Jim McAuley: Gongfarmer 36

Read "Gongfarmer 36" reviewed by John Eyles

As its title suggests, Gongfarmer 36 is the belated follow-up to guitarist Jim McAuley's Gongfarmer 18 (Nine Winds Records, 2005). But the seven-year delay is not surprising, as additions to McAuley's discography tend to arrive sporadically--the last being Vignes (Long Song, 2009), with the wonderful Acoustic Guitar Trio which brought him together with Nels Cline and ...

Jim McAuley: The Ultimate Frog

Read "The Ultimate Frog" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

The Ultimate Frog raccoglie quattro differenti sessioni di registrazioni nelle quali il chitarrista e compositore californiano Jim McAuley si confronta, musicalmente parlando, con altrettanti fuoriclasse dell'improvvisazione.

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
