Marcus Miller: America's AmBASSadoor

Read "Marcus Miller: America's AmBASSadoor" reviewed by Jim Worsley


Marcus Miller is most often described as a jazz, funk, soul, fusion, and R&B bassist. As much as that is accurate, it is a description that falls well short of the mark. Miller is a high-end musical sponge who manages to incorporate today's cultures and rhythms into his compositions, layered within the framework of sound he ...

Istanbul’s İKSV: An Intensity Beyond Cool

Read "Istanbul’s İKSV: An Intensity Beyond Cool" reviewed by Arthur R George


It would be easy to get breathless, even giddy, about the range and schedule of cultural events organized by İKSV, the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (in Turkish: İstanbul Kültür Sanat Vakfı). One individual could not possibly keep up with its jazz and classical music festivals and everything else that's offered by İKSV. It brings ...

Chris Potter Underground Orchestra: Imaginary Cities

Read "Chris Potter Underground Orchestra: Imaginary Cities" reviewed by Eric J. Iannelli

The Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra: A Love Supreme

Read "A Love Supreme" reviewed by Jack Bowers


I have to start this review with a confession. I've never heard John Coltrane's original recording of A Love Supreme. Sorry; Trane and I parted ways after some of his earlier successes ( Blue Train, Settin' the Pace, Giant Steps, My Favorite Things ), so I must appraise the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra's re-creation of the ...

The Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra (Columbia: Live In Swing City: Swingin

Read "Live In Swing City: Swingin" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey


Thankful for PBS. The Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra is the latest group to capitalize on the trend of bands recording a special for the small screen and then releasing a soundtrack. This accounts for my only quibble: that is there is so little of this music. Say what one may about Wynton Marsalis, he has an ...

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!
