Read "Two Miles a Day" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Potrei iniziare questa recensione raccontandovi di Jacob Sacks e Eivind Opsvik, l’uno pianista del Michigan e l’altro contrabbassista norvegese, e di come i due, davanti ad una tazza di caffé, abbiano deciso di invitare Paul Motian in sala d’incisione.

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.
