2017: The Year in Jazz

Read "2017: The Year in Jazz" reviewed by Ken Franckling

A year of achievements, challenges to gender inequality, scandal and losses The year 2017 was quite something for the jazz world. Incidents or discussions of misogyny and sexual misconduct bubbled up even before the #MeToo phenomenon developed. Beyond that, woman musicians made significant contributions to the genre. International Jazz Day brought its biggest stage ...

Marta Sánchez: Danza Imposible

Read "Danza Imposible" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Instead of taking the obvious pathways through or directly to an idea, Sánchez paves byways and discovers wormholes that prove far more interesting and meaningful as travel routes. ...

John Blevins: Matterhorn

Read "Matterhorn" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Back in the 1960s, when the music now commonly known as fusion was called “jazz-rock," the earliest bands to get plastered with said label were essentially funk and rock rhythm sections--guitar, bass, keys and drums, plus or minus congas--with a lead singer and a jazzy horn section tacked on. Think Blood Sweat and Tears, or Tower ...

Read "I 10 CD nel CD-Player di... Marta Sanchez" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

01. Jaki Byard --The Last from Lennie's (Prestige--2003). Ho ascoltato spesso Jaki Byard durante l'ultimo anno. Ora sto indirizzando la mia attenzione su questo disco con Joe Farrell. La versione di “After You've Gone," suonata in trio è sorprendente. Subito dopo l'esposizione della melodia piano, basso e batteria eseguono dei soli. Lo stride di Jaki ...

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.
