Joel Ross

For the past several years, Joel Ross has been refining an expression that’s true to his sound and his generation. In 2019, the vibraphonist-composer released his anticipated Blue Note debut KingMaker to eruptive critical acclaim. He’s topped the DownBeat Critics Poll Rising Star category for vibraphone and in 2017, he became one of the youngest artists to receive a coveted Residency Commission from The Jazz Gallery. With the release of Who Are You? (Blue Note, 2020), Ross shares the culmination of a year-long exercise in experimenting and risk-taking on and off the bandstand. Inspired by mentor Stefon Harris’ empathetic, whole-self approach to articulation, Ross has adopted an entire ethos dependent on truthful, ongoing communication

La vita e la musica di Makaya McCraven

Read "La vita e la musica di Makaya McCraven" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Un ritratto di Makaya McCraven deve necessariamente considerare la mutazione antropologica che è avvenuta nell'ultima generazione di musicisti afroamericani che si spingono oltre la tradizionale sintesi tra jazz e generi popolari, usando creativamente la tecnologia sperimentata nell'ultimo trentennio dai DJ e produttori dell'hip-hop e della club culture. Le musiche di questo tumultuoso torrente ...

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!
