Read "Stone Shift" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Avvicinarsi all'opera di Larry Ochs (artista che molti conoscono come co-fondatore e componente del ROVA Saxophone Quartet) è un'esperienza mai priva di interesse, non solo per l'evidente dedizione dell'artista e per le sue notevoli doti di strumentista, ma soprattutto per un impegno compositivo che mostra di risolvere con criteri originali le apparenti incongruenze che sembrerebbero esistere ...

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.
