Jay Danley: Ethio Jazz Volume One

Read "Ethio Jazz Volume One" reviewed by Anya Wassenberg

Complex rhythms and relentless grooves are what set music from the so-called golden era of Ethiopian jazz apart, and it's that essential and even hypnotic energy that guitarist and composer Jay Danley captures in Ethio Jazz Volume One. Arguably the most important--certainly the most recognizable--element of classic Ethiopian jazz is its bass-heavy groove patterns. ...

Jay Danley: Ethio Jazz Volume One

Read "Ethio Jazz Volume One" reviewed by Geno Thackara

The roots of Ethio-jazz may date back to the '50s, but Jay Danley and crew show that it's too fresh and funky to be chained to any era--the grooves are slick, the bass catchy, the brisk rhythms expertly woven like the strands of a rope, and the cast is clearly having a good time. The Canadian ...

Arturo O'Farrill, Chucho Valdes: Familia: Tribute to Bebo & Chico

Read "Familia: Tribute to Bebo & Chico" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Dizzy Gillespie ricordava con amarezza il modo con cui la critica jazz aveva trattato la sua collaborazione col conguero Chano Pozo, giudicandola un'eccentricità marginale. Il trombettista la giudicava invece il momento culminante della sua carriera. Quell'atteggiamento verso il cosiddetto Latin Jazz è ancora diffuso e il multiforme terreno d'incontro tra jazz e musiche dei caraibi è ...

Read "Walk to the Sea" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

La formazione che li accompagna è ampia e variegata, ovviamente ricca di percussionisti--mai però presenti tutti assieme--e in alcune tracce caratterizzata dalla presenza di cantanti--in particolare della brava ...

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.
