Irene Schweizer / Hamid Drake: Celebration

Read "Celebration" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

The pair has played and recorded together often. The opener, “A Former Dialogue," introduces us to a drum thunder and a splattering of fat piano-crafted raindrops. ...

Dan Phillips Quartet: Converging Tributaries

Read "Converging Tributaries" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Lawrence D. “Butch” Morris: Possible Universe (Conduction 192)

Read "Possible Universe (Conduction 192)" reviewed by Mark Corroto

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!
