Marian McPartland's Piano Jazz with Frank Zappa

Read "Marian McPartland's Piano Jazz with Frank Zappa" reviewed by Ken Dryden

Although many fans of Marian McPartland's long running NPR series heard former Frank Zappa sideman George Duke's guest appearance on Marian McPartland's Piano Jazz, few are likely to be aware of Zappa's own visit to the program, which took place in early 1988, just prior to the start of what would be his final tour. McPartland's ...

Dave Brubeck Quartet at the 1993 Montreux-Detroit Jazz Festival

Read "Dave Brubeck Quartet at the 1993 Montreux-Detroit Jazz Festival" reviewed by Ken Dryden

Public radio listeners were frequently frustrated when the Chicago Jazz Festival and Montreux-Detroit Jazz Festival offered live satellite feeds to stations on the identical weekend (Labor Day), causing program directors to typically air one or the other, unless they chose to archive and rebroadcast the alternate. Montreux-Detroit's lineup rivaled Chicago's, but the Motor City ...

Read "From Ragtime to Rock-A History of American Music  (1970 Today Show Special)" reviewed by Ken Dryden

When I attended the 2001 IAJE Conference in New York City, I made one of my first trips to Fred Cohen's Jazz Record Center, a mandatory stop for jazz collectors visiting the Big Apple. Within the LP bins I found an unusual record which was the soundtrack to a Today Special (broadcast January 13, 1970) that ...

Joe Pass Live at the Four Queens Hotel, Las Vegas, 1988

Read "Joe Pass Live at the Four Queens Hotel, Las Vegas, 1988" reviewed by Ken Dryden

By the time of his death from cancer in 1994, Joe Pass was widely recognized as one of the top jazz guitarists of all time, especially for his virtuoso solo performances. Prior to his passing, I had an opportunity to do a phone interview with Pass and was rather surprised that the guitarist found it difficult ...

Read "Marian McPartland's Piano Jazz with Nellie Lutcher" reviewed by Ken Dryden

I had never heard of Nellie Lutcher when she appeared on Marian McPartland's Piano Jazz during the mid-1980s, but I was taken with her right away. With her playful vocals and swinging piano, Lutcher was famous for a time during the 1940s, but her record sales declined during the following decade and after being dropped by ...

Dominique Eade on Mountain Stage

Read "Dominique Eade on Mountain Stage" reviewed by Ken Dryden

One of the most intriguing singers to emerge on the jazz scene during the 1990s was Dominique Eade, a gifted, chance-taking alto with a very expressive voice. Her considerable abilities as a composer and arranger, and her desire to seek deserving but less frequently performed songs, along with surrounding herself with top-flight musicians add to her ...

Read "Dave Brubeck at the Chicago Jazz Festival August 31, 2001" reviewed by Ken Dryden

Over the past half century, the Dave Brubeck Quartet has undoubtedly been featured on numerous broadcasts on several continents, few of which have ever been issued by legitimate record labels. But this Labor Day weekend set from the 2001 Chicago Jazz Festival is rather special, as it not only includes his current quartet but also revisits ...

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.
