Hooray for Beaujolais!

Read "Hooray for Beaujolais!" reviewed by Matt Penman

But Beaujolais Nouveau just isn't worth the calories, darling. Spend some time instead exploring the ...

Tobias Meinhart: The Painter

Read "The Painter" reviewed by Friedrich Kunzmann


During the past decade of working the jazz clubs of New York, German tenor saxophonist Tobias Meinhart has soaked up every inch of the musical tradition he started pursuing as a drummer in Bavaria in his early teens. A keen ear for melodic development, a gift for harmonic oversight and the whims for rhythmic intricacy already ...

Chenin Blanc from the Loire

Read "Chenin Blanc from the Loire" reviewed by Matt Penman


The wild Loire river runs from the Atlantic ocean deep into France's center, and there is beautiful, diverse, and historically under-appreciated wine throughout its entire length. But the middle section, from Angers to the city of Tours, is where Chenin Blanc rules. A varietal with a real talent for expressing the land, it sucks up available ...

Jochen Rueckert: Fringe Guy

Read "Jochen Rueckert: Fringe Guy" reviewed by Leo Sidran


In this wide ranging podcast interview, drummer Jochen Rueckert meditates on his early years in Germany, his time playing with Marc Copeland and later with Will Vinson, why playing with great bass players is like eating great pasta (especially true with Matt Penman), refusing to share hotel rooms, why he is a reluctant teacher, what Lage ...

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!
