Frank Zappa: The Grand Wazoo

Read "The Grand Wazoo" reviewed by Eric Pettine

Frank Zappa didn't invent the word “wazoo" or proliferate its usage. However, he was the first to use it in an album and song title that, surprisingly, had no accompanying provocative/potentially censorable lyrics. The Grand Wazoo is one of the most playful, scatologic-free and accessible big band jazz/rock CDs that Zappa--or anyone else--recorded. The aural quality ...

Was (Not Was): Boo!

Read "Boo!" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

E chi l'ha detto che gli anni Ottanta hanno prodotto solo ciarpame sonoro? Certo, la finezza non era annoverata tra le qualità più cool, ma di cose degne ce n'erano davvero parecchie: tra queste la indefinibile “creatura" di dance mutante ad alto tasso r&b dei detroitiani [e dove altro se no?] David Weiss e Don Fagenson, ...


Meral Guneyman: Playful Virtuosity

Read "Playful Virtuosity" reviewed by Terrell Kent Holmes

Pianist Meral Guneyman appeared to be slightly nervous when she took the stage recently at the 92nd Street Y's concert “Piano Players: New York Mix."

Jeremy Warmsley: The Art of Fiction

È quello che alla fine pensiamo sempre quando ci troviamo di fronte a un nuovo/ennesimo giovane talento che promette di riuscire a risucchiarci dentro il sogno di una melodia cui cucire i lembi delle nostre emozioni.

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
