Described by NPR host Jon Weber as “a visionary composer, an extraordinary jazz pianist and a very bright young rising star in the jazz world”, Romain Collin continues to develop his vision, combining the tradition of improvisation with sound designing and classical music.

Sachal Vasandani: Midnight Shelter

Read "Midnight Shelter" reviewed by Geno Thackara


"I'll leave you to your crowds," Sachal Vasandani murmurs to start off an album that couldn't be less suited to being with a crowd. The touch of irony is apt. The sound of Midnight Shelter is a lonely and thoughtful one (a reflection of the music's origin in a season of isolation), yet as with its ...

Geno Thackara's Best Releases of 2020

Read "Geno Thackara's Best Releases of 2020" reviewed by Geno Thackara


However strange the year has gotten, the urge to create clearly hasn't lessened at all--either that or the circumstances have left us more appreciative of art where we find it. Most likely it's some of both. Whatever the case may be, 2020 has still seen no shortage of musical treats good for the soul.

Grégoire Maret / Romain Collin / Bill Frisell: Americana

Read "Americana" reviewed by Karl Ackermann


Harmonica player and composer Grégoire Maret is not a familiar name in the U.S. but he should be. The New York-based artist has recorded with Jimmy Scott, Jacky Terrasson, Steve Coleman and Five Elements, Charlie Hunter, Terri Lyne Carrington, Pat Metheny and many others. The very bankable musician has appeared on over seventy-five releases as a ...

Read "Geno Thackara's Best Releases of 2019" reviewed by Geno Thackara


Another year, another wealth of goodies, and as usual it seems unfair to narrow down so many fine offerings to only a dozen favorites. Also as usual, there were a couple late discoveries that would have deserved to be included here last year if I'd known about them at the time. Belated credit goes to the ...

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!
