Various Artists: Newvelle Muri

Read "Newvelle Muri" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Ricardo Toscano: Quartet

Read "Quartet" reviewed by Ian Patterson


The debut recording as leader of alto saxophonist Ricardo Toscano might not have the most Google-friendly title, but it reflects the importance of the unit with whom this rising star of Portuguese jazz has played since 2014. Indirectly, perhaps, it could also be read as a tribute to John Coltrane's classic quartet, which seems to be ...

André Santos: Ponto De Partida

Read "Ponto De Partida" reviewed by Dave Wayne


Listening to Ponto de Partida (Starting Point), it's rather hard to believe that André Santos has been playing jazz for less than 10 years. The young Portuguese guitarist's charming, understated debut album seems like the work of an older musician: one, perhaps, with nothing to prove except for the sheer enjoyment of making music. From the ...

André Santos: Ponto de Partida

Read "André Santos: Ponto de Partida" reviewed by Phil Barnes


There is something wonderful about watching a talented musician make the leap to bandleader and composer on record for the first time. Possibilities have yet to be closed off, the inspiration simply to showcase a personal take on the music they love, the budget not even contemplating high concepts, lavish orchestras, or if you're Rick Wakeman ...

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!
