One Man’s Jazz Show 1200th Show Special

Read "One Man’s Jazz Show 1200th Show Special" reviewed by Maurice Hogue


This episode of One Man's Jazz marks the 1200th since its very first show at CKUW FM in Winnipeg. It moved over to taintradio.org in early 2012. One of the mantras of the show has always been that the show was about the music and the musicians who make it. I had no illusions of becoming--let ...

ITACA: Vortex

Read "Vortex" reviewed by Neri Pollastri


Il quartetto ITACA, protagonista di questa diciassettesima uscita di nusica.org, deve il proprio nome all'incontro dei due paesi d'origine dei suoi componenti.

His various See Through groupings allow him to pursue his muse wherever it leads: See Through Two's Slow Bend (All- Set!, 2016) has him teamed up with fellow bassist Rob Clutton for ...

Lina Allemano Four: Vegetables

Read "Vegetables" reviewed by Troy Dostert


Trumpeter Lina Allemano is one of those artists whose boundless creativity requires numerous outlets for its adequate expression. Her Ohrenschmaus trio is a hard-driving unit that possesses a tenacious energy but somehow leaves room for adventitious excursions.

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!
