Jerry Granelli: Updating Music of Past Heroes

Read "Jerry Granelli: Updating Music of Past Heroes" reviewed by R.J. DeLuke

"I've earned the privilege of not playing anything I don't want to play," says drummer Jerry Granelli, whose past is replete with the names of many greats in jazz for whom he supplied rhythmic support--sometimes force--over several decades. “That used to be a fear," he adds, “You figured if you turned something down, the ...

Lili Añel: Better Days

Read "Better Days" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

Singer-songwriter Lili Añel and Better Days sound cut straight out of the northeast US. It's more than the geographic location of Añel's birth (Spanish Harlem, “El Barrio," in New York) or where she was raised (South Bronx), and it's more than where she has based her career (Philadelphia, PA). It's in the sound and attitude of ...

Jimmy Haslip: Amperes Beyond The BASSics, Part 1

Read "Jimmy Haslip: Amperes Beyond The BASSics, Part 1" reviewed by Jim Worsley

The name Jimmy Haslip needs no introduction. So, he doesn't get one. Seriously, we had a lot of ground to cover and he had so many great stories and interesting asides to share that we are breaking the interview into two parts as it is. So, without further ado... All About Jazz: I ...

Lettuce: Elevate

Read "Elevate" reviewed by Doug Collette

In what is perhaps an act of self-fulfilling purpose, Lettuce lives up to the title of this album, despite the fact it is not the same band that recorded Rage (Velour Recordings, 2008) or Fly (Velour Recordings, 2012). The current lineup is missing the two main instrumentalists from that pinnacle of progression: guitarist Eric Krasno and ...

Van Morrison: The Healing Game (Deluxe Edition)

Read "The Healing Game (Deluxe Edition)" reviewed by Doug Collette

As enigmatic as Van Morrison is, the archiving of his vault reveals some logic with the reissue of The Healing Game in expanded form. Following on the heels of It's Too Late to Stop Now... Volumes II, III, IV (Legacy Recordings, 2016) and The Authorized Bang Collection (Legacy Recordings, 2017), this three-CD package of one of ...

Lettuce: Witches Stew: A Tribute to Miles Davis

Read "Witches Stew: A Tribute to Miles Davis" reviewed by Doug Collette

It's a daunting task but a laudable ambition to afford direct tribute to a musician as iconic as Miles Davis and a work of his equal in stature, Bitches Brew (Columbia, 1970). But like the ensembles before them that revisited this bonafide classic, including the World Saxophone Quartet, Lettuce prove up to the task. In fact, ...

Jose James: No Beginning No End

Read "No Beginning No End" reviewed by Enrique Turpin

Tal vez no sea intención de José James (Mineápolis, 1978) reemplazar a D'Angelo en el reinado del neo-soul que se empezó a fraguar a mediados de los años 90, pero puede que lo logre sin proponérselo. En su cuarto trabajo --y primero para Blue Note-- ha recuperado el testigo que seguía en el suelo a la ...

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.
