Tish Adams

Vocalist, Tish Adams is a favorite on New England's live music 'scene.' She has a compelling stage presence and an extensive repertoire of time-honored Standards. She offers fresh interpretations, yet sets a sentimental mood—a passionate tribute to rich Jazz tradition. Her show is seasoned with long-forgotten gems, obscure treasures and a dash of the Blues. She can burn an up-tempo swinger or melt the audience with her sensitive reading of a slow, smoky ballad. Fans compare her to the "great ladies of Jazz." Musicians call her "a natural." She has acquired a faithful following. One listen will explain why. Tish's originals are delightfully funny or as low-down as can be

This past Monday, Allmark presented his octet, a brass-rich band that gives each player a bit more time in the spotlight than the big-band format permits. For that evening, the horn line included Allmark on trumpet, Tucker Antell ...

Oh, have times changed in Newport

Oh, have times changed in Newport

There was a time after the first phase of the Newport Jazz Festival (1954-1971), that jazz pretty much was a dirty word in Newport. The city, known as a playground for the super-rich, was a Navy town transitioning into a tourist mecca. The jazz festival lost its luster after 1969 and 1971 riots by beer-swilling rowdies ...

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!
