Emanuele Passerini, Jon Irabagon, Sylvain Rifflet and The Warriors Of The Wonderful Sound

Read "Emanuele Passerini, Jon Irabagon, Sylvain Rifflet and The Warriors Of The Wonderful Sound" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

Italian soprano saxophonist Emanuele Passerini says he does not consider himself a professional musician. He has a great job in the private sector, so he records only sporadically. Well, good thing he found the time to record Trio Geometrics with drummer Tiziano Tononi and bassist Tito Mangialajo Rantzer. It's a spectacular album, and a feature of ...

Uptown Jazz Tentet: What's Next

Read "What's Next" reviewed by Jack Bowers

A tentet is a rather strange bird; too large to be labeled a small group, yet too small to be counted as a big band, it resides somewhere near the edges, mapping out its own musical profile. Some may rate that an asset, while others may deem it a mere hybrid, unworthy of their consideration. Wiser ...

Uptown Jazz Tentet: What's Next

Read "What's Next" reviewed by Edward Blanco

New York-based trombonist Willie Applewhite birthed the idea of forming a new big band comprised of friends, and in 2016 The Uptown Jazz Tentet was established, co-led by trumpeter Brandon Lee and trombonist James Burton III.

The Volcanic World Of Pyroclastic Records

Read "The Volcanic World Of Pyroclastic Records" reviewed by Mark Corroto

As listeners we so often typecast musicians and music labels. Artists are pigeonholed into silos: classical, jazz, rock, blues, pop, etc..

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.
