Lewis Barnes

I'm most directly influenced on my instrument by Miles Davis, Kenny Dorham, Booker Little, and Thad Jones. I create music with bassist William Parker's critically acclaimed quartet (which includes Rob Brown on saxophone and Hamid Drake on drums), The Raining On The Piano Group, which adds pianist Eri Yamamoto and vocalist Leena Conquest to the quartet. Also, I'm in the The Little Huey Orchestra, and The Inside The Songs of Curtis Mayfield project (with Amiri Baraka, Leena Conquest, Darryl Foster, Sabir Mateen, and Dave Burrell). I also contribute my trumpet to Greg Tate's collective Burnt Sugar, which includes a host of tremendous and outstanding musicians

Jeff Cosgrove/John Medeski/Jeff Lederer: History Gets Ahead of the Story

Read "History Gets Ahead of the Story" reviewed by Troy Dostert

William Hooker: Light The Early Years 1975-1989

Read "Light The Early Years 1975-1989" reviewed by Mark Corroto

The good news is that record executives are no longer the gatekeepers of taste and style in music today. Inexpensive recording equipment and the advent of digital music allow the artist, and the audience to cast a wide net these days. This wasn't the case forty years ago, especially for the improvised jazz scene. Studio time ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
