A top guitarist from Sweden, Rolf Jardemark is a versatile player with a long series of recordings for the Imogena label. Jardemark started on guitar when he was 12. ”I bought my first guitar from a friend for one dollar! I had no teacher.

Jardemark went to music college when he was 16 and after that went on to The Academy of Music in Gothenburg - studying classical guitar but playing jazz at night


Hentoff helped pave way for jazz journalism’s acceptance

Read "Hentoff helped pave way for jazz journalism’s acceptance" reviewed by Jim Trageser

Nat Hentoff's passing last week left me feeling, well, old. Whenever we lose a mentor--a grandparent, a teacher, someone who encouraged us--it's a reminder of our own mortality, that we are, in the parlance of football coaches, the next ones up. I don't feel anywhere near to ready or worthy or capable of assuming ...

Read "Promises to Burn" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

The artist title is a hint: “The Janice Borla Group." Borla is a vocalist with a reputation for taking chances as evidenced on her three previous recordings, all released on Tall Grass records, From Every Angle (2006), Agents of Change (2003) and Lunar Octave (1996).

David Ian: Valentine’s Day

Read "Valentine’s Day" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

"A familiar world of jazz classics with the vintage feel..." Is it possible for jazz to have the same “historically-informed performance" preoccupation as classical music has since the 1970s?.

Mort Weiss: Mort Weiss Meets Bill Cunliffe

Read "Mort Weiss Meets Bill Cunliffe" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

If it is a Mort Weiss recording, bebop cannot be very far away. Competent bop clarinetists are as scarce as hen's teeth, the most critically accepted being Tony Scott, Buddy Defranco and Weiss. Weiss' most recent recordings, Mort Weiss Meets Sam Most (SMS Jazz, 2006) and B3 and Me (SMS Jazz, 2006), reflect his solid bop ...

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.
