John Yao's Triceratops: How We Do

Read "How We Do" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Il quarantatreenne trombonista newyorchese di chiare origini orientali John Yao dirige in questo album un quintetto solido il cui punto di forza, oltre al leader, è costituito dalla coppia di sax, anche se tutti e cinque i musicisti impegnati fanno per intero la loro parte.

John Yao's Triceratops: How We Do

Read "How We Do" reviewed by Franz A. Matzner

Trombonist and bandleader John Yao possesses a penchant for imposing ambitious artistic constraints on himself. How We Do continues that trend with a newly formed quintet comprised only of three horns, bass, and drums.

John Yao: Flip-Flop

Read "Flip-Flop" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

A regular presence on the New York scene, Yao has worked with the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra and Arturo O'Farrill's Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
