John Raymond

John Raymond is making a name for himself as one of the most promising, genre-bending musicians in jazz today. With a singular voice as a trumpeter, flugelhornist and composer, Raymond is “steering jazz in the right direction” (Downbeat Magazine) by pushing its boundaries, seamlessly incorporating indie-rock, folk and electronic influences into his music. “This is jazz, yes, but jazz with an open mind." (Something Else). He has performed with jazz artists such as Kurt Rosenwinkel, Billy Hart, Linda Oh, and Dave King, and has also recorded or performed with Sara Bareilles, Cory Wong and S

Orrin Evans and the Captain Black Big Band: The Intangible Between

Read "The Intangible Between" reviewed by Paul Rauch

Pianist Orrin Evans has a deep understanding of the unshakeable bond between fellowship, humanity and the creative process. That knowledge has guided him through creating a remarkable catalog of music as both a leader and sideman, along the way, experiencing the fellowship of a collective of musicians he often refers to as “The Village."

Luke Gillespie: Moving Mists

Read "Moving Mists" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Insegnante di piano jazz all'Indiana University e leader di un trio, Luke Gillespie ha mostrato in altri dischi di saper rileggere con inventiva il songbook jazzistico, aggiungendo personali doti d'autore. Vive e opera lontano da New York in una dimensione apparata ma il suo pianismo non è inferiore a quello di artisti più noti. Nel suo ...

John Raymond and Real Feels: Live Vol. 2

Read "Live Vol. 2" reviewed by Peter J. Hoetjes

After releasing his album Joy Ride (Sunnyside Records) early in 2018, John Raymond took his band Real Feels on the road to experiment with the songs they created. Their philosophy seems to be predicated on the song rather than the instrument, as of utmost importance. Thankfully, none of the tunes they play here seem rigid or ...

Dan Bilawsky's Best Releases of 2018

Read "Dan Bilawsky's Best Releases of 2018" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Every little bit of the year 2018 will soon take form as memory--first recent, then distant--but the fine music gifted to us in those twelve months will be forever present, living on in ears, hearts and minds. I had the pleasure of hearing north of 400 albums this past year, and I had the privilege of ...

Kind Folk: Why Not

Read "Why Not" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Back in 2014, trumpeter John Raymond, alto saxophonist Alex LoRe, bassist Noam Wiesenberg, and drummer Colin Stranahan gathered in a tiny apartment in Brooklyn to test out their chemistry and let the music flow. Four years later, after some more sporadic get-togethers and a bump or two in the road, we have their debut.

Orrin Evans: Presence

Read "Presence" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

You have to wonder how many outlets a restless creative like hard bopping pianist Orrin Evans needs to fully express himself. Twenty-five or so albums into a legacy that finds him as the newest member of The Bad Plus after years of riffing and ripping it up with The Mingus Big Band, experimenting with soul/jazz Luv ...

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.
