David Lord: Forest Standards Vol. 2

Read "Forest Standards Vol. 2" reviewed by Troy Dostert


Although his many years spent on the expansive plains of Wichita, Kansas, wouldn't make it likely that guitarist David Lord developed an obsession with the darker recesses of forest life, his music certainly conveys a deep appreciation of that somewhat otherworldly realm. On his Forest Standards Vol. 1 (BIG EGO Records, 2018) and current Vol. 2 ...

James Senese: Un Jazzista a metà

Read "James Senese: Un Jazzista a metà" reviewed by Paolo Marra


Quando tra gli anni ottanta e novanta James Senese andò a suonare negli Stati Uniti i musicisti americani non credettero al fatto che fosse napoletano scambiandolo, per il suo modo unico di suonare, per un sassofonista di Chicago.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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!
