Nick Sanders Trio Playtime 2050 Sunnyside Records 2019 Nick Sanders understandably sees some turbulence ahead at the midpoint of the century (not to mention the decades leading up to it).

Ben Winkelman: Balance

Read "Balance" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Form must always reckon with freedom, scripts and spontaneity are bound by mutual understanding, and intellect blossoms truest as it holds the heart in high regard. Only in a state of relative equilibrium ...

Read "Il Meglio del 2018 Secondo Neri Pollastri" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Anche quest'anno, faticosamente e responsabilmente, ho selezionato tra i miei numerosi ascolti dodici dischi e dieci concerti che potessero essere considerati se non “i migliori," quantomeno “tra i migliori." La selezione è fatalmente influenzata non solo dalle mie predilezioni (non si può ascoltar tutto e fatalmente ci si concentra su ciò che per qualche ragione ci ...

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.
