Benjamin Lee

It all started with a music teacher who needed to add some low end to her third grade orchestra. She picked the tallest kid in the room, who had his big hands wrapped around a cello at the time, and said “Hey! Take a look here, come play this upright bass!” That kid was Benjamin Lee, and once he heard the resonant tones of the largest instrument he had ever seen, he was hooked. Born in Los Angeles, California, Ben grew up in an incredibly diverse soundscape. His first library of music was his father’s record collection, which melded Laurel Canyon sounds with classic rock, folk, jazz, soul, and spirituals

Presenting Problem

Read "Presenting Problem" reviewed by Duncan Heining

Jazz often appears to exist within its own cultural and artistic paradigm, isolated from other arts and in its own discreet musical corner.

Thollem McDonas - William Parker - Nels Cline: The Gowanus Session

Read "The Gowanus Session" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Da quando ha iniziato a frequentare assiduamente il giro newyorchese, complice il matrimonio con l'ex Cibo Matto Yuka Honda, Nels Cline ha riscoperto il gusto di mettersi in gioco. Intendiamoci: non che prima fosse totalmente estraneo a rischi e relazioni pericolose; il vizio di tastare il polso alla propria creatività, il chitarrista degli Wilco, ce l'ha ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
