Equally adept in classical and rock, Rave’s versatility and rich background made him more in demand in broader spheres of music as he began touring with a host of bands including rock and roll hall of famers The Shirells, cutting edge minimalist pop group Tirez Tirez, and British progressive rock group Renaissance

Read "Don't Look Back" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

The vast majority are very good, while not being great. This trio tachyphylaxis makes it difficult for the erstwhile trio leader to ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
