Jeff Lashway

Pianist Jeff Lashway hails from Pittsburgh — While he has played, toured and recorded with several artists, he is best known for his tenure with jazz legend Maynard Ferguson. Jeff was Maynard's final pianist. On his first release, "Reunion," he is reunited with longtime friend Vinnie Colaiuta. This is a rare straight-ahead session for Vinnie. Also on board is the amazing vocalist Jimmy Hall, formerly the lead singer with Wet Willie. This is an incredibly accessible, swinging CD, with stellar performances by all the musicians, including Jim Rotondi, John Allred and Jeff Rupert.

Richie Cole: Have Yourself An Alto Madness Christmas

Read "Have Yourself An Alto Madness Christmas" reviewed by Rob Rosenblum


Christmas music is a sort of sub genre of American pop, mostly maudlin and uninspiring in its lyrics, harmony and melody. Yet, it is a perennial magnet for jazz artists. On the other end of the spectrum is Richie Cole, a brash altoist and sort of a merry prankster bebop artist. Fans and critics ...

Richie Cole: Have Yourself an Alto Madness Christmas

Read "Have Yourself an Alto Madness Christmas" reviewed by Jack Bowers


Yes, there are jazz musicians who earn more bread than Richie Cole, and others who rank higher in the popularity contests that double as polls. There aren't many, however, who have more fun making music than the well-traveled alto saxophonist who, late in life, has found a place to call home in Pittsburgh, PA.

As he declares in his latest album's opening number, “I Have ...

Bria Skonberg: So is the Day

Read "So is the Day" reviewed by Nicholas F. Mondello


It's a rare talent that can straddle--and dare request membership in--the trumpet artist continuum emanating from Louis Armstrong and progressing down through his “Neo Orleans" progeny: Byron Stripling, Wynton Marsalis and Nicholas Payton (whose big band trumpet section Skonberg graces). However, with her bravura performance on So is the Day, Bria Skonberg confirms that she is ...

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!
