Various Artists: Cincinnati Jazz Collection, Volume III: The Blues

Read "Cincinnati Jazz Collection, Volume III: The Blues" reviewed by Jim Santella


Like most other metropolitan areas around the world, Cincinnati has a fruitful jazz and blues scene. Where would we be without this kind of tradition? The songs tell stories. Long, detailed stories with just enough innuendo to make it interesting. And when that organist, pianist, guitarist, or saxophonist stretches out... it’s time for passion. This is ...

Various Artists: J-Curve Cincinnati Jazz Collection Volume II

Read "J-Curve Cincinnati Jazz Collection Volume II" reviewed by Jim Santella


Recorded one year after volume one, J-Curve’s second Cincinnati jazz sampler matches the high quality of musicianship and free, swinging attitude of the earlier adventure. Its Midwestern United States location makes Cincinnati an unusual candidate for one who has provided a century of hot jazz. However, three features stand out to allow fair competition between New ...

William Menefield: Big Will Leaps In

Read "Big Will Leaps In" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Menefield’s debut album, Big Will Leaps In, has “blossoming superstar” written all over it. As a pianist Menefield unearths a range of maturity, depth and insight that would be remarkable at any age, and is ...

William Menefield: Big Will Leaps In

Read "Big Will Leaps In" reviewed by Jim Santella


Acoustic piano trios are the backbone of mainstream jazz, allowing for a proper balance of both expository and extemporaneous material. The three artists have distinct roles that require cohesion and “big ears." Cincinnati veteran Art Gore and bassist Tyrone Wheeler make fine partners for the teenaged William Menefield. Born to a musical family, the talented pianist ...

Phil DeGreg: The Green Gate

Read "The Green Gate" reviewed by Jack Bowers


While I’ve always found it difficult (if not impossible) to identify pianists in a blindfold test (okay, I think I could name Oscar Peterson, Erroll Garner and a few others), I do know enough to separate the sheep from the goats — in other words, I think I can tell who the players are, who swings ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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!
