A Night at the Jazz Circus! - Companion Mixtape

Read "A Night at the Jazz Circus! - Companion Mixtape" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

From Charles Gayle's alter ego, Streets the Clown, to the music performed by the Kamikaze Ground Crew for the Flying Karamazov Brothers, from the countless jazz renditions of the iconi themes that Nino Rota wrote for Federico Fellini's movies to the equally countless jazz tunes inspired by circus acts... Jazz and Circus have a long history ...

Avant-Retro or Retro-Avant? Part I

Read "Avant-Retro or Retro-Avant? Part I" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

Rigid categories are not what music should be about. This week we focus on music that some may file under “retro" but is performed by musicians that are often labelled “avant," it may not sound exactly how Count Basie and the Kansas City 7 or Fess Williams and the Royal Flush Orchestra would have played, but ...

Max Nagl, Herwig Gradischnig, Peter Herbert, Michael Vatcher: A Day in My Life

Read "A Day in My Life" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Concepito come un LP, con un lato A (i primi quattro brani) e un lato B (gli altri quattro) e i canonici quaranta minuti di durata totale, questo CD trae spunto, almeno nel titolo, dalla canzone dei Beatles che chiude il leggendario Sgt. Pepper's..., “A Day in the Life," anche se poi, al di là della ...

Due nuove gemme riaprono lo scrigno di Steve Lacy

Read "Due nuove gemme riaprono lo scrigno di Steve Lacy" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Ogni nuova occasione per ascoltare materiale inedito o comunque raro di Steve Lacy rappresenta un indiscutibile piacere (fra l'altro neanche poi così frequente), soprattutto per quanti lo reputano uno dei grandi maestri del jazz--diciamo così--post-parkeriano, tutto sommato ancora non adeguatamente messo a fuoco nel suo reale valore (e chissà se mai lo sarà). I due album ...

Ma forse proprio per la mancanza di aspettative clamorose, grazie alla solida direzione artistica tra certezze e curiosità e per quelle alchimie speciali che regolano ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
