Alexa Tarantino: Winds of Change

Read "Winds of Change" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

Coming at her music with an impressive embrace of style and tradition, and blending a natural youthful inquisitiveness and confidence to make the music her own, saxophonist-flautist and full-of-flair composer Alexa Tarantino--along with pianist Christian Sands, bassist Joe Martin, drummer Rudy Royston and trombonist Nick Finzer--makes big strides towards the limelight on her Posi-Tone Records debut ...

Alexa Tarantino: Winds of Change

Read "Winds of Change" reviewed by Paul Rauch

It is time we stop referring to saxophonist Alexa Tarantino as one of the “on the rise" young stars in jazz. She has arrived, and by the sound of things, she is here to stay. Sure, her new release Winds of Change is her debut solo recording as a leader, but her playing is well documented ...

Nobody does big bands these days. Nobody. Not without institutional support like a university or a foundation. Not unless you are Orrin Evans.

Sean Moran Small Elephant Band: Tusk

Read "Tusk" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Il giovane chitarrista newyorchese Sean Moran riunisce in questo bel lavoro un quintetto dalle sonorità preziose e dall'incedere aconflittuale nel cui agire un ruolo assolutamente centrale gioca la composizione (tutti di Moran i nove pezzi in scaletta), con la definizione di percorsi stilistico-espressivi lucidi e coesi che sembrano rivelare un attento ascolto delle frange più avanzate ...

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.
