Charlie Parker: Now's The Time

Read "Now's The Time" reviewed by Karl Ackermann


In the pantheon of jazz saxophonists, Charlie Parker has been among the most transformational of artists, despite not living nearly long enough to fulfill his potential. Parker's lifetime, as a principal architect of bebop, and a self-destructive force, has been documented ad nauseam but his music continues to significantly influence new generations. Since Parker's death in ...

Joe Albany: Now's The Time

Read "Now's The Time" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey


Pianist Joe Albany (1924-1988) is a musicological artifact within an art form full of them. Most recently, Albany has garnered attention through the movie and soundtrack Low Down (Bona Fide Productions, 2014, directed by Jeff Priess) based on the bracing, stream-of-conscience memoire written by his daughter, Amy-Jo Albany.

Christy Doran's New Bag: Now's The Time

Read "Now's The Time" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff


La partenza aggressiva di “Five-Four Afro" toglie ogni dubbio: il fatto che questo quinto album del gruppo New Bag guidato dall'irlandese Christy Doran (residente in Svizzera da parecchi decenni) sia dichiaratamente un lavoro acustico non toglie neppure un grammo al peso specifico del progetto. Il pianoforte di Hans-Peter Pfammatter viene pestato a dovere e tiene la ...

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!
