The Pandemic Sessions: Solos, Part 2

Read "The Pandemic Sessions: Solos, Part 2" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Mattias Risberg: Stamps

Read "Stamps" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro


Due anni fa, insieme col sassofonista--come lui svedese--Fredrik Ljungkvist, Mattias Risberg aveva dedicato a Carla Bley l'abum And Now the Queen (che già il titolo...); oggi trasferisce in solitudine in questo suo nuovo lavoro le sue passioni per le tastiere in senso lato, anche se poi, di fatto, Stamps è un album per piano solo (qua ...

Read "Fredrik Ljungkvist / Yun Kan 10: Ten" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni

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!
