“When I was 12 my father introduced me to Scott LaFaro and when my Dad asked me, ‘what do you want to do?’ I pointed at Scott and said, ’that,’” says jazz bassist/producer Rick Kilburn. “The pursuit of music is basically the pursuit of oneself...a very spiritual undertaking,” reflects the bassist. “I strive to occupy my ...

Rocco and His Brothers, 1960

Today is the start of my annual two-week holiday visit with great film. Having spent much of my youth in the Museum of Modern Art's basement screening theater with my movie-loving artist father, watching old films with him late at night, and having taken a couple of screenwriting classes, film is another one of my passions. ...

Two Women, 1960

Two Women, 1960

First, Italy still had a stomach for revisiting the horrors unleashed on the country by fascists and Nazis up until the last months of the war less than 20 years earlier.

Girl With a Suitcase, 1961

Girl With a Suitcase is one of my favorite Claudia Cardinale films. There's a unsettled quality about her that haunts. The post-neorealist film was directed by Valerio Zurlini, a lesser-known but superb Italian director. Among his best films are The Girls of San Frediano (1955) and Violent Summer (1959). But I chose Girl With a Suitcase ...

Pete Rugolo and the Beaver

Pete Rugolo and the Beaver

The death of Ken Osmond last week came as a shock to anyone who grew up watching TV's Leave It to Beaver in the early 1960s. The shock for me wasn't that Osmond had died but that he had been alive all this time. The word on the playground in the late 1960s and early '70s ...

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!
