Yoni Kretzmer 2 Bass Quartet: Book II

Read "Book II" reviewed by John Sharpe

One of the major innovations of the 1960s New Thing was to liberate the so called rhythm section from time keeping duties. The role of the bass in particular was transformed, allowing it leeway to sit alongside the front line. But there was still sometimes a need to impart momentum. One solution was to double up, ...

Matt Bauder: Paper Gardens

Read "Paper Gardens" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

The album title, Paper Gardens, parallels saxophonist Matt Bauder's work for an architecture firm, concerning the design of a new garden for an elementary school.

Tatsuya Nakatani: Essences and Abiogenesis

Read "Tatsuya Nakatani: Essences and Abiogenesis" reviewed by Clifford Allen

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!
