Al Di Meola: Opus

Read "Opus" reviewed by Doug Collette

Guitarist/composer Al Di Meola explores his heritage musically and otherwise in the near hour-long Opus. Largely a solo project, the music becomes all the more compelling for an intricacy mirrored in the deceptively ornate cover art. The intimacy arising from the very first tones of “Milonga Noctiva (Wandering in the Dark)" eventually alternates overdubs ...

Kyle Shepherd: Where Dream States Meet Reality

Read "Kyle Shepherd: Where Dream States Meet Reality" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

The Standard Bank Young Artist Awards program has been shining a light on some of the best and brightest South African up-and-comers in music, drama, dance, film, and other art forms since 1984.

Four Fourty: Us+Them=1

Read "Us+Them=1" reviewed by Seton Hawkins

In an age where many albums rely on pyrotechnics, famous guest musicians or outright all-star lineups, Four Fourty offers a refreshing alternative. While each of the musicians is a solid soloist--from Mvuzo Dimba's Horace Silver-like piano playing to Vuyisile Sabongo's Maceo Parker-inspired saxophone funk--the band emphasizes the collaborative aspect of playing on Us+Them=1. The results speak ...

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.
