Read "Blow + Beat" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Read "Vita Brevis" reviewed by John Sharpe


Vita Brevis represents maverick pianist Borah Bergman's last session before his death at age 85 in 2013.

The Joel Futterman / Alvin Fielder / Ike Levin Trio: Traveling Through Now

Read "Traveling Through Now" reviewed by Henry Smith


Free jazz has always defined itself more by what it is not than by what it is. With an embrace of complete freedom of form comes a nearly infinite realm of musical possibility that has continued to expand since its cultural relevance began in the early 1960s.

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!
