A Cool World Christmas: Carla Bley, Trio West and Wynton Marsalis

Read "A Cool World Christmas: Carla Bley, Trio West and Wynton Marsalis" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

It is easy to be cynical about holiday music. On the mainstream popular music front, these releases are often nakedly commercial, marketed with a fixed (and very large) target population in mind. And a good many of such recordings are truly bad. In the run up to Christmas 2009, the marketplace is clotted with a legion ...

Tobias Gebb & Trio West: An Upper West Side Story

Read "An Upper West Side Story" reviewed by Michael P. Gladstone

Not only does pianist Eldad Zvulun employ Jamal's idiosyncratic use of spacing but drummer Gebb is all a-chatter with ...

Trio West: Trio West Plays Holiday Songs

Read "Trio West Plays Holiday Songs" reviewed by Michael P. Gladstone

It isn't every new release that provides nostalgia without even playing it. Trio West's record label, Yummy House, is an exact look-alike of Columbia vinyl releases circa 1960. Without having the actual Columbia logo, this album has the same distinctive red, white and black label with the Columbia “stereo arrow" displayed. I felt like I was ...

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.
