Drummers as Bandleaders: An Alternative Top Ten Albums

Read "Drummers as Bandleaders: An Alternative Top Ten Albums" reviewed by Chris May


Drummers have been key members of every band which has changed the course of jazz history, from Max Roach with Charlie Parker to Elvin Jones with John Coltrane and onwards. Yet drummers have been the leaders of a surprisingly small proportion of landmark bands themselves. Chick Webb in the 1920s was the first of the few. ...

The Road to Fusion - Lloyd, Burton, Williams, Zawinul and Miles (1967 - 1972)

Read "The Road to Fusion - Lloyd, Burton, Williams, Zawinul and Miles (1967 - 1972)" reviewed by Russell Perry


Jazz-rock fusion or, often, simply “fusion" emerged in the late '60s as the child of many mothers. Characterized by electric instruments and rock rhythms, it could be loud and fast, but just as likely, could be melodic or lyrical or funky. The Charles Lloyd Quartet, the Gary Burton Quartet, Tony Williams Lifetime and the Joe Zawinul ...

George Garzone: Sax In The City

Read "George Garzone: Sax In The City" reviewed by Jim Worsley

Alan Pasqua: Keys That Unlock Many Doors

Read "Alan Pasqua: Keys That Unlock Many Doors" reviewed by Jim Worsley


Recently, and just a few days before Thanksgiving (2019), I was thankful for the opportunity to have two separate conversations with renown pianist Alan Pasqua. As generous with his time and candid commentary as he is talented as a musician and composer, both conversations crashed the one-hour mark. For you non mathematicians, that is over two ...

Tony Williams Lifetime: Emergency!

Read "Emergency!" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff


Questo album ha rivoluzionato la musica del secolo scorso. L'affermazione è forte ma è certamente condivisa da buona parte della critica. Purtroppo è un album che non ha avuto invece grande successo di pubblico e speriamo che questa riedizione curata dalla meritoria etichetta inglese Esoteric possa, almeno in parte, sanare la situazione. Il giovane batterista Tony ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
