MUSICIAN Born:

Thomas Chapin

A versatile multi-instrumentalist, bandleader and composer, in the 80s and 90s, Chapin led a trio performing his own music playing in New York City’s downtown scene, and at festivals and clubs around the world. An outstanding composer of larger works as well, he sometimes augmented the trio with strings and horn ensembles. Though leukemia tragically ended his life in 1998 at age 40, Thomas Chapin left behind a legacy of many excellent albums and performances, and a reputation as one of jazz’s more extraordinary musicians and one of the few musicians to exist in both the worlds of the downtown, experimentalist scene and mainstream jazz

Omri Ziegele Tomorrow Trio: All Those Yesterdays

Read "All Those Yesterdays" reviewed by Mark Corroto

It's been more than twenty years since the world lost saxophonist Thomas Chapin. If you were to conduct a search like Tibetan Buddhists looking for the next incarnation of the Dalai Lama, the signs and symbols you would sift through are of course recordings. All Those Yesterdays may be all the proof one needs to adjudge ...

Mario Pavone: Philosophy

Read "Philosophy" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

Ci sono musicisti che percorrono con discrezione il proprio itinerario artistico e, pur senza collocarsi nel novero dei protagonisti, si ritagliano un ruolo importante di connettori, di tenaci tessitori delle trame che rendono vitale e significativo un periodo artistico. Il contrabbassista Mario Pavone è senz'altro uno di questi. Un musicista prezioso, prodigo di iniziativa. Lo abbiamo ...

Thelonious Monk Revisited

Read "Thelonious Monk Revisited" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

Thelonious Monk once said “play what you want and let the public pick up on what you are doing even if it does take them 15, 20 years." Luckily, he lived long enough to become fully embraced and celebrated before his passing. However, it's after his death that his music has really become central to the ...

Marco Colonna

Read "Marco Colonna" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

1. Denis Colin Trio, Fluide (In Situ, 1998). Un disco strepitoso, all'apice della concezione del trio di Denis Colin. Il suono del suo clarinetto basso è stata sempre fonte di ispirazione per me. È il meno “classico" dei francesi e questo disco si fregia della maestria di Ramon Lopez. Inoltre è una sorta di concept, ...

Read "Stefano Pastor" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

1. Ludwig van Beethoven, Concerto per violino e orchestra op. 61 in RE maggiore, David Oistrakh, André Cluytens, French National Radio Orchestra (EMI, 1959). Da tempo sono tornato a frequentare il repertorio violinistico di matrice euro-colta dopo anni di indagine sull'improvvisazione. L'occasione è resa maggiormente suggestiva dal fatto di avvalermi di un violino di ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
