TriBeCaStan: New Deli

Read "New Deli" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

TriBeCaStan is a mythical kingdom or mystical state (or both) founded by John Kruth and Jeff Greene, built upon music brought within its walls from Western China, Cuba, Morocco, Uzbekistan and just about any and every where else.

TriBeCaStan: Strange Cousin

Read "Strange Cousin" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

The musical state of mind known as TriBeCaStan was co-founded by multi-instrumentalist John Kruth (whose more colorful credits include “banshee mandolin" for rock bands the Meat Puppets and Violent Femmes) and ethnomusicologist Jeff Green.

Tribecastan Releases "Strange Cousin" on 7/14

Amidst Holland Tunnel traffic is John Kruth, decked out like a Technicolor Bedouin conducting the blaring horns of frustrated drivers with a pencil and channeling a hybrid symphony of New York noise.

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.
