Freedom of the City 2010

Read "Freedom of the City 2010" reviewed by Ken Waxman

"To Thine Self Be True" is lettered above the stage at Conway Hall where London's annual Freedom of the City (FOTC) festival took place May 2nd-3rd.

3ology: With Ron Miles

Read "With Ron Miles" reviewed by Ken Waxman

This album is appropriately titled as, in many cases, the addition of another musician raises the level of an entire band's playing. So it is on this session, where Denver-based cornetist Ron Miles joins Colrado's 3ology combo. Evident from the one track on which Miles isn't featured, 3ology--brothers Doug and Tim Carmichael (alto sax and bass, ...

Ingebrigt H: Double Bass

Read "Double Bass" reviewed by Ken Waxman

Double Bass is a showcase for the jazz and free music skills of Oslo-based Håker Flaten. With 40 CDs to his credit, he may be a Scandinavian version of Ron Carter: his breadth of experience includes jazz, improv, electronica and fusion, with leaders ranging from the cerebral American multi-instrumentalist Joe McPhee to Finnish metal-jazz guitarist Raoul ...

Sun Ra: Solo Piano Recital - Teatro La Fenice, Venezia

Read "Solo Piano Recital - Teatro La Fenice, Venezia" reviewed by Ken Waxman

This is the hippest solo piano CD you're ever going to hear that features old time standards like “Take the A Train," “St Louis Blues" and “Honeysuckle Rose." That's because the artist involved isn't some wannabe young lion aiming for mainstream cred or a palsied trad jazz survivor nostalgically re-creating the sounds of his youth. Instead, ...

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.
