Samo Salamon & Aljosa Jeric Quartet: Mamasaal feat. Mark Turner

Read "Mamasaal feat. Mark Turner" reviewed by Jeff Dayton-Johnson

Samo Salamon & Aljosa Jeric Quartet: Mamasaal feat. Mark Turner

Read "Mamasaal feat. Mark Turner" reviewed by John Dworkin

Read "Mamasaal feat. Mark Turner" reviewed by Matt Marshall

Don't expect to have your bones rattled by Samo Salamon & Aljosa Jeric Quartet's Mamasaal feat. Mark Turner. It's a subtle, contemplative work, passing with the warm glow of an evening lost to conversation and intoxicants in the likes of the album cover's ornate parlor. At times, Salamon's guitar is breezy, providing ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
