Cathlene Pineda: Rainbow Baby

Read "Rainbow Baby" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

The leader or co-leader of a dozen or so different small ensembles playing everything from modern jazz to contemporary ...

Invisible Astro Healing Rhythm Quartet: Invisible Astro Healing Rhythm Quartet

Read "Invisible Astro Healing Rhythm Quartet" reviewed by Mark Corroto

While the tagline 'Miles Smiles' is more befitting Miles Davis' second great quintet, it is an apt reference to this recording by the Invisible Astro Healing Rhythm Quartet (IAHRQ), who draw not so much from the Columbia recordings by Miles Davis E.S.P> (1965), Sorcerer (1967), or Nefertiti (1968) but from the great electricity of Live-Evil (1971) ...

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.
