Moers Festival Interviews: Julien Desprez

Read "Moers Festival Interviews: Julien Desprez" reviewed by Martin Longley

Mark Harvey Group, Thumbscrew & Rez Abbasi

Read "Mark Harvey Group, Thumbscrew & Rez Abbasi" reviewed by Maurice Hogue


No matter who pianist Russ Lossing chooses for his various trio projects, they always work! His new Mood Suite, with Mark Helias on bass and Eric McPherson on drums is excellent.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
