Vance Thompson's Five Plus Six: Such Sweet Thunder

Read "Such Sweet Thunder" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

La ricca didattica orchestrale delle università statunitensi continua a dare i suoi frutti, facendo nascere organici che non hanno molto da invidiare alle formazioni più celebrate. Questo riguarda in particolare il perfezionismo del collettivo, la flessibilità delle sue dinamiche, la tensione ritmica e l'opulenza timbrica. Il tutto entro orchestrazioni variopinte, capaci di padroneggiare un'ampia gamma espressiva ...

The Knoxville Jazz Orchestra: A Year in the Life of the Band...

Read "A Year in the Life of the Band..." reviewed by Jack Bowers

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!
