Jae Sinnett: Zero To 60

Read "Zero To 60" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


The title of this record is something of a double entendre, referencing both the arrival of a milestone birthday for drummer-composer Jae Sinnett and the specific decade that helped influence his outlook on music, art, and life in general. But don't let that information fool you. This isn't some nostalgia-filled date with flower power filigree. This ...

Jae Sinnett: It's Telling...A Drummer's Perspective

Read "It's Telling...A Drummer's Perspective" reviewed by John Barron

The music is challenging, yet saxophonist Steve Wilson, pianist Allen Farnham and bassist Terry Burrell, all long-time Sinnett collaborators, perform flawlessly through ...

Jae Sinnett: Off The Myopic Avenue

Read "Off The Myopic Avenue" reviewed by Todd S. Jenkins


Master drummer Jae Sinnett strikes more gold with his sixth album, full of adventurous time signatures, ear-grabbing melodies and no small dose of funk. The ensemble includes keyboardist Allan Farnham, bassist Terry Burrell and saxophonist Elias Haslanger (who has recorded several excellent albums on his own, including 1997's For The Moment). The tracks include a fun-spirited ...

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!
