Sizeable Outfits, Enviable Outcomes: Large Ensembles In Pursuit Of Excellence

Read "Sizeable Outfits, Enviable Outcomes: Large Ensembles In Pursuit Of Excellence" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


Perhaps nothing better symbolizes dogged persistence than the proliferation of large ensembles in every corner of the jazz world. To take on this kind of work can and should be considered injudicious for the rationally-minded, as the investments--time-wise, organizationally, financially, mentally--are beyond compare. But just because the dollars and sense don't add up doesn't mean it's ...

Lucas Pino's No Net Nonet: That's a Computer

Read "That's a Computer" reviewed by Jack Bowers

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!
