Tallinn Music Week Tallinn, Estonia August 28-29, 2020 Postponed from March, the Tallinn Music Week might not have happened, even in August.

Tallinn Music Week Interviews: Kadri Voorand

Read "Tallinn Music Week Interviews: Kadri Voorand" reviewed by Martin Longley

Read "Moers Festival 2020" reviewed by Martin Longley

Moers Festival Eventhalle Moers Germany May 29-June 1, 2020 Under the lockdown, this year's Moers Festival wasn't able to welcome its accustomed audience in the flesh, but artistic director Tim Isfort refused to cancel or postpone, instead opting to livestream the entire four-day proceedings, with artists ...

Green Man Interviews: Alabaster DePlume

Read "Green Man Interviews: Alabaster DePlume" reviewed by Martin Longley

Alabaster DePlume has a softness of saxophone tone. He also has a hardness of poetic intent. These divergent aspects of this multi-instrumentalist, London-living bon vivant can be heard on an impressive pair of recent releases. To Cy & Lee: Instrumentals Vol. 1 (International Anthem Recording Co.) finds DePlume at his most introspective, making music ...

Borealis 2020

Read "Borealis 2020" reviewed by Martin Longley

Borealis Bergen, Norway March 6-8, 2020 Borealis means 'northern,' so we must be in Norway, for this festival of experimental music, which has been running in rainy Bergen since 2004.

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.
