Bettye LaVette: Blackbirds

Read "Blackbirds" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


Com'è accaduto a Sharon Jones anche Bettye Lavette ha incontrato il successo in età matura--o nel suo caso avanzata--ottenendo quei riconoscimenti che non ebbe negli anni d'oro della soul music. È stato l'album del 2003 A Woman Like Me, quando aveva già 57 anni, a darle quel successo che attendeva da tempo, aprendole un percorso ricco ...

The dusty window display of rare 78 RPM records, broken into erratic pie charts serves as a vestige of the past and a cautionary tale about ...

The Rolling Stones: Let It Bleed: 50th Anniversary Limited Deluxe Edition

Read "Let It Bleed: 50th Anniversary Limited Deluxe Edition" reviewed by Doug Collette


The Rolling Stones' Let It Bleed 50th Anniversary Limited Deluxe Edition is both more and less of what usually comprises such milestone packages.

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!
