Jeff Richman & Friends: Fusion for Miles, A Guitar Tribute: A Bitchin' Brew

Read "Fusion for Miles, A Guitar Tribute: A Bitchin' Brew" reviewed by John Kelman

In a nutshell, you need to be relevant and reverent without coming off as simply a poor carbon copy. Paying respect ...

Jeff Richman & Friends: Live at the Baked Potato, Volume 1

Read "Live at the Baked Potato, Volume 1" reviewed by Todd S. Jenkins

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.
