Peter Erskine: Dr. Um

Read "Dr. Um" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


It would appear that this project has awakened the Peter Erskine of yore, the drummer who became legend while cresting the waves of fusion with Weather Report and Steps Ahead. In recent years Erskine's drumming has been spare, elegant, open, and, in enough instances, lightly swinging. If one word would come to mind ...

Read "Disguise" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

There's still the judicious funk grooves, the tight arrangements, and catchy and distinctive melodies that make for an engaging and edifying listening experience. And she's still a wonderfully soulful saxophonist. These are quintet, ...

Janek Gwizdala: Cooking Up A Little Bass Magic

Read "Janek Gwizdala: Cooking Up A Little Bass Magic" reviewed by Ian Patterson


Virtuosity is not something innate but is rather the result of years of dedication to one's instrument. English-born, Los Angeles-based electric bassist/composer Janek Gwizdala certainly qualifies as a virtuoso but he's the first to acknowledge that the learning--and the practice--never ends. Gwizdala knows that great technical ability, however, doesn't automatically equate with great music, and his ...

Read "Paul Augustin: Putting Penang On The Jazz Map" reviewed by Ian Patterson


Most jazz festival directors would agree that survival is the name of the game in the first years.

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!
