Danny Fox Trio: Wide Eyed

Read "Danny Fox Trio: Wide Eyed" reviewed by Dave Wayne

So many jazz piano trios, so little time! With Wide Eyed, the Danny Fox Trio proves very definitively that they are worthy of your attention. Fox' wickedly humorous, tightly-conceived, multi- stylistic compositions and his trio's remarkably sensitive interplay are completely attention-grabbing. One listen was enough to make me a believer. Like a lot of the more ...

Pete Robbins Transatlantic Quartet: Live in Basel

Read "Live in Basel" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Pete Robbins, sassofonista e compositore di Brooklyn, non trova ancora alcun riscontro in Italia, a dispetto delle numerose tournèe europee effettuate. Leader di differenti formazioni, in grado di proporre sguardi antitetici al jazz odierno, Robbins con il Transatlantic Quartet sviscera una musica carica di ricchezza armonica, ritmicamente leggera e tonica, brillante per qualità solistica, bene espressa ...

Pete Robbins Transatlantic Quartet: Live In Basel

Read "Live In Basel" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Like most modern jazz players, alto saxophonist Pete Robbins works in multiple bands, playing varying styles and disciplines of this thing called jazz. Sounds reasonable, yes?

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!
