


Non tutte le cantanti, attraverso l'espressione interpretativa, riescono a mettere in piena evidenza il mondo socio-culturale che sta all'origine delle singole canzoni da loro proposte. Proprio questa sembra essere la preoccupazione irrinunciabile di Maria Pia De Vito, che col suo lavoro ha sempre teso a esaltare l'interconnessione, strettissima, indispensabile, fra il livello colto e quello popolare, ...

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!
