The Omer Avital Group - "Free Forever" (Part 2 of 4 Part Series)

The Omer Avital Group - "Free Forever" (Part 2 of 4 Part Series)

OVERVIEW: For those looking for a quick synopsis of Free Forever, and they don't get much pithier than this, I can satisfy your curiosity in three words: Go Get It. This album has so much to offer. When I looked at the release date, I was a bit shocked to see 2011; I've seen most of ...

Jack Reilly - "Live at Maybeck Recital Hall"

Jack Reilly - "Live at Maybeck Recital Hall"

OVERVIEW: When you read the biographies of jazz artists, many relate a common story; musical studies that began with a foundation built on classical training before giving way to jazz. And while a classical influence can still be heard in a number of contemporary musicians, see Brad Mehldau, few actually perform both classical and jazz, and ...

The Omer Avital Group - "Asking No Permission" (Part 1 of 4 Part Series)

The Omer Avital Group - "Asking No Permission" (Part 1 of 4 Part Series)

Lately I've been listening to a recording by Omer Avital that has piqued my interests. Although I own three recordings with Avital as leader, one in particular has been getting the most play while the other two sit neglected. I was trying to decide which one to review first. Reviewing his newest release would help keep ...

Helge Lien Trio - "Hello Troll"

Helge Lien Trio - "Hello Troll"

OVERVIEW: As a jazz enthusiast, I take pride in recommending albums to my friends that I believe they'll enjoy. The more finicky they are (yes Dan, that's directed at you), the more I delight in suggesting something that they can't stop raving about. Recently on one of the music forums I peruse, a member I've never ...

Monthly Classic - Lester Young and the Oscar Peterson Trio

Monthly Classic - Lester Young and the Oscar Peterson Trio

OVERVIEW: Welcome to the initial edition of “Monthly Classic!" It's a pretty straight-forward concept; since the majority of reviews on JazzJunkie focus on contemporary artists, this monthly installment will look at some well deserving albums from the yesteryear. The reviews will be closer to the standard review format (i.e. pithy with no detailed track analysis). Easy ...

Anat Fort Trio - "And If"

Anat Fort Trio - "And If"

OVERVIEW: When it comes to music, I'm all about the mood. Thankfully, the career I have allows me to listen to music almost all day long—and not softly from computer speakers or a radio; I use a set of Shure SRH840 professional studio monitoring headphones which provide great detail, instrument separation, and a level of isolation ...

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!
