Galasphere 347: Galasphere 347

Read "Galasphere 347" reviewed by Glenn Astarita


The record label duly notes that the ensemble's lineup is a pedigree from estimable progressive rock-based bands such as White Willow, Henry Fool, Änglagard, The Tim Bowess band, and more. Formed in 2018, Galasphere 347 occasionally draws similarities to prog giants, Porcupine Tree and Riverside amid the electro-symphonic stylings of many outfits from the strikingly advanced ...

Meade Lux Lewis: The Blues Piano Artistry of Meade Lux Lewis

Read "The Blues Piano Artistry of Meade Lux Lewis" reviewed by Marc Davis

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!
