Opus 5: Introducing Opus 5

Read "Introducing Opus 5" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Collectively delivered jazz albums almost always fall into one of three categories: some are outings from neophytes looking to pool their resources, while trying to build a fan base from the ground floor up; others marry the musical skills of seasoned musicians who've crossed paths in various situations and/or share a commonality in approach; and the ...

Boris Kozlov: Double Standard

Read "Double Standard" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Selling a solo bass disc--both artistically and commercially speaking--is no easy feat.

Read "Sue Graham Mingus: All the Things You Could Be By Now If Charles' Wife Was Your Flamekeeper" reviewed by R.J. DeLuke

Charles Mingus was a larger than life figure on the music scene. Crashing. Volatile. Complex. Swinging. Intense. Delicate. Raucous and joyous. Depending on who you talk to, and maybe even what day, different images might be conjured up. Different words used to describe him by those who knew and performed with him.


Sue Mingus: "First and Foremost a Composer"

Read "Sue Mingus: "First and Foremost a Composer"" reviewed by Paul Olson

Charles Mingus (1922-1979), one of the indisputable giants of jazz, left behind a huge body of composition that, in its breadth and excellence, can be compared only to the work of Duke Ellington--or, perhaps to no one save Mingus himself.

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.
