Ten Artists: May 2019

Read "Ten Artists: May 2019" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey


Paul JostSimple LifePaul Jost Music2019 I believe there are precious few exceptional male jazz vocalists. There. I said it. Female vocalists? They are legion. But once one has pruned away the vanity projects, the Sinatra wannabes, and the most recent unforgivable cover of “My Funny Valentine," there remain few. Paul Jost ...

Musette Explosion!

Read "Musette Explosion!" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

Catherine Russell: Harlem on My Mind

Read "Harlem on My Mind" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


Dotata di brillanti doti vocali, ottimo gusto interpretativo e naturale esuberanza, Catherine Russell è giunta al successo tardivamente, dopo aver trascorso decenni a cantare come corista per rockstar di rilievo (David Bowie, Paul Simon, Cindy Lauper, Steely Dan). Dopo i cinquant'anni ha però bruciato le tappe e questo è il suo sesto disco da leader, dedicato ...

Henry Butler, Steven Bernstein and the Hot 9: Viper's Drag

Read "Viper's Drag" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


Cosa unisce la dissacrante verve di Steven Bernstein -estroverso leader dei Sex Mob e animatore di vari progetti con la Tzadik di John Zorn-col virtuosistico pianismo di Henry Butler, fortemente intriso di blues?

Uno sguardo alla chitarra nel jazz contemporaneo

Read "Uno sguardo alla chitarra nel jazz contemporaneo" reviewed by Mario Calvitti


La chitarra è ormai da decenni uno degli strumenti più popolari e diffusi nel jazz; tanti sono stati, e sono tuttora, gli interpreti di questo strumento, protagonisti di un suo progressivo affrancamento dalle iniziali convenzioni per arrivare a renderlo sempre più libero e trasversale, al servizio di una maggiore e completa espressività del musicista che lo ...

Musette Explosion: Introducing Musette Explosion

Read "Introducing Musette Explosion" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


Will Holshouser, Matt Munisteri e Marcus Rojas scrivono una nuova pagina nella lunga relazione che lega il jazz alla musette e, innanzi tutto, hanno il merito di non riproporre le varie tipologie dello stile manouche (a partire dalla matrice storica di Django Reinhardt e Stéphane Grappelli) scegliendo semmai di seguire un percorso analogo a quello di ...

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!
