David L. Harris: Blues I Felt

Read "Blues I Felt" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


The blues isn't merely a form or genre. It's an emotional response, a personal internalization of an idea that invites extemporization in its reflection.

Tyree Glenn / Hank Jones Quintet/Sextet: Complete Recordings

Read "Complete Recordings" reviewed by Joe Alterman

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!
