Another saxophonist, American Seth Trachy, brought along his mentor, the very respected ...

Read "Whit Dickey, Asher Gamedze, Quin Kirchner, Icepick and More" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

Three albums by drummers highlight this episode. South Africa's Asher Gamedze's Dialectic Soul brings to light the freer, more avant side of contemporary South African jazz (perhaps in a way that the revered Louis Moholo Moholo did over fifty years ago), while drummer Quin Kirchner's latest delves into various rhythms and tributes to favorite musicians. Tying ...

Read "Lina Allemano, Yaroslav Likhachev, Pauli Lyytinen and More" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

This episode might be a week early, given that seven days later is International Jazz Day, but OMJ has been pretty international in scope for a long time now.

Sebastien Ammann’s Color Wheel, Kenny Warren Trio and More

Read "Sebastien Ammann’s Color Wheel, Kenny Warren Trio and More" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

I doubt you would get much argument that trumpet players Herb Robertson and Dave Ballou, bassist Drew Gress and drummer Tom Rainey are among the finest of their generation. When Robertson and Ballou decided to form a quartet back in 2005, those four musical minds coming together pretty much assured some magic would happen. In 2007 ...

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.
