Harold Land: Westward Bound!

Harold Land: Westward Bound!

Over the years, tenor saxophonist Harold Land has been positioned as unheralded, underappreciated and not fully celebrated. He has also been referred to as John Coltrane's true heir and a genius. None of this is true, of course. Land recorded 15 leadership albums between 1958 and 2001 and four times that number as a sideman. Jazz ...

Beverly Kenney: Vocalist in Distress

Beverly Kenney: Vocalist in Distress

Beverly Kenney recorded seven albums between 1955 to 1959. She had a singing voice that was a cross between Blossom Dearie and Marilyn Monroe, but her approach on songs was courageous, taking risks on melodies that made her interesting to hear. What wasn't evident from her publicity photos—showing a poised, attractive and seemingly upbeat woman—was her ...

Chico Hamilton: A Different Journey

Chico Hamilton: A Different Journey

Last week, after my post on Bobby Hutcherson's Oblique, featuring Albert Stinson on bass, Bill Kirchner reminded me of Chico Hamilton's A Different Journey, featuring a superb Hamilton-led quintet that included Stinson. Recorded for Reprise in January 1963 in San Francisco, the quintet was comprised of George Bohanon (tb), Charles Lloyd (fl,ts,as), Gabor Szabo (g), Albert ...

Bobby Hutcherson: Oblique

Bobby Hutcherson: Oblique

It's so hard to understand why great albums weren't released soon after they were recorded. When the release of superb music was delayed by years, the reason was likely a marketing decision.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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!
