MUSICIAN Born:

Graham Haynes

Regarded as an innovator on cornet and flugelhorn, an extraordinary composer, and an emerging force in contemporary electronic music and world music, Graham Haynes has redefined and deconstructed that genre we still call jazz. While his main instrument is the cornet, he is by no means making jazz music these days. Haynes uses technology to create imaginative, subtle sonic environments. Even amidst electronic processing, his horn stands out, providing a level of expression that humanizes and elevates the synthetic sounds. The son of legendary jazz drummer Roy Haynes, Graham was born in 1960 and raised in Hollis, Queens, where he was surrounded by innovators (his neighbors included Roy Eldridge, Milt Jackson, and Jaki Byard)

Jerome Wilson's Best Releases of 2019

Read "Jerome Wilson's Best Releases of 2019" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

The human voice was the first musical instrument and many of my favorite releases of the past year show how powerful the voice can be, whether the singer is in a choir, part of an instrumental ensemble or leading the band. Of course there were also many purely instrumental releases that were outstanding as well.

The OGJB Quartet: Bamako

Read "Bamako" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

Over the last forty years, saxophonist Oliver Lake, cornet player Graham Haynes, bassist Joe Fonda and drummer Barry Altschul have played with one another in various configurations, but never all as one group.

OGJB Quartet & The Last Poets

Read "OGJB Quartet & The Last Poets" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

There's no way to use geographical borders to define this music called jazz. For instance, the Freequestra from Slovenia: led by acclaimed guitarist Samo Salamon— the ensemble wends its way with power and emotion through Salamon's new Free Sessions Vol.2, a rollicking excursion through the avant-garde. Or in the case of OGJB, a quartet of four ...

Wadada Leo Smith: Rosa Parks: Pure Love

Read "Rosa Parks: Pure Love" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

Wadada Leo Smith has been on a roll in the 2010s, recording and composing in several formats, including ambitious, long-form works such as the Pulitzer-nominated Ten Freedom Summers (Cuneiform, 2012,) which dealt mostly with the history of race relations in America.

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.
