But from now on, there are no more excuses: the album Ouro Negro, produced by musicians Zé Nogueira and Mario Adnet, is coming out. The CD (released on the label MP,B) features the two instrumentalists performing the sophisticated music of Santos—who is 75 years old and has lived in Los Angeles for the past 3 decades. In fact, the "secret" around Moacir Santos is not that secret

Read "Rinascita a Chicago: le gemme dell’etichetta International Anthem" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Mauricio Pessoa: Without You

Read "Without You" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


There's an urbane aura surrounding the music of Mauricio Pessoa. From the mournful string strains that introduce a dewy-eyed “Saudade I" on through to the high society swing of the “Without You" closer, his writing proves evocative both in drawing attention to times past and highlighting the influence of past masters--Moacir Santos, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Lindolpho ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
