Musician

Awakening Orchestra

Although it’s right there in the name, it’s not entirely clear whether composer/leader Kyle Saulnier’s Awakening Orchestra is in fact an orchestra, a big band or something entirely and wildly different. Encompassing broad swaths of musical style in both original and recontextualized and re-imagined compositions, the Awakening Orchestra delves deep into traditions from classical to jazz to indie rock on their debut album, volume I: this is not the answer. Interspersing original work - like the intricate, four-part, title-track symphony - with often radical interpretations of work by Samuel Barber, Radiohead, Johannes Brahms and Low, volume I: this is not the answer crafts a powerful mix of written and improvised material

Musician

Mukwuru

Born:

Mukwuru's music comes from a world of pain. When this songwriter says, 'Listen to the song I sing,' he means it. So, let the music move you and take heart. A singer/songwriter fusing jazz with many flavors . . . . This singer/songwriter crosses over many genres. It's music for the people. What you hear now is just a sampling of this singer can do. This singer/songwriter guitarist has at least 50 songs under his belt. For the Jazz purist - a concert of pure jazz. For the people who just like good music - mix it up. For the socially conscious and those who want to join the protest, 'Know What Matters' and 'Can You Imagine' gives you something to think about

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!
