Chicago Underground Trio: Chronicle

Read "Chronicle" reviewed by Seamus Seoighe

Opsvik & Jennings: Commuter Anthems

Read "Commuter Anthems" reviewed by Seamus Seoighe

Eivind Opsvik and Aaron Jennings describe Commuter Anthems as such: “If you've ever wondered what it would sound like if a bassist/tunesmith from Norway teamed up with a guitarist/software enthusiast from Oklahoma to make music--well, this is it.

If the fingers always fall at precisely the right time, to some extent the actual notes don't even matter. It all swings too ...

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!
