Dimitri Gollety

HIS MUSICS ———— His heart balances and dances on bossa nova, but Dimitri is “jazzing" instinctively everything he plays. Whether Funk, RnB, Rock, Pop or Blues, his playing and his musical chords give a more or less jazz colours to each of his creations and arrangements. He owes his inspiration to very great artists who have made significant contributions to him throughout their productions over the past 30 years. One with which he feels the most intimate is Al Jarreau. It also owes much to George Duke in terms of musical arrangements. Of course he gives a high gratitude to Carlos Antonio Jobim whose works inspire many of his compositions in Bossa Nova

Martha Wash

Martha Wash’s new album, Love & Conflict, promises to take fans in a fascinating and perhaps unexpected new direction.

Lauren Bush

Originally born and raised in Canada, Lauren relocated to London to pursue music on a new level just over 3 years ago. Daughter of an accomplished jazz trumpeter father and music teacher mother, it is no surprise that Lauren grew up to have such an aptitude for music. She ignored her gift for many years, certain that music would only be a hobby; taking voice lessons but was too afraid to perform. In 2004, on a whim, Lauren auditioned for her university big band, won the position and never looked back. Traveling extensively around North America, Lauren has had some amazing opportunities to perform

Sonia Johnson

The artist garnered critical acclaim for her first release. This first production allowed the jazz vocalist to gain recognition in her artistic field and new collaborations arose, such as her participation in Frédéric Alarie’s project Sous Hôte Tension part of the 2006 edition of the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal. Sharing a common vision of jazz music, Frédéric and Sonia decided to explore composing together, and were then joined by pianist Luc Beaugrand and drummer Camil Belisle

The Spice Cabinet

The answer to Beijing’s party-cum-creative music scene, the Spice Cabinet, let by keyboardist Terry Hsieh blends Funk, Bebop, R&B, and even Spaghetti Westerns to form a worldview that is epic and playful in its explorations, known as "Deathbop". Born from the mind of veteran session musician and jazz trombonist Terry Hsieh during the beginning of his 8-year voyage to Beijing, The Spice Cabinet represents the handshake of cultures when people of vastly different backgrounds bond together over the shared love of jazz and pop music. Their style combines the cinematic orchestration, multiculturalism, rambunctious energy and production value of a pop concert, with the intense focus and virtuosity of their shared background in jazz improvisation

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
