The University of North Florida Jazz Ensemble 1: Through His Eyes: For Bunky Green

Read "Through His Eyes: For Bunky Green" reviewed by Jack Bowers

It’s not often that a musical tribute is bestowed on one who is alive and able to hear it, even less common when the honoree is able to play an active role in the proceedings.

The University of North Florida Jazz Ensemble 1: Second Thoughts

Read "Second Thoughts" reviewed by Jack Bowers

I would love to hear critics of jazz education who argue that students are taught “by the numbers” and can’t grasp the finer points of the music try to explain away albums such as this one by the University of North Florida’s superb (and consistently swinging) Jazz Ensemble 1.

The University of North Florida Jazz Ensemble 1: Things to Come

Read "Things to Come" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Things to Come, the first album by the University of North Florida’s superlative Jazz Ensemble I under its new director, Keith Javors, easily affirms that UNF’s long–standing tradition of excellence, established under the late Rich Matteson, is unequivocally alive and well. No shaky links in this chain; the ensemble is impressive on every number while the ...

The University of North Florida Jazz Ensemble 1: Seems Like Old Times

Read "Seems Like Old Times" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Jazz musicians seldom need a special reason to play — but on the other hand, having a special reason can often enliven the creative impulse.

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.
