Less Is More? Really?

Read "Less Is More? Really?" reviewed by Mat Marucci

There have been popular views by certain so-called experts that seem to have been accepted as dogma, the term “less is more" being one of them. However, as in any subject from sports to politics to science to religion, every pundit has an equal who has a contrary opinion. I, for one, am bothered by some ...

Steve Smith: Drummer For All Seasons

Read "Steve Smith: Drummer For All Seasons" reviewed by R.J. DeLuke

Drummer Steve Smith has traced the history of jazz drumming--pretty much most of American music drumming--in his storied career that has seen him drive big bands, small jazz combos, and fiery fusion groups, including tenures with Jean Luc Ponty and the rock band Journey. Though sometimes--as in the case of jazz-rock fusion--he was thrown ...

Read "Billy Hart: Welcoming New, Loving Old, Sounds" reviewed by R.J. DeLuke

The ubiquitous drummer Billy Hart brings a special energy to the many projects of which he is a part. A band leader, composer and educator, he's been on hundreds of albums.

Art Blakey: The Musical Drummer

Read "Art Blakey: The Musical Drummer" reviewed by Anton Rasmussen

“Jazz Washes Away the Dust of Everyday Life" --Art Blakey So said, Abdullah Ibn Buhaina (1919-1990), more widely known to the world of jazz by his pre-Islamic name: Art Blakey. Blakey was my first introduction into the musicality of jazz drumming and, in some senses, my introduction to a lifelong love of jazz.

Mike Clark: East Bay Funk

Read "Mike Clark: East Bay Funk" reviewed by George Colligan

[ Editor's Note: The following interview is reprinted from George Colligan's blog, Jazztruth]I remember the first time I heard the classic Herbie Hancock album Thrust (Columbia, 1974). It was on the radio, if you can believe it. The song “Actual Proof" burned into my brain: I had been a fan of Herbie's, especially of ...

After 15 Years, a "Caravan" Ends Its Journey

Read "After 15 Years, a "Caravan" Ends Its Journey" reviewed by Jack Bowers

For nearly fifteen years now, I've been writing two monthly columns here at All About Jazz: this one (Big Band Report) and Big Band Caravan. That is about to change. Starting next month, the two will be pared down to one inclusive column using as its title Big Band Report. So rather than searching the AAJ ...

Don Redman: Setting the Template

Read "Don Redman: Setting the Template" reviewed by Jim Gerard

As someone who came to jazz as a young man in the 1970s, I can attest that subsequent generations of both its chroniclers and, even sadder, its practitioners, have succumbed to the peculiarly and regrettable American disease of a-historicism. They've shoved jazz history through a sieve, reducing it from an epic tale of heroic ...

Andrew Cyrille / Haitian Fascination: Route de Freres

Read "Route de Freres" reviewed by Raul d'Gama Rose

To experience ecstasy without the memory of it would certainly be a travesty. Fortunately, it may now be possible to have both--to have the near-perfect memory of being in the throes of ecstasy--and it is all because of the music on Route de Frères by Andrew Cyrille and Haitian Fascination. More specifically, it is because of ...

Blackboard, Lit Screen and Red Hot Jazz

Read "Blackboard, Lit Screen and Red Hot Jazz" reviewed by Andrew J. Sammut

Teachers must find it hard to leave their job in the classroom, like Olympic runners find it hard to take their time. The best teachers educate out of reflex, and for Michael Steinman that reflex transcends classroom or course listing. Whether it's English at Nassau Community College or hot jazz on the World Wide Web, passion ...

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.
