Read "Here & Here & Here" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Ci sono diversi elementi propri della musica di Michael Vlatkovich (la pienezza, per esempio, peraltro qui quanto mai stemperata, riflessiva, a tratti quasi assorta) così come abbiamo imparato a conoscerli nei numerosi album da lui pubblicati in tempi recenti, ma c'è molto anche dei suoi partner, in questo lavoro inciso a Los Angeles a inizio 2014. ...

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.
