Rob Laufer: The Floating World

While the LP's main touchstones are a bit obvious, the process of distinguishing the ...

Luther Russell: Medium Cool

Read "Medium Cool" reviewed by Doug Collette


The photo of Luther Russell wearing shades inside this digipak perfectly captures the attitude of this album's title, albeit with slightly self-effacing charm. But the music resounds even deeper in that regard. Russell's longstanding independence is the source of the infectious immediacy in his rock, and his do-it-yourself approach to making records creates loose, scrappy power ...

And yet, it's also a break from Song and Dance because Broom has changed his ...

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!
