Read "Soldiers of Light" reviewed by Anthony Shaw


In a video introducing this band, Jarmo Saari claims that in his career as Finland's most widely-recognized modern guitarist he is maybe in the wrong niche.

Jukka Perko Avara: Invisible Man

Read "Invisible Man" reviewed by Anthony Shaw

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!
