The Art Ensemble of Chicago: We Are on the Edge: A 50th Anniversary Celebration

Read "We Are on the Edge: A 50th Anniversary Celebration" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

Quanta storia. Nel 1969 Roscoe Mitchell, Joseph Jarman e il più riluttante Malachi Favors, spinti dalla lungimiranza avventurosa di Lester Bowie, si trasferirono a Parigi, accolti dalla comunità degli artisti e degli appassionati con grande attenzione. Tra questi, c'era il batterista e promotore parigino Claude Delcloo, particolarmente attivo e in contatto fin dal 1968 con l'AACM ...

Born of Chicago's Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM), the band sojourned to Paris and soon changed its name to The Art Ensemble Of Chicago to reflect the corroborative ...

Cecil Taylor: 1929-2018

Read "Cecil Taylor: 1929-2018" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

As he approached the age of ninety, Cecil Taylor could be excused for some of his indulgences. Still highly opinionated on a range of subjects; still chain smoking, still harboring old resentments, and so on. For a man from whom new ideas sprang constantly and effortlessly, Taylor could get stuck in real-world dramas. He had a ...

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.
