Ellen Johnson

Ellen Johnson’s devotion to the jazz world spans more than 35 years as a professional jazz recording artist, educator, songwriter, lyricist, author, and publicist. Johnson has performed, recorded and studied with many exceptional musicians including; Charles McPherson, Louie Bellson, Bobby McFerrin, Sheila Jordan, Jay Clayton, Don Braden, Willie Pickens, Roy McCurdy, John Clayton and John Collins. Johnson’s performances have been described as “superior jazz singing by an artist of the highest quality” by Jazz Journal International and her past recording project These Days, (that featured a duet with jazz icon Sheila Jordan), was called by All About Jazz, a “sophisticated and successful album that raises the standard of modern jazz singing by at least one notch.” Johnson recently completed the biography Jazz Child: Portrait of Sheila Jordan in September 2014 by Rowman and Littlefield

Il commosso ricordo del geniale pianista, scomparso nel 2017, ha trasfigurato le consuete trame iconoclaste dell'ensemble olandese in pannelli swinganti ...

Meet Andrew Rothman

Read "Meet Andrew Rothman" reviewed by Tessa Souter and Andrea Wolper

Lawyer, audiophile, lifelong arts enthusiast, our newest Super Fan's life plan was to be a classical pianist, until college took him in another direction. But it was two “major epiphanies" (the first time he heard Miles Davis and, later, Bill Evans) that turned him into a jazz Super Fan--such a Super Fan, in fact, that he ...

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.
