Julie Sassoon: If You Can't Go Outside...Go Inside

Read "If You Can't Go Outside...Go Inside" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic


As we've learned time and time again throughout this sick year, 2021, not many humans are ready to completely surrender themselves for the good of their fellow kind. So it's truly a beautiful thing when Berlin based pianist Julie Sassoon surrenders so completely to her instrument and the moment that, like a medium, reveals mysteries to ...

Michael Wolff: Live at Vitellos

Read "Live at Vitellos" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


As time stretches the fabric of reality, what with venues closed or operating under incredibly restrictive mandates since March of 2020, it's starting to feel like it's been a decade since we've been able to gather in the quiets of a club to take in a rapturous set of music. So it's only fitting that this ...

On Miles' (not so) Silent Way

Read "On Miles' (not so) Silent Way" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

This week we celebrate the musical trail blazed by that seminal album by focusing on musicians that have embraced Miles' electric ...

Tomasz Dabrowski: Ninjazz

Read "Ninjazz" reviewed by Don Phipps


Dark and foreboding, with a slight touch of heat, Polish trumpeter Tomasz Dąbrowski's album Ninjazz offers up a selection of work that reminds one of his mentor, the late great Tomasz Stanko, with a bit of Enrico Rava, Kenny Wheeler, and Mark Isham thrown in for good measure. Dabrowski is joined on this effort ...

Michael Shrieve's Spellbinder: Michael Shrieve's Spellbinder

Read "Michael Shrieve's Spellbinder" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


Drummer Michael Shrieve's Spellbinder is not your garden variety group. It's a beast of band that slams, seduces, grooves, jams, and rocks in high gear. Should we expect anything less from the rhythmic motor behind Santana? While Shrieve is best known as the driving force behind that legendary outfit, both in its original ...

Read "only sky" reviewed by John Kelman


Despite a career that now goes back over three decades, the relative infrequency of releases from guitarist and sound sculptor David Torn renders any new one, at the very least, a cause for speculation...if not enthusiastic anticipation. Beyond the soundtracks that have become one piece of the puzzle that defines who Torn is--and acting as engineer ...

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!
