Born:

The natural affinity of music and visual art has rarely ever been expressed as vividly as in the visual imagery created by noted jazz saxophonist, Ivo Perelman. Born 12/01/1961 in Sao Paulo, Brazil, he came to the United States in 1981 to pursue a musical career.

Unable to tour and record with their various ensembles, many artists prepared solo projects (some recorded before the virus struck). Most of the music is very personal, as if the artists are asking ...

Ivo Perelman: Special Edition Box: Procedural Language

Read "Special Edition Box: Procedural Language" reviewed by Mark Corroto


Ivo Perelman and Matthew Shipp: how many duo recordings have their been? Five? A dozen? More like sixteen, and that's not taking into account the double, triple, quadruple releases, nor Perelman/Shipp's recordings in trio, quartet, and quintet formats. The numbers boggle the mind, and truth be told, flatten the wallet. While you may ask why so ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
