Francesco Cafiso Quartet: Happy Time

Read "Happy Time" reviewed by Martin Gladu

Junior Mance: Happy Time

Read "Happy Time" reviewed by C. Andrew Hovan

To the chagrin of certainly many a musician, there are some critics who equate audience appeal with commercial sell-out. It is just such an attitude that must have played a part in establishing pianist Junior Mance's position on the jazz map just at the outskirts of critical acclaim, despite wholehearted acceptance by those with a talented ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
