Sara Gazarek: Thirsty Ghost

Read "Thirsty Ghost" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Le vocalist emerse dopo il 2010 (Cécile McLorin Salvant, Jazzmeia Horn, Veronica Swift, Cyrille Aimée ecc...) hanno messo un po' in ombra quelle del decennio precedente come Kate McGarry, Gretchen Parlato e appunto Sara Gazarek. È piuttosto buffo che l'interprete californiana (nata a Seattle ma a losangelina dal 2000) continui a essere votata nel critics poll ...

Kurt Elling: The Questions

Read "The Questions" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

How does one grapple with existence and its juxtaposition against the present state of affairs? That's the question that hangs heaviest over The Questions.

Andrew Vogt: For Free

Read "For Free" reviewed by Hrayr Attarian

Bassist Andrew Vogt's engaging EP, the entirely improvised For Free, serves as a teaser for two of his upcoming 2017 recordings.

Hans Luchs: Time Never Pauses

Read "Time Never Pauses" reviewed by Budd Kopman

While it does not scream downtown, avant-garde, uber originality, guitarist Hans Luchs debut recording, Time Never Pauses, is far from a vanilla, “jazz as style" offering, and, in fact has much going for it. For one thing, his band, consisting of drummer George Fludas, bassist Clark Sommers, pianist Stu Mindeman and Shaun Johnson on ...

Hans Luchs: Time Never Pauses

Read "Time Never Pauses" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Chicago-based guitarist Hans Luchs draws more from the recent than far past. More John Abercrombie and John Scofield than Wes Montgomery or Grant Green. His debut recording Time Never Pauses is a collection of eight original compositions and two transformed standards reveals the continued refining of modern jazz composition well past the head-solo section-head style of ...

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.
