Marcus Miller: America's AmBASSadoor

Read "Marcus Miller: America's AmBASSadoor" reviewed by Jim Worsley

Marcus Miller is most often described as a jazz, funk, soul, fusion, and R&B bassist. As much as that is accurate, it is a description that falls well short of the mark. Miller is a high-end musical sponge who manages to incorporate today's cultures and rhythms into his compositions, layered within the framework of sound he ...

Music Education Monday: Feeling the funk with Paul Jackson and Mike Clark

Paul Jackson Trio: Groove Or Die

Read "Groove Or Die" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

Groove Or Die. So says Paul Jackson, bassist extraordinaire. It's clear that the decision isn't one that's troubled Jackson, or fellow band members Xantoné Blacq and French percussionist Tony Match, for too long--this album is all about the groove. Or, to be more specific, the grooves. Jackson has been a first-call bassist for many ...

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.
