Robby Ameen: Days in the Life

Read "Days in the Life" reviewed by Raul d'Gama Rose


Robby Ameen is one of those first call percussionists who has been chafing at the bit to produce something all his own. Now he has his chance, with Days in the Life and he acquits himself with excellence. Things might have very well gone awry, as so often happens when self producing a first record. This, ...

Ned Otter: Powder Keg

Read "Powder Keg" reviewed by John Kelman


Tenor saxophonist Ned Otter may not be a well-known name, but any recording which enlists the talents of pianist Harold Mabern and drummer Billy Higgins, plus the impeccable ears and engineering skills of Rudy van Gelder is—at least—worth investigating. With a session that could have been simply another competent post bop recording of a couple of ...

Ned Otter: So Little Time

Read "So Little Time" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey


A Brilliant Throwback...   One of the big differences between Be Bop and Hard Bop is the tempo. Sure there are many Hard Bop anthems that are plenty fast. But most of them make me think of Bobby Timmon's “Moanin'." Another difference is the band lineup. Trumpet, tenor, and trombone generally fronted the great Jazz Messengers. ...

Ned Otter: So Little Time

Read "So Little Time" reviewed by Mark Corroto


The possibilities of making jazz music these days are unlimited. Consider the Herbie Nichols Project, Mingus Big Band, or recent revival in jazz-fusion (cleverly disguised as the new “jamband” phenomena).

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!
