Brandee Younger: Soul Awakening

Read "Soul Awakening" reviewed by Serena Antinucci

Sembrerebbe quasi che Brandee Younger abbia preferito ripetitive udienze private con la luna, prima di decidere se liberare il suo ultimo lavoro discografico. Forse, in questi dialoghi confidenziali, la luna le avrà svelato i misteri antichi del mondo, della musica, donandole immagini uniche piene di incanto. A queste è rimasta aggrappata per lunghi sette anni, prima ...

Michael Leonhart: Suite Extracts Vol. 1

Read "Suite Extracts Vol. 1" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Credo proprio di non esagerare ma è dall'uscita di There Comes a Time di Gil Evans che non ascoltavo un album orchestrale così eclettico nella sintesi di materiali diversi. Il nuovo disco di Michael Leonhart segue il debutto di The Painted Lady Suite (Sunnyside 2018), il maestoso affresco musicale che evocava l'impressionismo del primo Evans, con ...

MUSICIAN Born:

Brent Birckhead

Saxophonist Brent Birckhead is an award-winning artist, whose aesthetic is an intersectional amalgam of traditional and popular styles. Unbound by genre, Birckhead’s approach to woodwind artistry is driven by his compulsion for creative risk and deep respect for legacy. His place in the continuum of a storied lineage begins with his surname, Birckhead, and extends to his extensive musical education and work ethic as a visionary approach to life as a rising leader. Educated at Howard University (BME, MM), Birckhead was named best blues/pop/rock soloist and outstanding instrumental jazz soloist by Downbeat Magazine as part of the annual Student Music Awards

Michael Leonhart: The Painted Lady Suite

Read "The Painted Lady Suite" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

A trent'anni esatti dalla scomparsa di Gil Evans, la sua lezione orchestrale rivive e si alimenta di nuove suggestioni. Il sorprendente e straordinario debutto della Michael Leonhart Orchestra rinnova un'estetica che in questi decenni ha ispirato Maria Schneider, in parte Darcy James Argue e alimentato la ricerca filologica e la rielaborazione di Ryan Truesdell.

Stafford Hunter: Continuum

Read "Continuum" reviewed by Paul Rauch

Stafford Hunter is known as a trombonist who grew out of the modern paradigm set by Steve Turre. He also shares a unique quality with Turre, in that he is an expert player of conch shells in the jazz idiom, joining him in the ensemble, Steve Turre and Sanctified Shells. While this tie with ...

Damión Reid: On Drum Artistry, The Robert Glasper Trio, and Beyond

Read "Damión Reid: On Drum Artistry, The Robert Glasper Trio, and Beyond" reviewed by K. Shackelford

International drummer Damión Reid has crafted a style that is inimitable without sacrificing the ardor of modern jazz and its traditional stylistic approaches to drumming.

James Brandon Lewis: Days of Freeman

Read "Days of Freeman" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Una delle promesse più significative del jazz attuale pubblica il terzo disco da leader, confermando la formula del trio con un progetto e una partnership nuovi. Se nel precedente Divine Travels (Okeh, 2014) aveva come padri tutelari William Parker e Gerald Cleaver in un percorso ispirato alla tradizione gospel, stavolta il sassofonista si rivolge ...

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.
