Guitarist/Bassist Aaron Germain Displays Monumental Compositional, Instrumental Achievement With 'Bell Projections,' Arriving May 14 On Aaron Germain Music

Alan Hall: Heroes, Saints and Clowns

Read "Heroes, Saints and Clowns" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki


Ratatet, the sextet led by drummer Alan Hall, doesn't seem to quite fit into a musical box of any style or shape.

Alan Ferber Big Band: Jigsaw

Read "Jigsaw" reviewed by Jack Bowers


The Jigsaw mapped out by trombonist Alan Ferber's splendid New York City-based ensemble comprises a number of dissimilar pieces, drawn from a broad range of musical patterns, which makes its assemblage arduous yet ultimately rewarding. Ferber's sophisticated arrangements manifest a pensive, and at times ethereal, temper that is far removed from the realm of flag-wavers and ...

McCandless, Taylor, Balducci, Rabbia: Evansiana

Read "Evansiana" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

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!
