My son, on the other hand, is planning to study music in college after he finishes high school. Though it would fill his ...

Il nuovo album del chitarrista romano Giovanni Palombo, quarto realizzato per la label tedesca Acoustic Music Records, ci fornisce ancora una volta l'opportunità di (ri)scoprire un artista ancora troppo poco conosciuto, come del resto molti altri specialisti del suo strumento, la chitarra acustica, relegato spesso in una nicchia per specialisti.

A Madman’s Approach To Music And Why Can't Music Be Like A Tree?

Read "A Madman’s Approach To Music And Why Can't Music Be Like A Tree?" reviewed by Duncan Heining

"Art alone makes life possible." --Joseph Beuys. The Glasgow Improvisers' Orchestra is unique. It's an over-used word, I know, but in this case fully justified. GIO are unique in so many ways--in the way they formed, the way they make decisions, in their make-up, how they work and most importantly how they sound. They ...

Impariamo a suonare la chitarra fingerstyle

Read "Impariamo a suonare la chitarra fingerstyle" reviewed by Mario Calvitti

Ben Tyree: Thoughtform Variations

Read "Thoughtform Variations" reviewed by Ian Patterson

On the face of it, an all-acoustic solo album may seem like something of a departure from guitarist Ben Tyree's eclectic, contemporary New York fusion of re:vision (Sonic Architectures, 2011), with his BT3 trio. Yet, in essence, these eight tracks share an equally wide arc of influences and the same spirit of adventure. Though not as ...

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.
