Chris Lomheim - Michael O'Brien - Jay Epstein: Triage

Read "Triage" reviewed by Friedrich Kunzmann

Triage refers to the process of weeding-out, deciding about what gets eliminated, on the one hand, and what stays, on the other.

Read "Vanheusenism: A Tribute to Jimmy Van Heusen" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

For the first time, Italian-born vocalist and pianist Daniela Schächter devotes her fourth album to a single songwriter: Jimmy Van Heusen.

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.
