Lola Danza: Life of Luxury

Read "Lola Danza: Life of Luxury" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey


Singer/composer Lola Danza has a pan-cultural and artistic vision expanding well beyond the traditional singer's role as performer and interpreter, though these facets do exist large in her art. The singer began a personal trend on Vision Quest (Evolver, 2005) employing a rhythm section of only two bassists. This format, with an occasional splash added by ...

Lola Danza: The Island

Read "The Island" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


Vocalist Lola Danza has always been an original thinker, but that doesn't get you very far in a field crowded with people fitting that description. What makes Danza stand out is her strength of vision and steadfast commitment to following her muse, no matter how non-commercial it may be. With Janya (Evolver, 2011), Danza and her ...

Lola Danza: The Island

Read "The Island" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Janya: Janya

Read "Janya" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


Janya's sound is all about Korean-influenced music for the free jazz-loving soul. The members of this female foursome are all of Korean descent, and bring a free yet flowing sensibility to this seven-song program of original music. While the presence of instruments like gayageum, daegeum and janggo--a zither-like string instrument, bamboo transverse flute, ...

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!
