One famously curious artist, David Bowie, identified with this spirit in Henry during the making of The Next Day, on which Henry played piano and keyboards. Bowie then chose him as arranger and musical director to help reimagine his classic songs and to shape new ones, creating the sound for what would be Bowie’s final work, Lazarus. Henry immerses himself in original projects and creative collaborations expressing his own voice

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.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
