Gerald Cleaver & Vioilet Hour: Live at Firehouse 12

Read "Live at Firehouse 12" reviewed by Stefano Merighi

Gerald Cleaver incarna brillantemente la versione versatile del jazzista contemporaneo. Batterista e compositore, origini a Detroit, Cleaver giostra con fierezza e senso funambolico all'interno di tutti gli stili dominanti nella scena odierna. Può contribuire alla raffinatezza di gruppi accasati alla ECM, navigare a vista in organici del tutto sperimentali ("Farmers by Nature," “Black Host"), ...

Read "Michelle Lordi: Career Evolution" reviewed by R.J. DeLuke

Some artists are blessed to be born into situations where opportunities are at the ready. Education and training are easily obtainable. Maybe they have connections to the professional world, via their lineage or other friends. Even so, it's still up to them to produce and deal with the inevitable vagaries of their choice to pursue music ...

Eric Wyatt: The Golden Rule: for Sonny

Read "The Golden Rule: for Sonny" reviewed by Rob Rosenblum

The Golden Rule: For Sonny sounds at times like a Sonny Rollins cover, especially on those tunes where Rollins' nephew and frequent sideman, trombonist Clifton Anderson, joins the front line, but a second listen shows that there is a lot more than slavish idolatry here. Wyatt is a talented young tenor player, whose admiration ...

Kip Hanrahan: Crescent Moon Waning

Read "Crescent Moon Waning" reviewed by Vic Albani

Dopo tre anni di gestazione, crowdfounding e il classico perfezionismo che lo ha sempre contraddistinto (il disco è stato in realtà registrato da luglio 2015 a dicembre 2016) con uno strano scadenzario di pubblicazione si può finalmente dire a dicembre 2018 che il nuovo lavoro discografico di Kip Hanharan è finalmente disponibile in tutto il mondo. ...

Jacob Duncan: It's Alright To Dream featuring JD Allen

Read "It's Alright To Dream featuring JD Allen" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

In many instances, saxophone summits are ballsy blowouts steeped in performing jazz standards, especially when the hornists are used to leading their own bands, and they just want to get down to business in the studio. But such is not the case here, thanks to superb Louisville, KY-based saxophonist Jacob Duncan's (Norah Jones, Aretha Franklin) original ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
