Read "Phil Ranelin Collected 2003-2019" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero


Il trombonista Phil Ranelin—classe 1939—rientra a buon diritto nella lunga schiera di unsung heroes, musicisti ai margini della notorietà che da sempre costellano le vicende della musica afroamericana e ne determinano spesso pagine significative.

Nat Birchall: Obeah Man

Read "Obeah Man" reviewed by Chris May


Welcome to the latest analog-era time warp... the vinyl revival has rebirthed the 45rpm seven-inch jazz single. The format faded away in the 1960s. Even back then, chart hits such as Stan Getz's “Desafinado" (Verve, 1962) were freak events, but before the coming of album playing FM radio stations, an edited version of an album track ...

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!
