Blues Masters: Elvin Bishop & Charlie Musselwhite and New Moon Jelly Roll Freedom Rockers

Read "Blues Masters: Elvin Bishop & Charlie Musselwhite and New Moon Jelly Roll Freedom Rockers" reviewed by Doug Collette

The tradition of the blues remains tried but true over generations of musicians and fans, the devotion of the latter mirroring and complementing the loyalty of the former. And the twisting, turning geography of the music's evolution, from Africa to the Southern delta (and its adjacent hill country) up the Mississippi River to Chicago, is itself ...

Read "Dave Storrs' Sound Shack: Part 1" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Piano Forte: Chick Corea & Ran Blake/Frank Carlberg

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.
