Denise Mangiardi: Brown Book

Read "Brown Book" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

Denise Mangiardi dwells in two musical worlds, as both a jazz singer and an accomplished classical composer. She puts all her talents to good use on this CD, singing a collection of self-written ballads, folk songs and torch songs, over her own haunting arrangements. Mangiardi's moving string-writing appears on the two brief “Soundscape" instrumentals ...

Roseanna Vitro: Tell Me The Truth

Read "Tell Me The Truth" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

It is completely fitting that vocalist Roseanna Vitro conceive of and release a recording devoted to the music of the American South. But, this is not just any thoughtlessly-assembled concept recording. Vitro is the master of intelligently programmed and produced thematic albums as evidenced by: Catching Some Rays: The Music of Ray Charles (Telarc, 1997); The ...

Stefanie Schlesinger: Reality

Read "Reality" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Reality is relative. For some, it's a direct reflection of the walk of life; for others, it's embedded in what's heard and seen from a safe distance--music encountered in a concert hall or club, movies and television shows taken in from the couch or the theater--and the merging of art and entertainment with daily existence. This ...

Bob Cranshaw, 1932-2016

Bassist Bob Cranshaw succumbed to bone cancer yesterday at his home in New York City. He was 83. He may be best remembered as Sonny Rollins’s bassist for more than half a century, but Cranshaw’s career also included mainstay work with Dexter Gordon, James Moody, Kai Winding, Wes Montgomery, Duke Pearson, Mose Allison, Oliver Nelson, and ...

Steve Smith: Drummer For All Seasons

Read "Steve Smith: Drummer For All Seasons" reviewed by R.J. DeLuke

Drummer Steve Smith has traced the history of jazz drumming--pretty much most of American music drumming--in his storied career that has seen him drive big bands, small jazz combos, and fiery fusion groups, including tenures with Jean Luc Ponty and the rock band Journey. Though sometimes--as in the case of jazz-rock fusion--he was thrown ...

Steve Smith and Vital Information NYC Edition: Viewpoint

Read "Viewpoint" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Drummer Steve Smith has a knack for separating his musical interests and satisfying his varied musical appetites through the use of different bands. But with Viewpoint, he works the inverse angle: Smith's passions and groups converge here, as his respect for the history of jazz, infatuation with sleek modernism, and love of Buddy Rich all inform ...

Roseanna Vitro: Clarity: Music of Clare Fischer

Read "Clarity: Music of Clare Fischer" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Roseanna Vitro is a “singer's singer." What does that mean? It means she is so excellent and still warranting much more attention. Her deep and precise alto is perfectly tuned and balanced. Her phrasing is textbook. This is what a jazz singer sounds like. But Vitro's skill set does not stop at vocal ...

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.
