“Saul is a consummate musician, a person who is aware of the feelings of others and a person who is gentle in that sense. He is everything I could ask for in a bandmate.”– SONNY ROLLINS “Saul has it all together and is a positive force in the world of the guitar. He plays hip melodies, which he’s totally in touch with when improvising. His harmonies, both with his impeccable comping and chord soloing, employ refreshing voicings, and certainly keep the listener involved. – GENE BERTONCINI “An accomplished guitarist” – THE WALL STREET JOURNAL “The great unsung hero of jazz guitar in New York City…an economy of notes and laser-like purpose define Saul ‘Zeb’ Rubin” – LUCID CULTURE Although his career has taken him around the world, guitarist Saul Rubin occupies a unique place in New York jazz as a musician, producer, impresario and personality

Some Kind Of Normal—The new, East Coast Jazz Festival

Read "Some Kind Of Normal—The new, East Coast Jazz Festival" reviewed by Peter Rubie


Todd Barkan is a Jazz Club owner, which is a bit like saying Sonny Rollins is a saxophonist. It doesn't really tell you very much unless you already know about them. But it's a start. After a year of the plague (Covid-19 in case you're in doubt), being a club owner is not unlike being a ...

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!
