Heavy Rotation For A Pandemic Summer

Read "Heavy Rotation For A Pandemic Summer" reviewed by Mark Corroto

In the summer of 2020 one result of the COVID-19 isolation, and artists inability to tour and perform is that they have time to deal with projects halted by this pandemic.

Read "Morning Patches" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Frutto di un set nel quale l'improvvisazione iniziava ben prima della performance (i musicisti non avevano mai suonato assieme, il concerto è stato pensato solo la sera precedente e a mezz'ora dall'inizio non era ancora certo che si tenesse), questo lavoro è stato registrato la mattina del 15 settembre 2018 nella chiesta di San Martino di ...

Silvia Bolognesi Young Shouts: Alive Shouts: An Homage to Bessie Jones

Read "Alive Shouts: An Homage to Bessie Jones" reviewed by Ian Patterson

But when the source is but a launching pad for personal expression then the results can be vital and unique. In celebrating the music of American gospel-cum-folk singer Bessie Jones (1902-1984), Silvia Bolognesi's Young Shouts—an all ...

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.
