Rob Mazurek

Rob Mazurek is a multidisciplinary artist/abstractivist, with a focus on electro-acoustic composition, improvisation, performance, painting, sculpture, video, film and installation, who spent much of his creative life in Chicago, and then Brazil. He currently lives and works in Marfa Texas with his wife Britt Mazurek. Mazurek was born in 1965 in Jersey City, New Jersey. In 1975 he moved with his family to a suburb of Chicago where he started playing cornet at the age of 10. A confrontation with the music of Sun Ra at the age of 16 at the Chicago Jazz Festival in 1981 had inspired Mazurek to want to become a serious composer performer

DST: Kinetic

Read "Kinetic" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

Il duo DST, nato dall'incontro di Alberto Collodel e Simone Di Benedetto, si era già messo in luce nel 2017, pubblicando Il Sistema Periodico, lavoro ispirato all'opera di Primo Levi, che scavava con atteggiamento riflessivo ed esplorativo nella suggestione della scienza chimica e nella narrazione del grande autore, tra ragione e memoria. Arriva ora al secondo ...

James Brandon Lewis / Chad Taylor: Live In Willisau

Read "Live In Willisau" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Saxophonist James Brandon Lewis and drummer Chad Taylor's 2017 studio session Radiant Imprints (Musicube/Off, 2018) was hailed by many critics and fans alike as one of the best recordings of 2018.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
