Kristen Mather de Andrade

Born:

Lightbulb moments can strike at any time. Eclectic virtuosic clarinetist Kristen Mather de Andrade had reached a career milestone in being years into a full-time prestigious position with the West Point Band when she had a seismic artistic epiphany. After playing a program of Brazilian music on a livestream, she decided it was time to record her full-length debut album, aptly-titled Clarão which translates from Portuguese to mean “flash of light.” The New York-based artist’s career has been defined by immersing herself in a broad array of musical worlds and cultures, from the classical canon to world music, and beyond

Musician

Gillian Margot

Born:

Following her acclaimed debut Black Butterfly, Toronto native Gillian Margot builds on her unique and emotive interpretations of American Standards with Power Flower, a deeply soothing homage to her influences in the Jazz, Pop, and Funk of the 70s and 80s. Margot spent two and a half years building the work; selecting seasoned titans Geoffrey Keezer, Billy Kilson, Seamus Blake, Ingrid Jensen, and Munyungo Jackson, and working the arrangements and recordings to her complete satisfaction. Included in the liner notes is the phrase ‘All vocals recorded without use of any pitch correction technology,’ which sums up the care and attention she has paid to Power Flower

Musician

Halley Elwell

Born:

Halley Elwell is a songwriter whose memorable melodies, vibrant imagery and wit pull the ear somewhere old and new. Elwell boldly exhibits this in her song Sisters on the J Train, recently named a John Lennon Songwriting Contest finalist in the jazz catagory. Elwell wrote the song after riding the J train in San Francisco with a group of praying nuns. “At the time I was a confused and somewhat lost 20-something observing the colorful but divided lives of people in San Francisco. At the beginning my first instinct was to bristle and question, but ultimately the prayers of the sisters on the J train ended up being an unlikely gift that morning.” Weaving tales of travel and nostalgia into lush and layered rhythms, Elwell’s upcoming EP, Last of What I Know, pays homage to the sounds of late 1960’s and 1970s songwriters like Laura Nyro

Musician

Jim Altamore

Jim Altamore is a versatile singer of popular standards from what is known today as the Great American Songbook. Jim grew up during a time of transition……the music world was changing with the arrival of the Beatles. However, his family always appreciated the true American music of jazz and swing and kept him in touch with the great singers like Sinatra, Ella and Bennett. Jim’s indoctrination in the world of music started on the right path….and it never changed! Fortunately, Jim met some jazz musicians who encouraged him to pursue his dream of becoming a professional singer. He worked hard at his craft and eventually let the public know that he was ready to sing for them

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!
