Un spettro musicale piuttosto ampio, che abbraccia code di free ed echi rurali americani. Un songbook che, se ben sfruttato, rappresenta un ottimo punto di partenza per esplorazioni anche avventurose. A patto di averne il ...

Given all this, it ...

Read "Live at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts" reviewed by Alexander M. Stern

There is no doubt that Jews have contributed as much to the evolution of jazz as any ethnic group. A short list of great Jewish jazz musicians would include Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, Stan Getz, Al Cohn, Zoot Sims, and Paul Desmond.

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.
