Read "Polaris" reviewed by C. Andrew Hovan

Growing Older Jazzfully

Buddy Rich: The Beat Goes On

Read "Buddy Rich: The Beat Goes On" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Luis Perdomo: Walking Towards the Light

Read "Luis Perdomo: Walking Towards the Light" reviewed by R.J. DeLuke


Pianist Luis Perdomo's fingers dart across the keys, eloquently telling the stories that traverse his mind in that instant; doing so in a manner that enraptures an audience. He moves people, and does so in a manner that appears, on the surface, easy. Like great athletes. Like other great musicians. This is one of the finer ...

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!
