Nu Band: Live In Geneva

Read "Live In Geneva" reviewed by John Sharpe

Everything must change as the Nina Simone song puts it. That's as true in music as anywhere else, and changing one of the parts inevitably affects the whole.

Joe McPhee: Flowers

Read "Flowers" reviewed by Mark Corroto

For the longest time it was a commonly held belief that solo saxophone performances, especially freely improvised solo saxophone performances, were an acquired taste. Meaning they are things that one has come to like only through experience, but mostly it is a polite way to say you find the music distasteful. Certainly, much of improvised music ...

Read "Remembering Dominic Duval" reviewed by Dom Minasi

Around 1985, I got a call from a close friend and my drummer at the time, Tony Lupo. Tony and I had been friends and playing together since 1963. At that time, we were both into Be-Bop and as we grew in age, our musical tastes and interest leaned towards outside playing. Of course, we never ...

Dominic Duval: Follow Your Melody

Read "Dominic Duval: Follow Your Melody" reviewed by Maxim Micheliov

In memory of Dominic Duval: 1945-2016. This article was first published in October 2010. Bassist Dominic Duval is a mystery to many--even to those interested in free music.

Read "Max Johnson Quartet" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Il disco si presenta nella solida confezione cartonata che caratterizza le uscite Not Two, etichetta polacca fondata nel 1998 da Marek Winiarski dal catalogo sempre più interessante. Ma la vera goduria per gli occhi è la rappresentazione in vivido stile flower- power degli strumenti presenti nell'incisione, veri capolavori grafico/pittorici dai colori sgargianti che sembrano rendere palpabili ...

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.
