Don Redman: Setting the Template

Read "Don Redman: Setting the Template" reviewed by Jim Gerard

As someone who came to jazz as a young man in the 1970s, I can attest that subsequent generations of both its chroniclers and, even sadder, its practitioners, have succumbed to the peculiarly and regrettable American disease of a-historicism.

Read "At the Trianon Ballroom, 1954" reviewed by Dave Nathan

During what turned out to be an abortive attempt to recapture its glory days, Chicago's Trianon Ballroom reopened and booked a very good Horace Henderson Orch. into the once highly popular, ornate dance palace.

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.
