Herbie Mann: An Amalgamation of Everything

Read "Herbie Mann:  An Amalgamation of Everything" reviewed by Bob Kenselaar


[Flauist Herbie Mann was often ahead of the trend with his wide explorations into sounds from everywhere. When I asked him in this 1978 interview where music in general was heading, he talked about a broad mix--"an amalgamation of everything"--which might be a good way to describe Mann's overall career, except that it doesn't account for ...

Herbie Hancock: The Chameleon Shows His Colors

Read "Herbie Hancock:  The Chameleon Shows His Colors" reviewed by Bob Kenselaar


[Herbie Hancock has a long history of mixing it up--from jazz to funk, pop, and everything in between.

Breakfast with Bill Evans

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!
