Miriodor: Cobra Fakir

Read "Cobra Fakir" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Hailing from Canada, Miriodor's 35-year existence has yielded a fruitful discography, as the band is nestled within a Rock in Opposition (R.I.O) stylization that transcends progressive rock into various spatial aspects and genres.

Miriodor: Avanti!

Read "Avanti!" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

I canadesi Miriodor non sono molto noti fuori dai confini del loro paese ma hanno alle spalle quasi trent'anni di carriera che hanno consentito loro di maturare lentamente ma con ottimi risultati. Il loro rock progressivo profuma di avanguardia e di coraggio, di epico lirismo e di energia ritmica scoppiettante. Con questo settimo album, Avanti!, sembrano ...

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.
