The concept here is that the ...

Read "Ragmala: A Garland of Ragas" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Questo magistrale doppio album di Adam Rudolph nasce dalla collaborazione tra la sua Go: Organic Orchestra e il collettivo Brooklyn Raga Massive. Venti appassionanti brani che realizzano il monumento finale (ma certo non conclusivo) della quarantennale attività del percussionista dedita all'incontro tra musiche afro-americane, africane e asiatiche.

Hamid Drake / Ralph M. Jones / Adam Rudolph: Karuna

Read "Karuna" reviewed by Mark Corroto

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.
