Poetry and Jazz: A Chronology

Read "Poetry and Jazz: A Chronology" reviewed by Duncan Heining

My intention here is to offer a detailed but inevitably incomplete chronology of poetry and jazz. The focus is solely on the combination of the two art forms in performance, not on poetry about jazz or jazz musicians or poetry inspired by jazz but not performed to music. My definition of 'poetry' is fairly broad and ...

Read "A dialogo con Giancarlo Mazzù e Luciano Troja" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Il chitarrista calabrese Giancarlo Mazzù e il pianista siciliano Luciano Troja formano ormai da molti anni una coppia artistica molto affiatata. Messisi in luce nell'interessante quartetto Mahanada, che realizzò tre album tra il 2004 e il 2008 (leggi la recensione di Mahanatta), i due hanno poi consolidato la loro intesa artistica pubblicando i due volumi di ...

Rocco John Iacovone: Peace and Love: A Tribute to Will Connell

Read "Peace and Love: A Tribute to Will Connell" reviewed by Troy Dostert

Rocco John Iacovone has been an under-sung presence in the New York avant-garde scene for some time. Despite several recordings to his name, he's yet to get much big-time recognition.

The Rocco John Group: Devotion

Read "Devotion" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

La devozione cui si fa riferimento nel titolo dell'album è quella che Rocco John Iacovone nutre nei confronti dei grandi maestri della storia del jazz (e della musica in generale). Qualcuno citato esplicitamente nei titoli dei brani (Dolphy, Bach, Parker). Altri rievocati per assonanza (Cy-cology, basata sugli accordi di “All of Me"). Altri ancora, più poeticamente, ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
