Preludes most often feature a limited number of ...

Chet Doxas: Big Sky

Read "Big Sky" reviewed by John Kelman

As much as a recent Ottawa, Canada performance was an intimate opportunity for local fans to see John Abercrombie, it was equally noteworthy for the two brothers who brought the veteran guitarist and bassist John Menegon, both from Upstate New York, for a short tour of Toronto, Kingston, Ottawa and Montreal.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
