Tim Warfield: Tim Warfield's Jazzy Christmas

Read "Tim Warfield's Jazzy Christmas" reviewed by Edward Blanco

Veteran saxophonist Tim Warfield delivers one of the finest modern Christmas jazz albums around on Jazzy Christmas.

Captain Black Big Band: Captain Black Big Band

Read "Captain Black Big Band" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

The man behind the Captain Black Big Band is pianist Orrin Evans.

Neil Podgurski's New Fire: Revolutions

Read "Revolutions" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

There's a lot of joy and quirky, off-center energy in pianist Neil Podgurski's playing; his style brings Bud Powell or Elmo Hope to mind. Podgurski is the leader of the group New Fire, and he is also the composer of all the tunes on the band's debut disc, Revolutions.It's great to hear a debut ...

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.
