Shelley Hirsch: Back with a Vengeance

Read "Shelley Hirsch: Back with a Vengeance" reviewed by John Pietaro


It took Brooklyn's Roulette performance space to break COVID-19's hold on Shelley Hirsch. Now, it seems there'll be no stopping her. The vocal acrobat, poet and performance artist was a new music original long before “downtown" moved across the East River. An original member of the avant rock band The Public Servants, Hirsch also ...

Instrumental Duos

Read "Instrumental Duos" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Converted dance orchestras often sounded like unbalanced acoustic junkyards; a single violin, cornet, trombone, clarinet, tuba, drums, banjo, and piano, all fighting for attention. The piano was meant to be the glue holding the shrill and boisterous elements together. In 1921 a prodigy pianist named Zez Confrey ...

Jon Irabagon: Invisible Horizon

Read "Invisible Horizon" reviewed by Troy Dostert


One would imagine that a musician as chameleon-like as saxophonist Jon Irabagon, capable of playing in any genre, in any context, at any time, must have a real challenge finding unexplored territory. Equally adept at mainstream blowing, as on Observer (Concord, 2009), energized free-bop with Barry Altschul's 3dom Factor, the no-holds-barred mania of his assorted outings ...

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!
