The Very Singular Mr. Ran Blake

Read "The Very Singular Mr. Ran Blake" reviewed by Duncan Heining

There have been few American composers and musicians, with the ability to encapsulate their country's music in all its racial and ethnic complexity. We might perhaps point to Aaron Copland, Leonard Bernstein, Charles Ives and perhaps, in their own distaff ways, Harry Partch and Steve Reich. In jazz, their number is fewer still--Duke Ellington and George ...

Emmet Cohen Trio: Dirty in Detroit

Read "Dirty in Detroit" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

It's very comforting to know that, in a year of intense turmoil on every possible level, firebrand pianist Emmet Cohen bookended an otherwise dire 2018 with his hotly-received Masters Legacy Series Volume 2, featuring Ron Carter, and ended the year with this palpably joyful romp Dirty In Detroit.

Kenny Barron: Concentric Circles

Read "Concentric Circles" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

Hard to believe that, as Kenny Barron turns 75, Concentric Circles is his Blue Note debut, one that is as muscular, fleet, and entertaining as any debut by any man two-thirds his age. Trust Barron's deeply-versed quintet to swing like a big band plus, and “DPW" leaps out at you with a jumping, bop ...

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.
