Part 1 | Part 2 Every year the 'Best-of' game is underway again. But, “best of what?" is the immediate question. It's almost impossible for fishes of prey to hunt in a huge herring swarm, or for birds of prey to hunt in those huge budgerigar swarms. 'The best' is a choice from the ...

Portuguese drummer Joao Lencastre's tune Departure seemed like the right track to end a show, but perhaps I saved the best for last as well. His new recording Parallel Realities is a gem.

Read "The People Look Like Flowers at Last" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Con il precedente Pearl Before Swine il chitarrista e compositore canadese Tony Wilson si era rivelato al di qua dell'Atlantico con un album di debordante energia, un frullato di generi e stili risolto con straordinario controllo e rigore che, scommettiamo, avrebbe mandato in brodo di giuggiole un tipo come Frank Zappa. Con questo The People Look ...

Non commettete lo stesso errore: documentatevi sul chitarrista canadese e soprattutto recuperate ed ascoltate la sua musica. Che è vitale, onnivora, debordante, caustica, dolce, imprevedibile, ad alto voltaggio, densa, irriverente. Frank Zappa ...

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.
