Jimi Hendrix

Guitarist, singer, and songwriter. Born Johnny Allen Hendrix (later changed to James Marshall) on November 27, 1942, in Seattle, Washington. Learning to play guitar as a teenager, Hendrix grew up to become a rock guitar legend. He began his career by playing in a number of bands in his youth. Hendrix later enlisted in the United States Army in 1961 and became as a paratrooper. Even as a soldier, Hendrix found time for music, creating a band named The King Casuals.

Jimi Hendrix Experience: Live In Maui

Read "Live In Maui" reviewed by Doug Collette

It's been quite the circuitous route from the second official posthumous Jimi Hendrix release Rainbow Bridge (Reprise, 1971) to Music, Money, Madness... Live In Maui. And while video component of the 2020 Jimi Hendrix archive release seems like much ado about nothing in its examination of the aforementioned film, the concert content of the Experience reminds ...

Giant-size American artists were unavoidably absent, but ...

Rahsaan Roland Kirk: An Alternative Top Ten Albums Guaranteed To Bend Your Head

Read "Rahsaan Roland Kirk: An Alternative Top Ten Albums Guaranteed To Bend Your Head" reviewed by Chris May

Jazz musicians are rarely called shamanistic but the description fits Rahsaan Roland Kirk precisely. Clad in black leather trousers and heavy duty shades (he was blind from the age of two), a truckload of strange looking horns strung round his neck—two or three of which he often played simultaneously--twisting, shaking and otherwise contorting his body, stamping ...

Soft Machine: Live At The Baked Potato

Read "Live At The Baked Potato" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

European progressive jazz-rock ensemble Soft Machine seems to have run through more lives than even the luckiest tomcat. They've been first-rate musicians at every incarnation, and it's heartening to hear John Etheridge (guitar), John Marshall (drums), Roy Babbington (bass) and relative newcomer Theo Travis (piano, flute, saxophone) sound so vibrant as well as accomplished on Live ...

ARTICLE: MEET THE STAFF

Meet Doug Collette

Read "Meet Doug Collette" reviewed by AAJ Staff

Doug Collette's pedigree for crafting honest and carefully-considered music analysis lies in a nearly fifty year devotion to contemporary rock and roll, jazz and the blues. During this time, his zeal for writing has grown to (almost) equal his devotion to the musical experiences he has documented from his astute observations of records, videos, books and ...

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.
