Michael Thomas: Event Horizon

Read "Event Horizon" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

Jimmy Katz seems to really be onto something with his Giant Step Arts label. Begun in 2018, the label has established a tradition of recording live performances by modern jazz musicians given complete freedom of repertoire and personnel. That approach has produced several outstanding releases including, earlier this year, The Concert: 12 Musings For Isabella, (Giant ...

Eric Alexander: Leap of Faith

Read "Leap of Faith" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Eric Alexander è uno dei massimi tenoristi della sua generazione. In oltre quaranta dischi da leader e un centinaio di collaborazioni, ha evidenziato piena adesione al modern mainstream, privilegiando l'esibizione in quartetti o quintetti con la tipica sezione ritmica comprendente un pianista (spesso il suo mentore Harold Mabern) o talvolta un chitarrista (Pat Martino o Peter ...

Eric Alexander: Leap of Faith

Read "Leap of Faith" reviewed by Friedrich Kunzmann

Acclaimed saxophonist Eric Alexander needs no special introduction. His pioneering work in the jazz world has been an inspiration to many of his peers since the early 90s. On this special chordless endeavour—featuring the chops of Doug Weiss on bass and drummer Jonathan Blake whose own recording in a very similar chordless constellation was likewise recently ...

Jason Palmer: Rhyme And Reason

Read "Rhyme And Reason" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Trombettista rigoroso e dalla tecnica scintillante, tra i migliori della sua generazione, Jason Palmer non gode della popolarità che merita. Una causa può essere la collocazione appartata di insegnante al Berklee College of Music e al New England Conservatory. Nello stile ricorda Clifford Brown, che ha rappresentato la sua massima influenza formativa, e ...

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.
