Ron Miles: Stone/Blossom

Read "Stone/Blossom" reviewed by Matthew Miller

It's no secret why Ron Miles is one of the most highly regarded trumpeters of his generation. His rich, burnished tone and supple lyricism have won over Bill Frisell and Wayne Horvitz--two of jazz's leading aesthetic visionaries--along with fans who appreciate understatement, whispered dissonance, wry humor. All of these attributes can be found on Stone/Blossom, the ...

Ron Miles: Stone / Blossom

Read "Stone / Blossom" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Ron Miles' trumpet has such an appealing tone that I'd eagerly listen to him play the songs of Johnny Cash, Lee Morgan, or Earth, Wind and Fire.

Read "Laughing Barrel" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

The idea for Laughing Barrel, the title of trumpeter Ron Miles' latest CD, comes from the writings of Ralph Ellison, the great African-American author.

The Ron Miles Quartet: Laughing Barrel

Read "Laughing Barrel" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Trumpeter Ron Miles is a bit of jazz anomaly, in that he has taken to shunning the urban genres of jazz. His recent releases are all about wide-open spaces and Americana. Nowhere is this better heard than on his Sterling Circle debut, Heaven (Sterling Circle SCS 151, 2002). On this record from last year, Miles dueted ...

Ron Miles Quartet: Laughing Barrel

Read "Laughing Barrel" reviewed by Mark Corroto

The concept of jazz has seemingly always been an urban phenomenon. From Louis Armstrong’s move to Chicago to the post-war Charlie Parker revolution--and more recently, Wynton Marsalis’ uptown vs. downtown music debate--jazz concepts and jazz sounds have traditionally gravitated toward cities. But inside jazz itself, traditions are continuously rewritten. As the music has ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
