Marco Pignataro: Almas Antiguas

Read "Almas Antiguas" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Trying to place the music of saxophonist Marco Pignataro squarely in a single space, musical or otherwise, is a fruitless endeavor. His roots span oceans, his sound draws on myriad sources, and his open approach to influence and association(s) catapults him to another realm entirely. Yet all roads paved by heart and art in tandem tend ...

Eddie Gomez: Per Sempre

Read "Per Sempre" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Taken as a cohesive statement--a one-hour piece of art in a world of downloads and diminishing attention spans--bassist Eddie Gomez's Per Sempre stands out, with the minor and enviable disadvantage of opening with the set's loveliest tune, “Arianna." Good news/good news: the rest of this superb outing is just a notch--a small one--below that level of ...

Eddie Gomez: Per Sempre

Read "Per Sempre" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Bassist Eddie Gomez has never received the attention he deserves as a leader. While that's largely due to the fact that he spends so much time making other people sound better, the reason isn't important; it's an injustice, regardless of the cause.

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.
