Lift Every Voice And Sing: Twenty #BlackLives Albums That Matter

Read "Lift Every Voice And Sing: Twenty #BlackLives Albums That Matter" reviewed by Chris May

Jazz has been inextricably linked with social and political protest since at least the late 1930s, when Billie Holiday made famous the leftist songwriter and poet Abel Meeropol's “Strange Fruit." The song, which has a power to move that is undiminished by familiarity, likens the bodies of lynched African Americans to fruit hanging in trees.

Eric Dolphy: Musical Prophet: The Expanded 1963 New York Sessions

Read "Musical Prophet: The Expanded 1963 New York Sessions" reviewed by Troy Dostert

Although his iconic Out to Lunch! (Blue Note, 1964) is one of a handful of undisputed avant-garde jazz masterpieces, Eric Dolphy's stature has never quite risen fully to the level of the jazz titans. Some of this is probably due to his untimely death at age 36, just as he was reaching new creative peaks; and ...

Quarant'anni di Ictus, ventiquattro di States, diciassette come cittadino americano: con alle spalle questi numeri, se vogliamo persino pedissequi (ma significativi), Andrea Centazzo approda a un nuovo album, di rimpatriata jazzistica. Lo certifica lui stesso, affermando: “Il West Coast Chamber Jazz Trio riprende stilemi di quel genere, trasformando composizioni del mio repertorio (dall'opera lirica all'orchestra e ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
