Words on World Jazz

Read "Words on World Jazz" reviewed by AAJ Staff

Fasteau Let's take a dialectic approach to the subject of 'world jazz', looking at both the macro contours (the big picture) and the micro tones, like the Indian term 'sruti': the smallest audible difference of pitch.

Kali Z. Fasteau: Oneness

Read "Oneness" reviewed by Kurt Gottschalk


Kali Fasteau is the keeper of a flame. While the high-octane experiments of the '60s New Thing are largely kept alive today by emulation, Fasteau holds to the era's spirit of exploration. Rather than engaging in long-winded blowing sessions, her interest lies in jazz-based journeys using different instrumental voices and cultural traditions as a vehicle. She ...

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!
