JD Allen: Graffiti

Read "Graffiti" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

La carriera di JD Allen è sempre stata segnata dalle stigmate di appartenenza alla famiglia dei cosiddetti giovani leoni del mainstream, benché nel celebrato album di debutto per Red Record datato 1999--In Search of JD Allen--i segnali di una vivace curiosità e attenzione verso forme meno canoniche di jazz fossero ben presenti. In seguito al trasferimento ...


Jason Lindner: Beyond the Solo

Read "Jason Lindner: Beyond the Solo" reviewed by Franz A. Matzner

Jason Linder has been at the center of modern jazz's evolution for nearly two decades. His distinctive and flexible piano and synthesizer sound have placed him in a bewildering array of musical contexts and whether it's accompanying Anat Cohen, collaborating with Dafnis Prieto, or challenging the very edges of contemporary jazz--edges he has helped carve--Lindner consistently ...

Me'Shell Ndegéocello: Pour Une Âme Souveraine: A Dedication To Nina Simone

Read "Pour Une Âme Souveraine: A Dedication To Nina Simone" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Nei giorni in cui scriviamo questa recensione divampa una polemica sulla scelta dell'attrice che dovrebbe interpretare il ruolo di Nina Simone nell'atteso film biografia: l'annunciata Zoe Saldana sarebbe infatti - e in effetti lo è - un po' troppo “bianca" rispetto alla celebre cantante che dovrebbe impersonare e molte voci di protesta si stanno levando, tanto ...

On Heritage, he's assembled new musicians and hooks up with innovative pianist Robert Glasper, who coproduced and performs on the album. ...

Evoking the fruitful jazz and pop crossover efforts of the 1970s, pianist Robert Glasper's Experiment infuses improvisational sensibilities into an array of contemporary black music traditions, from R&B and neo-soul to funk and hip-hop.

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
