Laurie Anderson: Big Science

Read "Big Science" reviewed by Nenad Georgievski


Sometimes a reissue is notable because of the extra material it carries and sometimes because it might unearth something previously unknown. And sometimes, as with the new vinyl reissue of Laurie Anderson's debut album Big Science, a new chance to talk about this masterpiece should be taken. Four decades ago, Laurie Anderson came down to us, ...

Mirna Bogdanović: L'arte del confronto

Read "Mirna Bogdanović: L'arte del confronto" reviewed by Serena Antinucci

La tradizione si apre verso direzioni contemporanee, più istintive, non resta ferma, si mostra accogliente ed è pronta a cambiare rotta senza preavviso, né regole. Confrontation da ...

Steph Richards: Supersense

Read "Supersense" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic


With all the threatening weirdness and desperate surrealism that has become life in the USA, it makes absolute sense that Supersense, daring trumpeter/composer Steph Richards' third full length album, starts out like an encroaching invasion of ants, or microbes, or a disruptive, divisive, myopic political movement. As with such forward seeking rebels as Henry ...

The Archive of Contemporary Music

Read "The Archive of Contemporary Music" reviewed by Karl Ackermann


In Lower Manhattan, sits a musical gold mine. It's the motherlode of recorded music though the small, brightly colored sign above a grey steel door provides only a cryptic clue. 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 ...

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!
