Jack Walrath

An often exciting, thoughtful trumpeter and good arranger, Jack Walrath has steadily gained attention and exposure through his contributions to outstanding sessions. Walrath began playing trumpet at nine, and studied at Berklee in the mid- and late '60s while working with other students and backing up R&B vocalists. He moved to the West Coast in 1969, and co-led the bands Change with Gary Peacock, and Revival with Glenn Ferris. Walrath also toured a year with Ray Charles. Walrath relocated to New York in the early 70s, and worked with Latin bands before playing with Charles Mingus from 1974 to 1979, an association that gave him a certain amount of recognition

Jay Thomas: We Always Knew

Read "Jay Thomas: We Always Knew" reviewed by Paul Rauch

Legacy is a fleeting notion. It is incomprehensible in real time when a career hits high points, when certain doors open to quantitative opportunity. Jay Thomas can tell you a thing or two about that, based on his own personal experience as a jazz artist over half a century. His story includes playing on the Seattle ...

John Daversa: Wobbly Dance Flower

Read "Wobbly Dance Flower" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

"Wobbly Dance Flower" is the title of one of the tracks on this CD but it also captures the frisky, goofy vibe of the entire disc. Trumpeter John Daversa writes sophisticated music with catchy melodies that share the off-beat, slightly wacky humor of musicians like Matt Wilson and Jack Walrath. The sounds and approaches ...

It started, blessedly, when the president did not tweet out a series of early morning fabrications/accusations to befuddle the free world. And it could only get better from there: It was Earth Day!

I Nuovi Protagonisti dell'Orchestrazione - 1: Darcy James Argue - Ryan Truesdell - Orrin Evans

Read "I Nuovi Protagonisti dell'Orchestrazione - 1: Darcy James Argue - Ryan Truesdell - Orrin Evans" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Dopo la morte di Gil Evans e Thad Jones nella seconda metà degli anni ottanta e la progressiva uscita di scena di George Russell, il ruolo del compositore/orchestratore nel jazz ha sofferto di un gap generazionale. Meno marcato di quanto è apparso pubblicamente ma comunque consistente. Anche se negli anni novanta già operavano figure del calibro ...

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.
