Asuka Kakitani Jazz Orchestra: Bloom

Read "Bloom" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Qualcuno sta disperatamente cercando di tenere in vita la tradizione delle orchestre jazzistiche, malgrado la crisi dei mondi, le lamentele dei 'bottom line managers' che sono solo capaci di dire che i conti non tornano. Bella forza, loro guardano solo alla riga finale del bilancio e non hanno la più pallida idea di cosa ci sia ...

Read "Silver Streams" reviewed by Nicholas F. Mondello

If there is a stream of any kind that runs through Silver Streams by The Joe La Barbera Quintet, it is the flow of energy--intense to the point of ignition--that is tapped. No meandering “Old Man River," this team drinks from the source with gusto and unified creativity. That shouldn't be a surprise, since La Barbera ...

Ravi Coltrane: Spirit Fiction

Read "Spirit Fiction" reviewed by Greg Simmons

It's easy to imagine the double-takes that must have occurred when introductions were being made around New York in the early 1990s. “What'd you say your last name is, son?" Let's face it, if you're walking around with the name of a God, your last name is Coltrane and your first name is not John, and ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
