Derek Trucks: Chops, Romance & Dance

Read "Derek Trucks: Chops, Romance & Dance" reviewed by Alan Bryson


It's a good bet that most of us have heard people say they don't like jazz, or even worse, drop the H-bomb, “I hate jazz." If you choose to engage, the key is to tread lightly and tailor an approach that considers the tastes and sensibilities of the other person. The “So You Don't Like Jazz" ...

The Thing with Joe McPhee: She Knows...

Read "She Knows..." reviewed by Mark Corroto


After nearly three dozen releases over seventeen years, it was announced in 2019 that the trio The Thing would be on a hiatus from touring and recording.

Saxophonist Rudresh Mahanthappa is one such omnivore, maybe best described as an alpha predator. His music, whether it is advancing modern jazz or fusing the Carnatic music of southern India with his American experience, occupies the highest level ...

Matthew Jacobson: Rituals Of Sound And Time

Read "Matthew Jacobson: Rituals Of Sound And Time" reviewed by Ian Patterson


For someone whose livelihood and lifeblood are all about rhythms, the COVID-19 lockdown, with its very different rhythms, must be extremely frustrating.

Geir Åge Johnsen/Fredrik Sahlander/Bernt Moen 1+1=3 Losen Records 2019 What exactly does this title signify? It isn't quite clear, seeing as there are three players here and each counts as a positive one in any equation.

Aki Takase: In The River's Flow

Read "Aki Takase:  In The River's Flow" reviewed by Ian Patterson


After forty plus years of recording and touring Aki Takase could be forgiven for easing up a little, for pulling back on the reins. Instead, the Japanese pianist/composer's creative fire is burning as strongly as ever. Since turning seventy in 2018, Takase has released five albums--four in 2019 alone. This output of creative energy showcases the ...

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!
