Ran Blake: Something To Live For

Read "Something To Live For" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Con copertina diversa, torna a quasi diciannove anni dalla sua prima edizione (1999; incisione Boston, marzo '98) un album certamente prezioso (per quanto magari un po' discontinuo) di quel singolare pianista (e personaggio tout court) che è Ran Blake, oggi ottantatreenne.

Ella Fitzgerald: Something To Live For

Read "Something To Live For" reviewed by David Adler

Ran Blake: Something to Live For

Read "Something to Live For" reviewed by Robert Spencer

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.
