Il Meglio del 2018 Secondo Nicola Negri

Read "Il Meglio del 2018 Secondo Nicola Negri" reviewed by Nicola Negri

Per chi non se ne fosse accorto, stiamo vivendo un momento musicale straordinario, fatto di ricerca senza confini, ibridazioni linguistiche e condivisione di esperienze spesso agli antipodi--insomma diametralmente opposto al periodo storico, in cui l'ignoranza miope delle nuove destre vorrebbe tenerci divisi, ancorati ad un'idea identitaria ormai superata dalla storia. Dal jazz più classico alle ...

Read "John Sharpe's Best Releases Of 2018" reviewed by John Sharpe

C'è un ostinato sui ...

Sylvie Courvoisier Trio: Double Windsor

Read "Double Windsor" reviewed by Henning Bolte

The piano trio is the supreme discipline in jazz. Through rich possibilities, it functions as a strong filter sifting out those few who were and are able to set new standards.

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.
