Maria Schneider, George Gruntz, Jim McNeely and Carla Bley were among the pacesetters, followed in short order by such (relative) newcomers ...

Tom Goehring: A Reflected Journey

Read "A Reflected Journey" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Jamie Begian Big Band: Big Fat Grin

Read "Big Fat Grin" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Il chitarrista Jamie Begian ha fondato questa big band nel 1998 e dopo dodici anni e mille difficoltà arriva alla sua seconda prova discografica. Un segnale ben preciso che l'arte della big band non è più allineata con i tempi ed il mercato discografico moderni. Eppure Begian ha fatto le cose nel modo giusto: ha raccolto ...

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.
