Just off a recent west coast tour with the Madeline Tasquin Trading Company, Justin is an up and coming artist at the beginning of a bright future.

Bastet: Eye of Ra

Read "Eye of Ra" reviewed by Dave Wayne


Billing themselves as “original modern West Coast Jazz," I half- hoped to see Shelly Manne and Bud Shank pop up amongst the credits on Bastet's debut album Eye of Ra.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
