Read "Exhilaration and Other States" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Jason Campbell Stylles riversa in Exhilaration and Other States tutta la sua esuberanza stilistica, in nove brani che evidenziano tecnica superba e grande comunicativa. Al suo fianco agisce - senza mai invadere troppo la scena - Pat Bianchi all'organo Hammond, mentre l'impalcatura ritmica è affidata al batterista Lawrence Leathers, che completa un trio dalla grande flessibilità ...

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
